2012 Nissan Altima

Safety
Every Altima comes standard with anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags, driver and front-passenger seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and roof-mounted curtain side-impact airbags. The safety for the Nissan Altima is based on the review of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The IIHS ranked the 2011 Nissan Altima as “Good” in safety. It also ranks four out of five stars by the Federal Government (NHTSA). These are very impressive results. That is why so many people with families choose a mid-size sedan. They are well known for their reliability and their safety on the road.

Verdict
You will like this car if you are looking for a classic sedan that offers comfort and stability. The keyless entry system and remote control of the front windows offers an ease of use that you will love every time your hands are full.

The new 2.5 S version of the Nissan Altima does offer several nice features that are common on vehicles that cost much more. However, the driving experience lags behind that of the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. If you are seeking touches of luxury yet need to stay in a budget, this new Nissan might be the right car for you.
