The Nissan Altima has been a very popular family sedan for a very long time and now the 2012 Nissan Altima comes back in the extremely competitive mid-size sedan market with a completely new and updated design. The car impresses in the very first look and is extremely beautiful to look at. With all the added tech and beautiful aesthetics, this car definitely makes an amazing first impression, but is it as beautiful and well-behaved under its hood?
Its new 2.5L engine does provide an amazing response. There is a turbo option available as well for an additional $4000 and an AWD drivetrain for $1350 more. These additions make the car far more powerful than other sedans in the same range and bring it at par with the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry. The turbo engine offers adequate low-end torque and the CVT gearbox does not disappoint either.
