2022 Nissan Altima - Pre-Order in Katana
The Nissan Altima offers a breath of fresh air in a market that's groaning under the weight of endless SUV releases. Sticking solidly to a handsome sedan format, it's a car that perfectly balances performance, comfort, and economy to deliver a stylish drive under all conditions. We'll soon have the new 2022 Altima release available at our Katana Nissan dealership, and here's why we highly recommend pre-ordering this highly attractive vehicle.
Choice of Capable PowertrainsAt the entry level, the standard Altima powertrain is built around a healthy 2.5L four-cylinder gas engine which produces 188 horsepower for a confident level of performance. The output is passed through a continuously variable transmission (CVT), feeding your choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
But if you're looking for a little more punch under the hood, there's also a 2.0L turbo engine which cranks up the horsepower to 248 hp, with the extra ponies making a significant difference to both acceleration and straight-line speed.
Impressive Sedan Fuel EconomyAn undoubted strength of the sedan format is the impressive fuel economy that can be delivered without the extra bulk of an SUV. As you'd expect, the lower-powered engine offers the best figures, with a city rating of 8.4L / 100km and a highway figure of 6.0L. But even the turbo model is a lean performer, taking just 6.9L / 100km on the highway or 9.4L in the city.
Advanced Active SafetyThe 2021 Altima earned a full five stars in safety tests from the NHTSA, and this isn't expected to change with the 2022 release. The physical robustness of the model is backed up by some advanced active safety technology, with available highlights including:
- Lane departure warnings with lane keep assist.
- Automatic front and rear emergency braking.
- Blind spot monitoring.
- Adaptive cruise control with lane-centring ability.
