3 Things You Should Know About The 2019 Nissan Altima Spy Shots

2019 nissan altima (4)

There are new spy shots of the prototype for the next-generation Nissan Altima mid-sizer. The car will be due to arrive in showrooms in late 2018 as a 2019 model, and will represent the sixth generation of the Altima nameplate.

During the 2017 Detroit auto show earlier this year, the next-gen Altima was previewed through the Vmotion 2.0 concept car.

1. Design

If you have seen the concept, you’ll know that there are numerous elements from it that can now be seen in the production version of the car. There’s much you can see in the spy shots from Motor1 even though it’s in heavy camouflage. The prototype and even the production model both highlighted the angular headlights, V-shaped grille, and floating roof.

The interior showed that the new Altima will have a digital screen in the instrument cluster and a larger screen located at the top of the center stack. For those who still want the feel of touching something in their cars, there are physical knobs for functions such as controlling the volume and temperature.

2. Powertrain

There’s no word yet on what the Altima will come packed with. What we can expect is that a four-cylinder should be the base model while a more powerful option will be offered in the form of a turbocharged four-cylinder or a four-cylinder-based hybrid setup.

The gear selector in the new Altima will be similar with the current model. This means we can expect a CVT and a front-wheel-drive system. An all-wheel drive is still in question, though.

If you’re looking for more driver assistance tech, the Altima can offer that, too. The ProPilot will reportedly be available in the next-generation Altima, including the assistance to drivers in accelerating, braking, and steering in a single lane in a highway. There’s also parking assistance provided by the system.

3. Competition

The next-generation Altima is in direct competition with the Toyota Camry, the Chevrolet Malibu, the Subaru Liberty, the Ford Fusion, the Kia Optima, the Honda Accord, and the Hyundai Sonata.

Nissan has revealed the US pricing for its 2017 Altima, which is now on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide. It has a starting price of MSRP $22,500. The car is worth the same as the 2016 Altima 2.5 model. The figures released by the company are suggested retail prices, and do not include other fees and charges that the distributor might add.

According to reports, Altima remains to be Nissan’s most popular vehicle, leading sales in 2016 until August of this year. It has distributed 333,000 units last year, and more are expected in the coming months.

The 2017 Nissan Altima has seven models you can choose from. These are the 2.5 ($22,000), 2.5 S ($22,900), 2.5 SR ($24,470), 2.5 SV ($25,460), 2.5 SL ($28,570), 3.5 SR ($27,990), and 3.5 SL ($32,690) models. The five 2.5-liter models can produce a total of 182 horsepower, and has a 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine. The 3.5-liter models, on the other hand, can offer up to 270 horsepower on its 3.5-liter DOHC V6. All of the 2017 Altima models will come with an advanced Xtronic transmission.

Fuel economy in the 2017 Altima is on a soar again, and this will be evident once reviews come in. It has a standard fuel economy of 39 miles per gallon highway for the Altima 2.5-liter engine equipped models. That’s a full six miles advantage over the leading competitive model in the segment.

The features that are exclusive to the Nissan Altima models are: Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Easy-fill Tire Alert and NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats. As for safety shield technologies, Nissan is boasting of its Blind Spot Warning and Intelligent Cruise Control to Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

In terms of infotainment system, the new Nissan Altima has 7.0-inch displays, Siri Eyes Free (standard on all except the 2.5), NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps and NissanConnect Services Powered by SiriusXM® telematics (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately).
