The Nissan Altima is a perennial first choice for buyers looking for a “right-sized” sedan. The addition of optional all-wheel drive only improved an already excellent package. For 2023, Nissan is making substantial changes to the Altima that will help ensure its appeal to buyers.
2023 Nissan Altima Change One – Styling
The 2023 Nissan Altima will get a new look for 2023. The most obvious feature of the 2023 Altima’s new styling is a new front fascia, with an updated version of Nissan’s V-Motion grille. This new look offers a decidedly sporty design and Nissan displays the redesigned brand logo. The popular SR trim gets a special “black chrome” grille finish as well as a new grille design that sets it apart from other grades. Other key exterior elements include the now standard LED headlights, turn signals integrated into the daytime running lights, the expressive and identifiable taillight design and the available single-pane sunroof.
Inside, a revised dash and new double-stitched interior fabric design for SR models moves the Altima upscale a bit. Gray Sky Pearl and Garnett Pearl Metallic colors join previously available exterior color options.
2023 Nissan Altima Change Two – Infotainment Improvements
Interior enhancements for the 2023 Nissan Altima include the additions of a new 12.3-inch HD color display with multi-touch control, Nissan’s Door-to-Door Navigation System, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay wireless, wireless phone charger and Wi-Fi hotspot, all standard on Altima SL and SR VC-Turbo trims and available on SV.
A new 12.3-inch screen, the same size as that of the Nissan Armada premium full-size SUV, replaces the previous smaller 8.0-inch screen and offers higher resolution to deliver clear images and crisp graphics.
Nissan Altima 2023 Change Three – Extensive active safety systems
For the 2023 model year, the Altima continues to lead the way in its segment when it comes to safety. Nissan’s advanced ProPILOT Assist2 system is now standard on Altima SL and SR VC-Turbo and optional on SV.
The Nissan Altima is a sedan that Torque News happily reviewed and tested. Watch for the arrival of the 2023 Nissan Altima at your local dealership in early fall 2022.
