The Altima, part of Nissan's lineup since 1993, is a midsize sedan with seating up to 5. Having more than average horsepower for its class, the Altima packs some oomph. Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. The Altima has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it bypasses mud and snow with ease. Nissan offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.
We estimate that the 2021 Nissan Altima has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0542% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 6.186%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0542% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 6.186% chance of being injured.
Compared to the average vehicle, the 2021 Nissan Altima is 16% more likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2021 Nissan Altima is 7% more likely to result in a fatal accident.
Active safety features with Nissan's Safety Shield 360 can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. An active safety system that is standard on the 2021 Nissan Altima is Automatic Emergency Braking w/ Pedestrian Detection. Some safety features are optional on the 2021 Nissan Altima--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Warning.
Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.
