1999 Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima, which was redesigned in 1998, saw very few changes for the 1999 model year. The biggest change was the addition of a new trim, the SE Limited, which had a sportier suspension, more luxury features, and special badging.

The 1999 Altima came in five trims: the base XE, the midrange GXE, the sporty SE and SE Limited, and the luxury GLE. The GXE was the most popular model, and the GLE came standard with leather seating and a power driver's seat. All Altimas in the lineup shared a 2.4 liter, 150 horsepower four cylinder engine. Fuel economy is 21/29 mpg.

The Altima is popular because it offers a good value  but doesn't feel like an economy car. Drivers praise the 1999 Altima for its reliability and ample trunk space. Some owners find that the styling is a little bland.
