The Nissan Altima Might Be a Little Less Boring in 2023

The Nissan Altima Might Be a Little Less Boring in 2023

Comes with a tweaked front fascia, an optional 12.3-inch display, and a few added standard safety features

Being a toned-down version of the Maxima, the Altima has been one of the most value-for-money compact sedans with a starting price lower than $25,000. And while it is Nissan’s go-to budget car, it receives a few updates for 2023 to keep it fresh and modern. For example, the exterior has a sportier appearance with an updated grille, front bumper, new wheel designs, and two new exterior colors. However, the cabin design remains mostly unchanged. But a new 12.3-inch infotainment display is standard on the SL and SR, while available as an option for the SV. A set of new driver assistance features are added to the list, too, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and blindspot monitoring.

Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2023 Audi A6

The Audi A6 is due for a facelift this year, but don’t expect it to come with a whole lot of changes

Audi has been working on the A6 facelift. Currently in its fifth generation, the current A6 came out in 2018 and this seems like the right time (or is Audi a little late?) to refresh the luxury sedan. It was spotted sometime last year as well, but this time, two examples of the facelift A6 were spotted standing together in the parking lot. They did have some wrap on them, but there’s enough for us to decode the changes.

Rolls-Royce has rejigged the Phantom for the 2023 model year, but the changes aren’t too significant

Rolls-Royce has finally updated the eighth-gen Phantom after five long years. The automaker has mentioned that the changes to the updated model are based on inputs from its clients.

In fact, Rolls-Royce doesn’t even call it a facelift. It has been labeled as a ‘new expression’.

2023 Kia SOUL

2023 Kia SOUL

The 2023 Kia Soul comes with the typical facelift traits - redesigned exterior, new features on the inside, and some tweaks under the hood

Just like the Nissan Juke, the SOUL has a boxy design that helps it stand out in the crowd. Of course, over its relatively short history, the SOUL stopped being as angular as it was when launched back in 2008, but still, it is very easy to recognize for what it is.

The third generation arrived in the States for the 2020 model year, and since then, it suffered minor changes constantly, including dropping the manual gearbox for the 2022 model year. The 2023 model year will once again offer some changes, including losing the 201-horsepower, 1.6-liter gasoline engine.

2022 Buick Enclave

2022 Buick Enclave

The Buick Enclave has been updated for the 2022 model year, with design elements inspired by the Envision and the Encore GX

Judging a book by its cover is something we shouldn’t do, and it applies to us in daily life, including when we choose cars. This flagship seven-seater SUV is so much more than you thought it to be. The 2022 Enclave is not all-new, but has received a major facelift, which makes it look even more attractive on the outside. Although it uses the same drivetrain, which is the 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V-6, it never fails to offer punchy and refined drive quality. The interior is not as flashy as the X5 or the Q8, but the price tag of $42,800 makes the Enclave a better value proposition. If you are curious about its competitors, there is the Acura MDX, Mazda CX-9, and even the Volvo XC90. So, should you consider the 2022 facelifted Enclave, or other SUVs in the segment? We are here to let you know the full picture.
