Altimas were fully redesigned last year, winning praise from critics and shoppers alike. This year, the 2020 Nissan Altima trim levels have even more value packed into their class-above styling. If you want a sleek sedan that is both affordable and well equipped, you will do well to start your search with the Altima at Nissan of Tustin. The trim levels, which include S, SR, SV, SL and Platinum, offer more driver aides, including ProPilot Assist. Nissan is similarly generous with dashboard technology. Engineering ingenuity is front and center with the award-winning VC-turbo, which delivers speed like a V6 but sips fuel. Rare for this class, Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is now offered on all five 2020 Nissan Altima models, serving Tustin Orange Costa Mesa Garden Grove drivers.
S Trim - 2020 Nissan Altima
The base edition Altima feels like a higher edition. Style is communicated through high-contrast colors and the layered-look, horizontal gliding wing instrument panel. Only Nissan has Zero Gravity dual-density foam seats. A large 8-inch touch screen coordinates the entertainment with the help of Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, Apple CarPlay and rival Android Auto. There are USB charge ports for both rows. A split rear seat allows you to claim more trunk space. Many shoppers will have peace of mind choosing the S trim. That's because automatic emergency braking is standard. Likewise, Intelligent Driver Alertness is on board. These systems, along with the standard rear view monitor, reduce the chances of a crash scenario. For the first time, S buyers can get the Safety Shield 360 package, which is standard on the other trims.
Ensuring a strong finish every time, the Altima has a special 2.5-liter engine. This four-cylinder unit cranks out 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. This fully redesigned powertrain retained only one-fifth of the parts from the old design. Front-wheel drive is standard as you might expect. However, it is surprising to find all-wheel drive at this price point. To make this available, Nissan has devised n AWD system that doesn't weigh the vehicle down. Drivers will appreciate the AWD torque distribution, favoring the front wheels until help is needed for rough driving conditions. Then it splits 50:50 front-to-rear. A brake limited slip differential provides additional security against sliding on wet or snowy pavement.
SR Trim - Nissan Altima in Tustin
The SR is one of two trim levels that offers a choice of engines. The 188-horsepower engine is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional. If you are willing to stick with front-wheel drive, Nissan is offering its VC Turbo. This engine cranks out 248 horsepower. Driving enthusiasts will love the kick of 273 pound-feet of torque at their command. The standard 7-inch Advanced Drive Assist Display adds a performance meter to add to a driver's fun behind the wheel. Serving Tustin Orange Costa Mesa Garden Grove Altima drivers, fuel economy is a money-saving 34 miles per gallon on the highway. Nissan Safety Shield includes a blind spot monitor to reduce the chance of side swipes. A rear traffic alert lets you know when it isn't safe to continue in reverse.
SV Trim - 2020 Nissan Altima dealer
In this case, SV definitely stands for super value. At this level, the 2020 Nissan Altima driver gets ProPilot Assist. The system handles steering, braking and accelerating by using forward-facing radar and a forward-facing camera. Drivers benefit from the system's lane control module that keeps the vehicle centered between the marked lines. A lane departure warning adds another level of protection and assistance. Rear Automatic Braking is tied to the rear cross traffic alert. It recognizes danger and halts the vehicle to reduce the chances of a crash or fender bender. The interior has more amenities including a moonroof, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a rear console HVAC unit, and dual-zone automatic climate control. The driver's power chair gains 2-way power lumbar. Needless to say, every position can find their comfort level much more easily in the SV edition. Unlike the SR, however, the Altima has only one engine option, but this does allow you to choose between standard front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive.
SL Trim - 2020 Nissan Altima
The cabin moves upscale with leather upholstery and a Bose audio system. The dash tech maxes out with Navigation and related services. NissanConnect adds Wi-Fi connectivity and remote start. A power chair for the front seat passenger rounds out the amenities. The SL trim offers the same powertrain and drivetrain choices as the S and SV. It has all of the same safety features as the SV edition, but it adds Traffic Sign Recognition. A camera watches for signs and reports the information to the driver.
Platinum Trim - 2020 Nissan Altima
At this level, Nissan makes the different powertrain and drivetrain combinations available just as they are on the SR trim. Exterior style is emphasized by 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels. Upgraded leather and other stylish materials are illuminated by special accent lighting. New this year, the driver's power chair now has a memory function.
