Nissan redesigned the 2019 Altima with high-tech features and remarkable styling. It is trying to recapture the attention of buyers defecting to crossovers. The company unveiled this latest 6th generation Altima at the New York Auto Show earlier this year with much aplomb and amidst lots of cheers. With this redesign, it is trying to infuse fresh energy into the segment of family sedans. Many significant changes have been made to improve the technology and performance of this car. Here is everything that the 2019 Nissan Altima will bring to the table.
Nissan has anticipated competing with brands like Honda and Toyota with the 2019 version of the Altima. The company is giving a wide array of high-tech features and latest technologies to this vehicle. It is designed with ProPilot Assist which is an autonomous feature for lane keeping. With this feature, the company is trying to create space for introducing advanced self-driving techniques in the future. Also, the 2019 edition of the Altima boasts of Safety Shield 360 which is a network of upgradeable technologies for safety monitoring and intervention along with several other safety features.
An Improved Engine
The sixth-generation Nissan Altima is redesigned with two new engines. Both of these engines have been designed to reduce their footprint and take up less space under the hood. It comes with a variable compression turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine cranking up the power of up to 248 hp with torque of 273 pound-feet. The company will also offer a newly designed 2.5-liter inline DOHC four-cylinder engine up to 188 hp and torque of 180 pound-feet.
All-Wheel Drive Feature
Nissan continues with its tech onslaught in the 2019 Altima by introducing an All-Wheel Drive feature that directly pits Altima against the Ford Fusion. The company has recalibrated this new version for better performance. It has used the AWD technology of the Rogue crossover which happens to be the best-selling car from Nissan. With this revolutionary feature, the Japanese automaker is expecting to boost the sales of the Altima even in the cold weather markets where crossovers and SUVs are preferred over family sedans.
With the 2019 Nissan Altima, the company has presented a sophisticated cabin that replaces traditional chrome embellishment with matte accents. It features a lower dash top to create an open and airy ambiance. The instrument panel is classy and minimalist. Also, this design has minimum clutter as the central stack controls are housed in a fixed 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen that comes with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. It also has a dual-zone automatic interface for climate control and 7.0-inch TFT multi-information display for the driver.
This redesign is completely reinventing the styling of the Nissan Altima. It has a larger V-motion grille which is an improved version of Nissan’s trademark grille design. The headlamps and taillights are trendier and more sophisticated in this sedan. It has a sporty stance and the wheelbase is larger by 1.9 inches in this car.
These are the premium features and capabilities that the 2019 Nissan Altima will bring forth for the existing and new admirers of family sedans.
