2021 Nissan Altima rims

The 2021 Nissan Altima with AWD is a recent arrival to the lineup, giving you access to intelligent All-Wheel Drive for added confidence and improved grip on the pavement. Just what is “intelligent” AWD, and what can you expect from a 2021 Altima with AWD? We’re glad you asked.

Intelligent All-Wheel Drive

Why should you opt for the Nissan Altima AWD? The available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system continuously monitors road conditions and can respond to changes immediately — you don’t need to switch between 2WD and AWD. The Nissan Altima AWD system distributes power among all four wheels to deliver ideal responsiveness and traction. When driving during normal conditions, the system sends power to just the front two wheels for better fuel economy.

Nissan Altima Engine

The standard Nissan Altima engine delivers 182 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque, and you can have it in FWD or AWD. If you’re looking for more power, you can find it on the Nissan Altima VC-Turbo with 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. If you need a Nissan Altima AWD, though, you’ll have to go with the standard engine — it’s currently unavailable with the VC-Turbo engine.

Nissan Intelligent Mobility Features

In addition to adding AWD for a more confident drive, available Nissan Intelligent Mobility features can help you drive with even more peace of mind.

  • Active Ride Control – Applies the brakes or applies engine torque when navigating bumpy roads
  • Intelligent Trace Control – Helps you navigate tight turns with ease
  • Hill Start Assist – Holds the brake pressure for a few seconds when tackling an incline so you are able to move your foot from the brake to the gas without the vehicle rolling backward
