2016 Nissan Altima



 THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is how a mid-cycle refresh is done. And done right.
The difference between the 2015 and 2016 models is obvious.
And it seems that it actually didn't require more new parts than the lame Passat refresh.
(hood, bumper, lights etc...)

Even inside, (2016 model above), they changed a few things. The console is new.
Mileage gets even better at 29HWY.
Seems like there is some new tech inside, but no Apple Car Play. (too bad)

So of course, once again, the Altima looks very much like the Maxima.
Which, again, might not be the best for the Maxima...

It seems that Nissan is always having trouble convincing people to by the Maxima since the Altima is pretty much the same size car. They really need to rethink things a bit...

Great looking car, they did a good job. Now if only they could find a way to get rid of the CVT.....

They could convince more people to by the Maxima if it was actually different from the cheaper Altima. The last all new version of the car should have switched to the same platform as the Q50 sedan, to actually follow through on the "4-door sports-car" tag line they are pitching but few will catch.

How many of you guys have driven an altima and maxima back to back. It's not the same car. Maxima looks way nicer and handles way better.

Weird fitment between lights and chrome pieces, front and rear.. the SE might turn out to be quite a looker if those items are blacked out.
