Nissan’s Altima sedan has been setting record sales numbers year after year. To keep the moment going, the Japanese automaker has introduced a major update that sees the car adopt the sporty look of its Maxima big brother.

Another car that’s been updated is the Volkswagen Passat. This is the version of the Passat that’s built and sold in the United States. It may not look as handsome as the Passat sold almost everywhere else, but it does come with some decent technology and a stellar price tag.

We’ve taken a quick spin in the all-new Audi A4, due to go on sale early next year. Though the styling may be evolutionary, there’s a brand new platform with new engines and technology within.
