Consider a used 2016 Nissan Altima, if you want a sedan that offers exemplary fuel-economy and driving manners.
This oustanding car runs on a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which cranks out a brawny 182 hp and 180 pound-feet of torque. But those aren’t the only big figures you’ll get with the Altima. The 2016 model also boasts an outstanding EPA rating of 27 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway.
A review by The Car Connection points out that Nissan has long been the leader in continuously variable transmission, which is quite evident with the Altima. The CVT changes gears seamlessly as you accelerate. Hit the onramp and this sedan will propel you to 60 mph in a little less than 8 seconds. Select sport-shift mode and add a bit of fun to your time behind the wheel.
Around town, the ride is comfortable, but not to the point that you experience body roll. The Altima is most at home when tackling windy hairpin turns, thanks to crisp steering.
