Top 3 Reasons to Choose a Nissan Altima in 2020
The Nissan Altima has always been known for its unique look and performance. If you’ve never driven one, the 2020 Altima is a great model to start with.
What makes the Nissan Altima worthy of your attention?
Here are our top three reasons:
Due to their similar looks and styling, many cars these days are indiscernible from one another. That’s not the case with the 2020 Nissan Altima.
The Altima stands out from the crowd with a daring and innovative design that turns heads. The most noticeable thing is its V-shaped grille. It contrasts beautifully with the rest of the car. At the same time, it blends in perfectly with the headlights and hood.
More attention-grabbing features on the vehicle are its boomerang taillights and 19-inch aluminum-alloy frameless wheels. On the inside, the excitement continues with an uncluttered interior that can seat five people comfortably.
You’ll also appreciate the matte-chrome and wood-toned accents that sleekly accentuate the “floating” touchscreen and other interior controls.
The premium design of the Nissan Altima extends from its aesthetics to its performance. In the base model, there’s a 2.5-liter 16-valve 4-cylinder engine that can yield up to 188-horsepower.
If that’s not enough power, you can opt for the Platinum VC-Turbo or SR VC-Turbo model. Both models feature a 2.0-liter VCT (Variable Compression Turbo) engine that’s as powerful as a V6, delivering up to 236-horsepower.
Regardless of which engine type you choose, it’ll come with an Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission that delivers remarkable fuel-efficiency. For instance, the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine delivers 28 miles per gallon (MPG) in the city and 39 mpg on the highway.
In the city, the VC-Turbo model delivers about 25 mpg and 34 mpg on the highway.
But it’s not just about power, speed, and efficiency. For optimal control while driving, the 2020 Nissan Altima also features highly-responsive brakes and precise steering. Its Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system even assists by identifying road conditions and automatically adjusting your wheels to cope.
You can get even more assistance from the Altima’s ProPilot Assist system, which is available on all models. It’s a driver-assist technology that makes semi-automated driving possible. With the aid of its low-speed adaptive cruise control and lane centering assist, you’ll enjoy a smooth and safe trip in stop-and-go city traffic or on a freeway.
The Altima’s front crash prevention system is state of the art. It’s so effective, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave it a “Superior” rating.
The system works with other safety features in the vehicle to ensure safe driving, regardless of the road or weather conditions. Some of these other features are:
Anti-Lock Braking System
Blind Spot Warning
Safety Shield® 360
Traction Control System
Automatic Emergency Braking System
Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
Active Ride Control
Intelligent Trace Control
Hill Start Assist
Intelligent Driver Alertness
These features are available on all Nissan Altima 2020 models, except for the S, which doesn’t have blind-spot monitoring or lane departure warning.
If any of what we’ve said about the Nissan Altima seems too good to be true, a test drive will convince you. Head over to your nearest Nissan dealership and prepare to be amazed.
