The 2021 Nissan Altima is not the most attractive or exciting family car, but it’s capable, proficient, and available with some unconventional options. The latter include an all-wheel drive and a unique variable-compression turbocharged engine. Unfortunately, Nissan won’t allow both of them to be paired together. Instead, the VC-Turbo is retrained for a single model that is tuned for more sporty intentions, and we found it very athletic. While the Nissan Altima isn’t as beautiful or attractive as the Honda Accord or the Mazda 6, it has a very comfortable space and a list of popular driver assists and features.
The 2021 Nissan Altima has a standard 188-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that matches a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The optional turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder generates 248 horsepower with premium fuel and also uses the CVT. While Nissan shows off the innovative variable-compression technology, only the 2.5-liter engine can be used with all-wheel drive. The standard four-cylinder engine and all-wheel drive had expected, though unremarkable, acceleration. The engine of the vehicle grew noisier the harder the gas pedal is pressed, but the four-cylinder Camry that was tested was equally loud at times. The VC-Turbo engine makes the 2021 Nissan Altima a lot faster.
In the interior of the 2021 Nissan Altima, its cabin provides a straightforward dashboard with user-friendly switchgear. Interior materials differ among trim levels, but everything is a notable improvement compared with the previous-generation Nissan Altima. The SV test of the vehicle had some attractive appointments and hard plastics that drew little attention. The flat-bottomed steering wheel and faux carbon fiber were much, mainly when there are no paddle shifters or selectable drive modes on the vehicle. But still, the soft armrests made driving and sitting in traffic more bearable. The front seats can harbor a different variety of body types, but we felt that the lower back support was too aggressive.
