Editor's Overview

Nissan has crafted its 2017 Altima sedan to be more competitive with the Chrysler 200 and Ford Fusion, giving it more styling, a better interior and more cutting-edge features, all while keeping its price low and quality high. Unlike many competitors, the 2017 Altima sedan offers buyers a choice between a fuel-efficient 4-cylinder and a more potent V6.

Sleek sporty feel with large sedan space!

My Altima is the 3rd Nissan I have owned, and I absolutely love it. It is reliable and gets great gas mileage, even with all the city driving I do in metro Atlanta. Even better, it is sleek and stylish, a 4-door sedan with a sporty look and feel yet no shortage of interior space or trunk space. There's so much room in the back seats that my 6'3" dad can comfortably sit in the back! The safety features of the rear camera and blind spot sensors make it easy to drive in hectic parking lots and the insane traffic of Atlanta. This is by far my favorite car I have owned! I am a dedicated Nissan customer for life after 3 wonderful Nissan purchases and owner experiences with each!

Comfortable ride in town or for those long trips!

I drive quite a bit for work so spend a lot of time in this vehicle. It currently has 34, 000 miles and I have had no issues at all. I do keep up with the maintenance (oil changes etc.). It rides very smooth. Comfort is very important since I spend so much time in my car and I am very happy with the comfort of the seats on my longer trips. The back seat is very roomie for passengers. I was originally worried about trunk space as I had an SUV prior to this but I was pleasantly surprised by how spacious the trunk was. I feel very safe in the vehicle which was also a concern since I had a larger vehicle prior. Great vehicle in a great price range.

It is really good on gas, especially on the freeway.

The rubber around the doors are not durable. They are worn in less than a year. Drives well, like the camera for when I am backing up. Also like the anti-collision feature that alerts me when I want to merge and another car is on my side. The trunk space is smaller than my previous car. Wish it was a little bigger. Wish the driver seat could go back a little more because I am pretty tall. Like that I can use Bluetooth and change volume on my steering wheel. Like that I can respond to texts and speak on the phones with no hands.
