Although the 2021 Nissan Altima can be found in a wide variety of configurations, including S, SV, SR, SL and Platinum, every trim level of this sedan comes equipped with the same powertrain and transmission system. A continuously variable automatic transmission system comes standard in this sedan, attached to a turbocharged, four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine which is capable of generating up to 236 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque.
