Nissan’s success in the popular mid-size family sedan segment dates back to 1993 with the introduction of the very first Altima. Now in its sixth generation, the 2018 Nissan Altima is one of the most popular sedans in the class, and it’s consistently one of the country’s best-selling cars. Last year Americans bought over 250,000 Altimas, which also makes it Nissan’s best-selling passenger car.
Nissan builds the Altima in Smyrna, Tennessee, and this fun-to-drive standout offers inspired performance, upscale style, and a luxurious interior at a starting price under $25,000. For 2018, Nissan has also made it safer adding automatic emergency braking and a forward-collision warning to the sedan’s list of standard features. It’s a unique combination that keeps the Altima near the top of a class packed with popular family four-doors, including the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Mazda6, Hyundai Sonata, Ford Fusion, and Chevrolet Malibu.
