2019 Nissan Titan Gets New Infotainment And Audio System

2019 Nissan Titan

Since its recent redesign, the Nissan Titan and the Nissan Titan XD remained unchanged but for the model year 2019, the trucks are getting mild updates that will make them more comfortable to drive with passengers receiving the bulk of the benefits.

Previously, only a 5.0-inch touchscreen came as standard to all models. It’s now a 7.0-inch touchscreen and the Titan will also get the Apple CarPlay and the Android Auto as standard for the first time. The trucks will also feature an additional USB media port, and two USB-A charge ports have been added to the PRO-4X, SL, and Platinum Reserve trims.

For the audio system, Nissan will give drivers the chance to get a new Fender audio system with a 485-watt, nine channel amplifier. It will come standard on the Titan Crew Cab SL, SL Midnight Edition, and Platinum Reserve, and optional on the Crew Cab and King Cab PRO-4X.

On the XD, the Fender audio system is standard on the Crew Cab SL and Platinum grades and optional on the PRO-4X Crew Cab and King Cab. The audio system has 12 speakers, except on the King Cab trim which has only 10.

There are two paint colors that have been added to the exterior choices: Moab Sunset and Midnight Pine. There’s the Rear Door Alert, too. The system reminds drivers to check their backseats before leaving the car lest they forgot something. This feature is now standard on King Cab and Crew Cab versions of both the Titan and Titan XD.

Both trucks are still offering the same 5.6-liter V8 engine while the XD adds another with its 5.0-liter V8 turbodiesel. There was a rumor way back that Nissan plans to add a V6 engine option to the lineup, but there’s still no word if the offer of a smaller engine still stands.

The 2019 Nissan Titan and Titan XD will go on sale this fall.

2019 Audi SQ2 Unveiled Ahead of the Paris Motor Show

Audi’s smallest crossover has been unveiled ahead of the Paris Motor Show set to happen next month. The 2019 Audi SQ2 is packing more power in its tiny body, thanks to an engine borrowed from the S3 with performance-increasing additives.


Up front, the updated SQ2 gets an eight-slat single-frame grille with LED headlights on either side. The taillights, by the way, are made of LED, too. It rides on two pairs of 19-inch tires in top-spec while S Sport suspension is also part of the update. The SQ2 is 20mm shorter than the standard Q2. It measures 4,210mm in length and has a wheelbase of 2,594mm, allowing for a more spacious cabin.


Speaking of the cabin, the SQ2 has a center armrest, sport seats, a sport multifunction steering wheel with paddles, and heads-up display. The seats are wrapped in a combination of leather and fabric while the dashboard and the door panels get silver inserts.

There’s also a 12.3-inch screen for the digital instrument panel, 8.3-inch MMI touchscreen that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and comes with navigation, voice control, a Wi-Fi hotspot for passengers, and a 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.


What’s really interesting about the 2019 SQ2 is what’s under the hood. It has a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, TFSI petrol engine that produces 296 horses and 295 pound-feet of torque. Its Quattro all-wheel-drive system is linked to a dual-clutch, seven-speed S Tronic transmission.

This setup powers the 2019 Audi SQ2 to go from 0 to 62mph in just 4.8 seconds before reaching the top speed of 155mph.

The new SQ2 is set to be showcased at the 2018 Paris Motor Show next week. Deliveries in the UK will start in the first quarter of 2019. In the United States? There’s no word on that just yet.
