When it comes to new cars, finding real prices can take a little effort. The starting MSRP will widely show its face on Google, but few people buy that bare-bones, base incarnation of the vehicle, and even fewer (if any) pay the exact price that shows up. A variety of factors affect true vehicle cost, including trim level, features, dealer decisions, and other situational factors.

We all know that the 2020 Nissan Altima has a starting MSRP of $24,100. But how much should you really find yourself paying for this vehicle? Read on to learn the results of our personal investigation.

What is “MSRP”?

MSRP stands for “Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price.” Nissan points out that this figure excludes destination and handling charges, tax, title, license and options. The dealer ultimately sets the actual price.
