Spy photographers have caught the new 2016 Nissan Altima testing on the streets of Detroit, sporting styling cues that were introduced with the 2015 Murano and 2016 Maxima models.
The most notable revision for the 2016 Nissan Altima is the front end design that is inspired by the “V-Motion” design language Nissan has been introducing across its lineup. On the inside, expect the new Altima to receive numerous upgrades, including the upgraded infotainment system found in the new Maxima. And like the 2016 Nissan Maxima, the Japanese automaker will likely reduce option packages and include more features on various trim levels to make the Altima more enticing to shoppers.
What won’t significantly change with the 2016 Nissan Altima is its powerplants, though the company will revise the CVT to improve performance and efficiency. The refreshed Altima should be revealed this summer with sales beginning in the U.S. this fall.
