The 2016 Nissan Altima is the full-fledged upgrade that people have been looking forward to because of the tough competition the brand faces from Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.
Everything about the brand new Altima has been modified including its overall design, interiors, chassis, and most important fuel efficiency. According to the company, the new car has been designed based on their Energetic Flow design. In other words, it is about making the car’s design more fluid with every element syncing with one another without standing out like a sore thumb.
The A-Pillar is completely fresh which has been bundled with the V-Motion grille. The combination finally breaks the car from the monotonous design cycle and makes it look much sportier. People are obviously bored of a common commuter’s being made as dull and lifeless as possible. The 2016 Altima is Nissan’s answer to everyone who has been asking for a drastic change in their range of vehicles.
While it looks as if the exterior changes are focused on making buyers happy, in reality they are highly aerodynamic giving the car great grip at high speeds and are capable of ripping through air with relative ease. It leads to impressive top speed and fuel efficiency as the car doesn’t consume much because of the well-thought design.
On the inside, it is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The engine delivers a decent 182 horsepower and has 180 pound feet of torque. The car offers 38 to 39 miles per gallon which is much better than its predecessor. For drivers who want more oomph factor from their cars, there is another trim line in the Altima series which is equipped with a 3.5-liter six-cylinder engine. The powerful components deliver a much higher 270 horsepower with 251 pound feet of torque.
The designers of the 2016 Nissan Altima not only focused on making the engine better and creating a kickass chassis which is highly aerodynamic, they have also added some finite touches to the interior. The car is equipped with a 5-inch color display. It lets you easily control and optimize the infotainment system besides other features. Users can choose to upgrade to a bigger 7-inch display if they choose to. The windshield and top is layered to offer the best acoustics out of your music system.
The latest Altima is fully connected and supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto among other newest technologies that one could think of.
