2021 Nissan Altima

What's New For the 2021 Nissan Altima?

The Nissan Altima continues its march as a sixth-generation model with its 2021 model year. The available turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is now only available on the SR model. In addition, the SV trim-a notch below the SR-drops in price, as well as in the number of standard features.

2021 Altima Trims & Features

The 2021 Nissan Altima is available in S, SV, SR, SL, and Platinum trim levels. The two rows of cloth-trimmed seats include eight-way power on the driver's side. A leather-wrapped steering wheel appears at the SR trim level, which stands out from the other models with its racing-style seat material. The luxury-oriented SL trim level gets leather seat trim, front-seat and steering-wheel heating, driver-seat power lumbar support, and four-way power on the front passenger seat. Driver-seat memory is exclusive to the Platinum model.

Using a 7-inch touchscreen, the Altima integrates a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system, wireless hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, Siri Eyes Free for virtual assistance, voice recognition, hands-free text messaging ability, a USB port, and an audio jack for hooking up mobile devices. Convenient access and engine starting are made possible by combining a smart key system with a remote start and a push button. Added at the SR trim level are Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, a three-month subscription to SiriusXM Radio, three additional USB ports, and NissanConnect infotainment integration with an 8-inch touchscreen. The SL gains a dual-zone automatic climate control system, two more three-month SiriusXM subscriptions (SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link), and a nine-speaker Bose stereo system. Only the Platinum gets an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a garage-door opener.

2021 Nissan Altima Horsepower

The base powertrain of the 2021 Altima consists of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable transmission. The engine produces 182 horses on the Platinum and 188 horses on the other trims. A variant of the SR is dubbed the SR VC-Turbo, after its turbo 248-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which produces top acceleration on the Altima. The front-wheel drive is standard on the S, SV, SR, and SL, with the option of upgrading to an all-wheel drive on the last three; the Platinum is the lone all-wheel drive model for maximum road grip.

Nissan Altima Safety

The ProPILOT Assist suite of driver-assistance technologies-which comprises automatic high beams, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, driver alertness warning, and lane intervention-is standard. There's also a rearview camera for parking guidance, and eight airbags provide restraint and cushioning when needed. Active ride control, a head-up display, blind-spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic rear braking, trace control, and rear parking sensors on the rearview camera appear at the SV trim level. Traffic sign recognition appears at the SL trim level, and only the Platinum gets its rearview camera replaced with a surround-view one.
