Long Island City Nissan Altima | New York Used Cars
The Nissan Altima has evolved over the last two decades from a smaller car into the mature family sedan driven all over NY today. Altima’s personality exudes a bit of fun, although its popularity resides more in style, quality and impressive feature characteristics. Altima was originally debuted in the early 90’s, and has become progressively more upscale in look and feel. The Long Island City Nissan Altima is a top pick in its class year after year, and is always a solid choice for your family – whether for commuting or carpooling.
The latter generations of Altima enjoy redesigned engineering inside and out. Improved fuel economy is evident in the four-cylinder and V6 models; enhanced suspension and steering systems solidify the Altima’s position as one of the better handling cars in its class. There are seven trim levels to choose from, either sedan or coupe; and each is designated as either 2.5 or 3.5 depending on which engine powers the vehicle. Those equipped with the 3.5 V6 are understandably more peppy and sporty, with easy acceleration and finely tuned suspension offering 270 horsepower. The base 2.5-liter four-cylinder provides a satisfying driving experience, producing 175 horsepower. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) is the best of its kind, strong in passing situations and supporting high EPA fuel economy ratings. With the four-cylinder engine and the CVT, the latter generation Altimas have a 31 mpg combined rating, a solid offering among midsize sedans.
The Bay Shore Altima historically has delivered responsive handling and a self-assured ride. These characteristics are evident in later models as well. A comfortable interior, intuitive technology, quality materials and desirable features have always been a part of the Altima’s DNA. The interior can be equipped with upscale features such as a hard-drive-based navigation system, music storage, Bluetooth streaming audio, leather wrapped steering wheel with audio controls and a rearview camera. Gauges and controls are easy to use and simple. These and other high-end options are bundled together in a number of different packages depending on vehicle. If equipped with the Special Edition package, you’ll find alloy wheels, automatic headlights, fog lights and a rear spoiler. Sedan models generally offer a competently capable cargo space of 15.3 cubic feet.
