The Altima, a mainstay of Nissan's lineup since 1993, is a midsize sedan with seating up to 5. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it bypasses mud and snow with ease. Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. The Nissan Altima has some real zest, surpassing typical horsepower for its class. Nissan offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

An active safety system that is standard on the 2022 Nissan Altima is Automatic Emergency Braking w/ Pedestrian Detection. Optional safety features on the 2022 Nissan Altima which we recommend include Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Warning.
Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. Side mirror turn signals are optional on the Nissan Altima. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.
