Nissan Altima Press Kit: Overview

With its distinctive exterior design, choice of powerful 4-cylinder or V6 engines, sport-oriented suspension and spacious interior, Altima instills passion with its robust performance and offers an escape from the traditional four-door sedan. Originally launched in , the third generation Altima provides consumers with an unrivaled combination that has quickly made it Nissan’s best selling vehicle.

Refinements for the model year include the addition of four new packages – Special Edition Package, Special Edition Premium Package, Comfort Package and Trip Package. In addition, factory installed satellite radio with a choice of XM® or Sirius™ providers is available.

Altima continues its performance tradition in with a choice of a horsepower* liter V6 engine or horsepower liter 4-cylinder engine. For sport-minded drivers, a horsepower Altima SE-R is available.

The Altima SE-R, introduced in , is the sixth model in the Altima lineup (others include , S, SL, SE and SL), yet in reality it stands alone with a special list of features and equipment designed for the sports enthusiast, such as forged inch wheels, aggressive front fascia, rear spoiler, high-flow mufflers, large diameter chrome dual exhaust finishers and black leather-appointed sport seats.

Passionate Interior Environment
Altima’s large cabin again offers distinctive interior environments that encompass either cloth or optional leather appointments. Three interior choices are available: Charcoal, Blond and Frost.

The instrument panel, designed to fall away from the occupants for increased leg room and improved ingress and egress, is a high tech design with a three-gauge “cockpit” instrument pod with added chrome accents. The gauges feature a Fine Vision meter illumination system for superior gauge visibility for the driver.

The gauge cluster features an available multi-function trip computer, which includes an odometer, twin trip meters and a display for outside air temperature, driving time, average speed, fuel consumption and distance to empty. Altima also offers an available DVD-based navigation system.

The most prominent difference between the SE-R and other Altima models is the SE-R’s three-pod center-mounted gauge package, similar to that found on the legendary Nissan Z®, with volt meter, oil pressure and fuel consumption gauges. Other changes include sport-shaped front seats and headrests with perforated red or gray leather-appointed inserts and matching stitching on the seats, steering wheel and shift knob, dark chrome trim treatment and drilled aluminum pedals. The front seats are also heated, as are the SE-R’s outside mirrors.

For all Altima drivers, there’s a tilt and telescoping 3-spoke steering wheel and gated automatic transmission shifter with a formed gearshift knob design. HVAC and audio controls are grouped in a simple unit that reduces visual complexity for the driver.

Additional features include a roof-mounted map light and sunglass holder. Power windows and locks are standard and windows can be opened remotely via the key fob for cabin venting.

Audio systems include a standard 6-speaker AM/FM/CD with an available in-dash 6-disc CD changer with radio data system (RDS), speed-sensitive volume control and steering wheel audio controls. Optional is a Bose® premium audio system with 8 speakers and AM/FM/in-dash 6-disc CD changer with RDS, speed-sensitive volume control and steering wheel audio controls. For , Altima comes with available factory installed satellite radio.

Altima also features a large trunk with standard cargo net and improved trunk trim. The trunk measures cubic feet.
From a safety standpoint, Altima comes equipped with the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS), dual-stage front air bags, seat belt sensors with front-seat passenger classification sensor, front-seat side supplemental dual-stage air bags and available side curtain air bags. Front-seat active head restraints, 3-point rear seat belts for all seating with adjustable upper anchors, pretensioners and load limiters, emergency inside trunk release, front and rear crushable zones and the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) child seat anchors and tether system are all included in Altima’s long list of safety features.

Expressive Exterior Design
Altima’s exterior design is athletic and bold. Altima’s design begins with its wedge shape with high waistline and pronounced character lines. An arched silhouette slanted back window and integrated front and rear bumper shapes give the sedan a fluid, smooth form. Large and inch wheels give Altima a performance look with an aggressive stance.

Finely crafted combination headlights, with optional xenon bulbs on V6 models and large round taillights give Altima an upscale appearance. Green-tinted UV-reducing solar glass enhances Altima’s luxury look, helps protect interior fabrics and improves passenger comfort.

The Altima SE-R model adds an array of special styling features, including a sporty front fascia, headlight bezel coloring, compact fog lights and dark window molding coloring. In the rear, the SE-R stands out with a unique rear fascia and spoiler, smoked taillights and large dual exhaust finishers. Also visible are side sill spoilers, silver painted front and rear disc brake calipers, with the SE-R logo on the front calipers. SE-R badging is located on the rear of the vehicle.
Altima is assembled at the award-winning Nissan North America Manufacturing Smyrna and Decherd Tennessee plants, and also the Canton Mississippi plant using the Intelligent Body Assembly System (IBAS).

Abundant Performance with Advanced Engine Designs
Altima is powered by a horsepower liter DOHC valve V6 engine with lb-ft of torque. The Altima SE-R’s standard liter DOHC valve V6 engine has been tuned to offer horsepower and lb-ft of torque. The SE-R also offers a performance exhaust system with large outlet pipes.

The liter V6 is part of the VQ engine series, which has been recognized as one of the “Ten Best Engines” by Ward’s Auto World magazine for 12 consecutive years. V6-powered Altimas qualify for Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) status.
Also available on the Altima is a liter DOHC valve 4-cylinder producing horsepower and lb-ft of torque. This engine, called QR25, features a silent chain drive and a balancer system that effectively negates vibrations without taking up much space – combining ideal packaging and smoothness. All 4-cylinder models meet the latest U.S. federal government emissions standards (FED Tier2 Bin5) and available PZEV standards for units sold in California (and other states with California-certified vehicles). Emissions equipment causes nominal reductions in horsepower (from hp to hp) and torque (from lb-ft to lb-ft).

Both engines feature continuously variable valve timing, modular engine design, microfinished crank journals and cam lobes, molybdenum coated lightweight pistons and electronically controlled throttles.

Backing either engine is a choice of 5-speed manual (not available on SL 4-cylinder models), 4-speed electronically controlled automatic (4-cylinder models) or 5-speed electronically controlled automatic with manual shift mode (standard on SL, optional on SE). A 6-speed manual transmission is standard on the Altima SE-R (with the 5-speed automatic transmission optionally available).

Automatic transmission-equipped V6 Altimas offer an available traction control system. This system uses a combination of throttle, fuel cutoff and shift schedule to help aid traction in off-the-line starts and slippery situations. A gallon fuel tank is designed to provide a long range between fill-ups.

The Altima features a front suspension design with extensive use of aluminum parts, which is eight percent lighter than a comparable steel design. A cradle-type frame with an offset coil spring and lower transverse link layout provides better handling and riding performance, cutting 30 percent of lateral forces acting on the front suspension.

The rear multi-link independent suspension was adapted from the Japanese-market Nissan Skyline supercar and is similar to Infiniti’s flagship Q45 sedan. The rear shocks and springs are separated for reduced friction and the shock is in line with the center of the rear wheels, providing better damping and less harshness. In addition, the rear suspension is approximately six percent lighter than the rear suspension in the previous generation Altima.

All 4-cylinder Altimas come with /60R16 tires on either steel or aluminum-alloy wheels and V6 models feature standard inch aluminum-alloy wheels and /55R17 tires.

