2020 Nissan Altima AWD Glendale Heights IL

2020 Nissan Altima red driving through city at night

It’s not always easy to find a sedan with AWD, but fans of the Nissan brand have it a little bit easier than with other automakers. The 2020 Nissan Altima is a midsize sedan where every trim level is sold with either FWD or Nissan Intelligent AWD.

But it’s not like the Altima has always offered AWD as an option. The sixth generation of the Nissan Altima began with the 2019 model year when AWD became an option on most of its trim levels. The 2021 model year will likely come with AWD available as well, but the 2020 version has Nissan Intelligent AWD on the S, SR, SV, SL, and Platinum trim levels. If you’re researching the Altima that is right for you, the following chart describes some of the highlights of each trim level of the 2020 Nissan Altima with AWD.

Picking a Trim Level with AWD

The options are really as wide open as all five trim levels because none of these trims gets a different engine or transmission than any other. That means that anyone looking for a budget-friendly new Nissan Altima can get the 2020 Altima S for a fair price. Those that want premium comfort and technology with their Nissan Intelligent AWD can choose the Platinum if they wish without missing out on any features.
