     T   he first hybrid to drive like a Nissan. An incredible fuel economy of 35 mpg(2) without sacrificing the performance
         that makes Nissan special. Mile after exhilarating mile, up to 600 miles per tank. With a sleek, sophisticated
         design, environmental technology and a smooth, silent ride, Nissan Altima Hybrid triumphs over every hybrid

Altima starts up and begins accelerating in “ev” mode, running
solely on the electric motor.

198 Hp: Altima Hybrid’s energy drive shares work duties
between an ultra-clean gasoline-powered 158 Hp 2.5-litre
4-cylinder engine, emissions-free 40 Hp electric motor, and uses
a continuously variable transmission (ecvt).

sTEERING: traditional front-wheel drive layouts offer many          Without compromising power, Altima Hybrid’s full
advantages, including excellent traction. but on a high-powered     hybrid engine drives at low speeds solely on the electric
vehicle, you might notice what is called “torque steer” – the       motor, reserving the gas engine for higher speeds or a
tendency of the steering to pull to one side under acceleration.
                                                                    combination of both. this helps deliver an outstanding

using specially designed suspension components, torque steer in     5.6 l/100 km(1) and a driving range of over 1300 km.

handling as they were meant to be.                                  of any car sold in canada.

suspENsION: Many sport sedans feature independent
suspensions. but Altima takes the extra step, and employs a
350Z-inspired multi-link design for quick response, while still
providing a supple ride. by separating the springs and shocks,
friction is reduced, allowing the components to respond to the
road without compromise.

Anti-lock brAking SyStEm (AbS): in addition to standard
4-wheel disc brakes, a standard Anti-lock braking system (Abs)
helps you maintain steering control in an emergency stop. it
works by pumping the brakes faster than humanly possible to
help keep the wheels from locking up.

SpEED-SEnSitivE StEEring: Altima’s vehicle speed-sensitive
power steering constantly adjusts to give you the ideal amount
of power assistance. More boost at lower speeds makes parking
and maneuvering easier, while less boost at higher speeds gives
a secure, confident feel.

ElEctronic brAkE forcE DiStribution (EbD): Altima’s
Abs features electronic brake force distribution (ebd) to
constantly monitor weight distribution and adjust rear brake
force for balanced braking power.
         sLEEk INTERIOR: before you drive
         off, pause a moment to take in the rich
         materials, the feel of the buttons and
         switches, even subtle things like the
         flowing contour line above the centre
         vents. think of it as quality time.

         the Altima cabin, you can still find a very
         personal fit when you get in the driver’s

         ways to put you in just the right position.

         contains 9 cup holders, a large storage
         container located behind the gear shift,

the Nissan Advanced Airbag system (AAbs) includes dual-
stage supplemental front airbags with seat belt sensors and
an occupant-classification sensor. the inflation rate of these
dual-stage airbags adjusts depending on crash severity and
seat belt usage. if the front passenger seat is empty, a sensor
will deactivate the airbag¹.

ZONE BODY CONsTRuCTION: front/rear crumple zones,
hood buckling creases and an energy-absorbing steering
column play an important role in helping keep you safe in the
event of an accident.

sTaBILITY CONTROL: stability control automatically senses
when the vehicles handling limits have been exceeded and
reduces engine power and/or applies select brakes to help
prevent the driver from losing control of the vehicle.                                                                                 sTaNDaRD INTELLIGENT kEY: ultimate convenience
