In 2019, Nissan introduced the current sixth-generation Altima with standard AWD, helping the mid-size sedan model stand out in the family-car segment. The Altima has been around since the early 1990s, when it replaced a model called the Stanza.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
For 2022, a new SR Midnight Edition trim replaces last year’s SR model.
The Altima line starts with SE trim, and moves through SR Midnight Edition to the top-end Platinum trim. All are powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder engine, a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and the aforementioned AWD system.
SE trim comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, heated front seats with power driver’s adjustments, 8.0-inch touchscreen, 7.0-inch driver info display, and passive keyless entry.
SE’s standard safety kit comprises automatic high beams, backup sensors, rear door alert, blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, rear automatic braking, driver alertness monitor, and forward collision avoidance with pedestrian detection.
SR Midnight Edition gains 19-inch wheels, fog lights, navigation, auto-dimming rearview mirror, dual-zone A/C, and a sunroof.
Platinum gains leather seating, a power front-passenger seat, a nine-speaker stereo, surround-view cameras, adaptive cruise control, highway steering assist, intelligent lane intervention, and traffic sign recognition.
Nissan’s fuel consumption estimates for the Altima are 9.1/6.5 L/100 km (city/highway) for SE trim, and 9.3/6.7 in SR and Platinum models.
With the Altima, Nissan competes with the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Subaru Legacy, Chevrolet Malibu, Hyundai Sonata, and Kia K5.
