If you are waiting for the arrival of the 2017 Nissan Altima, wait no more. It has arrived at dealers across USA and Nissan has set its pricing.
As you may or may not know, 2017 Altima is available in seven trim levels – 2.5, 2.5 S, 2.5 SR, 2.5 SV, 2.5 SL, 3.5 SR and 3.5 SL. Its starting price is set to $23,335 MSRP, and that is with included handling and destination fees ($835). If we take a look at the sale results and interest of the buyers we can see that about 30% of sales is consistent out of the sporty SR model.
If you were not following the news about it, 2017 Altima engines remained unchanged meaning 2.5 L four cylinder with 182 HP and 3.5 L V6 with 270 HP are coming. Both of these units is attached to Nissan’s CVT transmission called Xtronic.
Nissan made bold predictions that its 2.5 L engine can hold up its own with 39 MPG on the highway, which means that it will stay a class leader. They also increased the list of safety features available in the new Altima like Predictive Forward Collision Warning, radar-based Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and new and Intelligent Cruise Control.
Entry level 2.5 L trim is the one with the least equipment, meaning it does not get the seven-inch display infotainment unit, NissanConnect with navigation and NissanConnect services. This, of course, reflects on the starting price where 2017 Nissan Altima SR with 2.5-liter unit starts from $25,305 MSRP with destination and handling fees, while the same trim level but with 3.5 L V6 is going to cost you $28,825.
