2022 Nissan Altima Parked


The Nissan Altima is back yet again, and for model year 2022, the Altima is at its best yet! This is a vehicle that is perfect for the economically minded driver, coming in at a respectable $24,750 MSRP*. However, when you see what the Nissan Altima reviews have to say, you’ll see a vehicle that covers all angles for the convenience and comfort-focused driver in Gardena. Read on and get some facts on the Nissan Altima reliability, functionality, and more from your Nissan finance team, Nissan of Torrance.



Nissan Altima Review: Performance

The Nissan Altima is a vehicle that’s built for daily driving, but even a utilitarian vehicle needs to perform under pressure. Thankfully, in the Nissan Altima reviews, the critics mention several positives when it comes to performance.

MotorTrend has this to say: “The 2022 Altima’s base engine is a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated inline four-cylinder that comes in two states of tune, a 188-hp version for FWD models and a 182-hp version for AWD models. There is also a 236-hp 2.0-liter variable compression ratio turbocharged inline-four that’s available on the Altima SR FWD only. All Altimas get a CVT.

The Altima S FWD with the 2.5-liter inline-four gets the best fuel economy of the model lineup: 28/39 mpg city/highway. It’s rated as well as the 2021 Toyota Camry FWD with its 2.5-liter naturally aspirated inline-four and much better than the 2021 Kia K5 FWD with its 2.5-liter turbo-four. The Kia is rated at 24/32 mpg.”

Kelley Blue Book, on the other hand, has thoughts on the Altima performance technology: “Active Ride Control can make subtle adjustments through braking and power attenuation to optimize ride comfort, and lessen the effect of those washboard road surfaces. Intelligent Trace Control can apply subtle braking to individual wheels to help the car steer around corners. It’s what might be called brake-based torque vectoring in other cars.”

Nissan Altima Review: Interior

Nissan is known for intelligently engineering vehicles that deliver on both comfort and style. This is certainly the case for Carson and Compton drivers who pick the Altima. When it comes to the interior and driver comfort, here’s the 4-1-1:

Car and Driver praises the function of this vehicle when evaluating the Nissan Altima interior: “Inside, the Altima’s cabin provides a straightforward dashboard with user-friendly switchgear. Interior materials vary among trim levels, but everything is a significant improvement compared with the previous-generation Altima.”

Nissan Altima Review: Safety Features

How about safety? The Nissan Altima reviews note that the Altima safety system is as advanced as it is responsive.

Car and Driver notes that the Nissan Altima covers all angles when it comes to safety: “While every Altima has forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking, SV versions and up have standard blind-spot monitoring, high-beam assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and more. Nissan also offers a semi-autonomous drive mode called ProPilot Assist.”
