2017 Nissan Altima Trim Level Engine Power

When it comes to power, the Nissan Altima offers two versatile options. The 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, available with the 2.5, 2.5 S, 2.5 SR, SR Midnight Edition, 2.5 SV, and 2.5 SL trims, can produce 179 horsepower with 177 lb-ft of torque while achieving an EPA-estimated 27/39 city/highway MPG.* The 2.5 SR and SR Midnight Edition get 26/37 city/highway MPG, according to EPA estimates.

The 3.5L V6 engine, available with the Nissan Altima 3.5 SR and 3.5 SL, boosts the vehicle's abilities to 270 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque. This engine gets an EPA-estimated 22/32 city/highway MPG. All the Nissan Altima trims are paired with the Xtronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) which provides smooth and effective transitions in speed while boosting fuel efficiency. 

Interior Comforts

Each Nissan Altima trim level offers a spacious 101.9-cubic-foot cabin for the five passengers it can carry. However, the 2.5 SV, 2.5 SL, and 3.5 SL each offer a moonroof, which brings the interior space down to 100.5 cubic feet. The 2.5, 2.5 SL, and 2.5 SV feature cloth seating.

All the Nissan Altima trim levels feature an AM/FM radio and a CD player. The 2.5 trim features a 4-speaker sound system. The 2.5 S, 2.5 SR, SR Midnight Edition, 2.5 SV, and 3.5 SR all feature a 6-speaker sound system. The 2.5 SL and 3.5 SL are both equipped with the Bose® Premium Audio 9-speaker sound system to deliver high-quality audio.

The Nissan Altima 2.5 S up to the SV all feature a 5-inch audio display screen. When you upgrade to the 2.5 SL or 3.5 SL, you get the 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen, which provides a quick response when selecting your media.
