After the recent redesign, we are pretty sure that the 2022 Nissan Altima will continue in the same way, without important changes. The popular mid-size sedan is now in the sixth generation and continues to compete with legends like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.

The second production year will bring the same design characteristics, which make this car well-rounded, strong in all aspects. It is a car that offers plenty of comforts, good driving dynamics, efficient engine and much more. Considering that we won’t see any important change, the 2022 Nissan Altima will hit the market sometime in the second half of the year.

Pros

  • Class-leading front seats
  • Spacious cabin
  • Good handling
  • Great fuel economy

Cons

  • Some rivals feel more upscale on the inside
  • Some rivals are more agile

Exterior

In terms of the exterior design, the 2022 Nissan Altima will definitely come without a single change, if we exclude potential new color options. The recent redesign has brought a lot of novelties, starting from a new version of the familiar D platform, a couple of inches in wheelbase and overall length and much more.

Of course, there is a new styling, which makes this sedan look far more attractive. It is based on the brand’s newest design language, characterized by the upgraded version of the company’s famous V-motion grille. The overall shape is sleeker, while experts say it also features better aerodynamics.

Interior

The interior of the 2022 Nissan Altima is also about to remain pretty much the same. This sedan comes with a pretty spacious cabin, very generous in terms of legroom. Of course, you can count on the famous Zero Gravity front seats, which are considered to be best in the class. Rears seats are comfortable and supportive as well.

The cargo area is pretty much average for the class, though. When it comes to the overall cabin quality, it is very good. Still, some rivals like the Accord and Camry feature more upscale cabins, with finer materials and much more style. On the other side, a list of standard features is pretty long and even most basic versions feature all the latest tech goodies.

Engine

Under the hood, the new Altima came with important changes. A V6 engine has been dropped, so you can count on two four-cylinder units for the next year. Base models will be equipped with a familiar 2.5-liter engine that delivers around 188 horsepower.

This engine also features pretty amazing mpg ratings, which go around 28 in the city and 39 on the highway. If you prefer more power, an optional 2.0-liter turbo-four seems like a good choice. It delivers around 248 horsepower.

2020 Nissan Altima Release Date and Price

The 2022 Nissan Altima will represent the second production year of the sixth generation, so we don’t expect to see it before the last quarter of the year. Base models will go around $24,000.