The SE-R comes with /45R18 Y-speed rated summer tires mounted on unique inch forged alloy wheels.
Braking is provided by standard 4-wheel disc brakes with an optional 4-wheel,

4-channel, 4-sensor Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). ABS-equipped Altimas feature two advanced braking systems - Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD), which optimizes brake force depending on load condition (passengers and cargo) and Brake Assist, which senses hard or panic pedal application and helps provide maximum braking capacity.

Braking for the SE-R is provided by large ( x t front, x t rear) 4-wheel disc brakes with standard 4-wheel, 4-channel, 4-sensor Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA).

Models and Options
The Nissan Altima is available in six well-equipped models – the base , mid-grade S, luxurious S with SL Package, and the V6-powered SE, the SL and the SE-R. The Altima comes with several new available packages for the S.

The Comfort Package adds 8-way power driver’s seat, Vehicle Security System (VSS) and cargo net; Trip Package adds trip computer with outside temperature display, leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering wheel mounted audio controls, auto on/off headlights, dual illuminated vanity mirrors, sunvisor extensions, speed sensitive volume control and auto up/down front passenger window; S Special Edition Package adds both the Comfort and Trip Packages and new metallic film on the center console and special edition badge; Special Edition Premium Package includes the Special Edition Package contents and power glass sunroof with sunshade and alloy wheels.

The Altima S with SL Package features an available power glass sunroof and DVD-Based Navigation Package.

Nissan Altima

Motor vehicle

The Nissan Altima is a mid-size car that has been manufactured by Nissan since It is a continuation of the Nissan Bluebird line, which began in

The Altima has historically been larger, more powerful, and more luxurious than the Nissan Sentra but less so than the Nissan Maxima. The first through fourth generation cars were manufactured exclusively in the United States and officially sold in North and South America, along with the Middle East and Australia. For other markets, Nissan sold a related mid-size sedan called the Nissan Teana which was between the Altima and Maxima in terms of size. In , the Teana became a rebadged version of the fifth generation Altima.

The name "Altima" was originally applied to a top trim line of the Nissan Leopard for the Japanese market in ,[1] and then to the Nissan Laurel mid-size car sold in Central America and the Caribbean before In , Nissan discontinued the Stanza which was a Nissan Bluebird clone, replacing it with the US-built Altima, while remaining a compact car. The first Altima was produced in June , as a model. All Altima models were built in Smyrna, Tennessee, until June , when Nissan's Canton, Mississippi plant also began producing the model to meet high demand.

First generation (U13; )[edit]

Motor vehicle

– Altima XE

Rear view

Like the Stanza before it, the original Altima was the export version of the Nissan Bluebird SSS (chassis model U13), though its original styling hailed from Nissan's California design group (Blue Studio under Allan Flowers) in Initially, the car's official name was "Stanza Altima," which appears on the early owners manuals. models can be seen with a sticker reading "Stanza" in small lettering to the right of the ALTIMA emblem on the trunk lid.[3]

All Altima models used Nissan's &#;hp (&#;kW) KA24DEstraight-4DOHC engine mated to a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic (acceleration performance: seconds 0–60&#;mph (0–&#;km/h) with automatic and with manual). (By contrast, the Japanese top trim package Bluebird SSS could be had with Nissan's SR20DET engine and all-wheel-drive.) Suspension was composed of struts with stabilizer bars at both ends and was noted for providing sporty, satisfying handling (plus a firm ride and moderate road noise); all wheels were inches. Being one of the bigger compact cars, the Altima could seat four adults fairly comfortably, though its body was too narrow for five. Trim lines consisted of the stripped XE, mid-line GXE, sporty SE, and luxury GLE. Some options included a gold emblem package, molded mud guards, and a pin stripe. All models had small cup holders under the radio and a small glovebox which were improved in the redesign.

The base XE (rare) had manual windows. The mid-line GXE had power windows, a power retracting antenna, pass thru rear armrest, a digital clock in dash (became optional on models), and color matched plastic speaker grilles for the rear 6-inch speakers. The XE and GXE models only had the fixed intermittent wiper switch.

In addition to the GXE features, the SE had a stiffer suspension, fog lights, 3 leg mount rear spoiler ( models with a clear LED brake light), side skirts (no upper side moldings), and sport seats (plus a standard sunroof in –). It also had 4-wheel disc brakes, which came on the other trim lines when antilock brakes were ordered.

The GLE's enhancements included a digital automotive head-up display ( and only), which displayed speed in MPH or KM/H, turn signals, and various warning lights on a unique mirrored patch made into the windshield. The to Maxima and SX had similar technology but only showed speed. Other features included a coin holder built into the fuse panel cover ( and only), adjustable lumbar support on the front seats, automatic digital climate control, keyless entry with alarm (optional), floor mats, color matched side mirrors, cornering lights, sunroof, and a higher-powered six-speaker cassette/CD stereo which included 6X9 rear speakers with black metal "active speaker" grilles, metal color matched "active speaker" grilles for the front door speakers ( and only), and a pair of A pillar tweeters all powered by two factory amps mounted underneath the rear deck. For it gave up all of the above in exchange for standard leather (previously optional). All SE and GLE models had alloy wheels and variable intermittent wipers.

Altimas came with a rosewood colored dash trim and only had a driver's side airbag coupled with automatic shoulder belts (the center console was slimmer to accommodate the lap belts). The Altima gained a darker burl wood dash trim, a flush mount passenger airbag and regular seat belts. and models came with chrome inner door handles standard with an auto door lock/unlock feature on the passenger side. For , the inner door handles were changed to color matched plastic, and a plug replaced where the passenger auto door lock/unlock feature was. and models also had a slim 1+1&#;2 armrest lid, however, if an optional leather armrest was selected, it brought the height up to about inches (&#;mm). For , all the armrest lids were thicker and about inches (&#;mm) tall. The model year (introduced ) also brought a new venetian blind-like grille, new taillights (red and clear), and a new 2 leg mount spoiler with a red LED brake light for the SE. Some other changes included the removal of the rear speaker grilles for a flat rear deck, a cheaper cloth interior, a plastic cover replacing the rear ashtray, and the digital in dash clock was now optional. For the model year in March , a raised mount passenger airbag with a new inflator was introduced in post-March 3, production. brought new wheel covers for base models. During the model year the GXE gained a new "Limited Edition" package including alloy wheels, keyless entry, alarm, floor mats, and a Limited Edition sticker on each side near the front wheels. The majority of final-year Altima models were dubbed "" models, signifying the added crash protection necessary to meet side-impact standards.[4]

Second generation (L30; )[edit]

Motor vehicle

The second generation (chassis model L30) was an American market-only version, again styled by Nissan's California design center under Doug Wilson through (design freeze in ). A new interior (by Diane Allen) brought a revised glove box and cup holders, a folding back seat (except on XE), and depowered airbags. The Japanese domestic market Bluebird U14 has different front and rear ends, and slightly narrower width dimensions to comply with Japanese government dimension regulations.

