While not a segment leader, the Altima is a comfortable, easy-to-drive sedan with desirable all-wheel-drive and a powerful turbo option.

The 2021 Nissan Altima offers snazzy looks and some very interesting powertrain options. All-
wheel drive is available, as is a technologically impressive VC-Turbo engine with variable
compression for enhanced power and fuel economy. It’s a more intriguing choice in the midsize
sedan segment than it’s ever been, even with healthy competition from other Japanese and
Korean brands. Nissan modernized the interior and gave the new Altima the technology it needs
to compete against the others on an even playing field, and it’s much better for it.

Nissan hasn’t announced any official changes for the 2021 Altima yet, but we expect the sedan
to largely remain unchanged. It was completely redesigned for the 2019 model year.

Nissan offers five different trim levels for the Altima: S, SR, SV, SL and Platinum. Every trim
level comes with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder as standard, matched up with a continuously variable
transmission. It makes 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque with front-wheel drive —
the all-wheel drive model has 182 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive is
available with every trim level. Fuel economy is 32 mpg combined with front-wheel drive (31
mpg for the SR and Platinum grades) and 30 mpg with all-wheel drive. The 2.0-liter VC-Turbo
engine is optional on the SR and Platinum grades, and it’s only available with front-wheel drive.
Power is strong at 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Combined fuel economy dips
to 29 mpg with the VC-Turbo.
