7. Nissan Altima
Recently Nissan has been stepping up its game in a number of ways, creating and recreating vehicles that are incredibly compelling. The current Altima is arguably the most attractive form the midsize sedan has taken on yet, plus it is an affordable option for anyone on a tight budget. Despite its low cost, Nissan spared no expense in making it an exceptionally safe vehicle. It features a zone body construction to help keep crash forces away from the occupants, plus Vehicle Dynamic Control to help avoid accidents. For these reasons and more the Altima has also been let into the exclusive club of cars the IIHS has named to the Top Safety Pick+ list.
