2022 Nissan Altima review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2022 Nissan Altima?

The five-seat Altima is Nissan’s mid-size sedan. It comes in five trim levels: S, SV, SR, SL and the range-topping Platinum. The base engine is a 188-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder; a unique variable-compression turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 236 hp (or 248 hp with premium gas) is available. Both engines work with a continuously variable automatic transmission. 

Sedans with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder can have front- or all-wheel drive, but the SR trim with the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder is front-drive only. The Altima competes with the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata

What’s New on the 2022 Nissan Altima?

A new Midnight Edition Package for the SR trim with the 2.5-liter engine features gloss-black 19-inch alloy wheels, a gloss-black grille, a gloss-black spoiler, special badges, LED foglights, heated front seats and a moonroof. 

What Features in the 2022 Nissan Altima Are Most Important?

  • Fabric upholstery
  • 60/40-split, folding backseat
  • Push-button start
  • Remote start 
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Forward collision warning 
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane departure warning

Should I Buy the 2022 Nissan Altima? 

The Altima is a good value and offers a lot of safety tech. Available all-wheel drive is a plus, and it also has good EPA-estimated gas mileage. There are, however, several shortcomings in the cabin, including small seat cushions, inconsistent materials and a lack of storage space. The lack of standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is also disappointing.
