The 2019 Nissan Altima earns Best In Class award from NEMPA. Here's why.

Accepting the award for Nissan was Steven Oldham. Steven is Nissan's East Coast Communications Manager and one of the most supportive of the manufacturer's representatives in the industry. The award was presented by John Paul, AAA's Car Doctor, and NEMPA President.

The Altima earned many votes for its new all-wheel-drive system. One of the only affordable midsized sedans offering all-wheel drive, the Altima is perfectly equipped to handle tough New England winters. With a very easy to use infotainment system, equipped with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the Altima is an easy vehicle to make work. Note that the Toyota Camry does not offer this level of equipment on any trim.

The Altima is also noteworthy for its incredibly comfortable zero-gravity seats. The Altima is also an easy pick for families given its Top Safety Pick designation by the Insurance Institute For Highway Safety. Technology in the Altima also earns it some votes. The standard active safety systems and available Pro Pilot Assist put the Altima at the top of the market for driver aids.
