2021 Nissan Altima
2021 Nissan Altima at Bourgeois Midland Nissan
Surprisingly sporty, from its sleek exterior to what’s under the hood, the 2021 Nissan Altima defies its classification as a family sedan. Offering no shortage of impressive technology, comfort, or fun, the 2021 Altima is as versatile a sedan as you’ll find on the market—and you’ll find it at Ontario’s Bourgeois Midland Nissan!
A wide stance and sculpted exterior immediately alert you to the fact that the 2021 Nissan Altima is no ordinary sedan; an array of unique design elements like its floating roof and V-motion grille firmly place the latest Altima in the “head-turner” category, while also providing aerodynamic support. Ditto for the muscular hood, allowing the 2021 Altima to exude some serious attitude. Inside, attitude gives way to smart design and comfort where standard heated front seats and an available heated steering wheel add warmth to a refined interior featuring wood tone trims and matte chrome accents. Allow the standard Remote Engine Start System to bring your Nissan to a comfortable temperature before you hop in, and find yourself awash in the rich sound of the available nine-speaker Bose Premium Audio System. Of course, you can’t forget the utility to go along with the luxury, which is where the folding 60/40-split rear seat comes in, adding to the already substantial cargo space offered by the Altima’s trunk.
With all those sporty good looks, the expectations are quite high for the 2021 Nissan Altima—and it doesn’t disappoint. A 2.5-litre Direct Injection engine offers a hearty 182 horsepower, along with 178 lb-ft of torque—enough to make those Zero Gravity front seats a necessity as you rocket off the line. A Nissan Xtronic CVT® helps harness all that horsepower in the smoothest manner possible while also providing some serious fuel efficiency, to the tune of 9.1 L/100 km in the city, and only 6.5 L/100 km on the highway. Intelligent All-Wheel Drive ensures that the Altima offers exceptional control in any conditions, monitoring road conditions and responding to them in the blink of an eye, while the independent rear suspension with monotube rear shocks provides comfort and confident handling whether you’re taking it easy or reaching for the redline.

Safety & Technology
Nissan vehicles are always full of the most innovative safety features and technology on the market, and the 2021 Altima is no different. A floating 8-inch touchscreen sits low in the dash, offering a better view of the road, while also providing hands-free access to your phone, music, messages, and more. The Advanced Driver-Assist Display provides insight into all of the tech working to keep you safe, courtesy of Nissan Intelligent Mobility™; from Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Intelligent Emergency Braking, to Intelligent Lane Intervention and Intelligent Blind Spot Warning, this is one smart sedan. Add in the available Nissan ProPILOT Assist™ system, with features like Intelligent Cruise Control and Steer Assist, and you’ll enjoy unparalleled confidence every time you get behind the wheel.
Nissan Altima Model Changes
The 2021 Altima sees few changes from the 2020 Nissan Altima that won the 2020 IIHS Top Safety Pick—for the second year in a row. There has been a number of changes to the individual trim levels though, lowering the price of the well-equipped entry-level Altima SE. There’s also been a variety of new options added, as well as the SV Premium Package which includes a number of additional safety features, a leather shifter and steering wheel, and a sunroof.
