2017 Altima Overview

The Nissan Altima is a roomy midsize sedan.Still one of America's top-selling cars in the segment, the Altima has been part of Nissan's lineup since 1993.Except for some infotainment upgrades, nothing has changed for the 2017 model year.A Midnight Edition package, including black wheels and rear spoiler, is now available.

Unlike some midsize sedans, the Altima can have either four-cylinder or V6 power.Five trim levels are offered: base, S, SV, sporty SR, and top-shelf SL.Each comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, making 179 horsepower.Fuel economy on the highway is rated by EPA at an impressive 39 mpg.

Only Altima SR and Altima SL sedans offer the 3.5-liter V6, which develops 270 horsepower and 251 pound-feet of torque.

Both engines mate with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which is tuned for peak efficiency.With V6 power, the CVT can provide virtual gear ratios, mimicking a conventional automatic.

Not much is included with the base sedan, but the S model adds a proximity key and a 5-inch color LCD screen for the audio system.Altima SR features upgraded suspension tuning and bigger alloy wheels, suggesting a modest revival of the sporty nature that marked early Altimas.SV, the mainstream model, adds blind-spot monitoring and remote engine start.Leather upholstery and Bose speakers are among the premium extras in SL trim level.

All Altimas have a 4-inch LCD information screen ahead of the driver, as well as Bluetooth audio streaming.Nissan's navigation system, available for SV and SL versions, gets a 7-inch video screen and a selection of smartphone apps.

Named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Altima earned five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for its frontal and side-impact crash testing.A four-star rating was given for rollover resistance (a calculated figure).

Availability of advanced safety technology isn't quite as impressive.Only the SL edition can be equipped with forward-collision warning that includes automatic emergency braking, for instance, and it comes in a costly option group.With the optional Tech Package, the Altima earned a Superior score from IIHS for frontal crash protection.

Still, Nissan offers a number of safety items, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control.A rearview camera is standard on all but the base model.
