Driving Impression

A few years back, Altimas were known for relatively sporty behavior. Nowadays, they promise refined ride quality, but don’t stray far from the midsize pack in terms of driving dynamics. Most buyers aren’t likely to feel deprived, appreciating the sedan’s quiet comfort.

Even in SR trim; an Altima cannot accurately be called sporty or particularly stimulating. Still, the SR, turbocharged or not, differs markedly from other Altima models. Stabilizers bars are thicker on the SR, and dampers stiffer. The suspension provides a welcome balance between passenger comfort and firm handling, without turning stiff. Other versions can yield a sense of floatiness when rolling through rough pavement.

Electro-hydraulic power steering tends to be slow, with excessive slack, though sufficiently precise. Brakes are effective, with good pedal feel.

The four-cylinder engine is wholly adequate and impressively thrifty. Acceleration is swifter with the V6, but that engine can sound a bit hoarse at lower speeds. On the highway, it’s louder than expected in a sedan that’s known for sedate travel.

Nissan has been a leader in CVTs, and the Altima version is impressively smooth as well as responsive. Using the virtual gear ratios in V6 and 2.5 SR models can reduce the tendency of the engine to run at high rpm, which otherwise yields a droning sensation.

Nissan’s frugal four-cylinder powertrain is EPA-rated at 27/39 mpg City/Highway, or 31 mpg Combined. The SR drops to 26/37/30 mpg. A V6 Altima is EPA-rated at 22/32 mpg City/Highway, or 26 mpg Combined.

Walk Around

Despite revised styling for 2016, the Altima falls short on visual flair. While clearly worthy of consideration for its road behavior, it’s largely inconspicuous.

For plenty of midsize-sedan buyers, of course, that’s not a drawback at all. While exhibiting a pattern of external bulges, the Altima is nevertheless cleanly designed. The sporty SR trim level derives a somewhat different look from smoked headlight housings, a decklid spoiler, foglamps, and distinctly styled wheels.

Interior Overview

Controls are easy to reach and logically positioned on the Altima’s nicely shaped dashboard, helping to give the cabin a well-balanced and symmetrical, if somewhat bland, appearance. Interior materials are largely soft-touch, besting those used on several competitors. A big storage bin sits within the wide center console.

Optional leather upholstery on upper trim levels adds an appealing luxury factor. Still, the interior fails to come across as upscale or stimulating.

Impressively spacious overall, the Altima provides ample room in the back seat, thanks in part to the relatively long wheelbase. Dimensionally, though, rear legroom ranks around average for the midsize class, and passenger feet might not slide easily beneath the front seats. Most heads won’t contact the headliner.

Comfortable Zero Gravity front seats, initially designed in accord with recommendations by NASA, offer plenty of head and leg space, even for a taller driver. Knee space is a tad limited by the dashboard. Acoustic glass and ample sound-deadening help keep the sedan pleasantly quiet. Measuring 15.4 cubic feet, trunk space ranks close to average.

Summary

Nissan Altima remains a fine mainstream choice in the midsize category, though some competitors offer considerably more modern technology. Choices range from a fleet-oriented four-cylinder base model, up to a V6-powered SL that blends energetic responses with luxury fittings. Even the lower Altima trim levels are better-equipped than might be expected.
