2016 NISSAN ALTIMA: A major attraction at the Nissan exhibit during the Chicago Auto Show is sure to be the refreshed 2016 Altima mid-size four-door sedan.

The five 2.5-liter models feature a 182-horsepower 2.5-liter DOHC inline four-cylinder engine while the 3.5L Altima increased muscle comes via a 270-hp 3.5-liter DOHC V-6. All Altima models are front-wheel drive, and the engine is connected with the next-generation Xtronic continuously variable transmission for smooth and stepless ratio changes. While comparing cars at the Chicago show, notice how the '16 Altima shares the "gliding wing" design language with the Nissan Murano and Maxima. Within the cabin of the Altima, is advanced connectivity, revised soft touch materials, and advanced Zero Gravity front seats, which are standard on all trim levels. Every '16 Altima also offers a cutting-edge drive-assist 4.0-inch color display in the center of the instrument display between the tachometer and speedometer.

With the available hands-free text messaging assistant (part of NissanConnect with Mobile Apps), drivers can manage incoming text messages via voice control without taking their hands from the wheel or eyes off the road. A nicely tailored trunk provides up to15.4-cu. ft. of groceries or luggage space. The 2016 Altima is assembled in Smyrna, Tenn. and Canton, Miss., with engines assembled in Decherd, Tenn.
