Nissan intelligent all-wheel drive keeps you safer on the road with automatic distribution of power to the wheels that need it, providing optimal traction and responsiveness that the Accord cannot. Here are the Altima engine options available to you and their relevant performance specifications: 

Nissan Altima 2.5L 4-Cylinder

  • 180 lb-ft of torque
  • 28/39/32 EPA-estimated city/highway/combined MPG

  • 273 lb-ft of torque
  • 25/34/29 EPA-estimated city/highway/combined MPG

Nissan vs. Honda: Safety Suites

Comparing the Nissan vs. Honda safety suites that equip either the Altima or Accord with innovative driver-assistive features, you get a more comprehensive suite with the Altima thanks to Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies. Nissan Safety Shield® 360 utilizes cameras, radar technology and sonar to be your extra eyes on the road, looking to the front, side, and behind you on Valdosta roads. The six-feature bundle includes: 

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
