Nissan Altima

For the current model year, the 2020 Nissan Altima breaks some new ground for the automaker, and the midsize sedan class. While it retains the same sleek and athletic exterior that was introduced the previous year, it also continues to use a new engine turbocharger that better balances power output and fuel economy scores. The 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine used in some trims employs a variable compression turbocharger. Basically, it offers the power output of a V-6 engine with the fuel economy of a four-cylinder power plant. It will make 248 horsepower and achieve 25 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. However, the available four-cylinder engine also offers incredible output and efficiency figures.
