2017 ALTIMA PERFORMANCE
RECONNECT WITH YOUR LOVE OF DRIVING
Altima® SR puts you in the middle of the excitement. The specially tuned sport suspension begs you to push it through corners, while steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters keep you close to the action. If you love to drive, this is where you want to be.
A STUNNING LOOK LIGHTS THE WAY
Setting the Altima® SR apart even further, the specially designed smoked headlights let everyone know this vehicle takes style as seriously as it does performance.
PRESENTING A NEW SPIN ON THRILLS
Designed specifically for the SR, the 18" aluminum-alloy sport wheels not only keep the weight down for better performance, but show the competition this vehicle isn’t just talk.
The excitement of driving is always just a press of the accelerator away in Altima®. Whether you choose the potent, yet efficient, 179-hp, 4-cylinder engine or the legendary 270-hp V6 engine, you’ll get innovative engineering and maximum power delivery. Add in the performance-centric Altima® SR, and it’s clear—we take driving experience as seriously as performance numbers.
Choose the 179-hp 4-cylinder engine and get more than just spirited performance. Innovative engineering gives you smooth power while contributing to the impressive highway fuel economy. [*]
EFFICIENCY IS ON THE HORIZON
With Nissan’s Xtronic CVT® transmission, you have a virtually gearless road warrior. It can hold the engine at the ideal rpm for the job, providing a wave of power when you need it and running low rpm for quiet, efficient cruising when you don’t.
Nissan’s legendary 3.5-liter, 270-hp V6 engine treats you to sportscar-like performance and a cool 32 highway MPG [*] that keeps you right at home in the fast lane.
CORNER WITH PURPOSE. AND JOY.
Imagine if your car knew when you were cornering – and how to respond to your commands. That’s the kind of intuitive response we’ve engineered into every Altima®. So you can enter a corner with more confidence, and exit with a big grin.
STAY ON TRACK
Active Understeer Control reads the cornering situation and, if needed, brakes the appropriate wheel to help you steer through the turn. Handling is further enhanced by Altima®’s rear multi-link suspension, giving you the sensation of riding on rails.
