The 2022 Nissan Altima offers an average amount of trunk space at 15.9 cubic feet, with adequate legroom for backseat passengers with a 35.2-inch clearance. The back seats of the sedan offer a 60/40 split for you to fold down either a section or the whole part of the backrest to expand the cargo room and accommodate longer items. This sedan offers fuel-efficient mpg averages and the option to have front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. As most sedans are used for city driving, the option to have an all-wheel-drive drivetrain sets it apart from other mid-size cars.

The all-wheel-drive option is standard for the Platinum trim and available as an option for the SV, SR, SR Midnight Edition, and SL trims. All trim levels, except for the new SR VC-Turbo trim, run on the same 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine which provides 188 horsepower with 180lb-ft of torque for the all-wheel-drive option and 182 horsepower with 180lb-ft of torque for the all-wheel-drive option. The front-wheel-drive versions have an mpg of 28 in the city and 39 on the highway, while the all-wheel-drive versions have an mpg of 25 in the city and 35 on the highway.

These trim levels provide the same engine experience, allowing you to go from 0 to 60mph within approximately 7.4 seconds. The SR VC-Turbo, with its 2-liter 4-cylinder engine, offers a faster 0 to 60mph speed time at approximately 5.8 seconds. This trim provides 248 horsepower with 273lb-ft of torque that's controllable with paddle shifters to upshift or downshift the transmission as you drive. These paddle shifters are also available on the SR trim level.


All trims come with standard safety features, such as keyless entry, push-button start, automatic headlights, high beam assist, rearview cameras, pedestrian detection, automatic braking, lane detection, and driver attention monitoring. The base S trim comes with 16-inch wheels, the SV and SL come with 17-inch wheels, and the SR, SR Midnight Edition, SR VC-Turbo, and Platinum trims come with 19-inch wheels. While other trims have a standard 6-speaker sound system, the SL and Platinum trims feature 9-speaker Bose sound systems, along with leather seats, dual-zone climate control, and back seat air vents.

The 2022 Nissan Altima is available in the standard Nissan exterior colors, including Super Black, Gun Metallic, Brilliant Silver Metallic, and Glacier White. Additional exterior color options, such as Pearl White TriCoat or Scarlet Ember Tintcoat, are available at an extra cost as they require more coats and pigments to achieve their finish. The standard interior upholstery options for the Altima include Gray Cloth or Charcoal Cloth, while the Charcoal Sport Cloth is available for the SR trim. Gray Leather and Charcoal Leather are available for the higher trims.

The SR Midnight Edition comes with black accent features that aren't available on other trims and extra accessory options. This edition features black rear spoilers, black side view mirrors, and other features which are typically chrome to provide a dark, sleek, and sporty look. Along with these aesthetic details, the SR Midnight Edition trim comes with heated front seats, a heated steering wheel and heated side view mirrors with integrated LED turn signals.


The 2022 Nissan lineup introduces two new trim levels for the Altima, which are the SR Midnight Edition and the SR VC-Turbo.
