The History And Evolution Of Nissan Altima

1.
Nissan Altima (1993 - 1997) 
 The first iteration of the Altima appeared in the 1993 model year and continued until 1997. It was meant to be a successor to the Stanza, and in fact, it actually came initially with the Stanza and Altima emblem.

At that time, the Altima's engine delivered 150 horsepower, which was quite a powerful power for the time. Even today, 150 horsepower is really solid for any sedan. In addition, although the technology has not been extended until recently, the Altima in 1993 and

1994 was available with a front display.

Nissan Altima (1998 - 2001) 
The second generation of the Altima worked only between 1998 and 2001. Since this was at a time when the airbags began to be used in all areas and were included in all vehicles, it was a big problem when the side airbags were available for vehicle Standard leather seats were also available on all GLE models.

This second generation model was unique to the market. During this second generation, there was still a cassette player, although it also played CD.

Nissan Altima (2002 - 2006) 

With its large V6 and sports suspension, the Nissan Altima has suddenly developed into a sporty alternative to Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. The Altima was completely redesigned for 2002 and offers a dramatic new design. More importantly, it's bigger in every dimension. The only thing the 2002 Altima shares with its predecessor is its name. The Altima was slightly smaller than the Accord and the Camry, but larger and more expensive than the popular Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic, also it came only with a four-cylinder engine. Obviously, everything has changed. This year marks the first time that Altima has offered a V6 option. It's the same 3.5-liter engine that powers the 2002 Maxima, and it's one of the best V6 engines available today.

Nissan Altima (2007- 2012) 


The Altima is initially available as five models: 2.5, 2.5S, 2.5SL, 3.5SE and 3.5SL. The first three use a newly revised version of the 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine with 175 hp, the other two a new generation of the proven 3.5-liter V6 with now 270 hp. There will also be an Altima hybrid in early 2007. Two transmissions are available, the standard six-speed manual transmission or the continuously variable transmission. Standard equipment includes cloth seats, 16-inch steel wheels, halogen headlights, electric power steering, vehicle information display and a smart key with push button start. For 2007, the Nissan Altima has been completely redesigned.

Nissan Altima (2013- 2018) 


Although the Altima grows a bit, but maintains its selection of four- and six-cylinder engines, which is increasingly rare in the middle class as the competition to convert turbocharged engines to increase fuel consumption. Nissan renounced the option of a manual transmission in the sedan, instead went a continuously variable transmission (CVT) on the board. In this way, the Altimas achieved with the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder 182 hp and on the highway still 38 MPG - a class that is best suited for gasoline engines. A 3.5-liter V6 remains an option that delivers 270 hp and promises up to 31 MPG on the highway. In contrast to the previous Altima sedan is offered neither a hybrid, nor a clean diesel option.
Overall, the Altima remains one of the more conservative options for mid-sized sedan customers, but aims to attract customers with the available, bold V6 engine and leading-edge fuel efficiency of the four-cylinder.

Nissan Altima (2019 - Present) 

The new exterior shape of the Nissan Altima brings an enlarged interior, which has been designed with a lower bonnet for a more open feel. The Altima receives two new engines and a four-wheel drive, which distinguishes it from the bestsellers in the segment.

The standard engine is a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 188 hp and a torque of 180 pound-feet. This setup reaches an EPA-estimated 28 miles per gallon city, 39 mpg highway and 32 combined with front-wheel drive.

Also new and more powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is a technological milestone for the automotive industry as it incorporates a mechanical system that adapts the cylinder's compression ratio to performance requirements. In general, it helps the engine to achieve a higher level of efficiency and performance.
