p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }

All four-cylinder Altima sedan models (and four-cylinder Altima Coupes with the CVT) come with fuel economy ratings of 23 mpg city, 32 highway. That's very respectable for the class, but not quite on par with a number of mid-size models—such as the Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima, which both get 35 mpg highway. As for V-6 models they're about what you'd expect for the class, at 20 mpg city, 27 highway.

The 2011 Nissan Altima Hybrid is another story altogether; thanks to its sophisticated hybrid system, it achieves 33 mpg both in the city and on the highway. That places it among the lowest vehicles its size for carbon footprint.

The 2011 Nissan Altima is about average for fuel efficiency in its mid-size class; but the Altima Hybrid is one of the greenest picks.
