Fresh and Fun Nissan Altima Performance
Bring on the energy with the fresh, fun Nissan Altima performance! Proving once again why it’s one of America’s favorite mid-sized sedans, the Altima’s performance delivers a driving experience that combines all the best in engine power, efficiency, and handling on the road. At Jeffrey Nissan, we’re proud to show off an extensive selection of the popular Altima, and we’d love to have you take one out for a spin.
Robust Engine Power & Transmission
The 2017 Altima offers two engine options to choose from, and both supply a smooth, energetic performance. The 2.5L DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine purrs out 179 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque, while the 3.5L V6 engine amps up the power to 270 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque for the feel of a true sports car. Both engines are paired with Nissan’s Xtronic CVT® transmission, which provides seamless shifting that’s not only simple and efficient, it also results in improved fuel economy because of the way it delivers the power. The Xtronic CVT intelligently holds the engine’s rpm at the right level and makes adjustments for when you need to accelerate quickly or take it down a notch to cruise. Paddle shifters on the Altima SR take speed and control to the next level.
Responsive Suspension & Handling
The Altima is highly responsive and fun to drive, and that’s because it’s been engineered with a multitude of innovations. The finely-tuned independent strut front suspension and multi-link independent rear suspension, plus high-end ZF Sachs shock absorbers and stabilizer bars, work in concert to shield you from jarring bumps and surface changes. Electronic hydraulic power-assisted steering lets you drive decisively and with confidence. And, then there’s the Active Understeer Control feature, which uses its technology to actually read the situation when you’re cornering and brake individual wheels if necessary, giving you more control through the curve. The Altima SR model is equipped with a sport-tuned suspension that is uniquely designed for higher speeds and maximum power.
Efficient and Aerodynamic
The Altima’s competitive fuel efficiency is another reason to appreciate its level of performance. The 179-hp four-cylinder engine is exceptionally impressive, clocking in at an EPA-estimated 39 mpg highway and 27 mpg city. But there’s more to it than just the engine and drivetrain. The Altima has also been designed to be sleekly aerodynamic, from its exterior lines to the available Active Grille Shutters, which increase efficiency on the four-cylinder models by automatically closing when you drive at highway speeds to minimize wind resistance and drag.
