How Many People Does the Altima Seat?
Up to five people can sit in this Nissan. An eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and cloth upholstery come standard. Available upgrades include leather upholstery, sport seats, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel.
Adults have enough room to sit comfortably in both the front and back rows. The Altima’s seats are some of the most comfortable in the class.
Altima and Child Car Seats
There are two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors for the Altima’s rear outboard seats, as well as an upper tether anchor for the rear middle seat. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this system its top rating of Good for ease of use. The anchors are easy to find and can’t be confused with other hardware.
Altima Interior Quality
The Altima’s modern cabin has a sleek and clean design, though some critics noted that rivals have more upscale materials.
Altima Cargo Space
The Nissan Altima has a 15.4-cubic-foot trunk, which is about average for the midsize car class.
Altima Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation
The base Altima features the NissanConnect infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, two USB ports, a six-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, satellite radio, and Siri Eyes Free. Navigation is available, as are HD Radio and a nine-speaker premium Bose stereo.
The convenient touch screen and large physical controls help make the infotainment system user-friendly.
Altima Engine: From Good to Better
The Altima comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. The SR and Platinum trims can be had with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are paired with Nissan’s Xtronic continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
The base engine has more than enough power for everyday driving, and the turbocharged variant packs a little extra punch. The CVT operates smoothly and, unlike most CVTs, doesn’t cause the engine to drone.
Altima Ride and Handling: Comfort over Agility
This Nissan rides smoothly over most roads. It’s not as athletic as some rivals, but it tackles turns with confidence. The SR trim’s suspension is firmer and helps it feel a bit sportier than the rest of the lineup. Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is available.
Altima Crash Test Results
