Just a glimpse at this beauty would give you an idea of the thought-process Nissan has put in to create a spectacular vehicle. The car has classy curves, and the front and back lights accentuate the overall beauty of the body. But, that’s not all of it, as the main features are under the hood and inside the car.
Engine Power and Performance
To start with, the 2016 Nissan Altima comes with two main engine options. The base model comes with a 2.5 liter four cylinder engine that is capable of producing 182 horsepower and comes coupled with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). This mechanism ensures maximum fuel efficiency. The engine is capable of giving out 27 mpg on city roads and 39 mpg on highway roads. Users also get the option of a 3.5 liter V6 engine that is capable of producing 270 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The second engine is capable of producing 22 mpg for city roads and 26 mpg for highway roads.
Active Grille Shutters
The Aerodynamic exterior design comes with Active Grille Shutters that are capable of automatically shutting down at highway speeds. This reduces wind resistance and gives better speed and fuel efficiency.
