Four-wheel traction isn't just limited to pickups and SUVs. If you're looking for a sedan with all-wheel drive (AWD), the 2021 Nissan Altima is a good pick. As part of Nissan's available intelligent-mobility system, AWD provides added grip when the weather turns. This gives you more confidence on the road, no matter how the conditions vary.
While the standard 2.5L four-cylinder engine is nothing to sniff at, the optional 2L turbocharged engine gives maximum versatility. With 236 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque, this engine will bring a smile to your face on those long drives. The extra power is handy for variable terrain and highway passing, and you'll be pleased to know that it still gets an EPA-estimated 34 mpg on the highway.
With five trim levels to choose from, you can easily find the 2021 Altima that suits your needs. The base S model includes power mirrors, push-button start, Bluetooth® connectivity, a seven-inch touch screen, and more. Climb the trims to unlock features such as blind spot warning (SV and up), a power-sliding glass moonroof (SL and up), and an intelligent around-view monitor (Platinum trim). If you're after available all-wheel drive, look for the SV trim and onward—though it comes as standard on Platinum models.
In addition to an array of technology features across all trim levels, plus available packages that add driver aids and other amenities, the Altima is a great companion for daily life. The comfortable cabin, smooth handling, and available space make this a great option whether you're commuting, shuttling around family, or picking up friends for a weekend away. You'll appreciate the 15.4 cu-ft trunk, which is plenty for overnight bags, groceries, or muddy sports kits. Passengers are well catered for, with 43.8 inches of legroom up front and 35.2 inches in the back.
Whether you're in the school carpool lane or are parking outside the office, the 2021 Altima is bound to turn heads with its sleek style. You can up the ante with the Sunset Drift ChromaFlair color. It's a bright orange that really stands out in the parking lot—keep an eye out as you shop; it's only available on SR models. Beyond the bold orange there's a range of other colors that might suit you—try the Pearl White TriCoat if you prefer your style to be a little more understated.
