The Nissan Altima embodies thoughtful technology solutions that make life easier and a premium sedan experience that is unique in its segment. Altima also offers efficient 38 miles-per-gallon fuel economy (2.5-liter engine) and available next-generation Safety Shield Technologies.
The 2015 Altima is available in a range of seven high-value available models that meet a range of customer needs and budgets. For the 2015 model year, Altima 3.5 SV and 3.5 SL grades add NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps, Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Moving Object Detection (MOD) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) as standard equipment. All three trim levels of the 3.5-liter V6 Altima also feature a 1-mpg increase for highway and combined fuel economy ratings.
Other enhancements for 2015 include the addition of 8-way power driver’s seat and 2-way power lumbar support for 2.5 SV and 3.5 SV models, Beige interior-equipped models receive black carpeting and lower seat side trim, fog lights are now standard on the 2.5 SV trim level and Intelligent Climate Control is added to models equipped with Remote Engine Start System (SV, SL).
Altima’s premium style and “class above” appeal continues in 2015 with its wide, aggressive stance and dramatic front end styling. Its wide front and rear track and deeply sculpted fenders combine with a crisp grille design, seamless bumper and projector-type headlights to create a bold, sophisticated appearance.

The award-winning 3.5-liter V6 is rated at 270 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are matched with a standard Xtronic transmission. The 2015 Altima offers a refined multi-link rear suspension benchmarked to leading European sports sedans.
