In its almost 25 years, the Nissan Altima has gained a cult-like following—a well-rounded sedan offering sleek design, sporty performance, and Nissan’s signature innovation. With upgrades all around for 2019, the sixth-generation Altima is sure to go down as one of the best, and most capable iterations of this beloved model. Read on, and the team at West End Nissan will let you know why you should have the 2019 Nissan Altima at the top of your wish list.
While always an attractive vehicle, the 2019 Altima offers the most aggressive look the sedan has ever seen. Sharply cut headlights only begin to tell the story that the Altima’s sleek lines continue, a story you may be more used to hearing from luxury sports cars. A wide, athletic stance creates an imposing look, accented by the aerodynamic flourishes of the Altima’s skirts and front fascia. The brightly lit LED tail lights that have been a standard on the Altima remain for 2019—perfect for when you leave the other vehicles on the road in your wake.
Possessing a sleek look, the Altima needs more than a bit of power to back it up. Enter Nissan’s 2.5-litre Direct Injection DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine, offering 182 horses, 178 lb-ft of torque, and a Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS), that gives the Altima access to a wealth of power. Of course, straightaway power isn’t any good without control, especially on Alberta roads that are slippery more often than not, which is why Nissan offers its Intelligent All-Wheel Drive standard on the Altima. Combined with Nissan’s efficient Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission), and you’ve got top-end acceleration available at a moment’s notice.
Knowing you’ll want to keep your 2019 Altima looking beautiful, with all that power and agility likely leading to a bit of extra time spent on the accelerator, Nissan ensured that the sixth-generation Altima was one of the safest vehicles on the road, period. Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward-Collision Warning, Lane-Departure Warning, and Rear Cross-Traffic Warning are standard features that can’t guarantee you won’t get into an accident, but make it so difficult you’d almost have to go out of your way looking for fender-benders. The available ProPilot Assist system, and Safety Shield 360 Package, bring the Altima about as close to autonomous as you can get—without being a Silicon Valley tech billionaire.
Add in the stunning upgrades to the Altima’s interior, like NASA-designed Zero Gravity seats and an 8-inch touchscreen monitor, it should come as no surprise that the sixth-generation, 2019 Nissan Altima is the absolute best one yet. If you want to get in on the ground floor of what will surely end up an absolute cult-classic, call us or find your way down to West End Nissan and test drive the 2019 Altima.
