The 2019 Nissan Altima is a smart, well-equipped midsize sedan. It packs plenty of technology, safety, and efficiency into one vehicle, so it’s no surprise that Autotrader lauded it as one of the 12 best new cars for 2019. Here’s a look at what elevates the Altima above the crowd.

What’s new

The 2019 model year brought some refreshing change to the Nissan Altima. Along with a mid-cycle styling refresh and improved safety tech, the Altima gained available all-wheel drive and a 2.0-liter Variable Compression Turbo four-cylinder engine to replace its outgoing V6 engine.

Go for the heated outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators for both signature style and better visibility.
