The Altima received a bolder-looking grille as well as redesigned headlights, hood and front fenders at one end and a revised trunk lid and taillights at the other end. The body structure was also strengthened around the roof pillars and additional sound deadening added. Continuing on is the Altima’s base 182-horsepower four-cylinder engine, while a 270-horsepower V-6 remains optional. Each is linked to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). On the safety front, all models come with “Active Understeer Control” that applies light braking pressure to the inside front wheel in a corner. This counteracts a vehicle’s natural tendency to continue in a straight line when the front wheels are turned. Also assisting the driver is Nissan’s Easy Fill Tire Alert that sounds the car’s horn when the correct tire inflation has been reached. As well, the Altima’s headlights automatically turn on after the wipers have completed four cycles, which helps other drivers see you during downpour conditions.
