Trim Level Comparison: 2020 Nissan Altima

Nissan Manchester showrooms offer a range of Nissan models to choose from, including the 2020 Nissan Altima. At our Manchester CT Nissan dealership, you can choose from the five trim levels offered on the 2020 Nissan Altima: S, SR, SV, SL, and Platinum. 

All trim levels have standard front-wheel-drive, but all-wheel-drive is also available. A standard 2.5-l direct-inject gasoline engine is available on all trims, but a 2.0l VC Turbo engine is optional on the SR and Platinum models. The 2.5l engine produces 182 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque with a fuel efficiency of 28/39 mpg in the city/highway, while the 2.0l engine produces 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque with 25/35 mpg (city/highway).
