Nissan Altima Interior

Styling

This is s sleek car for the price. Styled to look like a Camry, it costs far less than the average mid-size sedan for the cost. It feels like a luxury sedan on a mid-size budget. It is a classic sedan for sure. There is no hint of sport or rugged looks. Instead, the interior is sleek and well designed so you can store the things that you need in your car. The gauges are easy to see and read at any angle of seat adjustment. The end result of this look is one that offers a luxurious look in a well-designed interior.

The exterior of this sedan is sleek as well. While it is not an eye-catching sedan, it is classic and gets the job done. It is aerodynamic for the efficient fuel consumption along with the engine that makes this practically a hybrid on a mid-size sedan budget. The look this year is bolder and makes a statement with the large grille that offers the style that makes it look great on the road. This statement makes the car more stable on turns as well. That means that the look is more than just attractive. It is actually attractively useful. You can get this car as a coupe as well if you like that sporty look.

Safety

The safety for this 2011 Nissan Altima is based on the review of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. They ranked the Nissan Altima as “Excellent” in safety. It also ranks an additional four out of five rank by the Federal Government. These are very impressive results. That is why so many people with families choose a mid-size sedan. They are well known for their reliability and their safety on the road. The 2011 Nissan Altima ranks very high this time because it allows the passengers and driver to have impact air bags that are built into the seat. This adds more safety in any impact because the air bag is custom placed when it is attached to the seat in this manner. No matter how tall or small you are your seat will protect you in an impact.

It also offers an engine immobilizer that prevents the car from going further in any impact. This helps in a couple of ways. The first is an impact that involves the car being hit on the road. Many times a car will continue to travel further after an impact because there is nobody driving the car and the engine is still in gear where it was at the time of impact. When you have engine immobilization, you greatly help prevent further injuries that offer from this phenomenon. The second way the car protects the driver and passengers through engine immobilization is when a person is thrown in the way of the car. Rather than dragging the individual and causing further harm, the engine stops at impact and thus helps protect the person as much as possible.

Conclusion

The 2011 Nissan Altima is one sturdy and safe choice. Any family or individual would be making an excellent choice for reliability and ease of maintenance. Additionally, they can expect to have a high re-sale value because of these things. That along with optional choices that make the 2011 Nissan Altima a luxury sedan on a mid-size price tag, an excellent choice for today.
