The World's First Production-Ready Variable Compression Turbo Engine
Whether it’s turbocharged power or fuel-sipping economy, Altima's all-new VC-Turbo engine responds to your input instantaneously. It literally changes shape as it adjusts the compression ratio to maximize output or fuel economy.
Flexes For More Muscle
When you press on the gas, the piston moves to produce a lower compression ratio. Similar to when a sprinter crouches to launch off of the starting line, it results in instant V6-like power from this mighty 4-cylinder turbo engine.
THE INSTANT YOU WANT IT
WHEN YOU NEED IT
Extends For More Efficiency
When you cruise at lower speeds, the rotating assembly transforms to produce a higher compression ratio. And like the more relaxed stance of a long-distance runner, it conserves energy and increases your fuel economy.
The All-New 2.5-Liter DIG Engine

Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission)
Altima's Xtronic CVT features dynamic step shifting, wider gear ratio coverage, and an adaptive shift controller. The result is a more connected, spirited driving experience – all without sacrificing fuel economy.
