2021 Nissan Altima

Design is one of the major reasons to buy from the current crop of Nissan vehicles, examples being the Ariya, Rogue and Rogue Sport, Altima, and Pathfinder. This write-up is meant to talk about the 2021 Nissan Altima, which is a highly competitive family sedan. The Altima is guaranteed to deliver a smooth and luxurious commute in the morning.

Trims Available:

Buyers have the following trim levels to choose for the 2021 Nissan Altima:

  • SL
  • Platinum
  • S
  • SR
  • SV

Engine Details

Two engines are available in the 2021 Nissan Altima here at Hudson Nissan of Charleston, a 2.0 and a 2.5. The 2.0 liter turbocharged engine is available for the SR trim and can generate 248 hp of power. Compared to this, the other 2.5 liter engine is responsible for belting out 188 hp of power. Both engines have been mated to a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission).

AWD (All Wheel Drive) is available for the 2.5, with this making it the only family sedan with off-road abilities. In its segment, the Altima competes against the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry.

The car will certainly accelerate faster with the 2.5 liter powertrain. The SR trim is available with a sport tuned suspension and 19-inch wheels. Therefore, the 2021 Nissan Altima will deliver a smooth ride free from shudders on bad roads.


Exterior Appearance:

The outer design on the 2021 Nissan Altima is very fresh here, as compared to previous versions. It will take a few years though for a redesign to be done. The integration of the signature V Motion grille with front light housings looks aesthetically pleasing. There are two lines of design in the center and one sharp line can be seen running along the vehicle’s side. Nissan has used a floating roof design for most of the Altima’s trims.

SR and the Platinum variants of the Altima receive LED daytime running lights. No LED taillights will be present on the Platinum trim.


Interior Appearance:

The Platinum trim of the 2021 Nissan Altima gets soft touch materials on its front door of the Platinum trim. Altima door sills are illuminated, and the door panels receive contrast stitching. Overall, the dashboard design is simple and very user friendly, and a major improvement can be seen over the last year’s model.

Front memory seats have been provided for this vehicle, and the driver gets an 8-way adjustable seat. Platinum passengers will be very comfortable in the Nissan Zero Gravity Seats, said to be designed by NASA. Other features inside include:

  • User friendly 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system

  • Cup Holders
  • Soft touch material for the arm rest
