If you are searching for a mid-sized sedan that is not only a “head turner”, but quick and powerful. Then that hunt must include the new redesigned Nissan Altima that is proudly on display with the friendly folks at Landers McLarty Nissan located at 6520 University Dr. in Huntsville, Alabama or by calling the dealership at 256.837.5752 today!
This new “Mini Maxima” grabs attention with its tapered nose, masculine grille, squinty looking headlamps, and shiny 19-inch wheels with a skin that is taut and very handsome. No more driving away in a typical sedan without being noticed.
The trustworthy organization Consumer Reports even gave the Altima one of their coveted “Check Marks” for a Recommended Vehicle. This year the Nissan Altima offers another energetic engine along with the base V6. The innovative turbocharged four cylinder is the world’s first Variable Compression Turbo engine that allows you to choose how your engine performs. This new Turbo responds to the amount of force you place on the gas pedal and adjusts its compression ratio for more power when you need it and efficiency when you don't.
The SR Turbo punches out 248 lively ponies and 280 lb-ft of asphalt grabbing torque and will deliver you at 60 mph in just 6 seconds. How cool is that? Car and Driver commented: “I kid you not, the engine was a really big surprise. It's not buzzy and it is quick.” You will also find that this new Altima is a blast to drive and to be seen in. Then add on the new available AWD (another first from Nissan) and that will put you ahead of the rest of the herd of mid-sized sedans.
The new Altima also enjoys a weight loss with the use of more high strength steel and the chassis is exceptionally well controlled and sure footed as you take on those county curves with a growing smile; thanks to the Intelligent Ride Control and Intelligent Trace Control systems. These improvements continue when you slide into those comfy Nissan seats with the added bolstering. Experts say they are probably the best seats you will find in this segment. Also new for the Altima is the updated infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, USB ports, 8-inch touch screen and other amenities. On the safety side, this new Altima has you and yours covered with the available Nissan's Safety Shield 360.
This amazing system includes standard automatic crash prevention with braking for front and rear, pedestrian detection, lane departure, blind spot and cross traffic alerts. Other available features for safety include traffic sign recognition and ProPilot Assist. Aren't you glad you waited? Now couldn't be a better time to test a new Nissan Altima out. You will not be disappointed.
