Once you’ve sifted through many of the questions that resulted in choosing the 2015 Nissan Altima, there are still factors to consider; namely, which trim level best fits your needs? In looking at the 2015 Nissan Altima 2.5 S, 2.5 SV and 2.5 SL, drivers are offered standard and optional features that distinguish one from another, resulting in a vehicle that can be easily customized to suit a driver’s lifestyle.
All three excellent trim levels receive the same standard powertrain--a 2.5L four-cylinder engine paired with the Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)--while the SL trim carries the option of a 3.5L V6 as well. Each also features Nissan’s standard safety suite, which includes Vehicle Dynamic Control, Traction control, Antilock brakes with electronic brake distribution and a full allotment of airbags. Each also features the Nissan Intelligent Key, Bluetooth Hands-free phone and audio and Nissan’s popular NASA-inspired Zero Gravity front seats.
It’s when we bump up to the available SV and SL trims, however, where the Altima’s sophistication truly takes hold.
