2016 Nissan Altima Walk Around


Adopting some of the styling cues introduced on the sleek Maxima sedan, the Nissan Altima gets a fresh new look at both front and rear for 2016. Fenders and the hood have been reshaped, and the front fascia sits lower. Appearance of the V-shaped grille now reflects the latest Nissan theme.

At the rear, wider taillamps fit into a new fascia, bumper, and trunk lid, and bumper, while basic sheetmetal is essentially unchanged. LED headlights are newly available.

Altima SR is distinguished by smoked headlight housings, fog lights, and a decklid spoiler.

Interior

The 2016 Altima cabin has straightforward layout and is improved over the 2015 model. The dashboard has pleasing shapes, though symmetrical and restrained. The shape of the new dashboard shrinks knee room slightly.

Controls on the center stack are easy to use, and the wide console holds a big storage bin. Although interior fits and finishes are mostly good, soft-touch plastics predominate. Inside the SR, blue stitching on the seats, steering wheel, and shift knob contrasts with black upholstery.

Front seats are impressively comfortable. Taller drivers shouldn’t feel cramped, considering the Altima’s 45-inch legroom and 40-inch head space. While the rear seat appears cavernous, head clearance barely prevents tall passengers from contacting the headliner. Rear legroom ranks near average, but foot space is limited.

At 15.4 cubic feet, trunk space is roughly average.
