Nissan Altima Gas Mileage: S, SV, and SL Trim Levels

The gas mileage on a Nissan Altima maxes out at an EPA-estimated 28 mpg city/39 mpg highway* on the S, SV, and SL trim levels with front-wheel drive. If you wish to enhance your road performance with available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, your Nissan Altima gas mileage will be an EPA-estimated 26 mpg city/36 mpg highway*. Under the hood of these three trims, you’ll find a strong base engine to support the Nissan Altima mpg:

  • 2.5L DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine
  • 188 hp at 6,000 rpm
  • 180 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm
  • Standard front-wheel drive / available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive
  • Continuously variable valve timing control system (CVTCS) on intake and exhaust valves

Nissan Altima SR and Platinum Fuel Economy

Opting for the Nissan Altima SR and Platinum trims will award you with the same 2.5L base engine, but your mpg ratings will be a bit lower, coming in at an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city/37 mpg highway* with front-wheel drive and EPA-estimated 25 mpg city/35 mpg highway* with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. The following upgrades offer greater performance on Mehlville roads, but can affect your mpg rating slightly:

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

With the VC-Turbo™ engine, performance specs are as follows:

  • 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
