First Drive: 2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL
hello there, hello as well as welcome to Basicville! You want your green tea latte iced or hot? Because if you’re going to be basic, you might as well do right. Accentually when the idea comes to choosing midsize sedan for your family, the idea’s kind of hard not to be essential when there can be a sea of grim possibilities to choose by … how can we make the Nissan Altima refreshed stand out by the others? We can not! the idea does not mean we will not try though.
Since its launch in 2013 a completely new car by a full, introduced in April a completely new couple design schemes for those queuing with Murano attract as well as concept into reality Maxima . at in which point the idea’s time for the rest of the fleet to catch up, as well as therefore we have a 2016 Altima. Along with some headlights, taillights, as well as some – the biggest news to hit the Altima completely new minor cosmetic enhancements can be a mathematical SR trim, which can be not our test seen here (if we use emoticons eye rolling, we . ) Real offers mathematical proportions as well as surface steroids when considering the automobile coming. the idea can be available on both the 2.5 as well as 3.5-liter engine
In fact, we have can be the 2.5-liter SL trim – the idea’s the highest trim can be available on four-cylinder engine as well as starts at $ 28.570. So why do you ask to choose 182-horsepower 2.5-liter over the more powerful 270 V-6 horsepower 3.5-liter? We believe in which the highway 39 mpg have may be something to do with the idea …
If mpg can be what you’re after then you’ll have to make do with the drone of the CVT transmission also concludes rpm’s pass 60 mph in less than 8 seconds. however before doing so, you have to hurt fuel economy. at in which point 39 mpg can be a very bold claim due to in which size of car, as well as we were curious if in which was actually the case – we decided to set out in a 800-mile journey to see if the idea can seriously be reached 39 mpg. at in which point our journey was interesting about such a review, so if you’re actually curious about our trip you can read all about the idea in where we go.
the truth can be though to get in which kind of a large number seems almost impossible In initially we prove ourselves wrong – however as inclined achieved as well as roads have changed, the numbers began to fluctuate. At the end of our trip, we were able to bring out the 34 mpg instead of the Environmental Protection Agency classified 39 still can be not bad for a car 3300lb. however we are still able to achieve a high rating miles per gallon such, we were able to pull the 0 miles by one tank to normal – the fuel in which many of the leadership
2.5 L’s chosen means you do not. Looking a lot about the terms of the dynamics of sports leadership. Mundane drive as well as seem – as well as there can be nothing wrong with in which. the idea delivers what you expect by a midsize sedan – a luxury ride, steering uncommunicative as well as enough Centeng roll to give the kiddos stomach sick on twisty mountain road. Even with appeared to have 17-inch wheels as well as here, was comfortable as well as quiet ride – kept the road noise to a minimum, as well as they give a neat appearance against our optioned $ 395 paint pearl white
coloration mix can be great. Deal when choosing a car – can some outdoor colors Inner surface compensate well. however when you have a white car as well as mix the idea with the Inner surface cream … in which can be not just a contradiction in which can be what can be attractive to any party. Especially when in April introduced some completely new interiors 2016 – like in which interesting wood – the idea just does not work. at in which point in which does not mean the Altima can be not a fun place to be – even for a means of marketing gimmick, as well as the seats lack of reasonable gravity – Provides the rear seats a lot of leg room – as well as tons of standard equipment are features such as push- button start, automatic climate control system, heated seats, monitor the blind spot as well as premium BOSE audio system.
technology, as well as to bring the Altima more industry standards – from the $ 1,700 technology packages adds in adaptive Cruise Control with braking antonymous forward collision alert as well as collision system as well as a 7-inch touch screen functions of the smartphone.
from the basic scientist, Altima still proves to be a worthy competitor semi. After a few different options, the idea brings to our lab a little more than $ 32.500. We still prefer the means smooth comfort of 3.5 L V-6 in in which cost – however here from the real world, where MPG can be more appreciated than performance – the idea can be difficult to compete with the Altima numbers
