Stylish mid-size sedan 2020 Nissan Altima Car Model is a fellow feeling with families want as well as exclusive content they can’t get elsewhere. Along with a spacious cabin and modern technology, the Altima is the only sedan in its class with optional all-wheel drive.
What’s new for 2020:
- The full suite of driver aids now standard on SR trim and optional on S

- The steering lacks road feel and can be slow to respond
- Uninspiring interior materials and disappointing fit and finish
There are two engine options in this Nissan. Every trim comes standard with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder that produces 188 horsepower. You can outfit the SR and Platinum trims with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 248 horsepower. Regardless of which engine you pick, you’ll get a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
With its base engine and front-wheel drive, the Altima gets EPA estimates of 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. That drops to 26 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway with all-wheel drive on the car.
It goes from zero to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds and from 50 to 70 mph (to simulate passing on the highway) in 4.1 seconds.
