Model Preview

The Altima has long been a stylish vehicle, and the fifth-generation model was arguably the most stunning. For 2019, Nissan is re-doing the popular Altima, giving it an updated look with new powertrain options and a new platform.

Other than its name and the class it competes in, the 2019 Altima will share very little with the current model. It will boast a brand-new design that includes an aggressive V-Motion grille, wraparound headlights, sharper body lines, new taillights, a floating roof, and much more. Many of these cues, according to Nissan, came from the 2018 LEAF.

Inside, the Altima will take on a clean, uncluttered look with its three-spoke steering wheel, a limited number of buttons, and standard 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Its horizontal lines will widen this midsize sedan’s cabin, and its upscale materials will make it look like a more premium vehicle. Standard tech features inside will include NissanConnect, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

2019 Nissan Altima

A new version of Nissan’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque – increases of 9 hp and 1 lb.-ft. – will be the standard engine in every 2019 Altima.

Buyers can also opt for a 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine with 248 hp and 273 lb.-ft. of torque in the SR and Platinum trims. This turbocharged engine will replace the dated 3.5-liter V6. For the first time ever, Nissan will offer the Altima with offer all-wheel drive, but it will only be available on 2.5-liter models.

We have a good bit of time before the IIHS tests the 2019 Altima for safety, but we expect it to perform well, as it’ll have available automatic emergency braking (front and rear), lane-departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, and automatic high beams. ProPILOT Assist, which is a hands-on, single-lane assisted driving feature, will come standard on SV, SL, and Platinum trims.

Pricing & Release Date

Nissan plans to have the 2019 Altima in showrooms in the fall of 2018.

Pricing remains unknown at this point, but look for a mild price hike over the current model, which ranges from $24,145 to $34,515 (destination fees included).

Key competitors will include the Honda Accord, Ford Fusion, and Toyota Camry.
