Head to Head Against Competitors, 2017 Nissan Altima Evinces Value to Go the Extra Mile

May 18th, 2017 by

In a market replete with mid-size sedans, there are more than a few reasons to own a 2017 Nissan Altima. And they’re in addition to industry accolades like those of Edmunds.com, rating Altima at a laudable 4.8 out of 5, or Motor Trend, which weighed in with a 4 out of 5 rating. Even vehicle research and valuation expert Kelley Blue Book gives the sedan a 8.1 out of 10, following global consumer authority U.S. News & World Report, which assigned an overall 8.3.

But it’s 2017 Nissan Altima which gets the last word, in its own right and as it stands against the competition. The sedan’s powerhouse V6 engine option shells out 270 horsepower, surpassing the 260 horsepower offered by 2017 Toyota Camry XSE as well as the 245 horsepower under the hood of 2017 Hyundai Sonata Sport 2.0t. And this, in tandem with excellent fuel economy – 2017 Altima offers up to 39 mpg on the highway, lapping the 36 mpg possible with the CVT-equipped 2017 Honda Accord LX, 2017 Hyundai Sonata SE, and the 33 mpg evinced by 2017 Toyota Camry LE.

And when it comes to front headroom and legroom, 2017 Nissan Altima excels, providing an expansive 40 inches and 45 inches respectively. The CVT-equipped 2017 Honda Accord LX lags behind in drive-time comfort, making a showing of just 39.1 inches and 42.5 inches respectively, as does 2017 Toyota Camry LE, with 38.8 and 41.6 respective inches, each model without a moonroof offering.

But it’s perhaps 2017 Altima’s Predictive Forward Collision Warning, available in the SL trim when equipped with Nissan’s tech package, which seals the deal on Nissan’s pull into victory lane against its rivals. This system’s radar sensors monitor the distance and velocity of vehicles in front of you while you drive, helping you stay a step ahead of potential perils on the road. Such a system doesn’t come available in the comparable 2017 Honda Accord LX, 2017 Hyundai Sonata SE, or 2017 Toyota Camry LE. And with safety chops like these, it’s no wonder 2017 Nissan Altima earns an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ when equipped with available forward emergency braking and LED low-beam headlights.
