You're looking for a new car. The one you have now is too old or outdated.
The new 2019 Nissan Altima looks promising, but you're not 100 percent positive it's the car for you. Keep on reading for 10 reasons why you should choose the 2019 Altima.
1. Fuel Efficiency
The new generation of the Altima has opted for a more fuel efficient engine.
The base engine returns 28 mpg when driving through a city and 39 mpg while on the highway. Models with all-wheel drive return 25 or 26 mpg in the city and 35 or 36 on the highway.
Those with the new VC-Turbo engine return 25 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. This turbocharged engine can adjust its compression ratio in order to optimize fuel efficiency.
2. Strong Engine
The base engine is a 188-horsepower, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine with 180 pound-feet of torque. The other engine option is the VC-Turbo.
The VC-Turbo engine has 248-HP and 280 pound-feet of torque. It's 2 liters and a four-cylinder engine. You can reach 60 mph in just 5.8 seconds.
The 2019 Altima has continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), which mimics the smoothness of a conventional automatic transmission. The droning sounds that usually come with CVTs are no more.
All-wheel drive is a brand new option.
3. ProPilot Assist
ProPilot Assist is an innovative safety feature that helps decrease the driver's workload so the ride is semiautomatic.
It can stop the car when you're getting close to another car or traffic, and it keeps you in the center of the lane as you drive. Automatic rear braking is also available.
ProPilot Assist is offered starting at the SV model.
4. Spacious Cabin
The Altima's cabin seats 5 passengers. The seating is large enough for 5 adults and leaves them ample knee and head room.
The front seats are Zero Gravity. These types of seats were inspired by NASA and designed to prevent fatigue.
The standard is cloth upholstery and an eight-way power adjustable driver's seat.
Other options include leather upholstery, memory settings for the driver's seat, heated front seats, and a heated leather steering wheel.
5. Great Infotainment System
Since the last Altima generation, the touch screen has been bumped up 5 inches to an 8-inch screen. The car comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
It has an easy-to-use and clutter-free interface with multiple temperature and audio controls. The push-start button and review camera are standard.
The standard audio system has six speakers, and a Bose nine-speaker system is also available. The Altima has Bluetooth, satellite radio, voice recognition, and four USB ports.
Upgrades and other models include the nine-speaker system, a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a surround view monitor.
6. A Smooth Ride
A new tuned suspension and chassis system give drivers a stable ride. Handling has also been improved. The car's wider stance makes it better a turning corner and going down curvy roads.
For a more athletic car, you may be more interested in the SR model. It has paddle shifters and a sport-tuned suspension.
7. A Safe Ride
Experience a safe ride in the 2019 Altima with its many safety measures to assist you when necessary.
Safety features include airbags for the driver and passenger, front and rear head airbags, front and rear side airbags, 4-wheel ABS, 4-wheel disc brakes, brake assist, electronic stability control, child safety locks, traction control, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.
Other options include pedestrian detection, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, and traffic sign recognition.
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash test ratings were all "good" ratings except for headlights, which was given an "acceptable" rating, and front crash prevention, which was given "superior" results.
8. Six Models to Choose From
The six trim options are the S, SR, SV, SL, Platinum, and Edition One.
Base S Model
This trim has enough standard features to please the average car shopper: a large 8-inch touch screen, four USB ports, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, six-speaker audio system, voice recognition, cloth seats, Bluetooth, eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, rearview camera, push-button start, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.
The 2019 Altima SR has paddle shifters, a sport-tuned suspension, a leather steering wheel, sport seats, rear cross traffic alert, and blind spot monitoring. The VC-Turbo engine is an option.
The SR Premium package includes a moonroof, heated outside mirrors, LED turn signals, and heated front seats.
The SV trim includes ProPilot Assist, heated front seats, fog lamps and high-beam assist, LED turn signals, dual-zone automatic climate control, lane departure warning, and pedestrian detection.

The Altima Platinum comes with a 360-degree camera with moving object detection and memory settings for the driver's seat. The VC-Turbo engine is also an option.
Edition One is only slightly different from the Platinum trim. The turbocharged engine is standard for this trim, and, along with all of its features, makes it the most expensive 2019 Altima model.
