An attractive package in more ways than one

It’s not so long ago that midsize sedans occupied one of the most popular and fiercely competitive segments of the auto market and the 2022 Nissan Altima is a good reminder of why that was the case. The Altima can confidently turn its hand to a variety of different applications and styles, and the availability of all-wheel-drive makes the Nissan stand out from most other sedans you’ll come across on the roads of Gainesville, Buford, Cumming, and Duluth.

Trim levels and styling

Part of the reason why the 2022 Nissan Altima can fulfill a variety of different roles is that it’s available in six different trim levels, three of which are available with AWD and one gets AWD as part of its standard equipment. The entry-level version of the 2022 Altima is the S, and from there the range goes to the SV, SR, SL, SR VC-Turbo, and finally to the top-of-the-range Altima Platinum. Front-wheel drive is standard for every trim level, apart from the Platinum, which is standard AWD. The SV, SR, and SL trim levels all offer AWD as an option, but the sporty SR VC-Turbo is exclusively front-wheel-drive.

Powertrain and fuel economy

2022 Nissan Altima powertrain and fuel economy

The standard engine under the hood of the majority of Nissan Altima models at the moment is a 2.5-liter inline-four that comes mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that sends 188 horsepower and 182 lb.-ft. of torque to the front or all four wheels. If you’d like your Altima to have a more powerful engine at its disposal, there’s also a 2.0-liter turbo-four available with the SR VC-Turbo trim level. The turbo-four produces up to 273 horsepower and 267 lb.-ft. of torque which is sent to the front wheels of the SR VC-Turbo through that CVT transmission.

Front-drive versions of the Altima with the 2.5-liter engine get EPA fuel economy ratings of 27 mpg in the city, 37 mpg on the highway, and 31 mpg combined, and adding the extra capability of AWD changes those numbers slightly to 26/36/30 mpg. If you go for the SR VC-Turbo, the EPA says you can expect ratings of 25 mpg in the city, 34 mpg on the highway, and 29 mpg combined which is pretty impressive.

Features and equipment

The Altima is generously equipped in its standard form at every level and it particularly shines in the important areas of safety and infotainment. There’s so much standard safety kit that the Altima gets the coveted Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIIHS. Every model gets standard automatic emergency braking and most models from SV and higher even come with the likes of adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, active lane control, and rear automatic emergency braking.

Base Altima S models come with standard air conditioning, remote start, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, but if you want alloy wheels, you’ll need to look at the SV trim level or higher. Several Altima models also come with ProPilot Assist, which is Nissan’s version of driver assistance that operates in the background to keep the car’s distance from others vehicles on the highway.
