It is hard to predict how much 2021 Nissan Altima will be different from the last year model since there is no clear information about the novelties in the new model. However, we were able to see that it will change the design and overall look and surely engine strength and performances.
It is expected that the manufacturer will add a few more engines under the hood and improve existed entertainment system. This should put this model back on the list of highly wanted sedans, after the first excitement when the first model was released back in 2012.
- The model is slightly modernized than last year model.
- There are possible changes in the engines.
- The cabin has not been described yet.
- The price is not confirmed.
Although the design of the 2021 Nissan Altima has supposed to be changed to be more attractive and closer to the Nissan Versa or Toyota Supra in the rear end, that will obviously not happen. The reason that we claim that are spy photos made on test driving which show (although covered with thick protection) a car similar to the old Altima.
It should have the same bumper, with the slightly thinner front area and surely aerodynamical the whole front part of the car. The rear end could get new taillights and modern trunk door, along with the new shape of the rear bumper. However, the overall appearance should not be much different from the old model.
The cabin has not been described or photographed so far, so we cannot predict what will be different in 2021 Nissan Altima from the last year model. The last year model had great entertainment section, so we expect improvements in that part, too.
The last year model had great and powerful 2.5-liter petrol unit, matched with the CVT transmission. It would be expected that the new model takes the same, provenly strong and powerful engine and its 185 horsepower with 178 pound-feet of torque.
However, some rumors on the internet claim that they will totally change the approach and offer completely different options. The base model could get a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine with 200 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque. It could be a great addition to the 1.2-liter turbocharged model that will provide 130 horsepower of strength.
Finally, there could be found 2.0-liter turbocharged model that could produce 270 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
2021 Nissan Altima Release Date and Price
The clear releasing date has not been confirmed yet, so 2021 Nissan Altima is still in the fog. However, the last year model had a great price so we expect that the new model could cost around $20,000 as the last year model.
On the other hand, expect great additions and novelties in new Altima that will surely increase the price, so most of them will tease you to order and pay extra for them.
