2016 Nissan Altima remodel
For decades, Nissan has been making its mark on the auto world. Especially with its more popular vehicles, like the Maxima and Altima, the brand has been able to gain a lot of ground in the midsize car segment. For 2016, Nissan’s famous Altima has been redesigned, giving drivers more to look forward to (other than a new model year stamp). The Nissan Altima has already seen five years of sales growth, giving the automaker the confidence to switch things up a bit. If you’re curious about the 2016 Nissan Altima remodel, we have a slew of details.
New Nissan Altima features and upgrades
It hasn’t been terribly long since the Altima has had a complete redesign (three years ago was the last), but Nissan has worked elements of the attractive Maxima into the newest version. The front and rear fascias have been entirely remodeled, complete with a new V-shaped grille and LED headlights. On the interior, the new Altima is equipped with a 5-inch touchscreen (standard), with a 7-inch screen as an available upgrade. While there have been several aesthetic and technological improvements, the powertrain remains similar to previous models years, with the available 2.5-liter four-cylinder (183 horsepower) and a 3.5-liter V6 (270 horsepower) .
2016 Nissan Altima efficiency rating
While great new features are always a perk, a bad efficiency rating can be the reason a car is avoided. Gas prices fluctuate frequently, leaving drivers with an inherent desire to own an efficient car. If stopping at the fuel pump is one of your least favorite activities, the new Altima may be your best option. At 27 miles per gallon in the city and up to 39 on the highway, the 2016 Nissan is one of the most efficient vehicles in its class, giving you the freedom to drive past the fuel pump more frequently.
