Why Was the 2019 Nissan Altima Named One of the Best New Cars of 2019?

“Altima impresses us with a premium interior that makes you feel like you’re in a much more expensive car, especially in the higher trims. It also has available all-wheel drive, making it stand out compared to the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. Another thing that makes the new Altima special is the available VC-Turbo variable compression engine, which delivers more power when you need it and more efficiency at cruising speeds.”
