Engine Oomph

Two mighty engine options are offered onboard the 2016 Altima models.

Five of the Altima trims, including the base model, are powered by a 2.5L DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine that produces 182 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque.

The two highest Altima trims feature a 3.5L DOHC 24-valve V6 engine that delivers 270 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque.

Each engine brings the power you need to get where you’re going—but it’s nice to know you have options when browsing the Altima lineup for your dream model.

Outstanding Handling

The Altima keeps on giving when you’re out on the road, with cutting-edge features to enhance the driving experience in incredible ways.

Each Altima model has been engineered to offer intuitive responsiveness, allowing even an average driver to feel like a NASCAR professional as they corner and maneuver in this outstanding car.

A feature called Active Understeer Control, which is offered standard in each of the 2016 Altima models, reads each individual cornering situation and can apply braking force to whichever wheel needs it, helping drivers deftly steer through any turn.

The Altima’s outstanding handling is even further boosted by a rear multi-link suspension system, so drivers can truly feel the sensation of cornering like a pro.

Impressive Efficiency

The Altima additionally delivers outstanding efficiency with features like Xtronic CVT transmission, which is offered standard across the Altima lineup.

Xtronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) is able to maintain ideal engine rpm in virtually any driving conditions, providing a veritable gearless experience that brings a boost of power when it’s needed and maintains low rpm for efficient motoring in normal driving conditions.
