MUSCAT: The Nissan Altima, which breaks new ground for the mid-size sedan segment is hands-down the most engaging vehicle in its class.
And if you’ve never driven an Altima before, get ready to have your notion of a mid-size sedan redefined.
Nissan has taken one of their most successful model, the Nissan Altima – kept its DNA and changed nearly everything – the visual appeal, the driving experience and, of course, the technology. Nissan Altima offers numerous segment defining attributes that enhance the ownership experience and provide real customer value.
In addition to its many other functions, the Advanced Drive-Assist Display can be linked to three new available safety features – Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Moving Object Detection (MOD) – typically offered only on more upscale vehicle and first time in the segment.
Thanks to the use of the systems’ advanced next-generation rear view camera, the BSW, LDW and MOD are integrated and intuitive.
Remote engine starter in Mid and Top Grades : Nissan vehicles are known to offer smoother ride comfort, more refinement and benchmark fit and finish, while delivering breathtaking performance and road-holding. Their ‘multi-dimensional performance’ means the driver can enjoy the full depth of a Nissan’s capabilities whether navigating the corners of a winding mountain road, cruising on a motorway or even travelling in an urban environment.
The 2015 Altima comes with the Nissan Intelligent Key that allows the owners to drive in comfort and style regardless of the rising temperatures of the sultanate. The Nissan Intelligent Key allows drivers with a tap of a button on the door handle or trunk to unlock them, while the keys stay inside a pocket or purse. Drivers can start a car from up to 60m away with the Remote Engine Start System. This convenient solution lets drivers cool down the vehicle before it’s time to get in, provided they set the climate control functions when they step out.
With vehicles facing the brunt of the scorching heat nowadays; drivers are faced with extreme driving conditions. By using the remote engine starter, drivers can get the car engine running and activate the cooling before they step inside. That gives them the opportunity to stay indoors in the cool until the car is ready to drive. This can be particularly handy if drivers have young children and babies, or anyone else that is very sensitive to extreme temperatures.
Standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System: smart technologies are designed to help monitor conditions like a warning to let the driver know about straying lane, or a system that helps ensure they are travelling on properly inflated tires.
Standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Easy-Fill Tire Alert lets drivers know when a tire is low and the Easy-Fill Tire Alert takes the guess work out of filling tires with a beep of the horn when they have reached the correct pressure.
The Altima 2.5 SL Grade comes with NissanConnectSM. This uses hands-free technology, smartphone, and Nissan’s display screen to help customers stay in touch with the outside world from inside their vehicle. It is loaded with features and compatibility with a growing list of apps that lets you play your music, keep tabs on your social network, and navigate any city like a local. Other features include sunroof, blind spot warning, moving object detection, lane departure warning, paddle shifter, 8-way power driver seat and two way lumbar support, LED Type tail lamp, xenon projector headlamps, leather seats and premium trim console and door.
Reverse Sensor (flush type): a seamless sensor designed at the rear bumper of the vehicle makes the Altima look sleek.
In addition to its many other functions, the Advanced Drive-Assist Display can be linked to three new available safety features – Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Moving Object Detection (MOD).
