Nissan Altima named two thousand seventeen Strategic Vision Total Quality Influence (TQI) winner in Mid-size Car segment
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan today announced that the two thousand seventeen Altima has been named the top scoring mid-size car in the Strategic Vision Total Quality Influence (TQI) Awards. The two thousand seventeen Altima had a total evaluation score of six hundred six out of a possible 1,000 – more than sixty points above the segment average.
Strategic Vision’s 23rd annual Total Quality Influence (TQI) report is based on results from the Fresh Vehicle Practice Investigate® (NVES) surveying over 42,000 Jul.-Dec. fresh vehicle buyers after the very first ninety days of ownership. The TQI rating system permits owners to fully reflect their practices with their vehicles, including tangible aspects such as acceleration and visibility, intangible aspects such as vehicle picture, emotional aspects and involvement, as well as a comprehensive survey of the number and severity of the vehicle problems reported.
According to the investigate results, Altima stood out in categories such as seat convenience, interior design, thoughtful engineering and interior versatility. Quoting an Altima possessor from the investigate: “I have fallen in love with how beautiful this car looks. Everything on the exterior is indeed a plus because the journey starts on the inwards and with how much you will love the practice of driving this vehicle.”
The investigate editors added: “Most importantly, (Altima) produces what its buyers hope for when they purchase. This kind of emotional delivery leads to greater loyalty later down the road.”
Altima is Nissan’s 2nd best-selling model, following the Nissan Rogue, selling almost 150,000 units in the very first six months of 2017. It was redesigned for the two thousand sixteen model year and has added a fresh Altima SR Midnight Edition for 2017. The Midnight Edition features black 18-inch Midnight Edition aluminum-alloy wheels and low-profile 235/45R18 all-season tires, black mirror caps, black rear spoiler, LED headlights, Remote Engine Embark one and available Midnight Edition floor mats.
Beginning in June 2017, Altima Two.Five SV, Two.Five SL and Trio.Five SL grades added Forward Emergency Braking (FEB) two and Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) three as standard equipment.
“The two thousand seventeen Altima anchors Nissan’s sedan lineup, suggesting the style, spectacle, technology – and award-winning quality – that was recognized by owners participating in the Strategic Vision TQI explore,” said Scott Shirley, vice president, Nissan Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations. “We are particularly pleased by the high rankings Altima received from Gen Y buyers, helping thrust it to the top of the mid-size car segment.”
