What Is the MPG of the Nissan Altima?
Before we can answer this question, we’ll need to look under the hood.
The new Nissan Altima is equipped with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine and comes standard in front-wheel drive (FWD) or is available with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD).
Each drive mode not only affects the Altima’s power and performance, but its MPG ratings, as well.
FWD nets 188 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. It’s also quite efficient, bringing an EPA-estimated 28 city/39 highway MPG.* Electing for Intelligent AWD brings 182 horsepower, 178 lb-ft of torque, and an EPA-estimated 26 city/36 highway MPG.*
Available VC-Turbo Engine
Did you know that the Altima can also be outfitted with an even more powerful engine?
That’s right! Introducing the 2.0L Variable Compression Turbo (VC-Turbo™) engine, standard on the SR VC-Turbo™ trim level and consisting of 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. This engine also offers an EPA-estimated 25 city/34 highway MPG.*
Speaking of MPG ratings, this engine also has some tricks up its sleeve when it comes to efficiency. When cruising at lower speeds, the rotating assembly switches to produce an increased compression ratio, thus increasing your fuel economy and conserving energy.
2021 Nissan Altima: Dynamic Drive Technologies
The Altima’s MPG gives the fuel needed to hit the open road, while Nissan’s suite of dynamic drive technology provides the ability to ride with confidence and peace of mind…
- Active Ride Control: If the road turns bumpy, Active Ride Control will automatically apply the brakes and alter engine torque to create a smoother ride.
- Intelligent Trace Control: When rounding corners, Intelligent Trace Control will keep an eye on the situation. If needed, it’ll individually brake each wheel for smoother steering.
- Hill Start Assist: No more rolling backwards when situated on a hill, thanks to Hill Start Assist. This feature will hold brake pressure for a couple of seconds, allowing time to switch from the brakes to the accelerator.
