Midsized Cars: Nissan Altima 3.5 SL
In the midsized car category, the Nissan Altima 3.5 SL ranked worst in value. Starting from $31,470, the Altima is more expensive than a comparable Toyota Camry while lacking the same reliability and dependability the Camry offers. What really hurts the Altima however is that it’s estimated to nearly half of its value over five years of ownership. It’s not very fuel efficient either with a 22 mpg city, 31 mpg highway rating, meaning you’ll be spending more at the pump compared to other vehicles in the segment. It is however powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes a respectable 270 hp, mated to an Xtronic CVT.
