One of the best parts of the new Altima is the standard features. Base Altima models get an eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, remote start, keyless ignition, four USB charge ports, and even automatic emergency braking. It’s not luxurious, but, at a starting price of $24,645, it's strong value.
For an even better bargain, look a bit further up the lineup. The Altima SV adds 17-inch wheels, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and remote start with climate control. Even better, the SV includes Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist suite, which can keep the Altima centered and adapt for following distance. That’s in addition to the standard safety technology, which includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, pedestrian detection, and automatic high beams. The system isn’t as capable as fully autonomous systems on luxury marques, but it’s a good way to mitigate fatigue.
