Stylish and Convenient New Look
For 2016, the Nissan Altima adopts a new, sportier design both inside and out. Its exterior features more premium materials, an aerodynamic shape and eye catching accents like available LED headlights. Its interior also has high quality trims and material as well as available leather seats to promote a more luxurious ride.

With this, you’ll be able to control the locks and lights of the vehicle remotely and contact emergency services when needed.
Well-Balanced Standard Performance
Everyone wants to experience the best of both power and fuel economy in a vehicle’s standard performance, and this year’s Nissan Altima delivers just that. Its 2.5L I-4 engine produces 182 horsepower. Plus, it comes with a Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System and works with the Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission® to achieve and EPA-estimated 39 highway mpg.
Additional Powertrain Options
Drivers seeking even more power and an even sportier performance can opt for a 3.5L V6 engine for their Altima. This gets up to 270 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 32 highway mpg. As an added bonus, vehicles equipped with this engine come with a sport-tuned suspension to optimize handling and control.
Great Dependability & Safety
Last but not least, the 2016 Nissan Altima offers exceptional safety for everyone onboard thanks to its available NISSAN SAFETY SHIELD TECHNOLOGIES™. These include:
- Predictive Forward Collision Warning
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Blind Spot Warning
- Forward Emergency Braking
On top of that, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the Altima a Top Safety Pick + for 2016.
Cons of the 2016 Nissan Altima
While overall, the 2016 Nissan Altima is a great choice for all drivers, there are a few key disadvantages you may want to keep in mind to help you make the most educated car buying decision.
Not Much Space for Passengers
Many do find the 2016 Altima to be a bit cramped especially for bigger families. Overall, it has 101.9 cubic feet of interior space with 45 inches of legroom in the front seats and 36.1 inches of legroom in the back seats. However, if you’re using this car to commute to work or just cruise around on a nice day, you won’t feel cramped. With its driver-centric cockpit, you’ll have enough space to stretch and be comfortable during your travels.
Few Standard Luxuries
The biggest pros to the 2016 Nissan Altima is its features. Unfortunately, most of them are not available for the base trim—but of course, that isn’t all bad. For families looking for a new car for their young driver, the lack of standard luxuries in the base trim of the Altima will provide less distractions to help them build safer driving habits.
