Inside the 2021 Nissan Altima, you’re getting a smooth ride at a great price.

Central Houston Nissan is here to offer Houston drivers a primer on the Nissan Altima gas mileage and point you to our financing page that can get you in the car of your dreams at a better interest rate.

Nissan Altima S, SV, & SL

When you go for the lower trims on the 2021 Nissan Altima, you’ll find 28 miles per gallon in the city and 39 on the highway.* What else do you get apart from the great Nissan Altima MPG? Take a look:

  • 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

Nissan Altima SR & Platinum

If you want a higher trim on the Nissan Altima, keep in mind that you’re going to sacrifice a little of the Nissan Altima gas mileage. You get 27/37 city/highway mpg* when you pick one of these trims. Even though you’re getting the same 2.5L engine, additional features for performance cost you ever so slightly when it comes to the Nissan Atlima fuel economy. Why’s this? See it all here:

  • Higher curb weight
  • Greater vehicle height and narrower track width
  • Paddle shifters with Manual Shift mode (SR)
  • Sport-tuned suspension (SR)
