Nissan Altima is one of the year’s best and most significant cars in its category. A spectacularly designed, feature rich sedan that does everything a high-end luxury car can do, but for much less.
A winner on many levels, the 2.5 litre engine car is unquestionably luxurious, it enjoys superb build quality and comes with many standard features.
The sixth-generation Nissan Altima continues to include attributes that have always been at the car’s core — reliability, great resale, powertrains, premium interior design, plenty of space for occupants and luggage (436 litres), plus a fuel economy of 17.6 km/litre.
With an all-new 4-cylinder Direct Injection engine and 188 horsepower, it is not surprising it produces an impressive 17.6 km/litre while running quicker, quieter, and smoother than previous Altima engines. No wonder it is among today's front-running family sedans.
The stand out attribute of the car is the ProPILOT Assist-- offering less stress, more confidence, and an enjoyable driving experience. Using a forward-facing camera, forward-facing radar, sensors and electronic control module,ProPILOT Assist gives a helping hand in plenty of things—like keepingthe driver centered in your lane and maintaining a preset distance from the vehicle ahead. Blending Nissan’s Intelligent Cruise Control and Steering Assist technologies, ProPILOT brings the vehicle to a full stop, holds in place, and brings you back up to your set speed when traffic starts moving again.
Making you feel confident, excited, and connected, the available dynamic driving technology Nissan Intelligent Mobility truly helps you embrace the pure joy of beingbehind the wheel.
Featuringan extensive list of advanced safety features, the large sedan seats five people and comes with a suite of advanced driver-assistance equipment. While the safety features include front side and curtain airbags, around view monitor with moving object detection, automatic parking brake control and rearview camera.Driving Assistance equipment includes Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Cross Traffic Alert (CTA), Driver Attention Alert (DAA), Forward Emergency Brake (FEB), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Departure Prevention (LDP), High Beam Assist (HBA). Forward Emergency Braking and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning system uses a radar sensor located in the front of the vehicle to detect pedestrians and cars.
Like the designers conceptualized, the Altima interior is inclusive for all occupants, with a sense of barrier-free togetherness. Passengers and the driver feel visually connected in a harmonious space that balances form, function and ease of use.
Many factors contribute to the new Altima making the driver feel self-assured and in control – from the firm hold of the leather seats to the direct response of the engine and transmission, the reduced eye movement of the intuitive metres and controls, the high-quality materials and fit-and-finish, and the Intelligent Driving technologies that are always ready when needed.
The instrument panel features a standard 7-inch Advanced Drive Assist Display in front of the driver and an 8-inch center color display with multi-touch control with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ in the centre. With 9 speakers strategically placed throughout the cabin, custom-tuned by Bose engineers, the Bose Premium Audio System provides the richness and detail of a live performance. It also boasts AM/ FM, HD (MEX), 2 USB Ports, AUX, Bluetooth, Voice, WIFI andNFC.

The automobile has 19-inch wheels, front vented disk brakes, and rear disk brakes, as well as an electronically adjustable mirror with turning lights and chrome door handles.

The exterior color palette of the new Altima also takes a big step away from ordinary. Along with the whites, silvers and black, two Altima-specific colours - Scarlet Ember and Sunset Drift - are designed to drape the expressive body with a standout sense of richness and energy.
In addition to design, luxury and performance, first-rate dependability, top safety scores and impeccable value—Nissan Altima occupies a top spot for comfort and fuel-thriftyfeatures.
There are plenty of reasons to buy this incredible car -- as for me the roomy cabin and comfy seats, plenty of modern technology, a balanced driving experience, and great fuel efficiency are all plusses of selecting a Nissan Altima.
