Nissan Altima 2.5

The 2017 Nissan Altima 2.5 features a 179 horsepower, 2.5 liter 4-cylinder engine that provides ample performance and is paired with an automatic transmission that is tremendously responsive, making for an unforgettable driving experience that you wouldn’t otherwise expect from a sedan. The Altima 2.5 also has plenty to offer when it comes to fuel economy, getting 27 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. Even as a base trim, the Altima 2.5 manages to offer drivers a ton of features without bumping up the price. The advanced drive-assist displays calls, service warnings and other notifications designed to help you keep your eyes on the road. Bluetooth, air conditioning, push start ignition, and 60/40 split-folding rear seats are also included to increase your cargo space.

Nissan Altima 2.5 SL

The 2017 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL proves a notable upgrade that is well worth the extra cost.

Leather seating provides a more upscale interior while a 9-speaker Bose Premium audio system provides a luxury entertainment experience that everyone in the car can enjoy. 8-way, power-adjustable seating provides superior comfort and support for drivers, while 4-way power seating is available to passengers. Additionally, the Nissan Altima 2.5 SL features a HomeLink Universal Transceiver, Nissan Intelligent Key and dual-zone climate control. Driver safety features like blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert are also available.

Altima 3.5 SR

The Altima 3.5 SR is the perfect trim for those craving higher performance. The 3.5 liter V6 engine delivers a whopping 270 horsepower which is a remarkable difference from the base trim. Somehow not much in the way of fuel economy is sacrificed with the 3.5 SR getting 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. The 3.5 SR also offers manual control and features paddle shifters, giving you full control. The AM/FM/CD audio system features a 5 inch color display and comes with a rearview camera view. Further, cruise control comes standard, although it is not radar controlled. If this isn’t enough, there are plenty of packages and accessories you can purchase with the Altima at an affordable rate.
