The 2019 Nissan Altima

March 25th, 2019 by

The 2019 model is strutting its way into the new year with a lighter and more rigid structure, an upgraded emergency braking system and all the connectivity the entire family needs. While the interior of the vehicle was designed to be more spacious, there were also some changes under the hood with the offer of all-wheel drive and the SR and Platinum models coming with the option of a Turbo Four engine.

We wanted to share some of the other highlights of the brand new 2019 Nissan Altima.

Keeping You Connected

NissanConnect Services brings the latest and greatest in modern technology to this vehicle. This keeps you connected no matter where you go. The following are some of the capabilities of the NissanConnect service:

Intelligent Mobility allows for the driver to speak commands while driving or there is the option to use a touchscreen while parked. The system is compatible with either an Android or iPhone by just plugging in. Android Auto allows the driver to use Google Maps or Google Play with voice commands. For the iPhone, Apple Carplay enables all the features of the phone by simply speaking what you need to Siri or toggling through screens.

The Door to Door Navigation system is adaptable with a mobile phone and brings the maps to the vehicle screen. The features of the navigation system include real time traffic, voice recognition, Bluetooth and will even send walking directions to your phone if you need to park a distance from your destination.

Remote Access allows you to lock and unlock your car with the tap of the screen on your mobile phone or by talking commands while you’re walking. The system can sync with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and a smartwatch too. With this feature, you will never lose your car in a parking lot or ramp again. You can use the car finder feature or access and turn on the horn and lights from your phone as well.

This vehicle is certainly not lacking USB ports. There are two regular ports along with two USB type-C plug-ins too. There is plenty of access for everyone in the vehicle to stay charged up.

Enhanced Sound System

The 2019 Nissan Altima is outfitted with Sirius XM satellite radio. To enhance the listening experience in the vehicle, the Bose Premium Audio System is an available option to car buyers. Once the music starts playing, the speaker lights flash and come alive. The lights continue to dance with the music. There are nine speakers strategically located throughout the front and rear of the car and the noise cancellation system adds to the listening pleasure.

Intelligent Climate Control

Everybody in the car can stay comfortable with Nissan’s Intelligent Climate Control. Each of the front seats of the car has its own temperature controls and vents. The front seats are heated and the controls have been enhanced to get warm and cozy much faster than previous models. If you forget your gloves in the middle of winter, there’s no need to worry because the steering wheel is heated too.

Flexible Space and Seating

There is plenty of space to load up and transport luggage, long or bulky materials or whatever you need to transport. The rear seats feature a 60/40 split, allowing the back seats to fold down for more storage room. The spacious trunk measures 15.4 cubic feet and can add to the amount of cargo space. Aside from moving things, the vehicle is great for long road trips too. When it’s time to take a break from the open road, both the driver and passenger can take a rest with the reclining seats.

Safety Features

This all new model of the Altima was designed with keeping the safety of drivers and their passengers in mind. The manufacturer did this with Nissan Intelligent Mobility. This feature monitors all sides of the vehicle and can sense when there is a car getting too close. The system can enable automatic emergency braking, a rear cross-traffic alert, rear automatic braking, warnings when leaving your lane, blind spot warnings and turn on high beam assistance.

ProPILOT Assist alleviates stress on the drive, especially during busy traffic times. This feature is able to keep a safe distance from the car in front of it in heavy traffic. It also senses when traffic slows suddenly and reduces the speed or even brings the car to a complete stop, if needed. ProPILOT keeps the vehicle centered in its own lane when driving on straight roads or lightly curved roads.

Passengers are kept safe with 10 air bags throughout the vehicle. There are front and rear seat air bags as well as knee-mounted bags on the front passenger and driver seats. The rollover sensor can activate the roof-mounted air bags.

The advanced braking system senses and adjusts to the passenger load in the vehicle. It also applies maximum braking in the front and rear when danger is detected.

The backseat is equipped with Nissan’s LATCH system to ensure the utmost safety when it comes to children. The system is compatible with certain designs of child safety seats.

With the introduction of the world’s first VC-turbo engine, the vehicle gets approximately 25 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. This model is also the manufacturer’s first all-wheel drive sedan. The features list of the 2019 Nissan Altima could go on and on.
