The 2019 NissanAltima arrives with an all-new generation and plenty of upgraded features. New standard safety systems and improved performance put the midsize sedan on par with some of the industry’s most expensive competitors and helps it stand its ground as a staple of the segment.
Despite falling sales, the midsize sedan segment remains one of the most competitive in the industry, and the redesigned Nissan Altima puts segment leaders in their place. As the Japanese automaker’s second-best-selling model, the Altima has a reputation for exhilaration, comfort, and reliability to uphold.
The Nissan Altima’s interior boasts a standard eight-inch touchscreen display. Its infotainment system features Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, and owners with an Apple Watch or Android Wear have the ability to start and stop the engine remotely. Unlike in competing midsize sedans, the 2019 Altima features ergonomic knobs for audio controls.
Not many affordable midsize sedans offer available all-wheel drive, but the 2019 Nissan Altima does just that. The Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system sends engine power to the front wheels or it can split the output between the front and rear wheels, and the advanced system is available in all Altima models equipped with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.
The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine receives an upgrade for the 2019 model year. The improved powertrain now offers a total output of 188 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine replaces the 3.5-liter V6 engine. The all-new powertrain offers 248 hp and earns better fuel economy than the outgoing V6. Both engines come mated to a continuously variable transmission.
Standard safety technologies are still rolling out across the Nissan lineup. All 2019 Altima models will feature standard Forward-Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking. Other available safety systems include Rear Cross-Traffic Warning, Rear Automatic Emergency Braking, and Lane Departure Warning. Higher trims see more standard safety systems too.
