2016 Nissan Altima offers enhanced performance, improved fuel economy, new safety features

Redesigned 2016 Nissan Altima available now in Dickson, Tennessee

Just three years after a full redesign, Nissan’s flagship vehicle has undergone one of the most extensive midcycle makeovers in the Japanese automaker’s history -- introducing the all-new redesigned 2016 Nissan Altima.

The Altima has never been better, due to a new design, new driving feel, better fuel economy, a new sport Altima SR grade and a wide variety of improved technology, connectivity, and available safety and security features -- all designed to make the Altima a better value and better choice for mid-size sedan buyers than ever before.

"The enhancements were made with input from our customers....They wanted more standard features, a more responsive driving feel and more personal style – check, check and check," said Pierre Loing, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc "This new Altima is the most dynamic, comfortable and best-equipped mid-size sedan we've ever built."

A New Look
Although the Altima just had a redesign three years ago, Nissan has since developed a bold new look called “energetic flow,” which saw additions of a muscular front fascia with distinctive "V-motion" grille and available signature LED boomerang headlights, as well as a new rear bumper and wider four-piece taillights featuring a boomerang shape.

Best-in-Class Standard Fuel Economy
There's nothing better than driving a car with the best-in-class*** standard fuel economy. Getting behind the wheel of an Altima means you won’t be making frequent stops to a gas station, thanks to 27 mpg city, 39 mpg highway and 31 mpg combined for 2.5-liter models. The Altima is the mid-size sedan with the largest improvement in fuel economy over the past 10 years!

We know how important safety is when it comes to your next vehicle purchase, which makes the 2016 Altima all the more appealing. The new Altima offers a vast array of available safety features, including Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), radar-based Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Forward Emergency Braking (FEB), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). 

Safety First
The available class-exclusive**** Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) system can warn the driver of risks that lie beyond the driver's forward field of view, such as a potential forward collision, while radar-based Blind Spot Warning (BSW) helps warn of approaching vehicles from either the right or left side of the rear of the Altima when it is in reverse.

Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) uses radar to maintain a set distance between the Altima and the vehicle ahead, even braking to maintain that distance, while Forward Emergency Braking (FEB) provides audio and visual display warnings to help alert the driver of a potential collision and help reduce speed.
