For 2021, the front end of the sedan is outfitted with a brand new dark chrome V-motion grille that gives it a stylish, aggressive look that is hard to find in sedans. The moonroof is now powered for easy sliding and features body color door handles for a symmetrical style. One of the biggest changes in the Altima's exterior comes in its SV trim. The SV trim comes down in cost, and loses a few standard features, but does offer some exterior options that make it stand out on the road.
Nissan dished out some luxurious features for the 2021 Altima's interior. Included in this model Nissan are chrome matte finishes and wood tone trim in the interior, which gives it an updated look. Available interior features include heated front seats, heated steering wheel, and dual zone automatic temperature control, which allows everyone in the sedan to be extremely comfortable no matter what their tolerance is for heat and cold.

The premium sound is standard on upper trim levels. On base Altimas for 2021, the standard audio system is a great option with quality sound.
Car shoppers can choose from a variety of mechanical specifications amongst the Altima's trim options. The SR VC Turbo trim features a 2.0L variable compression turbo engine (VC-Turbo). Other engine options include the DO HC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine. On the base model, Nissan installs a 2.5L direct inject gas engine capable of 248HP @5,600 RPMs. Each of these engine options is expertly crafted to provide power on the road, excellent handling and steering, and great gas mileage.
