Im not a very big fan of the altima in general.
The newest one looks odd in the front imo.

What are its rivals? I say Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Ford Taurus, Dodge Sebring, and Hyundai Sonata.

New Altima looks like a grandma's car. I prefer the older Altimas--the 2002-2012 models, they look like Dodge Intrepids/Chargers smashed into a 2000-2007 Ford Taurus.

I believe those lap times are for the V6 SE-R that had 260 horses and a 6 speed manual. Dont know why someone posted the low end trim with the 4 banger rather than the V6. I wouldnt delete the lap times.. I would change the page to the V6 model to match the laps.

The SE-R had a 0-60 time of 5.9 seconds and were pretty quick little cars. Nissan was so proud of them that they had a commercial bragging about the 0-60 time and top speed of 146 mph. At that time the top speed and acceleration was well beyond the competition in this class of cars.

The new altimas/maximas are garbage. They all come with the CVT transmission that ruins the cars for me. Always loved those cars and would own the current generation maxima if they still offered a manual.

The laptimes seem very optimistic. I don't think it faster than the BMW 530d, BMW M6 and the Camaro SS.
