The fifth-generation Nissan Altima has received loads of acclaim for its all-around value, in addition to being larger than previous generations while being lighter. The 2017 model year is part of this production cycle, and it immediately follows a major refresh of the vehicle. For 2017, the Altima is available in seven variants, of which the 3.5 SL represents the car at its feature-rich peak.


Designed as a midsize four-door sedan, the 2017 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL has a passenger volume of 100.5 cubic feet for up to five adult occupants. The trunk yields 15.4 cubic feet of volume, with the option of bending down the rear seats to expand luggage space into the vehicle. You have a choice between beige and charcoal leather seat covering; accentuating the cabin are Brushed Silver Wave trim with the former or Carbon Wave trim with the latter. Front seating in particular consists of an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat with 2-way power lumbar support and a 4-way power adjustable passenger seat. Other standard comfort and convenience features include cruise control, illuminated steering wheel-mounted controls, a rearview camera, a navigation system with a 7-inch color touchscreen, voice command ability for audio and navigation, hands-free text messaging, Bluetooth® for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, dual-zone automatic temperature control, HomeLink® for remote-controlling home features like garage doors and security systems, remote keyless entry, push-button engine start, remote vehicle start, smart key system, and auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 5-inch Advanced Drive-Assist® Display for vehicle information (in addition to the instrument cluster), and heating capability on the front seats and leather-wrapped steering wheel. Entertainment is provided by a nine-speaker Bose® audio system, which displays audio information on the aforementioned 7-inch screen. Included with the Bose® system is a three-month SiriusXM® satellite radio subscription and a CD player that can play MP3 and WMA files.


The 2017 3.5 SL rides on 18-inch aluminum wheels. The projector-type halogen headlights incorporates LED daytime running lights that automatically turn on or off to adjust to the amount of sunlight. Also, since the headlights are aligned with the ignition key, they automatically turn off when you finish driving. Also included on the front fascia of the Altima are dual fog lights to penetrate fog or extreme darkness. On the top of the vehicle is a power sliding glass moonroof with one-touch open/close and tilt capability. On the doors are manual-folding heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators.

The 2017 Altima 3.5 SL has a four-wheel independent suspension, which consists of a front MacPherson strut design and a rear multi-link design. Accompanying the suspension are ZF Sachs shock absorbers for prime absorption of the turbulence caused by uneven or bumpy road surfaces. Electronic hydraulic power-assisted steering is not only notable for its effectiveness in handling, but also for conserving energy, since it does not rely on the engine for power. Sharpening the steering system’s job is Active Understeer Control, which applies braking power to the inside wheels when making turns when it senses understeer or oversteer.


The workhorse on the 2017 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL is the VQ35DE. A 3.5-liter V6 engine, the VQ35DE provides 260 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and 240 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 RPM. Hitched to the engine is a continuously variable transmission, which does not use gear shifting, but rather an infinite number of possible gear ratios. The result is silkier driving and better gas mileage. However, the transmission comes with paddle shifters and a manual shift mode for simulating a gear shifting driving feel. The engine leads to dual chrome exhaust finishers, which indicate boosted performance and efficiency.


For safety in the event of a crash, the 2017 Altima 3.5 SL comes with a pair of front occupant-facing impact airbags, a pair of side impact airbags mounted on the front seats, and dual side curtain airbags. Also on the 3.5 SL are electronic stability control to maintain control of driving direction, traction control to combat skidding caused by slippery surfaces, a front and rear sonar system for parking assistance with the rearview camera, and hill start assist to avoid rolling backwards when shifting from Park to Drive on a hill. The four-wheel disc brakes ensure a quick efficient response when pressing the brake pedal. Accompanying the disc brakes are ABS to prevent wheel lock-up when coming to a stop and electronic brake-force distribution for equal allocation of stopping power to the wheels. Blind spot warning with rear cross traffic alert keep you aware of other vehicles that you otherwise might not be able to see or detect. Ready to try out the 2017 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL for yourself?
