2019 Nissan Altima

Back for a sixth generation, the Nissan Altima has a new look and new capabilities. The 2019 Nissan Altima comes with updated features and perks inside the cabin. Under the hood, you’ll find two entirely new engines, including a world-first: a Variable Compression Turbo.

“The new Altima follows the new Nissan LEAF in embodying the vision of Nisan Intelligent Mobility, making our cars more desirable by re-defining how they’re driven, powered, and integrated into society,” explained Jose Munoz, Nissan’s chief performance officer. “Our goal with the all-new Altima is to re-energize the sedan segment — in terms of design, driving feel and in making advanced technologies available and affordable for everyone.”

When it comes to advancing technology, driver-assist features are a priority. Automakers across the globe are incorporating driver-assist features, including Nissan. The 2019 Altima comes with ProPILOT Assist. This system is a driver-assist suite that gives drivers a glimpse at the future of automotive. Channeling the best parts of autonomous driving, the ProPILOT Assist system helps you maintain your lane on the highway, keep a safe distance from the cars in front of you, and stay focused on the road.

Under the hood, the 2019 Nissan Altima is truly making strides. This year’s model comes with a world-first production Variable Compression Turbo engine, earning the Altima 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The 2019 Altima also comes with a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, giving off a more modest 188 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. As another first, the 2019 Nissan Altima offers Intelligent All-Wheel Drive.

With its complete redesign, this year’s Altima is practically a new model. The 2019 Nissan Altima is available in five trims: S, SR, SV, SL, and Platinum.