While total volume remained identical at cubic feet (&#;m3), most felt it was distributed better and resulted in a slightly roomier-feeling cabin. On the downside, many were let down by the new model's plainer styling and cheapened interior; some also felt the gas pedal was now too lightly sprung.

Trim lines were the stripped XE, volume-selling GXE, sporty SE, and luxury-trimmed GLE. The SE can be distinguished by its body-color grille, fog lights, rear spoiler, alloy wheels, and white-faced gauges. In this generation of Altima, all GLEs had leather seats standard.

MY– Nissan Altima SE

For , the uplevel cassette/CD stereo got a new faceplate, GXE and SE models gained variable intermittent wipers, and GLEs gained standard alloy wheels. The majority of changes came for the model year. The engine increased in power from to horsepower with 4-way sparks, while it also improved the 0–60&#;mph time from to seconds. Gearing and final drive ratios were shortened on both transmissions, stabilizer bars were thickened, and the steering was firmed up. SE and GLE models also upgraded to inch wheels with lower-profile tires, new Monroe struts with "acceleration-sensitive strut valving", and a front strut tower brace for sportier handling (all optional on GXE). The Altima grew slightly longer and got a deeper front grille, one-piece headlamps with integrated turn signals and standard low-speed cornering lamps, all-red taillights, and plastic trim on the deck lid. Inside were new front seats with a driver's height adjuster, cup holders for the rear seat (automatic transmission models only), revised seat cloth, a new instrument panel with digital odometer, a new rear window antenna, and the keyless entry fob now included a trunk release. Side airbags were newly standard on GLE and available on GXE and SE. For , the Altima GXE again gained a Limited Edition package: power driver's seat, keyless entry with alarm and floor mats.

The third-generation Altima (chassis model L31) debuted for the model year.[7] It was the first mass-market product built on Nissan's new FF-L platform, which was unique to North America and had no equivalent model in Japan. The Asian Nissan Teana is similar but not quite identical, designed for Southeast Asian market requirements; all three model lines shared the same platform. The Altima grew significantly for this generation, as interior volume expanded to cubic feet (&#;m3). The Altima's interior dimensions even surpassed that of the higher-end Maxima, so the Maxima was moved more upscale into the full-size bracket. Also biggest in class was the Altima's 20&#;US&#;gal (76&#;L; 17&#;imp&#;gal) fuel tank. Additionally, the Altima upgraded its rear suspension to a multi-link type and its brakes to 4-wheel discs. This was the first generation to offer a V6 engine.

– models received two tone dash color, and the SE received an upgrade in horsepower, from &#;hp (&#;kW) to &#;hp (&#;kW), though torque stayed the same at &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m).[8][9] – models with manual gearbox were the lightest of the V6 (4DR) cars.[10] The liter 4-cylinder engine accelerated the sedan from 0–60&#;mph (97&#;km/h) in seconds.

MY– Altima S

Nissan Altima S Special Edition

MY– Altima SE-R

The Nissan Altima received a facelift, including a new front grille, all-red taillights, redesigned interior, and an optional DVD-based navigation system. The V6 was now rated at &#;hp (&#;kW) with torque rated at &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m), and a 0–60&#;mph (97&#;km/h) time of seconds[11] utilizing the 5-speed automatic transmission. Also new was the SE-R model with a &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque version of the V6, a 6-speed manual transmission (automatic still optional), upgraded brakes, inch wheels, a suspension even stiffer than that of the SE's, and a high-flow exhaust.[12]Car and Driver tested the SE-R resulting in 0–60&#;mph (97&#;km/h) in seconds.[13]MotorWeek episode # tested an SE-R equipped with an automatic transmission that produced a 0–60&#;mph time of seconds.[14]


The third-generation Altima was well received by the press, with many critics praising the new style and extra space, being one of the most powerful and best-handling family sedans available. As the Altima offered the performance and space of the upper-market Maxima in a less expensive car,[15] this significantly reduced Maxima sales but made Nissan competitive in the mid-size segment for the first time.[16] While previous iterations received decent reviews, the third-generation Altima was the first to enjoy considerable success, and it was credited with a turnaround of Nissan's operations from debt-ridden to among the industry's most profitable.[17][18][19]

Most of the criticism centered on the interior found in the – models, which was cited for using hard and brittle plastics. Some also found the steering too light and or abrupt, and the turning circle too wide due to its elongated wheelbase.

Mechanical issues[edit]

The L Altimas had major excessive oil consumption issues causing potential catastrophic engine failures. Some cases were because of owner neglect and other cases involved the catalytic converter failing, forcing foreign objects back into the exhaust manifold. Most reports were received after the vehicle is beyond , miles and more than eight years old (beyond any warranties) and most of the reports had only to do with the – model ranges.

In April a class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on behalf of all Nissan Altima owners of through model years. The lawsuit originally alleged that Nissan manufactured those model years with defective floorboards on both the driver and passenger side of the vehicle but was dismissed by a judge in January The resulting premature rust was extensive and generally happened out of warranty. The real cause was that the front mudguards were not high enough and there was no stoneguard applied to the metal plates underneath the vehicle. Other car makes from other car manufacturers have also experienced the same problem to a lesser extent. Nissan changed the design of the floorboards for the 4th generation and thus the problem did not reoccur again from MY onwards.[20]

Pre-facelift Nissan Altima S sedan

The fourth generation Nissan Altima (chassis model L32A) was announced at the New York International Auto Show on April 12, It was the first vehicle to use the smaller Nissan D platform, with a new front and upgraded rear suspension. The wheelbase is 1-inch (25&#;mm) shorter than the third generation Altima, but interior space was mostly unchanged. The Maxima and Murano also used this new platform starting with the models. As with the previous generation, it shares much of its mechanicals and platform with the Nissan Teana which is built for different market conditions in Asia.

The fourth generation Altima used revised versions of the engines from the third generation model. The VQ35DE L V6 engine produces &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque, and the QR25DE Lstraight-4 produces &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque.[23] A 6-speed manual is standard, and a continuously variable transmission replaced the traditional automatic as the optional transmission.

This generation Altima came packaged with, for its time, new technology such as a standard Smart Key (referred to as the "Nissan Intelligent Key"), along with available Bluetooth capability for cell phones, and a parking camera. The dashboard was designed with larger buttons for easy readability and a total of eight cup holders, two in front of the center console, two in the rear armrest, and one ounce cup holder in each door. Several hidden compartments were added as well as doubling the glove compartment space to cubic feet (13&#;L). For , all Altima models received ABS with electronic brake-force distribution.[24]

For , a new base model, named the , became available as a more affordable version of the Altima. To save costs, the did not include a factory radio, however prewiring for an aftermarket head unit, four front door and dashboard-mounted factory speakers, and a factory A/M-F/M radio antenna all came preinstalled. Other cost-saving measures on the included the deletion of features such as the door handle-mounted touch sensors for the Nissan Intelligent Key system (keyless entry and push-button ignition were still included), the ability to lower or raise the power windows from the keyless entry remote, some of the standard cup holders, the overhead sunglass storage compartment, and the carpeted trim on the inside of rear trunk lid. The models also did not include lettering on the rear trunk lid of the vehicle. Features such as air conditioning with a single-zone manual climate control, a split-folding rear bench seat, Velour cloth seat trim, keyless entry, and a push-button ignition were still included as standard equipment on the base model.


