Nissan punts the SR as the sporty option in the Altima lineup but with the 2.5L in play, its performance remains identical to the rest of the line. It gets a sport-tuned suspension that stiffens up the ride a little, but with the 19-inch alloy wheels the SR comes with, the ride quality is just far too compromised. It comes with paddle shifters and a manual shifting mode but they're really just there for display as the CVT doesn't really provide for any engagement. The faux carbon cabin trim and charcoal seating upholstery with contrast stitching are a nice touch though.
