About the 2021 Nissan Altima

Along with its lean, architectural styling and confidence-inspiring driving performance, Altima features a range of available safety and convenience features, including standard Automatic Emergency Braking, Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Intelligent Driver Alertness on all grades.

Altima again features available Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies such as ProPILOT Assist, a single-lane “hands-on” highway driving assistance technology that eases driver workload by reducing the amount of driver acceleration, steering and braking input under certain driving conditions. Available Safety Shield 360 includes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Automatic Braking, Lane Departure Warning, radar-based Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and High Beam Assist. Nissan’s Intelligent Around View Monitor is standard on Altima Platinum.

The 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder direct injection engine, which is standard on all grade levels, is rated at 188 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque (FWD). The 2.0-liter VC-Turbo inline 4-cylinder, rated at 236 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque, delivers near V6-level performance with 4-cylinder fuel economy. The VC-Turbo is available on Altima SR VC-Turbo front-wheel drive grade. Both engines are matched with a next-generation Xtronic transmission.

In addition to its standard front-wheel drive, the 2021 Altima also offers Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, which is standard on Altima Platinum and available on SV, SR and SL grade levels equipped with the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine. The system uses an advanced torque split control strategy that automatically redistributes torque to the wheels (from 0:100 front up to 50:50 front-to-rear) according to road and driving conditions.

Key interior features range from standard power driver’s seat to a selection of audio and infotainment choices, including a Bose Premium Audio system with nine speakers.
