The 2020 Nissan Altima is a drive with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. This doles out a 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. Then, these SR and Platinum trims can be seen with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. They are marked at 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque as outputs. The engines of 2020 Nissan Altima are paired with Nissan’s Xtronic continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The base engine is capable of producing more than enough power for everyday driving. And the turbocharged variant packs a little extra punch. The CVT operates smoothly and, unlike most CVTs, doesn’t cause the engine to make a droning sound.
Talking of the base Altima’s fuel economy, it gets fuel economy estimates of 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. They are phenomenal figures for a midsize sedan. Though, the turbocharged engine brings this vehicle’s EPA estimates to 25 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.
Talking of the price of the 2020 Nissan Altima, the MSRP of a base 2020 Nissan Altima is marked at $24,100. This is something which we can say is in line with the retail prices of many rivals. The top trim Altima Platinum comes with a starting price of $32,180.
