A reworked Nissan Altima for 2023

Nissan unveiled a restyled version of the Altima for 2023.

The Nissan company has proceeded to officially unveil its redesigned Nissan Altima for 2023. Completely reworked for the 2019 model year, the brand’s representative in the mid-size niche was due for a slight refresh and that’s what this is all about.

The Nissan Altima, of course, retains its silhouette, but trades in its snout for a slightly more aggressive arrangement, Nissan unveiling only the SR livery for now, the sportiest-looking in the lineup. The “V-Motion” grille is still in place, but the designers have made some changes to the shape of the grill, as well as to the chrome strips, which in the case of this SR, adopt a “black chrome” coloring. LED headlights are now standard on all liveries (S, SR, SR Premium and Platinum).

The car will be available in seven colors: Glacier White, Deep Blue Pearl, Pearl white TriCoat (Premium), Scarlet Ember Tintcoat (Premium), Gun Metallic, Super Black and this Ethos Grey (Premium) which is added to the body color choices in 2023. The Altima also gets new wheel designs, including 19-inch wheels for the SR and Platinum versions. The sedan’s rear end remains unchanged, however.

Inside, the dashboard features a familiar design, but Nissan boasts new redesigned dashboard finishes and a new double-stitched fabric interior design for SR trims. The zero-gravity seats are still in place, but additional padding has reportedly been added, while leather is still available to dress up the upholstery. Also note that the driver’s seat comes standard with eight power adjustments as standard.

In the center of the dashboard, however, there’s a new 12.3-inch touchscreen (replacing the old eight-inch diagonal display) that’s compatible with wireless versions of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Nissan Door-to-Door Navigation System and a wireless smart device charger. The catch is that these upgrades are reserved for SR Premium and Platinum trims.

The Altima will also be available with a nine-speaker Bose premium audio system and the Amazon Alexa app, which is designed to make life easier for users.

And since we’re talking about making life easier for Altima owners, let’s also mention that the SR, SR Premium and Platinum trims also come with the brand’s standard ProPILOT assist system and 360-degree Shield technology.

Under the hood, one would have thought that the new turbocharged 3-cylinder engine bolted into the Rogue would be implemented, but it’s not. Only the naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine remains, still delivering 182 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque, all via a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and the brand’s intelligent all-wheel drive.

At the time of writing, Nissan Canada had not yet announced a release date for the new 2023 Altima, but it should be in the next few months, probably sometime after the summer season.
