Nissan Altima Trim Levels
The 2017 Nissan Altima Trim Levels come in five main varieties: the Base, the S-level, the SR and SV levels and the top-end SL trim. The SR and SL trim also include sub-levels, which are distinguished by either a 2.5L four-cylinder engine or a 3.5L V6.
The base level Altima comes with 16-inch steel rims, keyless entry and push-button start, power accessories, six-way adjustable driver’s seat, air conditioning, 60/40 split-fold back seats, Bluetooth for both phone and audio, and a sound system delivering four speakers and a CD player. Also included at this level is the Nissan Easy-Fill Tire Alert system, which allows you to monitor and adjust tire air pressure as necessary.
The S-Level steps up the options, adding cruise control, automatic headlights, keyless ignition, voice commands via Siri Eyes Free, and a rearview camera. It also kicks up the sound system to add a 5-inch display screen, a USB port, and smartphone app integration via NissanConnect.
SR Trim Level
At this level you get larger 18-inch alloy rims, fog lights, daytime running lights, sport suspension and sport seats, paddle sifters, and a power adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support. The sporty look is accented by a rear spoiler.
The SV level builds on the S-level and gives you 17-inch alloy wheels, a power-driver seat, remote start, automatic dual-zone climate control, satellite radio tuner, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.
The top-of-the-line SL trim level adds to the SV a heated steering wheel and front seats, rear air vents, leather upholstery, a power adjust front passenger seat, dual adjustable headrests in the front, ambient lighting inside, and upgraded nine-speaker Bose ausio system.
Going to the 3.5 SL in addition to the bigger engine, gives you paddle shifters, LED headlights, parking sensors, bigger touchscreen interface at 7 inches, voice commands, and Google connected navigation system.
Many of the above features can be added individually to lower levels as options, and extra features include a sunroof, auto-dim and heated mirrors, adaptive cruise control, enhanced telematics systems, upgraded NissanConnect features, and forward collision warning, and mitigation features.
