The Nissan Altima: Performance Specs

2018 Nissan Altima

One look at the new Nissan Altima is all it takes to know this car means business—from its bold grille to its available LED headlights, this is a vehicle that’s sure to leave an impression. And you’ll be happy to know that, despite its eminently affordable price, the Altima feels as good as it looks. Its aerodynamic exterior is enhanced by available Active Grille Shudders to significantly reduce wind resistance, which boosts the Altima’s already remarkable efficiency (it gets an EPA-estimated 38 MPG highway/27 MPG city).

It’s a powerful vehicle too—the Altima 2.5 S, Altima 2.5 SL, and Altima 2.5 SV each come standard with a 2.5 L DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine, which delivers 179 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. And all that power is finessed by a standard Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) for smooth, graceful shifting. Meanwhile, the Altima 3.5 SL comes with a 3.5L DOHC 24-valve V6 engine, which offers slightly less efficiency but delivers 270 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque in exchange.
