2022 Nissan Altima vs. Its Competition

2022 Nissan Altima
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Altima has some voluptuous, tech-saturated rivals among family four-door sedans.

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 Legacy was new last year and rides atop a more competent chassis.

The latest Sonata has daring looks, a new hybrid model, and makes big leaps in technology and luxury features—as does the related Kia K5.
