Which sedan is better: Altima or Malibu?

The most interesting available feature of the Altima is the inclusion of available all-wheel drive! Most sedans do not offer all-wheel drive as a feature, but the Altima offers all-wheel drive across almost its entire lineup including the base S trim level. The Malibu doesn’t offer all-wheel drive at all.

When it comes to horsepower, the Sentra comes out well on top with 28 additional horsepower, and that much of a difference will not go unnoticed. If you want even more power, you can get the Altima with a turbo powerplant that outputs up to 236 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque.

When it comes to features, the Altima is prepared to impress with standard automatic emergency braking. That’s a valuable safety feature that you have to go up several trim levels on the Malibu to get to. Along with automatic emergency braking, you get blind-spot warning, high beam assist, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and more. Another interesting safety feature that the Altima has available that can’t be found at all on the Malibu is a 360-degree camera system that allows for a complete view of your sedan’s immediate surroundings. How futuristic is that?
