2023 Nissan Altima Preview
The Nissan Altima is a comfortable midsize car with tame driving dynamics and available all-wheel drive (AWD) for all-weather performance. Though it’s not quite as premium as rivals like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, it offers intuitive tech and excellent fuel economy.
Nissan has refreshed the car for the 2023 model year, bringing updated styling and better standard tech. The 2023 Altima comes in eight trim levels: S, SV, SV AWD, SR, SR AWD, SL, SL AWD, and SR VC-Turbo. Nissan dropped the previous model’s Platinum trim in favor of the VC-Turbo trim that brings a unique engine to the Altima line. The standard engine is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder; both it and the available variable-compression turbo (VC-Turbo) pair with a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
