The modern dialects of Nahuatl spoken in the Valley of Mexico are closest to Classical Nahuatl, which was the tongue of the ancient aztecs. According to sources,  is spoken by about 1.5 million people in Mexico. The majority of speakers live in central Mexico, particularly in Puebla, Veracruz, Hildago, San Luis Potosi, Guerrero, Mexico (state), El Distrito Federal, Tlaxcala, Morelos and Oaxaca, and also in El Salvador.

I think that it's safe to assume that the Nahuatl language that is still spoken today has little to do with the language that was spoken by the aztecs, not to say that we still don't know too much abut the aztec civilisation.
