The Altima sold best when it had a manual and a SE-R model. When the 350z inspired dash, suspension tuning and design disappeared, so did the Altima. Crossovers are taking over because companies are TRYING to push them. Their campaign to sell crossovers has convinced the mindless drone society to buy them. If marketing said you can daily and buy groceries in a sports car? They'd buy them. Porsche 911 sells so many cuz the drones believe it's practical.

The Altima is the best all round vehicle in Nissan but... I think Hyundai and Kia SEDANS are growing because the avoid CVT technology. CVT puts such a damper in the driving experience. And though less people care about performance. The need for agile steering and SMOOTH engine transmission harmony is still a thing. That's something CVT's just can't do. As Nissan and Subaru force feed the CVT. Hyundai gives you a dual clutch or traditional auto alternative.

Stop being stubborn Nissan. Kill the CVT. Even Mikey likes life. Not the CVT.

I look forward to seeing these all beat up and swerving across the highway.

I have trouble believing people who buy these care about the transmission or even know what a CVT is. They buy it because of how it looks and the price. The target Altima buyer (younger, lower/middle class) in general don't care about cars or performance anymore. I've had people in my classes say they just drive "a honda / nissan" and not even know what the model is.
