2020 Nissan Altima Redesign
On the exterior, there are new lines and creases. The manufacturer aims to enhance the sporty looks of the sedan with lower, wider and longer shape on the body. The sedan has the muscular looks on the hood that flows to the new LED headlights and its exaggerated V-motion grille. At the center of the grille opening, there is a large black slab. It marks that the car has radar-based safety technology and it is located behind the Nissan logo. However, this technology is optional so you need to make a demand to equip the car with such technology.
On the interior, you will see a comprehensive 2020 Nissan Altima redesign. There is a tabled style infotainment screen on the dash and it is the first of its kind in Nissan’s cars. Below the screen, there are some knobs that serve functions such as controlling temperature and volume. Then, there is the HVAC climate control dials below the infotainment screen, USB ports, a new steering wheel, and push-button ignition. Furthermore, there is no further information about the New Nissan Altima interior redesign. So, we need to wait another leaked or even the official information regarding this car.

Then, the second one is a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that has both great power and efficiency. The last one is a 1.6-liter engine that can deliver power up to 188 horsepower. Such power can compete against the competitors’ turbocharged four-cylinder engines.
The car is also rumored to release a hybrid model as it was in 2011 the last time we have a hybrid Nissan Altima.