Facelift Nissan Altima SR sedan

In for the model year, the Nissan Altima was facelifted with a new front fascia, hood, and headlights, as well as new wheels and interior materials.[25] Electronic stability control, previously only offered as part of an option package on V6 models and unavailable with 4-cylinder engines, is now standard on all Altima trims including 4 cylinder models.[26] The CVT had been made standard by this point for all trims; the manual was dropped for the model year. However, the SR (formerly the SE) could still be had with a 6-speed manual (though this was for customer order only).

Coupe (D32, )[edit]

The coupe version of the Nissan Altima (codename D32) was officially revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Nissan's first-ever two-door Altima. It had a shorter wheelbase, shorter overall length and lower height than the Altima Sedan.[27] It was released on May 25, as a model.

The Altima Coupe was available with two engines: the same updated VQ35DE in the sedan, a &#;hp (&#;kW) liter valve DOHC V6 or the QR25DE, a &#;hp (&#;kW) liter DOHC valve inline 4-cylinder.

Nissan Altima SL coupe

Like the sedan, the Altima Coupe received a facelift for which included a redesigned front end, hood and grille, new projector beam headlights, and the Altima Coupe S model came standard with 17" × " 5-split spoke aluminum alloy wheels, along with P/55TR17 all-season tires instead of the 16" steel wheels provided in the former. The SE model was renamed SR and came standard with 18" × " 5-split-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels, and there was a revision to the fabric and trim pieces in the interior. The models came with Nissan's Vehicle Dynamic Control as standard equipment, which was previously a $ stand-alone option. A new premium Bose audio system with a inch color display and Nissan's next generation navigation system with a inch color display with an internal hard drive providing &#;GB of music storage and USB connectivity was also included with the refresh.[28] Azure Blue was replaced by Navy Blue and there were two additional colors: Crimson Black and Ocean Gray.

For the model year (Generation 5), the SR trim level was dropped completely for the coupe, meaning that for this particular model year, only the sedan was available with a L V6, and is the last model year for the Altima Coupe, while the sedan gets redesigned for the model year and continues production for future model years. This model year also included the first, standard equipped, NASA inspired "zero gravity" front row seating. These seats use research from the U.S. space and aeronautics agency to reduce muscle fatigue in drivers.[29] Zero Gravity seating is now available in the and Rogue, Altima, Murano, Maxima, and Titan.[30]


The Altima Hybrid was Nissan's first hybrid car, first introduced in February and discontinued in the model year. In the U.S. it was only available in 10 states that followed California's strict energy laws (California, Oregon, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont), and was also available in Canada. Its hybrid-drive system was licensed from Toyota's hybrid technology; the company asserted that subsequent hybrid models would be based on hybrid technology developed in-house.[31] Up to 40, per year were to be built at Nissan's Smyrna plant.[32] The Nissan Altima Hybrid was also used as a regular taxi vehicle and as a police cruiser with the New York City Police Department until it was discontinued.[33]

The Hybrid featured a L QR25DE engine producing &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque, and CVT. The electric motor/generator put out an additional 40 horsepower putting out max power of &#;hp (&#;kW), and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m).[34] Its fuel efficiency was &#;L/&#;km (42&#;mpg&#;imp; 35&#;mpg&#;US) city and &#;L/&#;km (40&#;mpg&#;imp; 33&#;mpg&#;US) highway, based on revised EPA measures for fuel economy ratings.[34] After the model year Nissan discontinued the Altima Hybrid due to poor sales.[35]

Features on the Hybrid were identical to that of the gasoline-only S trim, and additional packages were also available, including a package that added leather-trimmed seating surfaces. The Hybrid also included the aluminum-alloy wheels that were otherwise optional on the S.


The fourth generation Altima was sold in several versions:

Base (Sedan only): Includes L, &#;hp (&#;kW) I4 engine, 6-speed manual transmission, Audio System Pre-Wiring w/ four speakers, Intelligent Key System w/ Push-Button Start, 16 Inch Steel Wheels w/ Full Wheel Covers

A redesigned Altima debuted at the New York International Auto Show for the model year, and went on sale in the summer of The exterior design took cues from the Ellure Concept previewed in Like the Camry and Accord, it continued to offer a base 4-cylinder engine with a L V6 as the range topper. Specifications for the QR25DE liter valve DOHC inline-four engine are &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m), while the VQ35DE liter valve DOHC V6 remains &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m). Nissan estimates the liter fuel economy to be 27 city/38 hwy and the liter V6 at 22 city/30 hwy thanks to its refined CVT that has been lightened by 8&#;lbs. Most of the major mechanical components of this generation Altima are carried over.[39] Much of the exterior styling seems to draw familiar traits from the Nissan Maxima.[39] The Special Edition and the facelift both have an interior that is similar to the Murano, the Maxima, and the Rogue. For the first time, a manual transmission is not available.

Despite the larger size of the Altima compared to the previous model, the new Altima weighs about pounds less. The Altima continues to be the lightest midsize sedan in its class; this is mostly due to its efficient use of high strength steel and aluminum in areas such as the trunk, hood, and roof. The front end shares the same new corporate grille as the Versa with more angular headlights than the Versa's rounded ones. It draws many styling influences from "coke bottle styling", an appearance that was popular during the s and s, a return to an appearance Nissan used during that time.

Nissan offers the Altima in five different trims; , S, SV, SL, and SL. S and SV were discontinued for the model year. Alongside the L33 Altima sedan, the previous-generation L32 Altima coupe will continue on sale.[19] The coupe will only be offered with the QR25DE Liter four-cylinder rated at &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque mated with a CVT. The 6-speed manual transmission is no longer available in the Altima Sedan due to slow sales. The SL model, which was once an equipment package for the Altima S, is now a separate model. In addition, the base model, which previously featured prewiring for an aftermarket head unit to be installed, an A/M-F/M radio antenna, and front door and dashboard-mounted speakers, received an A/M-F/M radio with a single-disc CD/MP3 player, auxiliary audio input, and Bluetooth hands-free phone system as standard equipment (as before, no rear speakers were included in the package).

Production started in late May and the car went on sale in June in the United States, and August of the same year in Canada. The Altima will also be on sale in various other markets (existing or new), particularly the Middle East where it replaces the fourth generation L32A models, and the Australian market for the first time sometime next year, replacing the Nissan Maxima J32 (Teana). In China and other Asian markets, the L33 Nissan Altima will be the third generation of Nissan Teana. The L33 Altima was discontinued in Australia and New Zealand on 5 April , alongside the B17 Sylphy-based Pulsar sedan, to focus on the sports cars, SUVs and pickup trucks in those markets.

The Nissan Altima Coupe was discontinued due to slow sales after the model year, which means Nissan will only focus on the sedan model for the Altima while the hybrid and coupe are discontinued.[40]

The Advanced Drive-Assist Display was added in

Model year saw the return of the SR performance model. Available with either 4 or 6 cylinder engines it comes equipped with 18 inch alloy wheels, sport decklid spoiler, unique sport interior with blue piping on the seats, SR logo floormats, and leather wrapped steering wheel and gearshift lever.


