2021 Nissan Altima

What's New For the 2021 Nissan Altima?

This year, Nissan's innovative VC-Turbo engine is only available on the sporty SR trim. A new SV Premium package has arrived as well.

2021 Altima Trims & Features

Nissan offers the new Altima in five primary trim levels: S, SV, SR, SL, and Platinum. The entry-level Altima S is an excellent pick for budget-minded car shoppers. Standard features include a 7.0-inch touchscreen, push-button start, and Bluetooth.

Another step up the trim ladder is the Altima SV. It brings an upgraded NissanConnect infotainment system, which features a larger 8.0-inch color display with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone connectivity. An eight-way power driver's seat enhances comfort.

The Altima SR is a popular choice. Paddle shifters and a sports-tuned suspension enable you to experience more driving fun. Larger 19-inch alloy wheels also give the SR trim a more aggressive stance. Interior upgrades include a digital gauge cluster, heated front seats, and a sunroof.

Drivers seeking more luxury should consider the leather-appointed Altima SL. It features a heated steering wheel and dual-zone automatic climate control. While music fans can enjoy the nine-speaker Bose sound system, travelers will appreciate the SL trim's integrated navigation system.

Atop the lineup is the plush Altima Platinum. Aside from upgraded leather upholstery, it also comes equipped with a 360-degree Around View Monitor camera system and interior accent lighting.

2021 Nissan Altima Horsepower

The Altima comes standard with a strong 2.5-liter, DOHC four-cylinder engine. It's rated to churn out a satisfying 188 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. Available as an option on the sporty SR model, Nissan's VC-Turbo engine elevates performance with 248 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. This advanced four-cylinder engine feels just as muscular as a traditional V6 engine. However, the fuel economy is far more impressive. All versions of the new Altima use a standard Xtronic transmission. An intelligent AWD system is also offered on every trim.

Nissan Altima Safety

Few cars in the class can rival the Altima's first-rate crash protection. Several advanced safety technologies are available. Standard automatic emergency braking can help prevent an accident from happening. Nissan's cutting-edge ProPILOT Assist ensures a less stressful highway drive. Blind-spot monitoring, rear automated braking, and pedestrian detection are available as well.
