Nis­san Al­tima own­ers praise its fuel ef­fi­ciency in ‘Mileage Chal­lenge’

Muscat Daily - - AUTO NEWS -

To cre­ate aware­ness about Al­tima’s re­mark­able fuel econ­omy, Nis­san Oman, from the house of Suhail Bah­wan Au­to­mo­biles (SBA), or­gan­ised ‘Al­tima Mileage Chal­lenge’ at Seeb, Barka, So­har and Qurm re­cently. SBA has been or­gan­is­ing ‘Al­tima Mileage Chal­lenge’ across the sul­tanate as part of its CSR ini­tia­tive over the last five months. The lat­est event saw en­thu­si­as­tic par­tic­i­pa­tion from Nis­san Al­tima own­ers in Seeb, Barka, So­har and Qurm who drove on pre­designed routes.

At Qurm, the win­ner was Ali Ab­dul Karim who man­aged 44.107km per litre. He was fol­lowed by Faisal Salem al Hadi (35.215km) and Salem al Hu­maidi (28.609km). Hait­tam al Mo­hammed al Farisi topped in So­har with 43.87km while Ab­dul Mo­hammed Khamis came sec­ond with 36.26km.

In Barka, Khalid al Jabri was the win­ner with 36.25km while Ali al Fu­daili (36.14km) and Ahmed Ab­dul­lah al Shukaili (35.1km) came sec­ond and third, re­spec­tively. Saud Saleh Hamood al Amri was de­clared the win­ner in Seeb with 21.36km. He was fol­lowed by Kha­sib Ab­dul­lah Mo­hammed al Hadhrami (20.21km) and Na­jim Said Su­laiman al Tamimi (20.09km). All the win­ners and par­tic­i­pants ac­claimed Nis­san Al­tima for its per­for­mance and ef­fi­ciency. Jabri, the win­ner in Barka, said, “Nis­san Al­tima is a fuel ef­fi­cient sedan which I use it when I go for long trips. I find the car very com­fort­able. A big thanks to the SBA team for con­duct­ing an event like this.”

Prais­ing the fuel ef­fi­ciency of Nis­san Al­tima, the win­ner at Seeb, Amri, said, “It is an ex­cel­lent ve­hi­cle to drive with fam­ily and gives good mileage. I like the de­sign el­e­ments of the car too.” Fu­daili said that he never thought Al­tima can pro­vide this much mileage. Thank­ing SBA, he said, “I never used to check the mileage, thanks for let­ting us know the im­por­tance of get­ting good mileage.”

Shukaili said, “Al­tima is the best sedan model that I have used. It is ex­cep­tional and re­li­able. I am grate­ful for the very good sup­port from SBA sales and ser­vice team.” All the par­tic­i­pants ap­pre­ci­ated the qual­ity of ser­vice of­fered by SBA.

A se­nior of­fi­cial of SBA said, “Par­tic­i­pants have been prais­ing the su­pe­rior dy­namic per­for­mance and fuel ef­fi­ciency of the new Nis­san Al­tima dur­ing the mileage chal­lenge which is be­ing or­gan­ised across Oman from the last few months. Nis­san Al­tima is al­ready at­tract­ing a wider au­di­ence in the sul­tanate with its con­tem­po­rary good looks, eye­catch­ing ex­te­rior colour range and spa­cious and fash­ion­able in- terior in ad­di­tion to a pow­er­ful high per­for­mance en­gine.”

Nis­san Al­tima - In­no­va­tive tech­nolo­gies

The new Nis­san Al­tima comes with a fresh new ap­pear­ance in­clud­ing the ‘En­er­getic Flow’ ex­te­rior styling theme and ‘Glid­ing Wing’ in­te­rior lay­out, ‘Class Lead­ing Fuel Econ­omy’ and ‘Im­proved Driv­ing Dy­nam­ics and Safety Tech­nol­ogy’.

The front end of the Al­tima of­fers the most dra­matic change with its en­er­getic flow de­sign, since all pan­els and pieces for­ward of the A-pil­lars are new: Fas­cia, bumper, fend­ers, hood and lights.

Two key el­e­ments are the re- de­signed V-Mo­tion grille and boomerang-shaped head­lights, sim­i­lar to those found on the Maxima. The look is dra­mat­i­cally dif­fer­ent from the pre­vi­ous Al­tima de­sign, with a wide, deeply sculpted lower bumper, in­te­grated fog lights (2.5SV and 2.5SL mod­els) and prom­i­nent chrome-trimmed grille.

The rear of the new Al­tima is marked by a new sculpted bumper with a dark lower ac­cent, a new trunk lid and lower, wider boomerang-shaped com­bi­na­tion lights that help pro­vide a more ex­pres­sive, higher qual­ity ap­pear­ance when ap­proach­ing the ve­hi­cle from be­hind. The fourpiece com­bi­na­tion lights in­cor­po­rate the tail and stop lights, turn lamps and backup lights.

Nis­san com­mit­ted to adding value, in­cor­po­rated cus­tomer feed­back and added com­fort fea­tures such as the stan­dard Zero Grav­ity front seats which have been re­shaped.

The wo­ven cloth seat­ing and door panel ma­te­ri­als fea­ture a more open weave pat­tern, pro­vid­ing a pre­mium look and feel through­out the Al­tima in­te­rior.
