The all-new sporty trim introduced for the 2016 year model upgrades the Nissan Altima to 18-inch alloy wheels as well as rear spoiler and a sport-tuned suspension. To help deliver an even sportier feel, sport seats are added in addition to paddle shifters for simulated manual shift control.
Standard safety isn’t taken for granted on the Nissan Altima; it's covered front and sides by airbags while the 2.5S trim and above are equipped with a standard rearview camera. Advanced, crash-prevention systems are also available, helping the Altima to earn the title of Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS.
Better equipped than ever before, the Nissan Altima now includes more impressive convenience features like push button start and the Nissan Intelligent Key. Never again will you have to put a key in the ignition to start or stop your vehicle, and you can have the cabin warmed up or cooled to the perfect temperature before getting in.
The 2016 Nissan Altima is available in seven main versions: 2.5, 2.5 S, 2.5 SR, 2.5 SV, 2.5 SL, 3.5 SR, and 3.5 SL. (There also are a number of packaging options depending on which trim level you do select.) The 2.5 Altima models are powered by a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that produces 182 horsepower and manage a respectable fuel economy rating of 27 city/ 29 hwy mpg.
The higher end 3.5 Altima models exchange Nissan’s 4-cylinder engine for a mighty powerful 3.5L V6 that fires up 270 horsepower and manages to still earn 22 city/ 32 hwy mpg. As one of the more powerful midsize sedans within the segment, the Nissan Altima does an excellent job of blending power with fuel efficiency while delivering a smooth and comfortable ride.
Each Nissan Altima trim level continues to improve by embellishing the interior with finer features and creating an even more comfortable and convenient ride. The standard features list for the base level Altima includes the following:
