The 2019 Nissan Altima: Not Your Parents’ Bland Sedan
July 22 2019, Regina Nissan
The award-winning Altima represents the ultimate in Nissan sedan design, power, and efficiency. With its forward-looking exterior and reliability, this vehicle is growing in popularity throughout Canada. Four attractive trims lead the charge for the 2019 Nissan Altima: S, SV, Platinum, and Edition One.
The 2019 Nissan Altima Has a Remarkable Exterior
When you see the latest Nissan Altima for the first time, you’ll see why the sporty and sophisticated exterior is a favourite on many lists. Nissan adds plenty of standard features to each trim, too. The S trim has all-weather tires that enhance the all-wheel drive system. The SV incorporates upgraded equipment such as alloy wheels, a variable-control sunroof, and special auto glass that reduces exterior noise.
Finally, the racing-inspired Platinum flashes with 19” styled wheels, while the Edition One adds many exterior accents to please even the most discerning tastes. You can also choose from a variety of external options.
Power to Match the 2019 Nissan Altima’s Looks
Nissan met the challenge of matching the right engine with the sporty looks of the Altima. Each trim includes a 2.5-litre four-cylinder direct injection engine that creates an impressive 182 horsepower. Moreover, the 178 lb-ft of torque is substantial for a vehicle in this class. However, the extra boost in power won’t translate to a boost in costs at the pump. The Altima consumes only 6.5 litres of fuel per 100 km on the highway and 9.1 in the city. This fuel efficiency is supported by a continuously-variable transmission that doesn’t use traditional gears, so it reduces fuel consumption up to 15%.
Each Altima trim has plenty of standard interior features, ranging from advanced driving technology to plush seats. All models include a driver-assist display located between key dashboard gauges. This system relays important information while keeping your eyes on the road.
The 2019 Altima is loaded with safety features that keep you and your family out of harm’s way. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and an 8” colour display provide entertainment. If you upgrade to the SV, you will gain a HomeLink garage door opener, additional climate control zones, and optional voice recognition. The Platinum and Edition One levels include more interior heated features.
