The S is followed by the SV, SR, and SL trim levels, all three of which can be had with either front- or all-wheel drive. The SV AWD will cost $28,685 with destination; The SV FWD will cost a little less at $27,185, making the AWD option $1,500. For reference, last year’s SV AWD started at $27,925.

Ours 2019 Altima Road Test ended with a standing ovation for this modern mid-size sedan. And a whole year later Long-term testing of the 2019 Altima, we agreed that it was a really nice driving experience; smooth and agile with a comfortable interior. We said at the time that Nissan was committed to supporting great sedans, and we suspect that will be true of the 2023 model as well.
