2021 Nissan Altima: Model Overview


The segment of family sedans is always alluring. Especially when you see a model like the Nissan Altima, it is quite possible that you change your mind of looking for crossovers and settle with one of its kind.

We could say this, as we experienced the same, when we first saw the 2021 model year edition of Nissan Altima at the showroom floor of the famous Bloomington Nissan dealer. The model spoke to us in a language of refinement that helped us connect with the car instantly.

Competent in Every Sense

Our test drive with the 2021 Nissan Altima through every possible road surface and traffic conditions made us realize one thing for sure, that this sedan is competent in every sense. Right from its usefulness to handful of advanced feature options, from creature comfort to ride fun, the 2021 Nissan Altima has everything one can expect from a car of this category.

Among all this what was most alluring is the option to drive the 2021 Nissan Altima with all four wheels. It is something that is rarely to be found in other sedan models of this segment. To accompany this feature with serious intentions, Nissan rightfully selected a variable-compression turbocharged engine that is capable of handling uneven roads with ease. Then comes the inclusion of the VC-Turbo engine which is present in the 2021 model year lineup but specially reserved only for the sportier versions of the 2021 Altima that is well known for its athletic performance capabilities.

Ride Comfort and Drive Fun

The 2021 model year edition of Nissan Altima makes good use of a 188-hp making 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that is set as the standard and is paired to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The optional powerplant shows up a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine making out 248 horsepower after being mated to the same CVT.

The power lineup doesn’t end there. For those who are wildly passionate about driving can choose the all-wheel drive configured 2.5-liter engine that can deliver highly predictable moves, with buttery smooth acceleration. The VC-Turbo charged engine however makes the 2021 Nissan Altima significantly faster.

Sporty Driving Dynamics

The 2021 Nissan Altima that is often nicknamed as the sporty sedan got some really skillful tricks below its carriage which we call as driving dynamics. Nissan has given the 2021 Altima models the support of a sport-tuned suspension. What comes by default to all the trim models is a good ride height that is achieved through the 19-inch wheels.

The experts who attended us at the Nissan dealer Bloomington showroom explained how all this helped the 2021 Nissan Altima become more irresistible especially when driven on the twisty, curvy roads. All the 2021 model year edition of Nissan Altima ensure a comfortable ride that is the effect of the sporty driving dynamics. They helped the 2021 Nissan Altima models stay away from any undue shudder while driving through rough surfaces. The steering system of the 2021 Nissan Altima responds in time with precise outputs while the brake pedal with its instantaneous response, make the occupants feel secure and safe all through the way.
