2019 Nissan Altima
There is no better time to make the shift to buying a midsize sedan. As manufacturers continue to build upon their SUV and crossover lineup, they have also started to build midsize sedans that are roomier, sportier, and more fuel efficient. The Nissan Altima is no exception to this trend, and it brings some major changes for the 2019 model year, both inside and out.
The 2019 Altima has received a redesign, and Nissan has created a sportier look and feel for its midsize sedan. It is lower to better hug the road, and it’s longer and wider for more comfort and space. It also offers higher performance, thanks to a new turbo engine option. This 2.0-liter variable-compression turbocharger replaces the old V6 option with 236 horsepower, and an eye-opening 34 highway MPG. This ground-breaking variable compression technology is not available on any other car in the Altima’s class. The available all-wheel drive (not offered with the turbo engines) also sets the Altima apart from its peers (Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, and Kia Optima) that do not offer AWD at all.
2019 Nissan Altima Safety Features
Safety has always been a focal point for Nissan with all of its models, and it all begins with the Nissan Safety Shield, a comprehensive “Monitor, Respond, Protect” approach to preventing as many collisions as possible and responding to them when they can’t be avoided.
Standard safety features include 10 airbags, automatic emergency braking, and intelligent forward-collision warning. If you move up one trim level to the SR, you will receive cross-traffic alert and blind-spot warning. Higher trim levels add pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning, and the Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection is also available.
Technology Features on 2019 Altima
The redesigned Altima places the infotainment touch screen, climate controls, and audio control well within reach for the driver. The new infotainment system features both Apple Play and Android Auto, which are standard for the 2019 model year.
Last, the all-new Altima comes with two regular USB ports, and two of the new USB type-C ports (making it the only car in its segment to offer them), which are quickly replacing the older USB ports, as they deliver faster data delivery and charging power to your devices.
