2022 Nissan Altima for Sale in West Springfield, MA
Trims and Powertrain
The 2022 Altima comes in seven trims: S, SV, SR, SR Midnight Edition, SR VC-Turbo, SL, and Platinum. The standard engine for all trims (except the SR VC-Turbo) is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine making 188 horsepower and 180 lb.-ft. of torque. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) manages the front-wheel-drive (FWD) setup or the available all-wheel-drive system (AWD). AWD is standard on the Platinum, but it’s not offered on the S or SR VC-Turbo trims. The SR VC-Turbo gets a variable-compression turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 248 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque.
The EPA has estimated fuel economy for most FWD trims (although not the SR, SR Midnight, and SR VC-Turbo) at 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. That changes to 27 city/37 highway for the SR and SR Midnight. The AWD-equipped SV and SL are rated for 26 city/36 highway, while the SR and Platinum with AWD are rated for 25 city/35 highway. The Altima SR VC-Turbo is officially estimated to get 25 mpg around town and 34 mpg on the highway.
The base S comes with automatic headlights, Nissan Intelligent Key with push-button ignition, a USB port, a 60/40-split folding rear seatback, and an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, voice recognition, and a six-speaker sound system. The S also gets a generous supply of active driving aids courtesy of the Nissan Safety Shield 360 package: intelligent forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, high beam assist, lane departure warning, and intelligent driver alertness. It’s eligible for the Driver Assist Package, too, which will add blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, a rear sonar system, and rear automatic braking.
The SV comes with the items listed in the Driver Assist Package, as well as LED headlights, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a 7-inch drive-assist display, an extra USB port, and two USB-C ports. Plus, its multimedia system steps up to an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Through the optional Premium Package, the SV will get dual chrome exhaust pipes, heated side mirrors with LED turn-signal indicators, a power-sliding moonroof, power lumbar support for the driver’s seat, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, an electronic parking brake, automatic brake hold, piano black interior trim, intelligent lane intervention, and ProPILOT Assist (Nissan’s intelligent adaptive cruise control system).
Several of the contents from the Premium Package are available for the SR, minus the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, which are both standard. The SR also appeals with its eye-catching black exterior elements, unique sport cloth upholstery, and carbon-fiber interior trim. Meanwhile, the Midnight Edition Package will add a certain mystique with its black badges, wheels, grille, and rear spoiler. This package also comes with some of the features from the Premium Package (the heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, moonroof, driver’s seat power lumbar adjustments, and heated front seats), plus LED fog lights; ProPILOT Assist and intelligent lane intervention are not available.
The SL is provided with all the goodies from the Premium Package, in addition to the LED fog lights. What’s more, it also has dual-zone automatic climate control, remote start with climate control settings, leather seats, a heated steering wheel, rich wood interior trim, traffic sign recognition, and a sweetened infotainment system with integrated navigation and a potent nine-speaker Bose audio system. The SL inherits ProPILOT Assist and intelligent lane intervention as well.
The range-topping Platinum is loaded with the works. It’s issued an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, interior accent lighting, and position memory for the driver’s seat and side mirrors. It also rounds out the Altima’s roster of safety aids with an intelligent around-view monitor, which gives drivers a total view of the vehicle’s surroundings for added convenience and peace of mind when they’re backing out of parking spaces.
