Nissan Altima Interior Dimensions
With 40 inches of headroom and 45 inches of legroom in the front seats, the new Altima is an ideal choice for very tall drivers-or anyone else who wants comfort behind the wheel. The front seats were designed to mimic the weightless posture of astronauts in space. They provide plenty of support where you need it and can help reduce fatigue on long drives.
In the rear, you’ll find 37.1 inches of headroom and 36.1 inches of legroom, making it a cozy place for kids and many adults to sit in comfort alike. The 60/40 split-folding rear seats help expand on the cargo capacity of the trunk (15.2 cubic feet) and give you more room to store longer items.
Advanced Nissan Technology Features
The Nissan Altima has made a few changes to its array of high-tech features in 2018. To start, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning plus Automatic Emergency Braking is now standard, helping you mitigate or avoid oncoming frontal crashes with alerts and brake assist. Also, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are now available, so your music, maps, and messages can be easily accessed, hands-free.
Drivers near Addison and Plano are no strangers to the fact that Texas has a very hot climate for much of the year. Still, that won’t be a problem when you’re driving, if you opt for the available Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control. This system lets you and your front passenger set temperatures for your own sides of the cabin.
