What is the 2023 Nissan Altima Price? 

As of this writing, the official 2023 Nissan Altima price has not been released yet. However, the average price of a vehicle in the Altima’s class is around $25,000, so you can expect the starting price of the newly redesigned Altima to fall somewhere around that mark. What we do know is that there will be five Altima configurations for the 2023 model year: the S, SV, SR, SL, and SR VC-Turbo. Each model can be configured with either FWD or AWD, which will also impact your 2023 Nissan Altima price. 

2023 Nissan Exterior Updates 

You’ll surely turn heads when you hit Memphis streets in the redesigned Nissan Altima. This latest model has a completely redesigned front end that gives the sedan a sportier feel. All of the new Altima trims come standard with LED headlights and daytime running lights, improving your visibility during nighttime rides. The SV trim is set to feature 17-inch wheels, while the remaining models will have 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels that feature a muti-spoke star design. What’s more, you can further customize your Altima with one of the two newly added exterior colors: Gray Sky Pearl and Garnett Pearl Metallic.

2023 Nissan Altima Interior Updates

In addition to the exciting exterior updates, the interior of the 2023 Nissan Altima also received a refresh. The Altima’s cabin will feature new finishes on the instrument panel and the SR models will sport a dual-stitch fabric design. Both you and your passengers can travel in optimal comfort with high-class available features like a NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seat design with dual-density foam and bolstering, leather-appointed seating, and an 8-way power driver’s seat.

As for technology, there’s no shortage of high-tech features that will keep you connected and entertained. If you opt for higher trims like the SL or the SR VC-Turbo, the following features come standard: 

  • 12.3-inch touchscreen display
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay® integration 
  • Wireless charging 
  • Wireless Android Auto compatibility 
  • NissanConnect® with Wi-Fi Hotspot

2023 Nissan Altima Performance Features 

The new Nissan Altima offers Cordova commuters an exciting driving experience. There are two engines options to choose from, and their specs are as follows:

  • 2.5L DOHC inline 4-cylinder direct injection engine that generates 188 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque on FWD models; 182 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque on AWD models. 
  • 2.0L Variable Compression (VC) Turbo engine that generates 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. 

The available VC-Turbo engine is the world’s first  Variable Compression Turbo engine*. What does this mean for how your Altima performs on Bartlett streets? Essentially, when you press on the gas, the engine’s piston moves to create a lower compression ratio. Once you’ve reached a steady speed, the engine will transform to a higher compression ratio, saving energy and creating a more fuel-efficient drive.

2023 Nissan Altima Safety Features 

If safety is your top priority in your next vehicle, you’ll be thoroughly impressed by the wide selection of safety features offered on the new 2023 Nissan Altima. The new Altima comes standard with Safety Shield 360–a suite of driver-assistive features that enhance your visibility, actively work to prevent collisions, and more: 

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection 
  • Rear Automatic Braking
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Blind Spot Warning
