The 2011 Nissan Altima is clearly more stylish than competitors like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, and the line includes both a coupe and a hybrid.
While it’s not quite as roomy inside as some mid-size rivals, the 2011 Altima has held up decently since its 2007 debut. It remains one of the sportiest and most fun-to-drive entries in this segment. The exterior lines are simple but racy, and inside, the instrument panel is straightforward, foregoing the overwrought stylistic flourishes of others in the class.
Like most rivals except the 2011 Hyundai Sonata, the Nissan Altima offers both a four (a 175-hp, 2.5-liter) and a V-6 (a 270-hp, 3.5-liter). The company’s Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT) automatic is fitted to both engines, except for the Coupe, which offers a six-speed manual with either engine. The V-6 is a variant of the same engine used in the 370Z sports car, which helps explain 0-to-60-mph times of less than 6 seconds with that engine.
