See the Dramatic 2016 Nissan Altima Facelift

Nissan AltimaMost mid-cycle refreshes are light updates to keep a model year from becoming passé before its next generation. However, the 2016 Altima is receiving one of the most dramatic makeovers ever seen in Nissan’s history. With better performance, new looks, improved safety features, and the best fuel economy in its class, the 2016 Nissan Altima facelift gives it an edge in the competitive midsize sedan market.

The Altima by itself is difficult to improve; the outgoing model is touted by Nissan as the only midsize sedan with five consecutive years of sales growth. The refreshed 2016 model, however, employs the use of Nissan’s new, more aerodynamic Energetic Flow design language, an aspect of its design that it shares with the new Murano and Maxima.

The Altima comes with a new grille, bumper, fenders, hood, headlamps, and a redesign front fascia that gives it a more muscular appearance. The technology features added include the NissanConnect infotainment system, which comes with a variety of audio and navigational features and options. In addition, the sedan will be offered in seven trim levels, including the sporty SR trim that comes with 18” wheels, a more rigid suspension, fog lamps, and a rear spoiler.

The 2016 Nissan Altima facelift gives the car a more sleek and dramatic appearance, keeping it stylish and packed with cutting-edge features in the face of competitors. Pricing has not yet been announced, but the new model is expected to be available sometime in November.

Nissan Murano Earns Spot on Ward’s 2015 10 Best Interiors List

Finding the perfect interior that combines luxury and comfort can be difficult—especially if you have a small budget. The all-new 2015 Nissan Murano does just that, though, and was recently recognized on Ward’s 2015 10 Best Interiors list for its beautifully designed cabin.

“First time I saw the new Murano interior, I was blown away by the pearlescent film that’s used to lovely effect on the doors, instrument panel, center console and armrest,” said Tom Murphy, executive editor, WardsAuto World. “The rest of the interior is brilliantly executed as well, from the smooth, flowing lines of the instrument panel to the ample cargo hold. Beige interiors often are perceived as boring, but this one is stylish and contemporary while achieving a serenity uncommon among midsize CUVs.”

Nissan offers the perfect combination of a modern design, premium materials, and innovative, practical technology within the third-generation crossover. The Murano’s features give it an entirely new level of refinement. NASA-inspired Zero Gravity front seating takes the Murano out of space, while the oversized Power Panoramic Moonroof allows the outside to come in, blending the Murano’s beautifully-designed cabin and the natural world.
