First introduced as a 1993 model, the Nissan Altima was billed as all-new for 2013. With a combination of innovative mechanical components, carefully tuned ride and handling, advanced cockpit connectivity features and sleekly contemporary styling that belies its price class, the fifth-generation Altima feels like it’s a class above its mid-size segment while providing comfortable, efficient family transport.
For the 2015 model year, a Technology Package (including NissanConnect) replaces the previous Navigation Package, available for 2.5 SV and 3.5 SV models. A new Sport Value Package for 2.5 S models includes 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels, remote engine start, and a trunk-lid spoiler. A new Display Audio Package for 2.5 S and 3.5 S includes a 5-inch color display, rearview monitor, USB port, and NissanConnect. (For the 2.5 S, that package also includes SiriusXM satellite radio.) Front-seat visors are now illuminated, with extensions, on 2.5 S, 2.5 SV and 3.5 S trim levels.
Chrome exhaust finishers have been added to the 2.5 grade for 2015. Nissan’s available navigation system has added smartphone integration for iPhone and Android, SiriusXM Travel Link, and SiriusXM Weather.
