Is Nissan's Altima the Ultimate Sedan?

Although the Mazda6 won AutoGuide.com’s huge midsize-sedan comparison there are some buyers that want extra power from a four-door car without having to pay a lot more, or sacrifice fuel efficiency. The Altima 3.5 deserves the attention of these people.

Nissan’s fully loaded offering is equipped with many of the same modern features found in the Mazda plus a powerful V6 engine, something that’s becoming quite rare in the segment. With extra cylinders and displacement you might just be surprised how well this car fares in testing.
