The Nissan Altima — which made its debut over 25 years ago, has long been an excellent choice for the midsize sedan segment, with its fun-to-drive nature, comfortable and roomy cabin, excellent reliability, and affordable price tag. For the 2019 model-year, Nissan gave the Altima a thorough overhaul, with a more athletic look, improved performance, and many new features.
2019 Nissan Altima Design Highlights
The 2019 Nissan Altima takes styling cues from the Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept, with its athletic stance and sporty proportions. It exudes an element of sleekness with its lower center of gravity and greater width and height compared to the outgoing model — and with a coefficient of drag of only 0.26, the new Altima is very aerodynamic. Exterior highlights include the V-motion grille, LED projector headlights and fog lights, and a moonroof.

New Engines for the 2019 Nissan Altima
The 2019 Nissan Altima offers a choice of two new engines, with increases in output over the engines in the 2018 Altima. The standard 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine generates 188 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque, while the available 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine delivers 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.
2019 Nissan Altima ProPILOT Assist
An exciting new feature for the 2019 Nissan Altima is the ProPILOT Assist, which uses a camera, radar, and sensors to intuitively aid the driver with such things as acceleration, braking, steering, and staying in the lane. Also, for optimum traction, the 2019 Nissan Altima offers the available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, which is a first for an Altima model.
