Sure, sometimes life is about sacrifices, but it isn't with the 2016 Altima. You don't have to sacrifice performance for efficiency, and you don't have to sacrifice efficiency for performance. You can have both. Enjoy.
At Nissan, SR is the designation we give to our sporty, performance-inspired vehicles, and the Altima SR definitely fits the bill. Outside, smoked headlight housings, fog lights, a rear decklid spoiler, and 18" machined aluminum-alloy wheels give it an aggressive air. Inside, unique charcoal cloth seats and a leather steering wheel/shift knob combo add to the performance look. The SR is about a lot more than just looks though-it has an available manual mode with paddle shifters so you can really put that sport suspension through its paces.
The 2016 Altima features an upgraded suspension with new struts and springs to provide more responsive handling. The SR boasts a bespoke suspension tuning with larger stabilizer bars front and rear, and revised damper tuning to provide sporty handling.
