Powertrain and Efficiency
The 2016 Nissan Altima presents two engines for Regina and Swift Current drivers to choose from, with options including:
2.5L DOHC 16-Valve 4-Cylinder: An output equal to 182 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque makes this one of the most impressive standard engines in the segment. An Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) comes as standard to allow for up to 8.9 L/100 km in the city and 6.3 on the highway.
3.5L DOHC V6: This ferocious V6 is able to command a thrilling 270 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque. You’ll look like you’re driving a family car, but you’ll feel something very different when you hit the gas. An Xtronic CVT comes as standard to ensure up to a respectable 10.3 in the city and 7.4 on the highway.
Interior Space and Versatility
The Altima has always scored points for its spacious and indulgent cabin; the 2016 model has doubled down on those benefits with an extensive refit. Edges have been softened, lines have been smoothed and sculpted, and premium insulation materials have been used to almost completely separate your driving experience from the hustle and bustle of the outside world.
You’ll benefit from an intuitively laid out driver-centric cockpit, while large rear air vents will provide unsurpassed comfort to those in the back. Even better, there’s up to a generous 15.4 cubic feet of trunk space, with 60/40-split fold-down rear seatbacks as standard to let you accommodate larger, longer, and bulkier items.
Comfort and Convenience Features
The 2016 Nissan Altima’s cabin is one of the comfiest in its class, and it also puts a wide range of cutting-edge technologies at your fingertips in order to optimize comfort, convenience, connectivity, and entertainment as far as possible.
Bose Premium Audio System: Nine crystal-clear speakers are precisely tuned to the cabin’s acoustics, channeling sound evenly throughout the vehicle to create an immersive music experience.
NissanConnect: Drivers will be able to utilize either the 7-inch touchscreen monitor or sophisticated voice recognition system to use Google Search, then find anything from the cheapest gas station to the nearest cinema.
Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control (ATC): Both the driver and front-passenger receive their own individual climate controls, so they’ll each stay at their own perfect temperature.
As one of the NHTSA’s 2016 Top Safety Pick+ winners, the new Nissan Altima naturally sets a high standard when it comes to keeping you and your family from coming to harm, and even offers a competitive selection of thoroughly up-to-date driver assistance technologies, including:
Rear Cross Traffic Alert: Detects vehicle approaching from your sides as you’re backing out of a parking space, warning you if one is detected.
Predictive Forward Collision Warning: Scans the area ahead of your vehicle, then provides an alert if your proximity to obstructions ahead becomes dangerous. A Forward Emergency Braking system applies gentle braking pressure if you fail to react.
Blind Spot Warning: Should a vehicle be detected in the blind spot area, and indicator will appear in the driver’s or front passenger’s door, as well as on the Advanced Drive-Assist display. That indicator will flash and a chime will sound if you put on your turn signal.
You’ll even enjoy an extra sense of security with an available External Ground Lighting system. It uses 4 LED lights to brighten the area around your vehicle when you press the key fob, entry button, or open the doors.
