2020 Nissan Altima

Looking more like a baby Maxima, Nissan’s bread-and-butter midsize sedan has recaptured its mojo to once again become an alluring choice for those still not enamored with the pivot towards crossover SUVs. Is the Altima a better car than the Accord?  No.  The Camry?  Very close.  Either way, they’re all solid selections and your decision will likely come down to intangibles and what you prioritize in a car.  MSRP of my tester is $38,840. https://testdrivenow.com/2020-nissan-altima/

With its captivating performance stance, 19-inch diamond-cut wheels, boomerang signature LED lighting framing the enlarged V-motion grille, the new 2019 Nissan Maxima continues to build on its legacy as the flagship of Nissan’s sedan lineup. The mid-cycle Maxima refresh follows the introduction of the all-new 2019 Nissan Altima, creating a potent one-two punch in the mid-size sedan segment. While the 2019 Maxima exterior projects an enhanced sense of aggressive style, the heart and soul of Maxima remains its 300-horsepower 3.5-liter VQ-series V6 engine and performance-oriented Xtronic transmission. The engine applies lessons learned from the Nissan GT-R, such as sodium filled valves, to achieve a high specific output of 85.7 horsepower/liter. Torque is rated at 261 lb-ft.
The 2019 Maxima is available in five well-equipped models: Maxima S, SV, SL, SR and Platinum.
