Buyers can add AWD to any Altima equipped with the base, 2.5-liter engine for a $1,350 premium.

The second surprise is the addition of a 2.0-liter turbocharged variable compression engine.

The VC-Turbo engine is a magical bit of engineering that can alter the reach of a piston with every stroke.

The result is a compression ratio that extends from 8:1 for maximum performance to 14:1 for better efficiency.

The VC-Turbo engine produces a healthy 248 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, the latter of which fully comes alive at 1,600 rpm.
