2 of 23

10) 2018 Nissan Altima

Base Price: $23,260

Overview (U.S. News Overall Score: 8.1/10): The Nissan Altima has a fuel-efficient base engine, spacious and comfortable seats, and an exciting (optional) V6 engine. However, the Altima’s aging infotainment system, somewhat bland cabin design, and weak base engine keep it from ranking higher.

Safety (U.S. News Score: 9.7/10): The 2018 Altima comes standard with predictive forward collision warning, a rearview camera, and automatic forward emergency braking. If you’re willing to pay a little extra, you can add front and rear parking sensors, rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and blind spot monitoring. The Altima earned a five-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Reliability (U.S. News Score: 4/5): The 2018 Altima has yet to be given a reliability score. However, the mechanically similar 2017 model earned a score of four out of five. That score is above-average, putting the Altima close to the top in terms of reliability.
