The 2023 Nissan Altima has a redesigned sharp front and a larger touchscreen.
2023 Nissan Altima – Overview
The Nissan Altima gets a stylish redesign for 2023, thanks to some nipping and tucking.
Here are the major highlights:
- The 2023 Nissan Altima has a new front appearance, wheel styles, and paint choices.
- A larger 12.3-inch touchscreen with better graphics and wireless Apple CarPlay is now available on the Altima.
- Nissan also adds to the sedan’s basic active safety systems.
The V-motion grille, which also displays Nissan’s new emblem, has been updated for the family sedan’s front end.
The 2023 Altima boosts its feature and technological options in addition to the cosmetic upgrades.
The rest of the lineup gets new standard LED headlights, with turn signals and daytime running lights sharing space.
Gray Sky Pearl and Garnett Pearl metallic are added to the car’s color pallet.
A stylish set of 15-spoke 19-inch rollers featured on the Altima SR seen above is one of the four new wheel options, ranging in size from 17 to 19 inches.
Except for the revised finish surrounding the gauge cluster and the new dual-stitch fabric designated for the SR trim, the 2023 Altima appears the same on the inside.
A larger 12.3-inch touchscreen has also been added to the mix (an 8.0-inch unit is still standing).
The larger screen appears to deliver a nicer interface with better graphics and the addition of wireless Apple CarPlay; Android Auto still requires a wired connection.
The improved infotainment system is optional on the SV model and standard on the SL and SR with the turbocharged engine.
ProPilot Assist, Nissan’s driver-assistance system, is still standard on the SL and is optional on the SR and SV variants.
However, previously optional active safety measures are now standard on the bottom half of the Altima lineup.
Automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, rear automated emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-departure warning are among the features on the list.
There are no powertrain changes for the 2023 Nissan Altima.
The standard engine is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder with 188 horsepower and front- or all-wheel drive.
The 248-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with variable compression ratio (VC-Turbo) is still the more powerful choice, but it’s only available in front-wheel-drive SR variants.
A continuously variable automatic transmission is used by both engines (CVT).
Nissan has yet to disclose pricing for the 2023 Altima, but we expect it to happen before the revamped sedan goes on sale this fall.
The pricing range for the 2022 lineup was $25,925 for the base S model to $35,625 for the top-of-the-line trim, so we don’t expect a substantial increase for the new model year.
