2015 Nissan Altima
The Nissan Altima has always been one of Nissan’s proudest accomplishments, and the 2015 Altima takes the model to a nice new level of elegant performance at a reasonable price. The base Altima costs about the same as competing vehicles like the Camry or Fusion. However, you can get go for a loaded Altima SL model with a more-economical V6 engine.
What’s new in the 2015 Altima
Last year, Nissan introduced the app driven NissanConnect information and entertainment system and it is now standard on the 2015 Altima SV and SL model vehicles. This nifty feature brings mobile connectivity front and center and allows you to plug in directly with your devices and follow all of your social networks directly from your dashboard. (Don’t worry; the keyboard won’t work when you’re driving.)
In addition to NissanConnect app suite, the base model Altima offers many great standard features and equipment that you’ve come to expect, including:
- Six-way manual driver’s seat
- Four-way front passenger seat
- 60/40-split/folding rear bench seat
- Power windows and door locks
- Tilting and telescoping steering wheel
- Remote keyless entry
- 4.0-inch color customizable Advanced Driver Assist display
Easy-fill tire alert—the Altima’s lights and horn activate to tell you when you’ve added the right amount of air to the tires.
Because of the way Nissan typically bundles its features with each model, there aren’t as many stand-alone features—but there are a few. The SV model can feature a moon roof if you choose, plus rear AC for heightened passenger comfort. You can also upgrade both the SV and SL models to get a tech package for enhanced touch-screen navigation and more.
The new 2015 Altima has one interior feature that is worth mentioning before all others: Zero gravity front bucket seats that have been inspired by NASA’s space program. These extremely comfortable seats more adapt to your body so that you actually feel lighter in the seat.
In addition, the interior of the 2015 Nissan Altima features a higher sense of style. Everything about the new interior feels softer and more sculpted. And there is plenty of legroom in both the front and the rear.
The Altima has always struck a balance between modern style and classic features that enable it to not become outdated too quickly. Its proportions are part of what makes the exterior work so well. It is wider than some of the competition, but has a long body that enables it to have aggressiveness about it. It has a lot of character.
How does the 2015 Altima perform?
One of the best things about the 2015 Altima is the way it drives. Like previous models, the 2015 Nissan Altima is dynamic on the road. Unlike other sedan-type vehicles in its class, the Altima has a sense of nimble fun about it. Key features include:
- Multi-link independent suspension
- Best-in-class variable automatic transmission
- Multi-function rear view camera
- Fatigue reducing bucket seats (inspired by Nasa, remember?)
It’s powerful in both models too. Driving enthusiasts will love the power of the SL version’s 3.5 liter V6 engine. However, the 2.5 liter 4-cylinder engine gets the job done just fine too. Both engines boast great acceleration and a high level of fuel efficiency—22 miles per gallon for the 4-cylinder and 32 miles per gallon for the V6.
All in all, the 2015 Nissan Altima is a lighter, faster and stronger version of the Altima. It has style and performance and a very reasonable price. Learn more or come test drive the new Nissan Altima for yourself at your local Montgomeryville Nissan dealer.
