The Nissan Altima is a very stylish sedan that has numerous features families want. It offers comfort and is mid-size, so it can be very good for a city user. This sedan features a spacious cabin, contemporary technology and instantly stands out as unique on the market because it offers all wheel drive. It is actually the only sedan that does this in the class.
New For 2020
The 2020 Nissan Altima does not look much different than the 2019 version. In fact, the big redesign for the model happened with the 2019 model. We thus notice only some smaller updates. The Altima gives you access to improved driver-assistance technology when choosing the entry-level models. As optional extras, you can add blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, high-beam assist, and rear cross-traffic alert.
Out of the other memorable enhancements, we should mention the memory function present in sideview mirrors and the beautiful glossy-black accents for the interior when opting for SV and above.
What is truly unique for the Nissan Altima 2020 besides the all wheel drive already mentioned is the VC-turbo engine possibility. It is unique in the sector. While we cannot say how valuable this is, the all wheel drive addition is definitely a very good addition and is worth the $1,350 price tag.
On the whole, these extra additions might seem like not being interesting but they do add true value. For the older models though we do recommend a detailed and structured Nissan Altima extended warranty.
Facts Of Interest For Buyers
For starts, you may want to know that there is no eco-friendly hybrid or a fuel-saving hybrid available. This is where the rivals have an upper hand. However, the 2 gasoline engines available do have a very good fuel economy rating. For instance, the all wheel drive option offers 26 miles per gallon in the city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway.
Speaking about comfort, the interior design is very attractive and most reviewers highly appreciated the addition of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability, together with the fact that back seats are very comfortable even for adults. The only problem is that the back seat can be a little load because of road noise and the folding rear seats are not as smooth as they should. Obviously, these are not that important for most interested buyers.
The important thing that should be mentioned is that the 2020 Nissan Altima was not yet crash-tested by the NHTSA. However, since there are clear similarities between it and the 2019 model, we can say that the previous model was an impressive Top Safety Pick according to the IIHS.
We should highlight that the fancy Altimas include the Nissan ProPilot Assist, which is a semi-autonomous driving mode. This might be a great addition for some interested buyers.
On the whole, the Nissan 2020 Altima is a solid choice in the sector, a mid-style family sedan that is very attractive and that is even better than the praised 2019 model. It is a great pick that should be considered as a viable market contender.
