The New York International Auto Show saw the debut of the all-new 2019 Nissan Altima! Combining new engines, additional technologies and an updated appearance, this sedan is the 6th generation of perhaps our most popular sedan.
If you take a look at the next-gen Altima, you’ll take note of the more professional and sophisticated look that the lower, longer and wider platform provides. Not to mention exterior design cues such as the distinctive V-motion grille, floating roof with slimmer pillars & boomerang lights with more streamlined headlights.
On the inside, you’ll enjoy the open-feeling cabin when you sit in the NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats enhanced with added bolstering & dual-density foam for more comfort. The instrument panel is also lower with a 7″ Advanced Drive Assist Display in front of the driver and 8″ color multi-touch display in the center console.
Other design changes include new light gray interior tones and the addition of the Scarlet Ember exterior paint color. But, there’s much more to the 2019 Nissan Altima than the design.
Meet ProPILOT Assist & Rear Automatic Braking
There are a couple of new technologies that you’ll enjoy in the 2019 Nissan Altima because they’ll make you feel safer on the roads in Westchester County NY and beyond. The first one is Nissan ProPILOT Assist, which was first introduced in the all-new Nissan LEAF.
ProPILOT Assist is a semi-autonomous driving system that helps with your steering, braking and acceleration during single-lane highway driving on roads like I-95, 287, the Hutch and Merritt Parkway. With a simple 2-button operation, you can maintain lane control, stay a set speed & distance to the car ahead of you and navigate stop & go traffic with ease so you can enjoy the ride.
That goes from when you hit the road to when you want to park. On either end of it, new-for-2019 Rear Automatic Braking aids in detecting stationary objects when backing up and will even automatically apply the brakes if a collision is imminent. This technology joins Nissan Safety Shield 360, which delivers front, side & rear safety monitoring and intervention, and also includes:
- Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
- Lane Departure Warning
- Radar-based Blind Spot Warning
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- High Beam Assist
Rev the 2 All-New Engines
The previous Altima’s engines are out and there are 2 improved replacements. First is the one that comes standard in the 2019 Nissan Altima: a 2.5L inline 4-cylinder engine. This might sound the same as the last engine, but it ups the capability to 188 hp & 180 lb/ft of torque and uses 80% new & redesigned parts that includes a Direct Injection Gasoline system to improve fuel economy.
The second engine that replaces the 3.5L V6 will be the 2.0L Variable Compression Turbo (VC-Turbo) engine. Available on the Altima SR and Platinum FWD models, the VC-Turbo combines 4-cylinder fuel economy with performance that’s almost equal to that of a V6 measuring in at an impressive 248 hp and 273 lb/ft of torque.
The 2019 Nissan Altima will be available at our dealership serving White Plains NY in 5 trim levels: S, SR, SV, SL and all-new Platinum. Each of these will be available with the all-new All-Wheel Drive system for optimal traction and control during inclement weather that our area’s winters are known for.
