Since its recent regional launch, all-new Altima has been awarded the highest 5-star safety rating by the globally recognised National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) of the United States of America. The criteria of this test program have recently been raised, making the assessment even more stringent than previously. Consequently, All-new Altima's occupants can travel in confidence knowing the strength of its body structure and effectiveness of standard safety features have been proven. Those seeking extra reassurance can choose optional technologies, such as Blind Spot Warning.
"All-new Altima is the complete package - it over delivers on the basics, boasts features and technologies never seen in its class before, and offers exceptional value and safety," explained Michel Ayat, CEO Arabian Automobiles. "This stand-out offering broadens Altima's appeal beyond our current customer base and it will play a key role in our plans for future growth. With its class-leading offering, we are confident the all-new Altima will be an increasingly dominant player in the mid-sized sedan segment attracting new private and business customers.
"All-new Altima is a premium mid-size like no other."
Altima has carved its own niche in the mid-size segment and the 2013 model retains the core DNA which defines its character. While Nissan's renown build quality, durability and reliability is ensured, as are value and low running costs, all-new Altima also offers driving pleasure with outstanding ride quality and improved handling, thanks to Active Trace Control (ATC) which stops the car running wide through corners. Two engine options are also available, a 182hp 2.5-litre and a 270hp 3.5-litre V6 which is mated to the next generation Xtronic CVT transmission.

• Upscale interior rivalling premium luxury sedans, including best-in-class seat comfort inspired by zero-gravity research, an Advanced Drive-Assist Display
• Next-generation Safety Shield Technologies, including Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Moving Object Detection (MOD) systems, Rear view camera
• First in class Remote Engine Start for comfort as soon as you enter the cabin

• An attractive multimedia package including Bluetooth Hands-Free Phone System and Streaming Audio, 7 inch colour touch display, Navigation and BOSE Premium Audio 9 speaker System