In a comparison test by Motor Trend, the Nissan Altima SV came in fourth place out of six cars behind the first place Volkswagen Passat, second place Honda Accord, and third place Ford Fusion.[41]

This was followed by a third place showing in a comparison done by the Car and Driver team. This was a series of three comparison tests involving mid-size sedans. In this particular test, four cars were tested. It consisted of the all new Ford Fusion and Honda Accord as well as the Nissan Altima. The Volkswagen Passat is included in the test as it won the first round of mid-sized sedan comparison. In that round, it won decisively against the Chevrolet Malibu, Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima.[42] However, the Passat only managed last in the 2nd round being led by the Altima (3rd), Fusion (2nd) and the Accord (1st).[43] This is followed by the final round where the Mazda 6 won against the Honda Accord.[44]

More recently, in a comparison test conducted by Edmunds.com, the Nissan Altima beat out the Honda Accord and the Mazda6 to win 1st place. It is stated that the Altima is good in almost everything with only minor deficiencies. It drives well, entertaining on twisty roads, has comfortable seats and remains quiet on highways. It is the least expensive but doesn't feel like it. The mileage figures only adds to its high appeal.[45]

Since its launch, the Altima has accumulated several accolades including being named to Kelley Blue Book's Top 10 best new sedans under $25,,[46] Kiplinger's Personal Finance best new model in class[47] and Edmund's top recommended sedans.[48]


The third generation Nissan Teana was introduced to Japan, essentially being a rebadged version of the North American Altima. In Japan, the Teana is offered in L engine with three different trims; XV, XL and XE.

It is available in most Asian countries since its introduction.

In Thailand, the L33 Teana was debuted in August where it was available with either a L engine with three variants, XE, XL and XL Navi or a L engine with two variants, XV and XV Navi.[49] Five years latter, the L33 Teana in Thailand received the front end of the facelift Altima. Variants was also streamlined down to just three: XL, XL Navi and XV Navi.[50]

In Malaysia, the L33 Teana was launched in June where it is available with either a L or a L engines. Three variants were available which was the XE, XL and XV.[51] In December , two optional accessories packages became available: Nismo Aero Package and Nismo Performance Package. The Nismo Aero Package added front bumper soilers, rear bumper spoilers, side skirts, trunk lid spoiler and exhaust finisher. The Nismo Performance Package added all that with the Nismo Aero Package in addition to Nismo sport springs and Nismo LMX6 inch alloy wheels.[52] The L33 Teana has since been discontinued in Malaysia.

In China, a longer wheelbase luxury Teana is sold as the "Teana VIP" and bears VIP logos stitched into the seats and a "VIP" badge on the trunk lid. The Teana VIP has an extended backseat door and wheelbase (+75/+mm), and is equipped with a 9-speaker Bose surround system, rear-passenger controls and rear-passenger video screens.[53][54]

Nissan India has discontinued its Teana D-segment sedan as the Teana failed to generate volumes for the carmaker in India in The company has also removed the saloon from its official website.[55]


Altima S

The model year received a thorough facelift including new front and rear bumpers, headlamps and taillamps, reshaped Zero Gravity front seats, steering wheel and central console.[56] The car was built with new cabin silencing materials, and new sound-reducing windshield.

A new SR trim level added sporty seventeen-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, sport cloth seating surfaces, SiriusXMSatellite Radio, a front power driver's bucket seat, and a sports leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel to the S model. The SR was dropped for the model year, leaving the SR as the only available SR trim level, and the only trim level once again was the SL.

For , the SR trim level gets two new "Special Edition" packages, one being the SR Special Edition, which adds special gray-finished eighteen-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, leather-like upholstery, and a seven-inch display infotainment system with GPS navigation to the base SR trim.[57] The other "Special Edition" package available for the SR is the SR Midnight Edition, which adds special black-finished eighteen-inch aluminum alloy wheels, a black rear spoiler, black exterior side mirrors, black exterior accents, and black exterior emblems to the base SR trim.[58]

Also for , the previously-base trim was discontinued, which now meant that the S became the new "base" trim of the Altima. This also meant that all Altima models now came standard with a five-inch color display audio system, rear-mounted speakers, and Intelligent Key Access for all four doors, all of which were not available on the trim level. The S trim also gains an optional Convenience Package, which adds a power-adjustable front driver's bucket seat and a remote start system for an additional $ over the base car. The S also loses standard SiriusXMSatellite Radio for , and it is not available as an option for this trim level.[59]

Finally for , the NissanConnect Infotainment System is revised, adding in standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Connectivity and a redesigned User Interface (UI).[60]

is the final model year for the L33 Nissan Altima. A new model, which is expected to debut during the New York Auto Show as an early model, has been seen testing. It appears larger than the current model, and also adapts styling cues from the Nissan Maxima, which include LED front head lamps and Nissan's new "V-Motion" front grille.[61] Inside, a large touch screen infotainment system dominates the instrument panel, and a "D-Ringed" sport steering wheel from the Nissan Maxima replaces the current steering wheel design. The push-button ignition appears to have also been relocated to the center console, now located next to the transmission shift lever.[62] The new vehicle should be similar in appearance to the Nissan V-Motion concept car.[63]

For , the previous base and slow-selling model was deleted from the Nissan Altima lineup. The new "base" model of the Altima became the S, which includes a higher level of standard equipment than the model it replaces, such as a NissanConnect five-inch (") color LCD radio (A/M-F/M radio, single-disc CD/MP3 player, BluetoothA2DP Streaming Audio, USB port, millimeter (mm) auxiliary audio input jack, Nissan Rear-View Monitor System (rear-view backup camera system), and limited mobile app compatibility), a six-speaker audio system (now including rear speakers), and touch sensors for the Intelligent Key system on all door handles. The SR model was also deleted for , leaving the SL as the only Nissan Altima model equipped with a V6 engine. The SL model also gains a standard NissanConnect seven-inch (") touch-screen infotainment system featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This was previously optional equipment on the Nissan Altima SL model. Even with the model now discontinued, pricing for the Nissan Altima has increased only by $, up to $23, from $22, in

The facelifted Teana was launched in China in July and in Thailand in November


In , Kelly Racing announced that it would enter four custom Nissan Altima race cars into the International V8 Supercars Championship. The car was revealed in October and was the first car to be homologated for the New Generation V8 Supercar regulations, which were to be used in the V8 Supercars Championship from onwards. It was the first time Nissan had raced in the series since , when Nissan's Skyline GT-R was forced out of racing due to regulation changes.[64] The team has scored three race wins since moving to Nissan, with James Moffat in , Michael Caruso in and Rick Kelly in Moffat and co-driver Taz Douglas finished on the podium at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst , and the team has taken numerous other podium finishes.

The sixth-generation Altima debuted at the New York International Auto Show. The design was previewed by the Nissan Vmotion Concept.

