The 2020 Nissan Altima 


In the market for an affordable yet spacious mid-size car with seating for five? Look no further than the 2020 Nissan Altima.

Under the Hood

The 2020 Nissan Altima gives drivers two engine options to choose from: a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 188 horsepower, and a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with 248 horsepower. Both engines are paired with CVTs, however, the 2.5-liter engine is also available in an all-wheel drive option. So, if your daily driving involves some treacherous terrain, choose a trim with the 2.5-liter engine so you can take advantage of the all-wheel  drive option. Additionally, braking is sure footed on this vehicle and its emergency braking distance is highly competitive in comparison to its rivals.

The SR trim is a sportier version of the Altima and, as such, it gets a stiffer steering wheel,  as well as updated rear shocks and paddle shifters with the CVT.
