2020 Nissan Altima Preview: Safety Upgrades
The Nissan Altima was completely refreshed for the 2019 model year. That typically means that the 2020 model year is the same vehicle made in a different year, but it’s not the case. Nissan decided to revamp its standard safety features to make a more secure sedan for you and your family.
Take On The Competition: Compare the 2019 Nissan Altima to the Honda Accord
According to Cars Direct, the SR, SV, SL, and Platinum trims of the Nissan Altima will now come standard with the advanced Safety Shield 360 system. The features included under this name work together to effectively give you a digital copilot.
The advanced technology of Safety Shield 360 was first developed in the Nissan Intelligent Mobility project, the group at Nissan working to build self-driving cars. Included as part of the package are individual technologies like Blind Spot Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, and Lane Departure Warning. While it won’t drive the car for you, it will help you monitor the roadway and react quickly to changing conditions.
Need More Capability? Consider the Nissan truck lineup
If you’re considering buying a Nissan Altima S, the base trim, never fear. While the advanced safety technology isn’t standard on this version of the 2020 Altima, you can choose to add it on with the Driver Assist Package.
Nissan just released pricing details for the 2020 Nissan Altima, and it looks like prices have risen about $350 from the 2019 model year to accommodate this new change. When it comes to the safety of your family and passengers, a few extra dollars sure goes a long way.
