Find More Capabilities and Options for the 2019 Nissan Altima

There is a lot that drivers love about the Nissan Altima and the newest model year brings even more to these drivers. Most notably, the 2019 Nissan Altima can include all-wheel drive to help it give you the best traction in any condition.

While there are many different models that also offer all-wheel drive - the Subaru Legacy, Ford Fusion, and many luxury models - the 2019 Nissan Altima becomes a much stronger competitor to some of its more direct rivals. The Honda Accord and Toyota Camry have always been the ones to be lined up with the Nissan Altima, but they don't have such strong footing after the newest update for the Altima.

The lineup for the 2019 Nissan Altima is rather different now, including the: S, SR, SR VC-Turbo, SV, SL, Platinum, Platinum VC-Turbo, and Edition ONE VC-Turbo.


A New Kind of Performance

There are two new engine options for the 2019 Nissan Altima, one that is rather updated and one that is all-new with unique functionality. The standard engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that makes up to 188 horsepower and up to 180 pound-feet of torque, getting you up to 39 MPG on the highway. We see this engine to be perfect for commuters who aren't looking for the most exciting engine, but rather the most practical.

When we say the new engine has unique functionality we really mean it, it is capable of changing the length of your pistons for an exciting performance as well as impressive fuel economy. When you press on the gas for acceleration, the pistons will extend for more power from the 2.5-liter Variable Compression Turbo (VC-Turbo) engine, making up to 248 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. If you gently ease onto the gas, the assembly compresses for a more fuel-efficient ride, offering up to 34 MPG highway.

Every trim comes equipped with an Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) for a smooth and controlled ride.

A Look to the Inside

There are many standard features of the 2019 Altima that drivers can enjoy. With an eight-way power adjustable driver's seat, two USB Ports, and NissanConnect coming on every trim, you are getting more than just the basics on the base model. The eight-inch touchscreen display offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration to help connect you to the media that you might be looking for during any drive.

Upgrading affords you many more options, some that are sportier and some that are more luxurious. You can find options like Ambient Interior Lighting, a power sliding glass moonroof, a premium audio system, and Nissan Door-to-Door Navigation with traffic alerts. With the variety of trims that are available to you, we are sure you can find one with everything that you could want.

Every trim offers up to 100.8 cubic feet of passenger volume and 15.4 cubic feet of space in the trunk.

Intelligent and Advanced Features

Nissan Intelligent features are exactly as advertised: intelligent. Even the remote start system can come with an Intelligent Climate Control system that evens the outside and inside temperatures to always keep you feeling the best. The smartest of the systems come from driver assistance features in the Nissan Intelligent Mobility suite. The Safety Shield 360-degrees includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Rear Automatic Braking, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and High Beam Assist. While all this is exciting, it is still just the beginning.

Available Nissan ProPILOT Assist helps make your commute much better by simply pushing a button. You will be able to stay a set distance from the vehicle in front of you with an adaptive cruise control system and can keep you centered in your lane, even when you are going around curves. You will never feel more confident than when you are behind the wheel of a fully-equipped 2019 Nissan Altima.


Updates Make the 2019 Nissan Altima a Top Contender

The Nissan Altima has always been a model that would go toe-to-toe with the best, but the newest updates gives it more than ever before. Where the Altima was once an equal to the Accord and Camry, it is now a few steps ahead by offering more advanced and capable features. The Altima does more than just put a smile on your face when you see it in your driveway, it makes you remember that there is nothing else you would rather drive on a daily basis.
