With a new exterior appearance, a refined personal space interior, enhanced connectivity, more available safety and security features and an expanded model lineup introduced for the 2016 model year, the Nissan Altima enters 2017 with strong sales momentum as one of the top choices for mid-size sedan buyers seeking style, performance, quality and value.
The 2017 Altima is available in a choice of seven models – 2.5, 2.5 S, 2.5 SR, 2.5 SV, 2.5 SL, 3.5 SR and 3.5 SL. The five 2.5-liter models feature a 179-horsepower 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine, while 3.5-liter Altimas offer a 270-horsepower 3.5-liter DOHC V6. Both engines are matched with a standard smooth and efficient Xtronic transmission with enhanced third-generation D-Step Shift logic.
The 2017 Altima SR, offered with both 2.5-liter and 3.5-liter powerplants, adds an increased level of unique equipment and sporty performance at an affordable price. Based on the popular Altima 2.5 S, the 2.5 SR adds smoked headlight and taillight housings, Daytime Running Lights, fog lights, rear decklid spoiler, an 8-way power driver's seat with 2-way power lumbar support, manual mode Xtronic transmission with paddle shifters, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear shifter, unique sport interior accents, sport-tuned suspension, and 18-inch sport machine-finished aluminum-alloy wheels with Dunlop 235/45R18 tires. Along with the larger 3.5-liter V6, the Altima 3.5 SR also adds LED headlights.
