With a long list of impressive features and an excellent overall value, the 2020 Nissan Altima is a great mid-size sedan for buyers of all walks of life. Nissan has made a number of changes for the 2020 Altima lineup, especially in styling. Laid out below in detail are a few of the most notable features we can expect in 2020 for the Nissan Altima.
The 2020 Altima has made some serious strides forward in terms of its exterior. The company ditched its bulky form and transformed the overall appearance to a sportier and cleaner look. This revamped exterior is trendy, sleek, and aerodynamic. The manufacturer placed the shunt lines on the top sides in order to provide a more aggressive look, especially when accompanied by a dramatic and plunging V-shape nose. Additionally, the sides of Altima have also become a lot neater. A sleek character line passes through the front fender, and connects to a subtle bend at the lower font wheel.
Inside, you will find a standard dashboard featuring user-friendly switchgear. The materials inside vary based on the trim level, but each one has received impressive upgrades. Some of the most notable interior features include heated front seats, ambient interior lights, memory settings on the driver’s seat, and a power sunroof. Additionally, there is flat-bottomed steering along with a soft faux carbon fiber armrest that make cruising comfortable and traffic more bearable. With good comfort and support, the front seats are capable of accommodating a wide variety of different body types. Similarly, the back seats are quite comfortable and offer passengers, both large and small, adequate legroom.
The 2020 Nissan Altima has a standard eight-inch infotainment system across all trims. It also comes with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® capability. Along with the main menu, there are a couple of other customizable options available. The knobs and buttons are easy to navigate, and the touchscreen is responsive. Additionally, navigation and 4G LTE mobile hotspot are available as optional features..
Engine & Performance
The Altima boasts a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 188 horsepower. The engine is complemented by a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Buyers also have the option to choose a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine as well.
The Altima’s engine offers drivers remarkable acceleration. Additionally, the VC-Turbo engine makes the vehicle quicker and more aggressive. The 19-inch wheels and sport-tuned suspension make it more fun to cruise through winding sections.
The 2020 Nissan Altima comes with a host of standard safety features and, as a result, boasts high scores across the board on safety tests. The 2020 Altima earned five-stars in its federal crash tests. All the trims come with automatic emergency braking in order to reduce the severity of crashes.
SV and higher trims get additional safety features, including adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, rear automatic emergency braking, and active lane control. There is also a new ProPilot Assist feature, which can accelerate, brake, and steer the car; however, it is not hands-free.
Bursting at the seams with thoughtful features, the redesigned 2020 Altima is proving to be tough competition for all its competitors.
