Nissan has just brought the Altima into the 2024 model year. The changes are modest, to say the least, and the car is now a bit more expensive across the range.
The lineup comprises the same trim levels, namely the S, SV, SR, and SL when it comes to the front-wheel drive models. The all-wheel drive range includes the SV, SR, and SL, and the SR VC-Turbo FWD continues to top them all. The MSRP varies from $25,730 to $35,430 before the $1,095 destination charge, meaning that Nissan has added $100 to each trim level over the previous model year. For the base all-wheel drive variant, namely the SV, interested parties are looking at $28,030.

As for the actual updates, buyers of the 2024 Nissan Altima will get a three-year trial for the NissanConnect Services, up from six months. The automaker says the telematics feature works with the dedicated smartphone app to allow users to remotely start and stop the engine, make emergency phone calls, lock and unlock the doors, access the car's health report, etc. The available tech gizmos include the 12.3-inch infotainment system with wireless smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a wireless charging pad, the brand's door-to-door navigation, and a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Drivers are assisted on the go by a host of safety features that are part of the Nissan Safety Shield 360. The bundle is standard on each version of the 2024 Altima, bringing stuff such as the blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, rear automatic braking, and high beam assist. The vehicle also supports semi-autonomous driving via the available ProPilot Assist, which makes the daily commute a bit more pleasant through stop-and-go traffic by mixing the intelligent cruise control and steering assist to control the throttle and brake automatically.

Power-wise, you are looking at the same two lumps. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit kicks out 188 hp (191 ps/140 kW) and 180 pound-feet (244 Nm) of torque, paired with a CVT that sends the thrust to the front wheels on the S, SV, SR, and SL. The all-wheel-drive versions of the SV, SR, and SL enjoy 182 hp (185 ps/136 kW) and 178 lb-ft (241 Nm). Those who want more oomph can order the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder lump rated at 248 hp (252 ps/185 kW) and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm), which is limited to the range-topping version named the SR VC-Turbo.

The 2024 updates on the Nissan Altima follow last year's mid-cycle refresh when the vehicle got a redesigned V-motion grille, as well as new standard LED headlights, two fresh exterior colors, new wheels, and some updates on the inside, like the 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system that was lifted from the Armada, replacing the old 8-inch unit.
