The premium exterior design of the Nissan Altima®, from the powerful lines to the available LED headlights, is a modern vision shaped in the wind tunnel, then achieved through innovative manufacturing processes. The result? A beautifully designed sedan that turns heads as much for its looks as it does for its craftsmanship.
SLIP THROUGH THE AIR:
Nissan Altima®'s aerodynamic exterior design is further enhanced by the available Active Grille Shutters (4-cylinder trims only) that automatically close at highway speeds to decrease wind resistance and boost efficiency.
THE FACE OF ICONIC STYLE: The redesigned grille gives the Altima® a more aggressive, signature look that hints at this vehicle’s thrilling capabilities.
MAKE A BRILLIANT ENTRANCE: Altima®’s available LED headlights with integrated signature make an unforgettable impression – day or night.
LEAVE A LASTING IMPRESSION: Nissan Altima®’s premium taillights are brilliant not only for their stylish, integrated design, but also for their incredible visibility.
WHERE COMFORT TAKES THE LEAD:
The beautifully designed interior greets you with available luxurious, soft leather-appointed seats. From there, you’ll notice the intuitive layout of the driver-centric cockpit. All around you, style, comfort, and quality materials are there to remind you, Altima® puts a premium on making you comfortable.
DUAL ZONE CLIMATE CONTROL:
Keep the peace. With available dual zone climate control, you and your front passenger can cool or heat your side of the cabin just the way you like it. Available large rear air vents ensure your rear passengers receive the same level of comfort.
TAKE A SEAT IN THE SPOTLIGHT:
The redesigned center stack has a more ergonomic layout, giving you easy access to all the controls. Another benefit? Its clean design adds to the premium feel of the interior. More proof Altima® is all about you.
RECONNECT WITH YOUR LOVE OF DRIVING
Altima® SR puts you in the middle of the excitement. The specially tuned sport suspension begs you to push it through corners, while steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters keep you close to the action. If you love to drive, this is where you want to be.
A STUNNING LOOK LIGHTS THE WAY:
Setting the Altima® SR apart even further, the specially designed smoked headlights let everyone know this vehicle takes style as seriously as it does performance.
PRESENTING A NEW SPIN ON THRILLS:
Designed specifically for the SR, the 18'' aluminum-alloy sport wheels not only keep the weight down for better performance, but show the competition this vehicle isn’t just talk.
EFFICIENCY IS ON THE HORIZON:
With Nissan’s Xtronic CVT® transmission, you have a virtually gearless road warrior. It can hold the engine at the ideal rpm for the job, providing a wave of power when you need it and running low rpm for quiet, efficient cruising when you don’t.
STAY ON TRACK:
Active Understeer Control reads the cornering situation and, if needed, brakes the appropriate wheel to help you steer through the turn. Handling is further enhanced by Altima®’s rear multi-link suspension, giving you the sensation of riding on rails.
The Nissan Safety Shield® philosophy is a comprehensive approach to safety that guides the development and engineering of every vehicle we make. It’s our way of looking out for you and yours.
6 AIR BAGS:
The Nissan Advanced Air Bag System features 6 standard air bags: dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seatbelt and occupant classification sensors, front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags, and roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags with rollover sensor.
NISSAN SAFETY SHIELD TECHNOLOGIES:
What if extra reassurance was easy to spot? Altima®’s available Safety Shield Technologies offer you a suite of advanced systems — from Blind Spot Warning to Predictive Forward Collision Warning to Forward Emergency Braking — that help monitor, respond and protect.
REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT:
When backing out of a parking space, this available feature can detect and warn you about vehicles you might not see behind you that are approaching from either side.
BLIND SPOT WARNING:
With this available feature, when a vehicle is detected in the blind spot area, an indicator appears in the driver’s or front passenger’s door and on the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display. Put your turn signal on, and the indicator flashes with a warning chime.
PREDICTIVE FORWARD COLLISION WARNING AND FORWARD EMERGENCY BRAKING:
This available system uses radar to constantly monitor not just one vehicle ahead in your lane, but two. When it detects sudden deceleration, it gives you an audible warning and a visual signal on the instrument panel. Forward Emergency Braking keeps an eye on your speed and proximity to the vehicle ahead and can apply brakes if you fail to respond.
When you’re in Reverse, the available RearView Monitor shows what’s directly behind you and helps make backing up and parking easier.
MEET YOUR ENTOURAGE:
Let our people look after you and your people. With available NissanConnectSM Services Powered by SiriusXM®, you have a selection of plans and services ranging from remote start access on your phone to calling for help if the system senses there’s been an accident. Hey, that’s what friends are for.
ADVANCED DRIVE ASSIST® DISPLAY:
The vital stats, at a glance. From turn-by-turn directions to caller ID, the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display serves up info right in front of you.
The available Bose® Premium Audio System fills the Altima® with music of both depth and precision. Nine speakers, custom-tuned to the cabin’s acoustics, channel sound throughout the vehicle, for an expansive musical experience.
Parallel parking made easy. Giving you a view of what’s directly behind you, the RearView Monitor makes backing up an easier task. Green, yellow, and red indicators also help you gauge how close you are to objects – a real help in tight spaces.
REMOTE ENGINE START SYSTEM:
It's never been easier to rev things up. With the Nissan Intelligent Key® in your pocket or purse, and standard Push Button Start, just get in, push the button, and go. Start your Altima® remotely, and the cabin will warm up or cool down to a comfortable temperature before you even get in. Starts your vehicle for 10 minutes with normal use – up to 20 minutes with extended time feature Dealer-installed.
