Nissan Altima Performance

The 2019 will rack in just over 180 horsepower capped at 182. However, the 2020 Nissan Altima climbs a little farther with a smooth and classy Charabanc wagon lead that maxes out the 2020 Altima at 188 horsepower. Both of which (2019 and 2020 Altima) are available with the optional 2.0 liter turbocharged engine that will push the Altima upwards towards nearly 250 horsepower. The VC-Turbo engine engine(s) is/are accompanied with Nissan’s CVT.


What is a Charabanc Wagon? 

Before automobiles became predominant during the colonial British-English days, a Charabanc was a larger style wagon installed with seats, or benches, in them. These wagons required a minimum of 6 horses to pull and would usually emphasize a fancier way of traveling. 

Fun fact: Today the name/title “Charabanc” refers to what is initially the modern day bus used for general public transportation and sight-seeing and they often get rented out for events and other tourist related functions.
