The Car Guide rating 67%(view ratings)
The 2018 Altima’s days are numbered, especially since a brand-new 2019 version that borrows design elements from the Vmotion 2.0 prototype is set to make its debut in early 2018. The new version will also have a “floating” screen on the dashboard. The 2018 model, however, gets autonomous emergency braking this year. Under the hood, the 179-horsepower, 2.5L four-cylinder is back along with the 270-horsepower, 3.5L V6. All Altimas are equipped with a CVT automatic and front-wheel drive.
