The all-new 2019 Nissan Altima has been unveiled at the New York International Auto Show in NYC and wow, has it made a bold first impression!
As the debuting model of this sedan’s 6th generation, the 2019 Altima has been redesigned to provide a more fun yet sophisticated appearance outside and a more open feeling inside the cabin. Besides the new Scarlet Ember exterior paint color option, some of the changes you’ll notice right away include:
- Distinctive V-motion grille
- Floating roof with slimmer pillars
- Boomerang lights with more streamlined headlights
- New light gray tones for the interior
- NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats with dual-density foam & comfort-adding bolstering
- Lower instrument panel with 7″ Advanced Drive Assist Display & 8″ multi-touch color center display
But, there’s more to the Altima than its good looks. The technology you can get makes it the first step towards the future of Nissan vehicles designed to make you feel completely in control at the wheel while reducing fuel economy.
What’s New For the 2019 Nissan Altima?
Next-Gen Safety Tech
When you get behind the wheel, you want to feel at ease. And the 2019 Nissan Altima does just that thanks to the implementation of the Nissan ProPILOT Assist system that was first introduced in the all-new Nissan LEAF. ProPILOT Assist is designed to make your Altima a semi-autonomous vehicle by steering, braking and accelerating automatically in single-lane highway driving.
That makes riding on busy roads like the NJ Turnpike, Garden State Parkway and I-80 even easier by maintaining lane control, navigating stop & go traffic and set your vehicle’s speed & distance with the car ahead of you with the press of 2 buttons. This is the first step towards a fully self-driving car.
In addition, a new feature joins Nissan Safety Shield 360: Rear Automatic Braking. This technology detects stationary objects as you back out of a parking space or driveway and then will automatically apply the brakes if you’re about to hit something.
The other Nissan Safety Shield 360 technologies that give you front, side & rear safety monitoring & intervention include:
- Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection (front)
- High Beam Assist (front)
- Lane Departure Warning (side)
- Radar-based Blind Spot Warning (side)
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert (rear)
2 Engine Options
When you shop for the 2019 Nissan Altima at our dealership serving Paramus NJ, you can pick from 2 new engines. The first is an improvement on the popular 2.5L inline 4-cylinder engine, which has the same stats except it delivers more power (188 hp & 180 lb/ft of torque) and 80% new & redesigned parts like the Direct Injection Gasoline system for better fuel economy.
The other is a replacement of the 3.5L V6 that delivers almost equal power than a V6 (248 hp & 273 lb/ft of torque) yet the efficiency of a 4-cylinder engine. We’d like to introduce you to the 2.0L Variable Compression Turbo (VC-Turbo) engine that offers a compression ratio between 8:1 for high-performance driving and 14:1 for optimal efficiency.
2019 Nissan Altima shoppers in the Bergen County NJ and Rockland County NY area can choose from 5 trim levels: S, SR, SV, SL and the all-new top-of-the-line Platinum. Each of these models will be available in either FWD or new-for-2019 AWD that gives you superior traction and control in wet, snowy, slushy and icy road conditions.
The VC-Turbo engine is offered on the FWD versions of the SR & Platinum, while the 2.5L 4-cylinder is offered on all trims with FWD and AWD. Contact Ramsey Nissan today to learn more about this 6th-generation sedan!
