2021 Nissan Altima is one of those cars that people like and buy with respect, even though they have not changed design that much in the past. This time it comes almost the same as before since the manufacturer has made a significant change in 2017. However, we could say that the model is beautiful, sporty, and exciting, even with the equipment and design that are not much different from other cars in the class.
- The model has good engines in offer
- The cabin is full and very comfortable
- The design is not much different from the competition
- The technology in the cabin is too simple
2021 Nissan Altima comes as one of the most straightforward but beautiful and modern models. The manufacturer has not changed overall look for a long time, so we do not expect significant changes in this model either. This time, you will see a little longer hood and visibly thinner front end.
However, they have not changed the shape of the model, so it has a sloped roofline and short rear end. You could say that they have remained details that recall on Chevrolet Malibu or even Subaru Legacy. Taillights are slightly redesigned.
There is an impressive and very comfortable cabin inside of the 2021 Nissan Altima. It is not much decorated, and there is a visible lack of details and curved lines. However, it has a great spacious space between rows and enough room for five passengers. The same simplicity we were able to see on Hyundai Sonata before. You will see an excellent HVAC interface and an upgraded infotainment system.
Even the steering wheel is flat and straightforward, with only a sign in the center. The equipment is excellent for this class. Among many other things, they included automatic headlights, cloth upholstery, a six-speaker AM/FM audio system controlled by buttons on 7-inc or optional 8-inch touchscreen, phone connection, and more.
2021 Nissan Altima Engine
The manufacturer has decided not to do experiments with the engines that will offer in this model. Engines that come in 2021 Nissan Altima are the same as before. It is for two options. The base model comes with 2.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque.
The second one is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder model with 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Both engines come paired with a CVT transmission. However, only the basic model will be able to order as an all-wheel driving model. Otherwise, you should satisfy with the front-wheel option that will be offered in both versions.
2021 Nissan Altima Release Date and Price
Since old models were in class that is affordable for a vast number of buyers, the manufacturer will not disappoint buyers with 2021 Nissan Altima either. You should expect that the base price will be around $25,000, but with optional increases in that number.
