2016 Nissan Altima around Rio Rancho is one of the best cars in its segment. The Altima has been revamped to reflect the style of its bigger counterparts on the Nissan line, namely the Maxima and the Murano. This style is apparent with the change of the Altima’s fascia and taillights as well. The V-shaped grill and the boomerang-shaped head and taillights are all tailored after Nissan’s earlier releases as well, showing the uniformity of the different models. For those looking for a smaller Nissan that looks just like the bigger ones, the Altima was made for you.
The Nissan Altima has been consistent in its good engine performance and its fuel efficiency, with its V-6 engine clocking in at a powerful 270 horsepower and 251 lb/ft. torque; while the four-cylinder engine rates for 182 hp and 180 torque. Fuel efficiency goes at 27 miles per gallon in the city and 39 on the highway for the 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine while the V-6 reaches 22 city and 32 highway mpg.
Featured in the Nissan Altima were once options for the older models, but are now standard for the latest models. These features are the blind-spot warning, lane-departure warning, and other driver-assistance systems, as seems the trend with the 2016 vehicle releases. Sporty trim levels are also in, with the Nissan Altima offering seven levels thanks to the addition of the V-6 engine option. The sportier trim levels gain 4 out of 10 purchases, as claimed by Nissan themselves. These trim levels are available at most dealerships of Nissan near Rio Rancho.
