Nissan Altima Sedan specs

Model overview

The Nissan Altima is a mid-size vehicle that has been produced by Nissan as 1992. It is a sequel of the Nissan Bluebird line, which was launched in 1955.

The Altima has historically been bigger, more potent, and more luxurious than the Nissan Sentra but limited so than the Nissan Maxima. The first through fourth generation vehicles were produced exclusively in the United States and formally marketed in North and South America. For other markets, Nissan marketed a related mid-size sedan named the Nissan Teana which was within the Altima and Maxima in terms of size. In 2013, the Teana became a rebadged variant of the fifth-generation Altima.

The name "Altima" was first used to a top trim range of the Nissan Leopard for the Japanese market in 1986. In 1992, Nissan abandoned the Stanza which was a Nissan Bluebird clone, substituting it with the US-built Altima, while continuing a compact vehicle. The first Altima was constructed in June 1992, as a 1993 model. All Altimas were assembled in Smyrna, Tennessee, till June 2004, when Nissan's Canton, Mississippi plant also began making it.

The Nissan Altima is available in five trim levels: S, SR, SV, SL, and Platinum. The Altima comes with a standard engine of 2.5-liter four-cylinder (188 horsepower, 180 lb-ft of torque) and matched with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive is by default, and all-wheel drive is optional. An optional turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder powertrain with 248 hp and 280 lb-ft is available for SR and Platinum trims alone. It's also mated with a CVT automatic, but it's defined to front-wheel drive.
