Used Nissan Altima - Available in Surrey
In a car market increasingly centred around SUVs, the Nissan Altima sedan offers a welcome change. But apart from its format, what else does it offer to discerning used car buyers? Here are the highlights you can expect from a pre-owned Nissan Altima from Basant Motors.
Why Choose the Altima?
With a history stretching all the way back to 1994, there's a huge number of used Altima models on the market. From its early days as a mid-range sedan to the more modern models packed with power and features, the long history means there's an Altima to suit every need and budget.
Although the Altima has been developed and refined over the last 25 years, the basic format remains the same: a commuter-friendly sedan offering high levels of comfort, excellent fuel economy, and a level of performance that won't leave you wishing for more. The Altima is also known for its impressive reliability, a particularly important point when buying a pre-owned model that might not still be covered by the manufacturer's warranty.
The Altima range is centred around the sedan format, but many model years also have a coupe version available. Combine the coupe with one of the many sports trims featured from year to year, and you'll get a surprisingly sleek and streamlined car. However, even the base sedan model looks great, with the later models especially having a dramatic front end and a tapered, swept-back profile.
The Altima is firmly positioned as a commuter car offering great fuel economy. Later models use a 2.5L four-cylinder gas design which makes a highly respectable 188 horsepower and 180lb-ft of torque, more than enough for confident and comfortable daily driving. But if you're looking for a little more juice, find a model with a 2.0L turbo engine making up to 250 horsepower for a much livelier ride.
As you'd expect, older pre-owned Altima models have little in the way of advanced infotainment systems. However, newer releases are well equipped, with features including an 8" touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and satellite radio.
The range of safety features also varies greatly down the years, but look for newer cars fitted with the Safety Shield 360 package and you'll find advanced systems including lane departure warnings, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and more.
All these highlights add up to make the used Altima an excellent buy, with a wide range of models available to provide the right set of features at the right price
