Newcomers on the block don’t always get the warmest of welcomes, but the 2016 Nissan Altima sedan won’t be having any problems of that sort. In fact, its arrival is very much highly anticipated, and for very good reasons. In fact, car manufacturer Nissan has said itself that the 2016 recreation can be considered to be “one of the most extensive mid-cycle makeovers in Nissan history.”
On the engine front, the Altima does retain its two engine choices of a 2.5-liter four cylinder and a 3.5-liter V-6. Both feature a Continuously Variable Automatic Transmission (CVT), while in terms of horsepower and torque rating, the four-cylinder rates 182 and 180, while the V-6 provides up to 270 and 251.
The change can be felt in the handling. Of course, tires have been replaced and upgraded, too, and the electric power steering have been tweaked to deliver a better feel.
If you want to immediately see what the differences really are, then you need go farther than Nissan dealerships serving Albuquerque, NM. There you can easily spot the Altima, with its brand new fascia and headlights, reshaped hood and fenders, and new prominent V-shaped grille.
The boomerang style seems to be a recurring theme throughout the vehicle, too, as the tail lamps, bumper and trunk lid also sport the design. For a closer look at the 2016 Nissan Altima, set an appointment with your trusted Nissan dealer.
