The Nissan Altima, which is currently in its sixth generation, looks to be getting a facelift for its upcoming 2023 model year. From the look of recent spy shots circulating online, a mild redesign with a revised front end may be in the works. From what we've seen, the changes appear to affect the front end and may be moving to a more aggressive design for the grille, front bumper, and headlights.
The current 2022 model year Altima is a carryover, and the last update was an upgrade in safety features in 2020. The current Altima seats five pretty comfortably but lost some of its legroom moving into the current sixth-generation model. It retained its decent trunk space, though, with a capacity of 15.4 cubic feet.
No news has been rumored about performance changes, so the refresh may likely be available with the same engine choices that are available in the current carryover 2021 and 2022 models. This means the choice of a 188 horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine or a Turbocharged four-cylinder which makes 248 hp. Both pair with a CVT and available all-wheel drive.
The 2021 model year comes with a good safety rating earning five stars from NHTSA and a Top Safety Pick from IIHS and is equipped with a full suite of driver assistance tech. Base trim levels come with driver alertness monitoring, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and automatic high beams. Step up to a higher trim level and get the added features of blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and rear automatic braking. Surround-view cameras are currently only available on the top trim.
