With the fuel efficient 182-hp engine, you'll get both efficient performance and the long lasting value you deserve. Amazing gas mileage and strong, smooth power delivery add up to a winning combination.
The Altima’s CVT virtually eliminates gears by using a single metal belt that runs around a pair of variable-diameter pulleys. Once a transmission isn’t limited by fixed gears, it can operate far more effectively. So whatever your right foot asks for, CVT responds with the perfect engine speed.
A Nissan first, the Altima is equipped with Active Understeer Control to give you a smooth, controlled, and comfortable ride. The system senses understeer and oversteer and subtly applies braking power to the inside wheels when you are turning, giving you sharper handling in all conditions.
Dual chrome exhaust finishers add a subtle touch of aggressive styling to the Altima.
The Altima’s windows are made of UV-reducing solar glass to help shield occupants from harmful UV rays.
Those chiseled curves and muscular lines aren’t just for show—they reduce drag, allowing the Altima to slip through the air with more ease and less resistance than ever. The hood, front fascia, mirrors, and even the taillights, have been engineered to help drop the coefficient of drag to a slippery 0.29. A lower coefficient of drag means better handling and, most importantly, better fuel efficiency.
Advanced Drive-Assist® Display is an innovative new system designed to help keep you focused on the road. The crystal-clear, 4.3-inch LCD screen is centered in the instrument cluster and displays call interactions, service warnings and more. Additional available features include navigation settings, text messaging, maps, and travel directions.
The Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System activates via steering-wheel-mounted controls and streams songs from your phone's music player. Now you can keep up connections no matter where the road takes you.
Cargo versatility is right behind you. The standard 60/40 split fold-down rear seat folds completely flat and locks, giving you more space options and a bigger cargo area with room for those longer items like skis or golf clubs.
With the standard Push Button Ignition feature, you just put your key in the slot, push the button, and go.
Keeping everyone cool. The Altima is equipped with a standard air conditioner.
Take away the guesswork when it comes to your tire pressure with Altima’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System. A signal illuminates on your dash to tell you when your tire pressure is low, and while filling your tires, the class-exclusive Easy-Fill Tire Alert gives you a friendly beep of the horn when you’ve reached the right pressure.
This standard feature—sometimes called stability control—continuously monitors your steering and braking actions, senses any oversteer or understeer, and compensates by reducing engine speed and/or applying brake pressure to specific wheels. In addition, the Traction Control System can sense front wheel slip or spin and responds by instantly helping reduce throttle which helps you both regain grip and maintain control of the road.
This innovative braking system responds automatically to changing conditions. ABS helps you maintain control by working to prevent wheel lockup during emergency braking situations. And if the rear of Altima is weighted with passengers, cargo, or even just a full tank of gas, Electronic Brake force Distribution sends extra force to the rear brakes to compensate.
Nissan Advanced Air Bag System includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. The inflation rate of these dual-stage air bags adjusts depending on crash severity and seat belt usage. In addition, two supplemental air bags are built into the front seats to offer side impact protection and move with you as you adjust your seating position. Also, roof-mounted curtain side impact supplemental air bags help provide head protection for both rows of outboard occupants.
LATCH is another way we’re working to keep children safe. The Altima LATCH system lets you secure LATCH-compatible child restraints in the back seat without having to use seat belts or a locking clip.
