18. Nissan Altima
2019 Sales: 51,480
Vs. 2018: -5.3 %
Once Nissan’s best-selling model, the Altima has experienced a decline over the last two years, allowing the hot-selling Rogue to claim its position as the top-selling Nissan in America. Nissan had hopes of reversing that trend with an all-new Altima introduced for the 2019 model year; although sales were up slightly in March compared to a year ago, overall numbers are still in decline. The new Altima features updated styling inside and out as well as a range of new features. Two powertrains are offered, including the first production engine that uses variable compression — a lower compression ratio provides more power, while a higher ratio gets better fuel economy. Nissan also offers the new Altima with all-wheel drive for the first time.
