Nissan's big seller, the Altima, received a bit of a facelift for the 2016 model year. The main differences are in the front and rear: Larger headlights, grille and taillights. Underneath the skin, the changes are minimal, though. This is still Nissans answer to the Camry, and Accord. It's more of a utility than anything else.

I drive a similar Accord LX with a 5-speed and 179hp. I would get the Altima as I am a Nissan fan - but not the CVT. At least I can race through the gears and imagine I am Mario Andretti.

or since he was a part of GRM I should say Al Unser?

The Altima SE-R was a great car, wish they'd bring back some performance models.

I drove the last iteration with both the five-speed and the auto. If you enjoy driving but need a Utility Family Machine, I would choose this one over the the Camry, fusion, or anything else in this class.