The car can be either be powered by a &#;hp (&#;kW) liter naturally aspirated direct injected four-cylinder engine;&#;hp (&#;kW) with available AWD, or a &#;hp (&#;kW) liter variable compression turbocharged four-cylinder engine that replaces the V6 powertrain in the previous generation. It is the world's first production ready variable compression turbo engine.[68] All engines are mated to a continuous variable transmission. All Wheel Drive is only available on the liter engine models.

The sixth generation Altima has Nissan Intelligent Mobility, which includes Pro-Pilot Assist, Nissan Intelligent Around View Monitor, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection System and Intelligent Lane Intervention. The car arrived at dealerships in the USA[69] in October [70] and in Mexican Nissan dealerships in May [71]

It began production in Nissan's Smyrna plant on August 24, and in Canton, Mississippi on September 27, [72][73]

Trim levels[edit]

The Altima is offered in five trim levels: S, SR, SV, SL, and Platinum.[70]

Nissan began accepting preorders for the all-new Altima starting June 15, An Edition One Special Edition model was offered exclusively to buyers who choose to preorder their all-new Altima. The Edition One trim, based on the all-new Nissan Altima Platinum Turbo, was produced in limited numbers, and offered features that was not offered on any other all-new Nissan Altima models, such as nineteen-inch (19") dark gray-finished aluminum-alloy wheels, 'Edition One' exterior badging, illuminated interior door sill kick plates, a rear spoiler, external ground lighting, and unique 'Edition One'-embroidered premium carpeted floor mats. The Edition One was only available in three exterior colors: Scarlet Ember Tintcoat, Super Black, or Pearl White Tricoat. Nissan also provided a complimentary gift to buyers who preordered the all-new Nissan Altima Edition One: either an Amazon Echo Dot with a Bose SoundLink Revolve Bluetooth Wireless Speaker and a 1-Year Amazon Prime Subscription, an Apple Watch Series 3, or an Amazon Echo Show and a 1-Year Amazon Prime Subscription. Finally, special complimentary concierge services will be provided to those who preorder the vehicle. Nissan's sister luxury vehicle brand, Infiniti, offered a similar incentive for those who preordered the all-new second-generation Infiniti QX50 compact crossover SUV, though no special edition model was offered to those buyers.[74]

In addition to the special edition Edition One, Nissan Altima buyers could also preorder any other trim level.

All Altima trim levels come equipped with standard features such as the Nissan Safety Shield suite of driver assistance technologies, a "D"-ring sport steering wheel, the Adaptive Driver Assist Display, the NissanConnect touchscreen infotainment system with SiriusXMSatellite Radio, USB and auxiliary audio inputs, and AroundViewMonitor multi-angle camera system, Nissan Intelligent Key system with push-button ignition, split-folding rear bench seats, and a remote vehicle starter system. All models include a naturally-aspirated, liter inline four-cylinder (I4) gasoline engine that has been carried over from the previous-generation Altima, but has been improved for increased performance and fuel efficiency. SR and Platinum models also offer the optional turbocharged L VC Turbo (Variable Compression Turbocharged) inline four-cylinder gasoline engine (the Platinum-based Edition One features the VC Turbo engine as standard equipment), although only the base engine is available with All Wheel Drive (AWD), which is also available on the Altima for the first time (the AWD Altima competes directly with the Ford Fusion and Subaru Legacy midsize sedans, which both also offer AWD). Front Wheel Drive (FWD) is standard on all models. As with its predecessors, The Nissan "X-Tronic" Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is the only available transmission option available on the new Altima.

Upper trim levels of the Altima offer GPS navigation with traffic and weather information, HD Radio, a Bose premium amplified audio system, NissanConnect Services, Nissan ProPilot Assist, additional driver assistance features, a leather-wrapped, heated steering wheel, power-adjustable front bucket seats with memory for the front driver's seat, heated and ventilated front seats and heated outboard rear seats, perforated luxury leather-trimmed or "PrimaTex" seating surfaces, a power moonroof, woodgrain interior trim, and upgraded aluminum-alloy wheels.

Semi-autonomous driving[edit]

The sixth generation Altima was one of the first Nissans to offer the semi-autonomous driving option "Nissan ProPilot Assist" along with the Nissan Rogue and Nissan Leaf.[75][76][77][78][79]

The Nissan Vmotion Concept previewed the sixth generation Altima.

Reviews and reception[edit]

NY Daily News gave a / points score and an overall rating of points to the vehicle; saying that "The new Altima is better looking, better equipped, more technologically advanced, and more enjoyable to drive".[80]


Nissan USA partnered with Ben Fearnley on making the "Impossibly Smart" mural which took place on Hollywood, Los Angeles. It used SprayPainterspray painting robots to paint the mural twice and change the background to 4 different designs endlessly from November 14–19, [81]


The Altima received a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS and not a "Plus" award. It has a Good rating for all tests except for an Acceptable rating for headlights.[82]

Other important safety features include:[83]

  • Around-View Monitor: Overcomes blind spots with a bird's-eye view of the car and its surroundings.
  • Forward Emergency Braking: Helps to ensure that a momentary lapse of driver attention won't result in a collision.
  • ProPilot Assist: This combination of driver aids works together to offer semi-automated, nearly self-driving operation.

Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima is a roomy, comfortable, practical mid-size sedan. But while the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry aim squarely at the mainstream buyer, the Altima boasts lots of power, sporty handling and expressive styling. It's designed to please fewer people, but to please those few more intensely.

In this respect the Altima reminds us more of Mazda's mid-size sedan, the Mazda6. Both offer stand-out styling; both surrender some refinement for gains in handling response. In other ways, however, they are diametric opposites: The lean and wiry Mazda is the smallest car in this class, powered by a choice of high-winding engines; while the muscular Nissan tops the class in both horsepower and wheelbase and is one of the roomiest cars in the class.

The Altima delivers stunning acceleration when ordered with its horsepower V6, essentially the same engine used in the Nissan Z and Maxima. Punch it in any gear and it takes off, with nimble handling and brakes to match its thrust. The high-performance Altima SE-R adds 10 more horsepower and even more sports appeal. And for its part, the Altima's standard four-cylinder engine is more powerful than comparable engines in the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Mazda6 or Mitsubishi Galant. So no matter which model you buy, you get a more powerful car with the Altima.

Altima also boasts a bigger interior than Camry and Accord. Altima's interior was redesigned for , which resulted in an improved cabin. Altima also received some mild styling enhancements and a slight boost to its V6 for For , Nissan has added four new option packages, and the optional satellite radio receiver is now factory-installed.

Model Lineup

The Nissan Altima comes in five trim levels: The , S and SL are equipped with a liter four-cylinder engine, while the SE and SL feature the powerful liter V6.

The Altima ($17,) comes standard with power windows, tinted windshield, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, power steering, fold down center armrests front and rear, a 60/40 split folding rear seat and an in-glass antenna. Air conditioning and a stereo are not included, however. The base model is only available with a five-speed manual transmission.

