The first eight months of 2015 were fantastic for the Altima, with over 238,200 units sold. That’s a 1.3% increase over the first eight months of 2014. The redesigned 2016 Nissan Altima will roll out to the public come mid-November and the changes aren’t anything to scoff at.
The newest Altima is a real rival for its main competitor and front runner, the Toyota Camry. Even with the growing popularity of SUVs and crossovers, sedans are still one of the bestselling segments in America.
In an effort to take the lead, Nissan has pulled out all the stops, including adding advanced safety features, a luxurious interior, and much more.
Topping out the list of advanced safety features are forward emergency braking, forward collision warning, and radar-based blind spot warning. These safety features were previously only available on the Infiniti brand.
On the inside, the 2016 Altima’s changes include freshly designed seats, a new center stack, and higher quality materials.
Better yet, Nissan stated that the Altima will also come with an SR sport package. That model will bring cosmetic changes like alloy rims and a new grille, as well as mechanical changes like a 258% stiffer rear stabilizer.
We here at Cronic Nissan can’t want to see who prevails in the midsize segment!
