The Nissan Altima Delivers High-End Comfort and Style on a Budget

The midsize sedan market is a fairly contentious segment, and the Nissan Altima goes about ensuring its stronghold in the field through a smart well-rounded design that combines style and substance in a package that's hard to best. Familiarize yourself with the latest Nissan Altima model to hit our showroom floor and schedule a test drive at our Memphis, TN Nissan dealership near Collierville to find out which Altima best addresses your lifestyle needs and budgetary means.


The Nissan Altima offers two distinct powertrain options. Its base models come equipped with a 2.5-liter inline-four capable of making 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. With its 16.2-gallon fuel tank and impressive 39 mpg on the highway (in its most fuel-efficient form), the Sentra can easily achieve a driving range of over 600 miles. That's more than enough driving potential to handle commutes or extended road trips outside the Southaven area. The Sentra's Continuously Variable Transmission is largely to thank for these impressive performance qualities, however, if you're seeking additional "go-faster" qualities and bolstered dynamics, the Altima also offers an available 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine that makes 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. All-Wheel-Drive is available for additional grip in low-traction environments.

Exterior Design

The Nissan Altima has a tasteful exterior design that's refined, yet still sure to turn heads, especially when armed with available accessories and options found throughout the trim lineup. Up front, the Altima boasts a V-Motion grille with boomerang design accents along with a series of wheel options starting with a 17-inch machine-finished aluminum set and topping out with 19-inch wheels. LED headlights are available to enhance your sedan's aesthetic while also improving vision in low-light conditions. A total of nine varied color schemes also allow you to tailor your Nissan sedan a touch more to reflect your personal taste.

Interior Amenities

Thanks to its included Zero Gravity first-row seats, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and available plush leather upholstery, the Nissan Altima is one of the more comfortable models in its segment. A 15.4-cubic-foot trunk allows you to stow recreational items, groceries, and other items you might routinely tote around the Barlett, TN area. An interior grip also ensures you're able to close the trunk boot without getting your hands dusty when closing the trunk. Additional creature comforts include but aren't limited to:

  • Heated Front Seats
  • Power Sunroof
  • Heated Steering Wheel
  • Wood-Tone Interior Trim
  • Driver's Seat and Mirror Memory System

Infotainment & Safety Technology

The entry-level Nissan Altima model includes a bevy of tech highlights including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, two smartphone integration software systems that operate through the NissanConnect infotainment system and an eight-inch touchscreen. Bluetooth, satellite radio, and a helpful hands-free text-messaging assistant system are all also standard.

For greater confidence on the Memphis, TN roadways, we routinely encourage our patrons to consider the available Driver Assist Package. Or, simply upgrade to the Nissan SR model and you'll be able to enjoy a large number of the driver-assistance and collision-avoidance systems bundled in the Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite. This collection of tech includes features like:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • High Beam Assist
  • Lane Departure Warning