The S ($19,) adds air conditioning, power mirrors, remote keyless entry with remote trunk lock, an eight-way adjustable driver's seat, cruise control, a six-speaker audio system, seatback pockets and a lock for the split rear seat. It comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic ($20,). This is the most popular Altima, and Nissan offers several option packages to further its appeal. The Convenience Package ($1,) features alloy wheels, eight-way power driver's seat with lumbar support, leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, trip computer, dual illuminated vanity mirrors, speed-sensitive volume control, automatic headlights and a vehicle security system. The Convenience Plus Package ($2,) adds a power glass sunroof with sunshade to the other goodies, while the Premium Convenience Package ($3,) adds to the above a Bose audio system that includes a six-disc in-dash CD changer. Special Edition, Premium, Comfort, and Trip packages will also be available.

The SL ($23,) is the luxury Altima. It comes standard with the four-speed automatic transmission, heated leather seats, a power driver's seat, simulated wood trim, and most of the features offered in the convenience packages above. The only convenience option is the sunroof ($). For those who want all the goodies without the big engine, this is the car.

The SL ($27,) adds the horsepower V6 and five-speed automatic and comes standard with the four-speed automatic transmission, heated leather seats, a power driver's seat, simulated wood trim, and most of the features from the convenience packages. This is a very nice car, the top-of-the-line Altima.

The SE ($23,), on the other hand, is a performance model, equipped with the V6; five-speed manual transmission; inch alloy wheels; wider, speed-rated tires; a performance-tuned suspension; fog lights; and dual chrome exhaust tips. The SE is also available with the five-speed automatic ($23,). Cloth upholstery is standard. A Leather Package ($3,) includes leather upholstery, Bose audio, sunroof, and heated front seats and mirrors. The Sport Package Plus ($2,) includes the sunroof, spoiler, Bose premium audio, and xenon headlights. The Leather Sport Package ($3,) combines the Leather Package with the spoiler and xenon headlights.

The SE-R ($29,) features a horsepower version of the liter V6, performance-tuned front struts and rear shocks, stiffer front and rear springs, thicker front and rear stabilizer bars, speed-rated /45WR18 tires and inch forged aluminum-alloy wheels. Anti-lock brakes (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist are standard. Unique front and rear fascias and its own rear spoiler, compact fog lights, side-sill spoilers, and large dual exhaust finishers highlight the exterior. Inside, the SE-R gets sport leather seats, dark chrome trim, and a three-pod center-mounted gauge package. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, but the five-speed automatic is available as a no-cost option.

Safety features include dual-stage frontal airbags. Optional: side-impact airbags designed to provide torso protection for driver and front passenger and roof-mounted curtain airbags designed to provide head protection for front and rear passengers in a side impact or rollover. We strongly rec


The Nissan Altima is a big car by mid-size standards, bigger than the current Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. Its wheels are pushed to the far corners, giving it a long wheelbase and wide track for stability at high speeds. The long wheelbase leaves plenty of room for passengers, and for large doors to let them in and out.

Cast in the style of a European sedan, the Altima looks more like something from Volkswagen or Audi than Honda or Toyota. Yet the Altima also has more exterior design detail than the Camry or Accord, with creased mirrors, integrated foglamps and other subtle cues. Altima's sloping roofline is reminiscent of a coupe. Its high trunk lid is set off by bold round taillights, turn signals and backup lights set in a triangular-shaped cover.

Nissan subtly restyled the Altima for for a more aggressive look. The new hood looks more athletic, with a muscular bulge suggesting a powerful engine. A smoother front fascia and smoked headlamps add to the bold impression, and tooth-like ridges molded into the horizontal grille bars tighten Altima's kinship with the more exotic Maxima. The Altima's previously clear taillamp covers have been smoked slightly.

The grille and front bumper are set off nicely by aggressive-looking multi-parabola projector-type headlights with four bulbs set behind large covers. Altima's grille is large by contemporary standards, but not the least bit awkward.

Altima is assembled with a one-piece bodyside structure for more consistent build quality. Altima has gained on Camry and Accord in exterior build quality and Nissan claims panel-fit accuracy within mm.

Interior Features

The Nissan Altima feels spacious inside and that's no illusion. It ranks at or near the top of the class in interior roominess. There's more front legroom here than in all but the largest vehicles on the road. The front seats are quite comfortable and large enough for larger bodies. Getting in and out of the Altima is easy, thanks to wide doors and a slightly higher-than-average front seating position.

Nissan redesigned the interior for , addressing our biggest complaint with this car. Changes included a new instrument panel, a new center stack and a new center console. Seat materials, trim finishes and the headliner were upgraded and new chrome accents were added. Overall it's a vast improvement over earlier models and closer to Toyota and Honda levels, but still not quite there. The cloth upholstery is okay and the material used on the dash is nice, but the lids on the front of the center console are flimsy.

The Altima is a comfortable car, however, and driver visibility is excellent. The dashboard is set relatively low, with a binnacle directly in front of the driver containing speedometer, tachometer, and water temperature and fuel gauges. The instruments glow orange in the dark, offering less interference to night vision. The three-spoke steering wheel tilts and telescopes to help optimize driving position. The shifter on models with manual transmissions is somewhat long, with long throws.

The available navigation display is located at the top of the center stack and it works well. Audio controls are mounted high on the center stack for easy access. At the top are two rows of buttons, used to control audio, trip computer, and navigation functions, with a small joy stick in the center. Heating/air conditioning control knobs lie directly below and are easy to locate with minimal distraction.

Air conditioning vents are flush-mounted on the dash. Seams for the passenger-side airbag are invisible, cleverly hidden in a large expanse of unembellished dashboard surface. The center console has cupholders large enough for one-liter bottles. A power port inside the center console storage area is useful for cell phones. There's an adjustable elbow rest. The parking brake is a proper handbrake, located front and center. The windows can be opened with the remote key fob (by holding down the Unlock button), a nice feature on hot summer days.

The rear seats are supportive and comfortable, with good legroom and sufficient headroom. A 6-foot, 4-inch passenger can sit comfortably behind a 6-foot, 4-inch driver. Rear-center passengers get a three-point seat belt with shoulder harness; when the center spot is empty, an armrest drops and presents cupholders. Getting in and out of the rear seats is easier than it is in many mid-size sedans. The long wheelbase and large doors make it less likely that a rear passenger will get dirty by dragging their clothes across the fender well.

Trunk space ranks among the best in the mid-size class with cubic feet of cargo space. It's a convenient trunk, with a large opening and low lift-over height. The trunk lid pops up when the button on the remote key fob is used, a nice feature when you're running through the rain with an armload of groceries and a feature few cars seem to have lately. The gooseneck hinges intrude minimally into the usable trunk space. The rear seat of the Altima folds down for increased cargo space and the seat is split so you can carry a passenger and longer cargoes.

Driving Impressions

The Nissan Altima is one of the quickest, most powerful cars in its class. Both the four-cylinder engine and V6 deliver strong power, but it's the V6 that turns the Altima into a sports sedan, especially when paired with the five-speed manual transmission. Nissan's V6 is one of the best available. Slam the throttle down, either from a stop or at 40 mph, and the Altima will take off like a rocket. There's so much power that you'll notice some torque steer, even with the automatic, though it's not an issue. (Torque steer is a phenomenon common to powerful front-wheel-drive cars that causes a tug at the steering wheel under hard acceleration.)

