2016 Nissan Altima | A New Altima, a New Look

Though totally redesigned just three years ago, Nissan has since developed a bold new design language. Known by designers as "energetic flow," the new look was introduced on the 2015 Murano and 2016 Maxima.

Bold New 2016 Nissan Altima Look

In order to bring the new Altima into the new look, the front and rear sections feature totally new designs and sheet metal. In front, that means adding a new lowered muscular front fascia with distinctive "V-motion" grille and new bumper. Also new are the Altima hood and fenders, with new tailored character lines. The headlights are also redesigned - with available signature LED boomerang headlights, fog lights and Daytime Running Lights creating a more contemporary "face."

Bold Colors To Accent Bold Styling

The 2016 Altima is available in nine colors: a new Deep Blue Pearl, along with Java Metallic, Brilliant Silver, Gun Metallic, Super Black, Cayenne Red, Pearl White, Glacier White and Storm Blue.

The major design changes continue in the rear, where a new fascia and bumper add a more dramatic character. The new look is highlighted by the lower and wider four-piece taillights featuring a boomerang shape. The trunk lid is also new, with an integrated spoiler added for the Altima SR grade.

Along with the revised appearance, the new Altima also offers a 10 percent improvement in coefficient of drag - to 0.26 Cd from the previous 0.29 Cd.** The changes come from the addition of an active grille shutter (three percent gain), underfloor aero cover additions (three percent) and the new front and rear fascia and windshield designs (four percent).

Along with the new body panels, the structure underneath was enhanced, reducing weight and adding additional areas of high-strength steel, including the A- and B-pillars. Special efforts were also made to enhance DQR (Durability, Quality and Reliability) and NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness).

The Quieter 2016 Nissan Altima

"Along with the desire for a more distinctive look to the exterior, Altima customers asked us for a more premium feel in everyday driving," said Loing. "You feel the new level of quietness and tightness the moment you drive the new vehicle, no matter which grade level. Simply put, this is the quietest Altima ever."

Quality assurance measures included use of 95 prototype test vehicles, the equivalent of 4,500 test days (more than 12 years) and 350,000 real and simulated miles and the equivalent of 15 years of service for doors, hood and trunk use - such as 200,000 open/close cycles for the new tighter sealing door structures.

Efforts were also made to isolate noise created by hard acceleration, utilizing additional insulation and sound barriers, especially in the firewall area. In addition, new engine mounts have been adopted and the center muffler has been increased in size to further reduce sound transmission into the Altima interior.

2016 Nissan Altima Interior Refinements

Even though the Altima is not a luxury sedan, it does provide some of the highest quality materials to create a cabin that blends together and is neatly accented to give it a flair of elegance. Polished wood and chrome details create an air of professionalism while the soft-touch surfaces eliminate any feelings of discomfort when brushing against side panels or consoles.

One of the components that anyone who has driven the Nissan Altima lately knows about is the "Zero Gravity" NASA inspired seats. The NASA-inspired "zero gravity" driver and front-passenger seats that are intended to help reduce fatigue and alleviate any back or shoulder stress. The way that they have been formed is meant to fit the natural curvature of the body's posture, creating a feeling of "weightlessness."


A New, Information-Centric Interior

Inside the new 2016 Altima's refined, personal space interior, the most noticeable change is in the center of the vehicle, where a new C-stack and center console offer easier use. The new interior appearance shares the "gliding wing" design language established with the new Murano and Maxima.

Altima 2.5 S, 2.5 SR, 2.5 SV, 2.5 SL and 3.5 SR grades feature a standard 5.0-inch color audio display, which is used for a number of tasks including viewing images from the RearView Monitor and accessing the standard NissanConnect with Mobile Apps system (except Altima 2.5 base).

The NissanConnect with Mobile Apps system allows Altima owners to stay connected to their digital lives, even when in the vehicle. Apps include Online Search powered by Google™ (navigation equipped vehicles only), Facebook and others, along with the flexibility to introduce new apps throughout the ownership experience.

The NissanConnect Mobile Apps experience isn't limited to a single individual within the vehicle. Other drivers and passengers can set up their own app suite to tailor their experience when they are in the vehicle. All app profiles and settings are personalized and unique to each user's phone.

Along with the 5.0-inch color audio display, the system includes a USB port with iPod® connectivity. Also standard on all models (except 2.5) is Siri™ Eyes Free, which allows a hands-free voice connection to Siri™ commands.

Standard on Altima 3.5 SL and optional on 2.5 SV and 2.5 SL is NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps. The system is packed with a rich range of features and is easy to use with its 7.0-inch touch-screen, 3D-effect map views, Nissan Voice Recognition, and turn-by-turn navigation. Other navigation features include speed limit display, eco driving maps, curve warning and split-screen display. It also includes SiriusXM® Traffic and SiriusXM® Travel Link™ (fuel prices, movie times, stock updates, weather) (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately).

Optionally available on Altima 2.5 SL and 3.5 SL is the new NissanConnect Services Powered by SiriusXM®, with automatic collision notification, remote start via smartphone, emergency call, stolen vehicle locator and dealer service scheduling and maintenance alerts (subscription required, sold separately).
