Gas Mileage on a Nissan Altima by Trim

The trims that offer the best Nissan Altima mpg figures are the S, SV, and SL configurations with a 2.5L four-cylinder. Not only can Birmingham and Muscle Shoals drivers expect an efficient new sedan in the Altima, it’s energetic in town or on the highway:

  • 28/39 city/highway mpg
  • 2.5L DOHC16-valve 4-cylinder engine
  • 188 hp at 6,000 rpm
  • 180 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm
  • Standard front-wheel drive
  • Continuously variable valve timing control system (CVTCS) on intake and exhaust valves

Looking for a more engaged drive around The Shoals? You might be interested in the SR and Platinum trim levels. While these sport the same engine under the hood, they have a few updates:

  • Paddle shifters with Manual Shift mode (SR)
  • Sport-tuned suspension (SR)

SR and Platinum models remain efficient with an EPA-estimated 37 highway and 27 city mpg.

If you want to leave the standard Altima in your rearview, you’ll want to upgrade for the turbocharged four-cylinder found on the Altima SR VC-Turbo™, Platinum VC-Turbo™, or the Edition ONE VC-Turbo™. See the specs for yourself:

  • 2.0L Variable-Compression Turbo (VC-Turbo™) 4-cylinder engine
  • 248 hp at 5,600 rpm
  • 273 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm
  • Standard front-wheel drive
  • Electronic sequential multi-point fuel injection

You might expect a sharp dip in fuel economy for those specs, but the Nissan Altima VC-Turbo™ numbers reach an EPA-estimated 25/34 city/highway mpg.
