Here at Zeigler Nissan of Gurnee, one of our favorite parts of a new model year is seeing what kind of new features and technology an automaker will roll out. But what we really love is when we find a new model that we think has a little something for every driver. This year, we think that car is the 2016 Nissan Altima. Whether you're a speed demon or looking for something sensible, this sleek sedan delivers. Visit our Nissan dealership near Kenosha, WI and check it out!
2016 Nissan Altima® Details
The 2016 Nissan Altima is available in seven different trim levels, from the 2.5 to the high-end 3.5 SL. Drivers can choose from a number of customization options and two different engines. The efficient 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine produces 182 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque, while keeping fuel efficiency high at an EPA-estimated 39 MPG on the highway or 27 MPG in cities. Models with four-cylinder engines become even more efficient if you opt for the Active Grille Shutters, which automatically close at highway speeds and decrease wind resistance.
If you want to go for performance, you can push this front-wheel drive sedan to its limit with the optional 3.5-liter V6 engine, which produces 270 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque without drastically lowering fuel economy. No matter what kind of driver you are, there's a Nissan Altima for you.
2016 Nissan Altima® Safety Features
We know that our customers are looking for the latest safety features when they pick out a new car, and the new Nissan Altima has you covered. Like all Nissan cars, it's outfitted with some of the newest and most innovative safety technology in the industry. The Nissan brand's Intelligent Safety Shield Technologies, like Blind Spot Warning and Intelligent Cruise Control, are designed to keep you safe no matter where your journey takes you. Forward Emergency Braking uses advanced radar technology to help you avoid a collision with a car in front of you or, if it's unavoidable, reduce the severity of the accident. Another option is the innovative Predictive Forward Collision Warning feature, which monitors the speeds of two cars in front of you to make sure they're not decelerating. Meanwhile, the RearView Monitor backup camera and Rear Cross Traffic Alert can keep you safe in parking lots by letting you know if a car is coming as you try to reverse out of a spot. It's no surprise that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the 2016 Nissan Altima a Top Safety Pick +.
2016 Nissan Altima® Special Features
We know that what some drivers really want to hear about is the in-car technology, and Nissan engineers have not disappointed with the 2016 Nissan Altima. The Advanced Drive Assist® display puts the most relevant information, like turn-by-turn instructions or notice of an incoming phone call, at your fingertips. NissanConnect services give you access to Google® Search, a great way to find nearby restaurants or gas stations and Bluetooth® connectivity means that your favorite music and other smartphone functions are never out of reach. You can even equip some trim levels with an optional 4G WiFi hotspot, making it easy to stream music or your favorite podcasts.
