Nissan Altima Gas Mileage (MPG)

Unlike other fuel economy surveys, TrueDelta's Real-World Gas Mileage Survey includes questions about how and where a car was driven. So you can get an idea of the Nissan Altima's real-world MPG based on how and where you drive a car.

Nissan Altima Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2014 4dr Sedan 182-hp 2.5L I4 CVT FWD My new 2014 Altima is listed to get 27 mpg city, 38 mpg Hwy and 31 mpg combined. It doesn't come close. The reason I purchase this car over the Accord or Camry was the gas milage. I assume Hwy milage means you are driving 65-70 mph. I have made a couple trips over 400 miles and I calculated my gas milage for the two trips at 31.5 mpg that's with the cruse controle on. Note the car's computer said I was getting 34.7 mpg. My milage back and forth to work is about 26-27 mpg. That is a combined city hwy trip. The car's computer says I'm getting 31 mpg. I will be taking the car back to the dealer to ask what I must do to even get close to 38 mpg at Hwy speeds. I'm very very disapointed!!! I know Hyundai and Ford have lost federal law suits for eroneus gas milage estimates.
2014 4dr Sedan 182-hp 2.5L I4 CVT FWD Since the weather gotten warmer, I have been averaging about 35 mph combined mpg which is excellent for a vehicle of this size with a 2.5L four cylinder. The Xtronic CVT transmission is key to obtaining good fuel economy. Once at cruising velocity, engine rpm stays below 1800 rpm at 70 mph and below 1500 rpm at 60 mph. I drive 80 hwy/ 20 city most of the time.
2013 4dr Sedan 182-hp 2.5L I4 CVT FWD I have had my 2013 Altima for 10 months and 12,000 miles. The gas mileage in this car is great. I drive 75% highway and get on average 37 - 38 miles a gallon. I can go 600 miles without any worry of running out of gas.
2013 4dr Sedan 182-hp 2.5L I4 CVT FWD If you have a 60/40 city-hwy, then you are better off with a hybrid or in this instance a fuel sipper. The car is large, nimble with the power assist and light due to the re-design. I am averaging about 30mpg and if my hwy gets more, I am expecting a 36mpg. This is very much inline with the advertisements by Nissan.
2010 2dr Coupe 175-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp manual FWD Reasonable around 10-12 litres/100Km for 100% city driving
2010 4dr Sedan 175-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp shiftable CVT FWD I have gotten use to the CVT transmission. This transmission is set up to use the engine torque to aid in fuel economy. When you take off from a stop light, you can feel the transmission change (no shifting felt) where the engine rpm is kept low (low rpm) and engine torque pushing the car more than horsepower moving the car. For maximum horsepower, the rpm's have to rise up above 3k rpm. When the rpm is kept low, the engine is not using as much fuel, thus increasing fuel economy. The CVT does a good job at utilizing the engine's torque at low speeds (city driving) to aide in maxing fuel economy. On the highway, it varies the gear ratio's without feeling it shift. You may observe at 70 mph the rpm at 2k rpm. When needing more power or climbing steep hills, you do not feel it shift, but will observe the rpm (tachometer) rising to meet demands for the situation. It you drive it easily, maintaining speed limits, and allow the car time to increase speed, it definitely maximizes fuel economy. It you had a heavy foot and and go zipping around, then you loose economy. But driven easily with a mind on economy, I get approx 32 mpg in this car on the highway and around 25-26 city. If I'm driving "in a hurray" so to speak, I lose about 5-6 mpg all around.
2010 4dr Sedan 270-hp 3.5L V6 6-sp shiftable CVT FWD CVT provides 28-29 on hwy
2009 4dr Sedan 270-hp 3.5L V6 6-sp shiftable CVT FWD I had a 4 cyl Toyota Camry that got about 21 mpg. The 6cyl Altima with CVT gets 21.8.
2009 4dr Sedan 175-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp shiftable CVT FWD Best fuel economy in a mid-size sedan. I get over 31 MPG on the highway.
2009 4dr Sedan 175-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp shiftable CVT FWD Exceeds the sticker ratings of 23 city and 31 highway. I consitently get 27 city and 35 highway.

2013 4dr Sedan 182-hp 2.5L I4 CVT FWD City MPG is disappointing.
2013 4dr Sedan 182-hp 2.5L I4 CVT FWD I do most of my driving on the highway as well as long road trip in the 1st month of owning and I have never gotten mileage better that 33 mpg - my average is 26 mpg
2011 4dr Sedan 270-hp 3.5L V6 6-sp shiftable CVT FWD Car now has just over 1500 miles on it. Tanks of gas have ranged from 21.7 MPG to 27.1 MPG. Hoping for more consistency as drivetrain continues to break in
2008 4dr Sedan 175-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp shiftable CVT FWD the highway fuel economy is rated at 45mpg imperial gallon. it does not even get close im lucky to get 32 to 33.5 mpg
2007 4dr Sedan 270-hp 3.5L V6 6-sp shiftable CVT FWD Fuel economy is not bad, but with gas approaching 4 dollars a gallon, and Nissan recommending premium fuel, it still hurts a bit. Update: I just burned my first tank of regular and could tell no difference at all. (No premium or midgrade available.)
2007 4dr Sedan 175-hp 2.5L I4 6-sp shiftable CVT FWD Average 23mph on the HWY with a 4cyl and 175HP! Enough said...
2005 4dr Sedan 270-hp 3.5L V6 6-sp shiftable CVT FWD In this time of high gas prices a 4 cylinder would be a wiser choice
