2016 Nissan Altima is now ready to reach its first clients. The Japanese sedan arrives in showrooms and can be bought if you can spare your family budget of 22.500 USD.
To be sure the new Altima attracts the US customers, Nissan thought of a 2016 model with a long list of enhancements including a refreshed exterior following the new Nissan "Energetic Flow" design language introduced on the all-new 2015 Murano and 2016 Maxima. The redesign offers a new lowered muscular front fascia, distinctive V-motion grille, new hood and fenders and available signature LED boomerang headlights and Daytime Running Lights.
The Altima model lineup has been expanded for 2016 with a new Altima SR grade featuring 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, smoked headlights, paddle shifters, rear spoiler, unique suspension tuning and sport interior accents.
The list of available Altima Safety Shield technologies has also been expanded and includes Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), radar-based Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Forward Emergency Braking (FEB), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).
The 2016 Altima grade levels also feature retuned steering and suspension. Performance has been improved with the Xtronic transmission’s third-generation D-step logic, which simulates traditional automatic transmission shift points.
The new Altima interior design includes a new C-stack and cupholder design, available 5.0-inch and 7.0-inch displays, Zero Gravity seats, soft-touch seat and door panel materials and custom finishers.
With the addition of the new SR model, the 2016 Altima is available in a choice of seven models – 2.5, 2.5 S, 2.5 SR, 2.5 SV, 2.5 SL, 3.5 SR and 3.5 SL. The five 2.5-liter models feature a 182-horsepower 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine, while 3.5-liter Altimas offer a 270-horsepower 3.5-liter DOHC V6.
