When shopping for a new four-door sedan, you may end up comparing cars like the Altima and Fusion. Both of these come with a striking design and quality engineering, but there are reasons the Nissan Altima may stand apart from the competition. From fuel economy and power to interior space, here are some reasons to consider the Altima.
Power and Efficiency. The Altima averages 38 highway mpg* when properly equipped, which helps you save money at the pump. The Fusion, on the other hand, gets around 34 highway mpg.* For those who want added fuel economy, the Altima may be the right option. Plus, the standard four-cylinder Altima has up to 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque, while the four-cylinder Fusion has 175 horsepower. That means you can also get more power when you choose the Altima.
Interior Space. The Altima and Fusion are similar sizes, but the Altima does have extra space in a few areas. For example, the front head room measures 40 inches and the front leg room measures 45 inches. Both of these measurements are more than in the Fusion—a small difference can greatly improve your comfort.
