Pros: Full features, good power, safe, good value
Cons: Gas mileage not quite as good as the Prius
I only considered the Altima and the Prius seriously, and I went for the Altima primarily because it has more power/acceleration. I moved from a BMW 5-series so the bar was set high, but the Altima has really delivered. It's very good all around, including all the emenities - bluetooth, Bose stereo, rear view camera, etc - excellent value.
