If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. At least that’s Nissan’s train of thought with the 2017 Altima. The 2017 Altima is on sale at dealerships starting from $23,335, including destination. That’s the same starting price as last year.
The midsize sedan has been Nissan’s top seller. The automaker sold an impressive 330,000 Altima’s last year. (However, Altima sales tanked in August as consumers shift towards larger SUVs.)
Nissan doesn’t change a thing about the new 2017 model compared to 2016. It continues to offer what Nissan calls “class-leading” fuel economy of 39 mpg highway miles. It’s thanks to the base 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine which tops out at 182-horsepower with 180 pound-feet of torque. An available 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine offers 270-horsepower. The 3.5 option only comes on the SR and SL trims. All the trims come with Xtronic CVT and front-wheel-drive.
The Altima comes with a ton of safety features. They include Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Easy-fill Tire Alert, and NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats. Other available Nissan’s Safety Shield technology suite includes Blind Spot Warning, Intelligent Cruise Control, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
Even though the model stays the same for 2017, it did just get upgraded last year. The restyled 2016 featured Nissan’s new hood design. Other offered features include front fog lights, 18-inch wheels, keyless entry, pushbutton start, and remote start.
The Altima still comes in four trim levels: S, SR, SV, and SL. The base 2.5-liter engine comes standard and the SR and SL offer the 3.5-liter choice. Check out the chart below for pricing info.
