Now into its second model year after a complete redesign for 2019, the 2020 Nissan Altima is the brand’s best-selling sedan. It features a low, wide stance, short overhangs, a deep-set V-Motion grille flanked by boomerang-shaped headlamps, and a Maxima-inspired floating roofline. And it’s one of the few mainstream-brand mid-size sedans available with all-wheel drive.
For 2020, the Altima expands the availability of its Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite of driver-assistive technologies to all trims. The Altima’s competitors include the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Chevrolet Malibu, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Subaru Legacy, Volkswagen Passat, and Mazda6. Including the $895 destination charge, the 2020 Altima lineup includes the base $24,995 Altima S, the sporty $26,595 Altima SR, midgrade $28,775 Altima SV, well-equipped $31,135 Altima SL, and loaded $33,075 Altima Platinum. All-wheel drive is a $1,350 upcharge.
