EPA- Estimated MPG
The 2017 Nissan Altima carries over with no major changes for the new model year. Like the 2016 edition, it offers a compelling mix of power and efficiency, with 270 horses from its optional V6 or up to 39 mpg highway with a properly equipped 2.5 model. Class-exclusive technologies like Predictive Forward Collision Warning also set Altima apart from its competitors, as does its new sportier look, which was just updated last year during a design refresh.
