Consumer Reports recently praised Altima by placing it on its list of cars with the best brakes -- important features for any commuter in bumper-to-bumper traffic during rush hour. To help keep the car steady when the brakes are applied, the Altima comes standard with four-wheel antilock brakes and electronic brake-force distribution.

The sedan also comes standard with a hands-free Bluetooth phone system, which is activated by controls that are located on the steering wheel.

The Altima boasts a roomy interior, with rear seats that fold completely flat and provide ample room for clients' golf clubs or briefcases.

The vehicle comes in eight different colors.
