Nissan's all-new 2019 Altima features advanced intelligent mobility safety; enhanced driving performance and available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive; plus two new engines, including the company's world's first Variable Compression Turbo.
In response to the desires of buyers, Intelligent All-Wheel Drive will be offered for the first time ever on the Altima. The AWD system is available in all trim levels equipped with the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine. The system uses an advanced torque split control strategy that automatically redistributes torque to the wheels (0:100 front up to 50:50 front-to-rear) according to road and driving conditions.
Replacing the previous-generation Altima's 3.5-liter V6 engine is the world's first production-ready variable compression turbo inline 4-cylinder -- which generates the performance of some V6 gasoline engines but with 4-cylinder level fuel economy.
Designated as the VC-Turbo, the new technology continuously transforms the engine characteristics, providing both dynamic and efficient performance.
Standard on all grade levels is the new 2.5-liter 4-cylinder direct injection engine, which is rated at 188 horsepower (versus the previous 2.5-liter's 179 hp) and 180 lb-ft of torque (versus the previous 177 lb-ft).
All 2019 Altimas benefit from a range of enhanced suspension, steering and chassis control systems. Key suspension changes include the first Altima application of monotube rear shocks, added suspension reinforcements to improve vehicle response without impacting harshness, and suspension geometry adjustments to improve steering feedback.
Inside, the 2019 Altima interior offers a near-luxury feel in both design and materials - marked by the lightweight, layered and more horizontal "gliding wing" instrument panel and high-contrast colors and trim.
ProPILOT Assist is the foundation for the autonomous vehicles of the future, helping drivers stay centered in the lane, navigate stop-and-go traffic, maintain a set vehicle speed and maintain a set distance to the vehicle ahead.
