When purchasing a car, many consumers don't consider the safety equipment and crash scores. Instead, they focus most heavily on the exterior color and what gadgets are featured. But, when consumers learn the crash scores of the 2016 Nissan Altima and compare them to other vehicles, they will realize just how much safety scores matter! The 2016 Nissan Altima boasts top scores in government crash testing, as well as by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Testing areas range from overall crash protection to roof strength and safety in rear impacts.
While the 2016 Altima comes equipped with all of the basic safety equipment – antilock brakes, stability and traction control, airbags throughout – it also boasts many safety features that consumers will greatly enjoy. Items range from blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert to forward-collision warning and mitigation systems with automatic braking. There is also the NissanConnect services system, which includes automatic collision notification, emergency assistance and stolen vehicle locating services.

In a segment that runs high in comfort and space, the 2016 Altima has nothing to fear. The front seats are a consumer favorite with the NASA-inspired “Zero gravity” design that comforts and supports in all the right places. Head- and legroom both provide enough space for the average adult, and passengers in the back will be happy that the seat cushion is elevated in order to provide better visibility. There's plenty of storage for personal items inside the Altima, and while trunk space is average, it's loved by most due to its low and wide opening, which makes for easy loading and unloading.
When it comes to the lineup of the 2016 Altima, just remember the number five. Five passengers. Five trims. An interesting thing about the Altima's lineup is that each trim contains a “2.5” or “3.5” in front of its name. These numbers differentiate which engine each trim is equipped with. Those with a 2.5 house the 2.5-liter four-cylinder, while those with the 3.5 come with the 3.5-liter V6. Engine choice depends on the consumer, but the V6 is the favorite among most due to its peppier power and acceleration.
The 2.5 SL and 3.5 SL are two Altima trims that stand as favorites among consumers. Both feature upscale content, like leather upholstery, heated front seats, rear air vents and nine-speaker sound system. But while consumers are typically drawn to the 3.5 engine, they also like the extra bonus' offered by the 3.5 SL. It gains LED headlights, shift paddles, front and rear parking sensors, seven-inch touchscreen, voice commands and navigation system with Google connectivity.
