The 2017 Nissan Altima Sedan is a four-door car that's available in eight reliable trims. The base edition carries a starting price tag of $22,500. All of the models that wear the 2.5 badge are priced significantly less than $30,000. Even the stylish SR Midnight Edition falls into such a price range. As the most luxurious edition in the Altima's extensive lineup, the 3.5 SL costs over $32,000.
The classic 2.5 L QR25DE L engine is standard in the first six trims of the 2017 Nissan Altima Sedan. This four-cylinder engine produces 179 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. The 3.5 SR and 3.5 SL run on the traditional 3.5 L VQ35DE V6 that's rated at 270 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are connected to variable induction systems. As expected of a mid-size sedan, the Altima rolls on a conventional front-wheel drive (FWD) that offers quick acceleration.
Finding the proper gear in the Altima should be simple with the Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) that offers the Manual Shift Mode. Paddle shifters can be used to quickly adjust the gear ratios without the touching the shift lever. The chassis of this relatively lightweight sedan sits on the ZF Sachs shock absorbers and stabilizer bars. With some leverage from the electronic hydraulic power-assisted steering and Active Understeer Control, the driver can confidently handle tough road conditions.
When equipped with the 2.5 L engine, the 2017 Nissan Altima Sedan gets a fuel economy of 39 MPG on the highway. This rating is comparable to that of some hybrid cars on the American marketplace. The 2.5 L engine also offers a city fuel economy of 27 MPG. Since it's much more powerful, the 3.5 L V6 engine naturally sacrifices some efficiency. This powertrain is rated at 32 MPG on the highway and 22 MPG in urban settings. The active front grille shutters create a noticeable reduction in drag for this versatile Nissan sedan.
The Altima's 7-inch infotainment system comes with the NissanConenct software. SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Pandora Internet Radio and iHeartRadio are included in the premium Bose audio system. GPS navigation with live traffic feeds by SiriusXM is also available in the multimedia system. Integrated into the instrument cluster, the signature Advanced Drive-Assist Display delivers some data from the NissanConnect platform and the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with Easy-Fill Tire Alert.
The Intelligent Safety Shield protects the 2017 Nissan Altima Sedan against crashes. Front collisions are unlikely to occur when the Predictive Forward Collision Warning and Forward Emergency Braking turn on. Some other accident-mitigation features in this car include the Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which are powered by radar sensors.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Nissan Altima
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Nissan Altima invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Nissan Altima MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
