A Closer Look at the 2022 Nissan Altima

2022 Nissan Altima

The new 2022 Nissan Altima is here. It is a car that gives you surprising versatility in a spacious fuel-efficient Sedan. With intelligent all-wheel drive, you will always be ready for snow, rain, and other tough weather. To add on, it has SUV light flexibility rounded up with cool technology and a premium interior. The new Altima is installed with a lot of stuff built in to help you enjoy your drive.

Overview of the 2022 Nissan Altima

Altima portrays an overall athletic look that looks better in person than in photos. The car’s front end has had massive changes from the sixth-generation model. It has angular and huge intake grills at the front with sleek meaner headlights. The LEDs on the front give the car an impressive look. Per TopSpeed, Altima weighs around 3207 pounds. It is 192.9 inches long and 72.9 inches wide. It also has a ground clearance of 5.1 inches. Altima is the only car in the category of sedans with several cuts and creases on the exterior, which gives it an aerodynamic look. The wheels have a top-tier trim with a size that ranges from 16 inches to 19 inches. On the rear side, the LED rear lights have a classic Japanese style that gets sleeker towards the center. Altima has dual exhaust pipes, which are surrounded by a fake diffuser common in many German machines.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

According to Nissanofannuys, Nissan Altima features two engines. A 2.5-liter inline-four engine that is naturally aspirated giving 188 horsepower and 180 pounds on feet. The other engine is a 2.0-liter inline-four that gives 248 horsepower and 273 pounds on feet. The difference is the 2.0-liter engine is only found in the SR trim while the top-tier trim has the standard engine. Both engines have a continuous variable transmission which helps to save fuel consumption. The base engine runs the front wheels. The 2.0-liter engine does not have the AWD option, making the 2.5-liter engine struggle in lower revs because it is low-powered.

Pro Pilot Assist

If you want to make your commuting easier, the new pro pilot feature has got you covered. Pro pilot assist helps with the steering to help to keep your center and at a set distance in your lane. It can also help you to control highway traffic. All you need to do is rest your feet, and it will do the rest for you. Just push the button gear and add a little kick to your drive.

Auto-Hold Button

Getting stuck in traffic can be quite annoying, but don’t worry because the new Altima 2022 has got your back. Press the auto-hold button, and Altima will hold the brakes for you so that you can chill there. When it is time to move, just hit the accelerator, and the Altima automatically releases the brake for you.

Zero-Gravity Seats

If you are planning to go on a long drive, the new Altima has zero gravity front seats. They have been inspired by the astronaut’s long journey into space. The seats are ergonomic to ensure that you cover long drives without getting tired easily. They also save you from frequent back pains.

Charging ports and Google maps

Altima has USB-A and USB-C charging inputs to make sure you can charge your latest devices. It also has Apple Car play to help you access certain apps from your compatible iPhone right on display. You can also use a third-party navigation app for more traffic information.

Safety Features

Automated Emergency Braking- identifies when a possible collision is about to happen, and it automatically activates the brakes to stop the vehicle to avoid a collision. Lane-departure warning- it ensures that the driver stays within the designated traffic lane, and it is designed to alert the driver of any slight deviation. Works together with the Radar Cruise Control System to assist the driver in maintaining the car on the correct lane. Automatic high-beam headlights- designed to improve night vision for all drivers driving at night. The vehicle is fitted with a camera that can detect the light rays of other oncoming vehicles, and at the same time, it monitors the brightness of the street lights. Backup camera- also called reversing camera. It is used by drivers when reversing the car to avoid possible collisions which cannot be seen. It is connected to the head unit display for viewing. Driver attention warning- it alerts the driver to take a break if the system notes that the driver has reduced attention while at high speed. Rear seat warning- monitors the back door of the vehicle. The feature is activated to alert the driver when the rear doors are either opened or closed within 10 minutes before the car starts the engine. It also alerts the driver when the rear door is opened while the vehicle is moving.

How safe is the 2022 Nissan Altima?

The 2022 Nissan Altima has a Top Safety Pick with a 5-star rating. Both NHTSA and IIHS have approved the car. It has a huge list of standard driver assistance features.

Should I buy the 2022 Nissan Altima?

Absolutely yes! Altima has a mixed bag of good and weird features, but it is generally a good car. Its pros are it looks attractive, has impressive fuel consumption, and excellent power delivery. The interior is spacious with huge front legroom. It also has adequate driver assist features. On the downside, the lack of AWD, which has a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and a mid-trim, is a limitation that makes it a good car only for those who have started driving. If you are looking for a car with an overall good experience and future proof, Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata are better choices. The above cars are also in competition with Altima.


It’s no doubt that the 2022 Nissan Altima is an impressive budget Sedan. It has an attractive price tag of $ 25,500, which makes it a good value car.
