2021 Nissan Altima Review

Overview
The Nissan Altima makes driving fun again—and makes you look good doing it. It’s a sedan for everyone—sporty outside comfortable inside and packed with all the technology you need to stay connected and protected. Choose from five trims starting with the S and moving through the well-equipped Platinum. Outside the Altima’s sleek design gives it a super-low 0.26 coefficient of drag. Inside NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats stay comfortable hour after hour. Get maximum power and maximum efficiency from the world’s first production Variable-Compression Turbo Engine. Or go for the 2.5-liter Inline Four and feel the benefit of available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive—a first for a Nissan sedan. Nissan Safety Shield 360 helps you stay confident and connected. Available ProPILOT Assist uses cameras and radar to make rush-hour commuting easier. And available NissanConnect brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration to a touchscreen display. Choose from a variety of colors options and Genuine Nissan Accessories and build an Altima that’s all yours. The Nissan Altima. It’s a sedan you can get excited about.
Technology
The Nissan Altima isn’t just practical. It’s smart too! NissanConnect brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration to a touchscreen display. Available Nissan Door to Door Navigation with Premium Traffic gives you turn-by-turn directions—including how to get where you’re going after you park. And available NissanConnect Services4 turns your compatible smartphone into a remote control for your Altima. Add the available Nine-Speaker Bose Premium Sound sytem and you’ll love every trip you take even your morning commute. The Nissan Altima. Practical. And connected.
Safety
Nissan Safety Shield 360 is part of every Nissan Altima adding confidence to every drive. Every Altima comes with driver-assist features like Automatic Emergency Braking and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning. Additional features like Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert are available too. Available ProPILOT Assist uses cameras and radar to make rush-hour commuting easier. Just push two buttons and your Altima will help keep itself centered in its lane and maintain a set distance to the vehicle in front—even in traffic jams! The Nissan Altima. Because safety makes sense.
Performance
The Nissan Altima’s 0.26 coefficient of drag is visual proof that this mid-sized sedan was designed to be driven. Now you don’t have to choose between performance and gas mileage. Now you can get both—maximum power and maximum efficiency with the world’s first Variable-Compression Turbo Engine. Or go for the 2.5-liter inline four and feel the benefit of available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive—a first for a Nissan sedan. Whatever drivetrain you choose enhanced suspension steering and chassis control helps your Altima perform better—and more quietly. The Nissan Altima. It’s a class above.
