The New Nissan Altima in Calgary
You’ll find dynamic performance with the athletic 270hp 3.5-liter V6 engine. The exceptional suspension helps improve handling and keeps you in contact with the pavement even under hard cornering. On the interior, you’ll find a ton of modern amenities including available Dual Zone Automatic Climate Control, heated front seats, and Push Button Ignition.
Economy and Performance
The new Altima’s standard 4-cylinder engine pushes a healthy 182 horsepower and incorporates a new intake system to give you smooth power at any engine speed. Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) reduces friction by up to 40% while offering an optimal gear ratio at all times. These factors contribute to the 4-cylinder’s class-leading fuel efficiency of 6.0L/100km on the highway. And the 270hp V6 engine gets even better fuel economy than before with a cool 7.4L/100km on the highway thanks to its advanced Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVVTCS).
Exterior and Handling
The new Nissan Altima’s exterior redesign is evident thanks to it’s new powerful stance and bold styling features in the front. Retaining the same wheelbase as the previous models, the new Altima has a 36mm-wider front and rear track and deeper fenders to add to the bold and sophisticated exterior. You’ll notice that the long, sloped roofline not only serves as an aesthetic touch, but also provides improved aerodynamics and economy. Because of the sporty 4-wheel independent suspension, the Altima is as agile as it looks. Features like the class-exclusive Active Understeer Control contribute to refined and responsive handling.
