2017 Nissan Altima Performance Specs and Features

Drivers don’t need to look far for a car that combines impressive performance features, efficient fuel economy specs, and plenty of power: the new 2017 Nissan Altima performance offers all of that. Available now at Scott Evans Nissan, the Altima offers the choice of two engines, multiple transmissions, and convenient paddle shifters.

Performance Features in the Altima


The Nissan Altima offers drivers a choice between two state-of-the-art engines: a 2.5L 4-Cylinder that generates 179 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque and a 3.5L V6 engine that churns out as much as 270 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque.

Xtronic CVT Transmission

While drivers who prefer the old-school manual still have that option, this Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission features step shifting, wider gear ratio coverage, and an adaptive shift controller.


Nissan lets drivers enjoy performance without the sting of a gas guzzling engine, with 2017 Altima models earning as much as 39 highway mpg on the four-cylinder and up to 32 highway mpg on the V6.

Paddle Shifters with Manual Mode

Drivers who want the convenience of an automatic transmission without sacrificing the control of a manual have a healthy compromise in the available paddle shifters, making it possible for you to activate a manual mode for a rawer driving experience.
