Nissan Altima MPG and Fuel Economy


The Nissan Altima is an intermediate car first launched back in 1992. It quickly became popular due to its powerful performance and accompanying sleekness of both interior and exterior. As a result, it has gone through several revamps, giving rise to the 2020 Nissan Altima.

This sixth-generation trim is a fresh way of imagining a sedan. Its wide and stable front, along with cutting sharp lines that make up its strong body, makes this vehicle look like an improved version of a regular sedan.

The world-class Nissan proprietary technology is evident in the 2020 Nissan Altima’s engine power, safety features, and infotainment system. This five-seater with standard cloth upholstery is quite spacious and comfortable. Improvements like premium leather seats, heated seats, and steering wheel are also easily available.

A 15.4 cubic feet boot provides ample storage space. Moreover, top-of-the-line driver-assist features ensure a safe drive, no matter what.

The 2020 Nissan Altima is powered by a 2.5- liter engine equipped with four cylinders that create 188 hp and 180 lb-ft torque. Different trims like the SR and the Platinum come with a 2-liter turbocharged engine with four cylinders that give 248 hp with a torque of 273 lb-ft.

Both of these engines feature Altima’s Xtronic Continuous Variable Transmission that leads to firm step shifting, comprehensive gear ratio coverage, and improved shift control. This gives you a dynamic driving experience without compromising on fuel economy. Moreover, the standard engine is easily strong enough for your daily driving needs, whereas the turbocharged engine packs in a little additional power punch.

The Nissan Altima has a fuel economy of 28 mpg citywide and 39 mpg on highways. These are high numbers for an intermediate sedan and outshines all its competitors in the market right now. When it comes to the turbocharged engine, the Nissan Altima’s fuel economy lowers a bit to 25 mpg. On the other hand, when cruising on the highways, it turns out to be 34 mpg.

All in all, you get to choose between two fantastic engines that vary slightly in their mpg figures but that provide excellent fuel efficiency nonetheless.