When equipped with the V6, the Altima is arguably the best performer among mid-sized sedans, and among the most fun to drive. Nissan's liter V6 features the latest in high-output, variable-valve technology, producing horsepower at rpm and pound-feet of torque at rpm. Though certainly not raucous, Nissan's V6 isn't quite as smooth as those from Honda and Toyota, but you may have so much fun driving the Altima that you'll neither notice nor care.

The liter four-cylinder engine is strong, too. It's more powerful than the four-cylinder engines used in the Accord and Camry, and it works well with the four-speed automatic transmission. With the automatic, the four-cylinder Altima still pulls strongly from a standing start, and the transmission shifts promptly between 40 and 60 mph for quick passing maneuvers. Four-cylinder engines of this heft tend to run on the rough side, and Nissan has addressed this inherent vibration with a compact balance system and silent-chain cam drive that smoothes operation nicely. However, the big four-cylinder engine is still a bit louder, more raucous, than those from Honda and Toyota. Nissan's liter four-cylinder engine is sophisticated, with 16 valves, dual overhead camshafts and fully variable valve timing. It produces horsepower at rpm, and pound-feet of torque at rpm. The PZEV version of this engine used in California and several Northeast states is rated at horsepower and pound-feet of torque. The V6 is EPA-rated 21/27 with the five-speed manual, 20/30 mpg with the five-speed automatic.

The liter four-cylinder engine is more economical than the liter V6. The four-cylinder rates 24/31 mpg City/Highway with the manual transmission, 23/29 with the automatic. The gallon fuel tank, considerably larger than most in this class, means Altima can travel a long way between fill-ups.

This is a stable car at speed, and the suspension and brakes are tuned appropriately for the job. The Altima felt secure at 80 mph in a torrential rain storm. The Altima feels larger than the Honda Accord and other mid-size sedans. The four-wheel disc brakes are easy to modulate for smooth handling and deliver plenty of stopping power.

Overall handling is exemplary. The rack-and-pinion steering gives precise directional control, with good feedback. The multi-link rear suspension, a sophisticated design that uses aluminum components to reduce weight, enhances the stability of the rear end, even on bumpy roads. When it comes to chassis dynamics, the Altima is a class-leading performer. Enthusiasist drivers will love it, but it may not be for everyone.

While it rides well in most circumstances, the Altima feels stiffer than some of its competitors, particularly when it's crossing a rhythmic series of bumps or pavement joints. It's not as smooth as the Camry or Accord, especially the former, and the driver and passengers will feel a bit more vibration through the pedals, steering wheel or armrests. Overall NVH (noise, vibration and harshness control) isn't the best in the class, a trait at least partly to the Altima's emphasis on handling and performance. With every car, designers have to make choices. Nissan emphasized performance and handling over sm


The Nissan Altima boasts strong performance and responsive handling. Yet it's also practical, roomier than most mid-sized sedans, with comfortable accommodations front and rear, and a big trunk. The models will be the last of the current-generation Altima. An all-new model is on the horizon.

Wees slim, check van tevoren CARFAX. Jouw bron van voertuighistorie.


Schone schijn is er genoeg in de markt van tweedehands auto's. Maar wat zit er onder die glanzende motorkap? Als onafhankelijke aanbieder van kentekenchecks en voertuighistorie heeft CARFAX een missie: om je zo veel mogelijk informatieve mijlpalen (zogenaamde meldingen) uit het leven van een tweedehands auto te bieden. We willen namelijk dat jij je volgende tweedehands auto leert kennen. Van binnen en van buiten. En dat alles vóórdat je beslist, je leven met hem te delen.

We hebben daarvoor een unieke tool: een databank met meer dan 25 miljard historische meldingen uit het leven van gebruikte auto's. 3 miljard daarvan komen uit Europa. En deze databank groeit dagelijks. Zelfs als de gebruikte auto uit een land komt waarvan we geen informatie hebben, is een kentekencheck de moeite waard. Wie weet, misschien blijkt die kleine Italiaan wel grotendeels uit Oost-Europa te komen.

Maar begrijp ons niet verkeerd. We doen ons uiterste best om de complete achtergrond van een voertuig door te lichten, maar de achtergrond van de vorige eigenaren houden we er buiten. De meldingen in onze databank hebben op geen enkele wijze betrekking op personen. We richten ons uitsluitend op de gebruikte auto en zijn kilometerstand, mogelijke verdekte ongevallen, waar de auto vandaan komt en nog véél meer. Soms vinden we ook niks. En dat is alleen maar mooi, toch?

Waarom is uitgerekend vóór de aankoop de voertuighistorie zo belangrijk? Het is een feit dat er meer gebruikte auto's dan nieuwe auto's worden verkocht. Deze vorm van hergebruik kunnen we natuurlijk alleen maar anmoedigen. Maar daardoor ontstaan natuurlijk ook in de markt gangbare methoden en tactieken om schadewagens in goud om te toveren, de kilometerstand te manipuleren of andere dingen zoals de herkomst of zelfs diefstal te maskeren. Het zijn allemaal onvermijdelijke nadelen van een vrije markt in occasions. Wij vinden, dat je nieuwe tweedehands auto je juist een gevoel van zekerheid zou moeten geven. Daarom is ons doel, dat jij je bij het kopen van je auto goed voelt en dat je niet het gevoel krijgt, dat je teveel voor je nieuwe levensgezel hebt betaald.

Toch willen wij vooral dat je niet onbewust aan het stuur van een risicowagen komt te zitten. Wij helpen dagelijks om dit soort wagens letterlijk uit de roulatie te halen. Zo maken we niet alleen de markt van tweedehands auto's, maar uiteindelijk ook onze straten veiliger.


CARFAX is in in de Verenigde Staten opgericht en maakte in de stap naar Europa. Momenteel werken medewerkers bij zes Europese filialen om meldingen uit het leven van tweedehands auto's uit meer dan 20 landen te verwerken.

Door langdurige samenwerkingen met toezichthouders, handhaving, ministeries, verzekeringsmaatschappijen, taxateurs, automotive partijen en andere toonaangevende organisaties zijn wij in staat om een unieke internationale databank voor tweedehands auto's op te bouwen. Met meer dan 25 miljard meldingen is deze tot nu toe de grootste databank van voertuighistorie wereldwijd. En elke dag komen er meer meldingen bij. We gebruiken deze databank als basis voor een aantal slimme voertuighistorie-applicaties, zoals bijvoorbeeld ons uitgebreide voertuighistorierapport. Zo maken wij de occasion-markt transparanter.

Ondanks deze nauwe samenwerking met instanties en bedrijven zijn wij neutraal en onafhankelijk. Want uiteindelijk is ons doel, onze klanten zoveel mogelijk voorlichting en veiligheid te bieden. Daarbij gebruiken we overigens geen persoonsgerelateerde informatie en houden we altijd rekening met de wet op de gegevensbescherming. Verder gebruiken we de informatie altijd met het oog op juridische randvoorwaarden - en dat doen we in alle landen waar we actief zijn. Van illegale activiteiten als bijvoorbeeld datadiefstal, scraping of hacking distantiëren we ons nadrukkelijk.
