Ranked as the #8 Affordable Midsize Car by U.S. News & World Report, the 2017 Nissan Altima 2.5 S has been relatively unchanged over the recent years. Minor design enhancements to the grille and exterior lighting give this model a slightly sharper look. Updates to safety technology include adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning to help prevent accidents on the road.
Under the hood rests a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 179 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. Equipped with FWD and a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the Altima has an exceptional fuel economy set at 31 mpg combined (27 city/39 highway). According to Edmunds, this five-seater also earned a solid 5-star rating for overall protection in government-conducted crash tests.
The S trim level includes keyless entry and 16-inch steel wheels with plastic covers to avoid scratches. Push-button ignition gives the Altima a futuristic feel, and Siri Eyes Free voice recognition works to sync with iPhones. Displayed on a 5-in monitor is the rearview camera video feed.
