Nissan Altimaís zero-gravity front seat design essentially eliminates pressure points that can induce body fatigue. But seat contentment isnít the sole source of appreciation. During a week-long test drive, front and rear seat riders had high praise for the interiorís spaciousness. For individuals who only associate roominess with an SUV, this midsize sedan supplies ample legroom (nearly 44 inches for front bucket seat occupants and more than 35 inches for occupants in the 60/40 split rear seat) as well as storage space (15.4 cubic feet in the trunk).
Nissan Altima is physically unchanged from its 2023 refreshening. Whatís new for 2024 is a longer trial period for NissanConnect Services. The system that provides remote vehicle access to certain features now includes a three-year trial versus the prior 6-month trial. The 2024 Nissan Altima with intelligent all wheel drive is powered by a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder pumping out 182 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 178 torque at 3600 rpm. Altima is also offered with a 2.0-liter variable compression turbo 4-cylinder that provides 248 horsepower and 273 torque. Engines mate to an Xtronic continuously variable transmission. The week-long tested Altima carries a base MSRP of $33,930 and collects mpg of 26 city and 36 highway.
