Are you in the market for a stylish sedan that’s the perfect combination of striking design, incredible efficiency and advanced technology? The Nissan Altima is all those things and much more. With plenty of recent technology upgrades, a fresh look and improved fuel efficiency, the Altima is a great choice no matter which model year you opt for. Check out how the Nissan Altima has changed throughout the last few years to see which one is right for you.
The Nissan Altima has been a fan favorite throughout its life span, bringing joy to drivers everywhere. Currently in its fifth generation, the Altima continues to impress year after year with sleek design, premium comfort and integrated tech making any journey a memorable one regardless of the destination.
For 2018, all Nissan Altima models include Nissan's advanced Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning (I-FCW) to provide added peace of mind no matter which model you choose. Nissan has also simplified the model lineup to include the 2.5 S, 2.5 SR, 2.5 SV, 2.5 SL and 3.5 SL models only. Additionally, the Altima 3.5 SL receives standard Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC)3 and upgraded NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Services, featuring Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, making it an appealing choice among sedans.
Things got a little dark in 2017 for the Altima, but in an incredibly good way. The New Midnight Edition was introduced, featuring 18-inch black wheels, black outside rearview mirror caps and a black rear spoiler to give a sleek upgrade to the already impressive Altima models. Plus, more standard safety features were added, including Forward Emergency Braking (FEB) and Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) on the 2017.5 Altima 2.5 SV, 2.5 SL and 3.5 SL models.
The 2016 Nissan Altima received an extensive redesign to freshen things up for today’s driver. With improved fuel economy, a new sport SR model and expanded "Safety Shield Technologies", the 2016 Altima is the perfect choice if you’re looking for efficiency, safety and a modern flare.
The Altima received numerous tech upgrades for 2014 and 2015, including a new global smartphone integration platform and new NissanConnectSM Apps to help drivers stay connected on the go. Plus, the Altima 3.5 SL now comes with NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps, Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Moving Object Detection (MOD) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) as standard equipment.
Although the Altima received exciting updates for 2014 and 2015, we do have some bad news for you coupe fans. The Altima Coupe was discontinued in 2014, so if it’s an Altima coupe your heart desires, you’ll have to search for model years from 2008-2013 to find one.
With a new generation comes a completely redesigned Nissan Altima. Nissan didn’t hold anything back when giving the 2013 Altima a complete overhaul to wow loyal customers and to attract new drivers. Equipped with a redesigned 2.5-liter engine delivering improved fuel efficiency, next-generation advanced Xtronic CVT®, a new advanced rear multi-link suspension, new Electronic Hydraulic Power-Assisted Steering (EHPS) system, NASA-Inspired "Zero-Gravity" Seats, new Advanced Drive-Assist™ Display (ADAD), NissanConnectSM and the available Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Moving Object Detection (MOD), the 2013 Altima made an entrance like never before.
