We do expect that the 2015 Nissan Altima will bring updated styling and new hybrid model. This mid-size sedan will certainly come as a quite attractive offer for many potential buyers that are looking for a new car in this segment. We could hear many positive reactions about changes that will be implemented here and we are sure that sales will again remain at pretty high level.
Have in mind that those changes will not be drastically and that only minor improvements will be offered. On the front we will notice restyled grille plus slightly different headlights, bumper and fog lights. On the back we have changes for the tail while the look from side does not show any major modification. Base line of the car remains the same and again we have the elegant yet aggressive looks. Since there will be seven different trims plus a hybrid version it is possible for every buyer to choose the best for their needs. Wheels that are offered come in sizes from 16 to 19 inches while higher trim levels will come with LED turn signals on side mirrors and LED taillights.
When it comes to engine lineup we can say that the 2015 Nissan Altima offers a lot for everyone. Base option is the 2.4 liter I4 naturally aspirated unit that produces 182 hp while the more powerful option is the 3.5 liter V6 with impressive 270 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. This certainly would be enough for most drivers. For those fuel efficiency oriented drivers Nissan has prepared the hybrid model which combines the 2.5 liter supercharged engine with electric motor that is supplied from modern Li-Ion battery pack. Total power output of this version should be at least 218 hp and 210 lb-ft of torque but reports suggest that this number could go significantly higher.
2015 Nissan Altima Specs
One of the things we are eagerly awaiting to hear about hybrid is the power of electric motor. In some reports we could hear it will bring 15 kw but other suggest that it will be much more powerful and that it will be able to drive this car for a few miles in electric mode only. If this is offered than it could be a lot more interesting to many drivers than any other option.
Interior of any car in mid-size sedan segment is quite important so every car maker devotes a lot of attention to this. Upgrades are visible everywhere and the 2015 Nissan Altima will bring higher quality materials in combination with soft touch materials. On the center console we have display that will give us most important details about fuel economy, range and infotainment system of the car. Among those standard features we have things like USB iPod connectivity, smartphone integration, climate control, seven inch display and much more. Optionally you can take leather upholstery, eight way power seat, lumbar support for driver, dual zone climate controls, remote engine start, keyless entry, keyless start, heated front seats, moon roof and much more.
Safety is as always on highest level and there are no mistakes in this segment when it comes to 2015 Nissan Altima. Options as blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning system and similar are standard on all trims. Things like ABS, ESP and plenty of airbags will certainly be interesting to many drivers and we know that this is one of the most important segments for buyers of new vehicles.
Price Of 2015 Nissan Altima

Sales should begin in the next few months and the base price of this model will be about $22,300 and depending on the equipment, trim level and engine option it will go significantly higher and easily top $30,000.
