2016 Nissan Altima SR

The new SR trim is for the Altima buyer who wants a sportier ride and appearance to their car without spending a fortune on all of the luxury bells and whistles. You can get this trim with the 4-cylinder or V6 engine. It includes 18-inch wheels and a bit of a different look thanks to things like the smoked headlights and rear spoiler. Inside there are paddle shifters for the Xtronic transmission, as well as leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and blue contrast stitching on the power-adjustable seats.

2016 Nissan Altima SV

The SV trim represents a great value because it gets you some of the more desirable options while still having a really attractive price. It’s only available with the four-cylinder engine, which is a great blend of spirited performance and high fuel economy. In addition to new safety features like blind spot warning and rear cross traffic alert, the SV has the convenience of dual-zone automatic temperature control and remote engine start with intelligent climate control.

2016 Nissan Altima SL

Customers who want all the options should go straight for the Altima SL. The 2.5 SL comes with heated leather seats, a Bose Premium Audio system, heated auto-dimming mirrors, a HomeLink transceiver and much more. If you opt for the V6, there’s an 18-inch wheel upgrade and power sliding glass moonroof as well as too many standard features to list. We’ll try though: NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps, 7-inch display, voice recognition, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, heated steering wheel, rear air conditioning vents, premium interior, front and rear sonar sensors and much more.
