2016 Nissan Altima Trim Levels

The Nissan Altima was introduced in the 1990s and is the best-selling sedan in the manufacturer's history. The 2016 model is modern spin on a classic complete with a powerful performance and upgraded technology. Our guide will teach you all you need to know about the Nissan Altima trim levels.

Altima Standard 2.5 and S

The base Nissan Altima 2.5 has integrated groundbreaking technology into a midsize sedan. The Altima 2.5 has a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with the Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission.

 The exterior has been redesigned with aerodynamic technology that gives it a more futuristic look. The front-end grille has been remade along with the headlights and taillights; drivers can now enjoy LED visibility with the headlights. Start your car with the keyless remote entry and push button ignition.

The craftsmanship of the Nissan Altima 2.5 S exterior is no match for the smooth renovation of the interior. NissanConnect is an interface designed to work in conjunction with the interior screen. Drivers can listen to SiriusXM or play their own music with built-in USB ports. The Bose audio system comes standard with all Nissan Altima trims so listeners can enjoy superior sound quality in any trim.

Nissan Altima 2.5 SR Trim

This is the sportier version of the Altima's base trim. The exterior has a rear spoiler, fog lights, and daytime running lights, plus there's a fuel-efficient engine that gets up to 182 horsepower. The interior features the Advanced Driver Assist display. Drivers get a 4-inch LCD screen on their instrument panel that alerts them to all service issues in their car.

Altima 2.5 SV Trim Level

The Nissan Intelligent Key allows drivers to operate the car with a remote engine stop and start feature. It also includes further driver assist technology such as Vehicle Dynamic Control. This technology reduces your speed or applies the brakes depending on your steering actions, which it closely monitors.

2.5 SL Altima Trim

 The SL features are varied. Nissan has tried to combine the best technology from previous versions with new aspects.

The rearview mirror has an auto dimming feature that comes in handy during nighttime driving when the glare from other vehicles can obstruct your view. Drivers and passengers get to control the climate with the dual-zone automatic temperature control.

2016 Nissan Altima 3.5 SR

In the second highest trim level of the Nissan Altima, the 3.5 SR, drivers can enjoy a 3.5L V6 engine that gets up to 270 horsepower. The steering wheel includes paddle shifters to help you control the vehicle with ease. The active understeer control helps you to navigate corners smoothly by applying light brake pressure to the inner tires when you make turns.

Nissan Altima 3.5 SL Trim

The final Nissan Altima trim has heated exterior mirrors that fold. The mirrors also display LED turn signals to help drivers navigate traffic.

One of its most interesting features is the front and rear sonar system. This system makes a beeping sound when it senses any obstructions near your front or rear bumper.
