2020 Nissan Altima vs. Its Competition

2020 Nissan Altima
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Honda Accord leads the pack, and frankly, doesn’t feel like it’s playing the same sport.

It’s nicer than it needs to be and is a must-try for any buyer.

The Camry is good, but its hybrid powertrain is the star.

It’s efficient and quiet.

The Malibu still offers good space for adults with a domestic badge affixed.

The Legacy is new this year and rides atop a more competent chassis.

The Sonata has daring looks, but we haven’t yet driven it.

We’ll report back once we do.
