The 2022 Nissan Altima has not yet reached the automaker’s website, but the sedan is in its infancy. After making a few changes in 2021 (mainly related to pruning and combination), Nissan made smaller changes to next year’s model. The highlight is the new Midnight Edition package available on the SR 2.5 interior. This adds dark decoration and styling, Bright black painted sports grille and spoiler, LED fog lights, black painted heated exterior mirrors with LED turn signals, exterior satin black midnight badges, and bright black painted 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels. Inside, there are heated front seats, a two-way power waist for the driver’s seat, and a single-panel sunroof.
The SR 2.5 is a sporty interior with a basic four-cylinder engine that can be used for front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. When driving the front wheels, the mill can produce 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. If you power all four wheels, the output of the four-cylinder drops to 182 horsepower and 178 pound-feet. SR is the only model equipped with a more powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged variable compression four-cylinder engine, which can provide 236 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, but the midnight version package is not available for this model.
