All trims of the 2020 Nissan Altima, S, SR, SR VC-Turbo, SV, SL, Platinum, and Platinum VC-Turbo, use a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to a continuously variable transmission, producing up to 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, as standard equipment. However, the real rock star of the Nissan powertrain lineup is the turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that is also attached to a CVT. It will produce 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque.
Engineers have built the two available engines of the 2020 Altima to achieve its best fuel economy scores using regular-grade gasoline. The standard powertrain can record up to 28 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway with front-wheel-drive. Buyers choosing the turbocharged option can still achieve 25 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.
