Car Profiles - Nissan Altima

NISSAN ALTIMA

Reviving an unsuccessful nameplate which replaces an unsuccessful vehicle (the Teana, itself the third generation model) may be something weird but do not fret, the third generation Teana is based on the Altima sold in the USA. Virtues include a responsive CVT and a spacious cabin.

The Good: Acceleration happy engines
The Bad: Headroom may be lacking for some

Price Range: P1,745,000
