    2016 Altima® 3.5 SL


    22 mpg city, 32 mpg hwy

    A four-door sedan delivering small-car fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance. Get around city on 22 mpg and get down the highway at 32 mpg. [*]

    Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission)

    The Altima’s CVT virtually eliminates fixed gears by using a single metal belt that runs around two variable-diameter pulleys. Once a transmission isn’t limited by fixed gears, it can operate far more effectively. So whatever your right foot asks for, the CVT responds with the right rpms and engine speed.

    Active Understeer Control

    A Nissan first, the Altima is equipped with Active Understeer Control to help give you a smooth, controlled, and comfortable ride when you take a corner. The system senses understeer and oversteer and subtly applies braking power to the inside wheels when you are turning, helps give you sharper handling.



    Aggressive design

    Dramatic styling and serious performance credentials give the Altima an aggressive disposition. Outside, functional character lines and powerful styling lower the aerodynamic profile, while chrome accents underscore Altima’s bold new attitude.


    Those chiseled curves and muscular lines aren’t just for show—they help reduce drag, allowing the Altima to slip through the air with more ease and less resistance than ever. The hood, front fascia, mirrors, and even the taillights, have been engineered to help drop the coefficient of drag to a slippery 0.26. A lower coefficient of drag means better aerodynamics and better fuel efficiency. [*]

    18" Aluminum-alloy wheels

    The Altima 3.5 SL is equipped with a set of 18-inch lightweight aluminum-alloy wheels and low-profile 235/45 R18 All-season tires.

    Power sliding glass moonroof with one-touch open/close and tilt feature

    Enjoy the view through an expansive glass moonroof. The moonroof is powered to slide open and closed and tilt up and down all at the touch of a button.

    Folding heated outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators

    Subtle but practical, Altima’s powered heated outside mirrors offer flexibility in tight squeezes, while the LED turn signals provide extra awareness to surrounding vehicles and pedestrians.

    Front and Rear Sonar System

    Altima's Front and Rear Sonar System beeps when it detects objects near the bumper while backing up, and increases in frequency the closer you get to help you maneuver in tight spaces. [*]



    NissanConnect℠ with Navigation and Mobile Apps with 7.0" color touch-screen monitor and voice recognition

    Using either the hands-free voice activation or the touch-screen, this innovative system helps you find practically any location with just an address. [*]

    8-way power adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support

    Comfortable combinations are endless with the 8-way adjustable driver’s seat. And with the power control, personalizing your driving experience is easy and efficient.

    Heated front seats and steering wheel

    The first time you try heated seats on a cold morning, you’ll wonder how you ever did without. They quickly and efficiently warm things up for your and your passenger, and your hands get the same luxurious treatment from the heated steering wheel.



    Blind Spot Warning (BSW)

    Altima helps you out with lane changes too. When a car is detected in the blind spot area, an indicator in the driver's or front passenger's doors light up, and an icon appears on the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display. If you put on your turn signal while the vehicle is there, the indicator flashes and a warning chime alerts you. [*]

    Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

    When you are in reverse, RCTA helps detect vehicles approaching up to 66 feet away from either side. If an approaching vehicle is detected, the system provides visual and audio warnings. [*]

    Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with individual tire pressure display and Easy-Fill Tire Alert

    Take away the guesswork when it comes to your tire pressure with Altima’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System. A signal illuminates on your dash to tell you when your tire pressure is low, and the individual tire pressure display will indicate which tire is low on the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display. When filling your tires, Easy-Fill Tire Alert gives you a friendly beep of the horn when you’ve reached the right pressure. [*]

    Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with Traction Control System (TCS)

    This standard feature—sometimes called stability control—continuously monitors your steering and braking actions, senses any oversteer or understeer, and compensates by reducing engine speed and/or applying brake pressure to specific wheels. In addition, the Traction Control System can sense front wheel slip or spin and responds by instantly helping reduce throttle which helps you both regain grip and maintain control of the road. [*]

    Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD)

    This innovative braking system responds automatically to changing conditions. ABS helps you maintain control by working to prevent wheel lockup during emergency braking situations. And if the rear of Altima is weighted with passengers, cargo, or even just a full tank of gas, Electronic Brake force Distribution sends extra force to the rear brakes to compensate.

    Nissan Advanced Air Bag System

    Nissan Advanced Air Bag System includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. The inflation rate of these dual-stage air bags adjusts depending on crash severity and seat belt usage. In addition, two supplemental air bags are built into the front seats to offer side impact protection and move with you as you adjust your seating position. Also, roof-mounted curtain side impact supplemental air bags with rollover sensors help provide head protection for both rows of outboard occupants. [*]

    LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren)

    LATCH is another way we’re working to keep children safe. The Altima LATCH system lets you secure LATCH-compatible child restraints in the back seat without having to use seat belts or a locking clip.
