The Altima has always been a very attractive sedan. With its sharp design and a low-slung profile, the Altima looked like a car well ahead of its time. It’s true that it gets lost in the fiercely competitive market mostly lead by known brands, but that doesn’t mean it is a failure.

The latest generation of the Altima is the most advanced version of this car that we have ever seen, and it is undoubtedly going to have your interest once you get to know it more. And that is exactly what we will try to do in this story; here is our first impression of the 2019 Nissan Altima.


Exterior

The Altima continues to make us fall in love with it with its looks. We can’t applaud Nissan enough about the gorgeous, dynamic, and sporty design of the Altima. The front of the car features very attractive and striking LED headlamps. Just like the rest of the car, they too have got a very sharp design and lines. Even the LED DRLs are the same. Combine these elements with the huge blacked out grille and Nissan’s V-motion design and things get even better. And if this isn’t enough for you, Nissan has made even the bonnet or hood of the Altima as sporty and muscular as possible.

The side profile of the Altima is going to make you fall for it even more. Its low-slung stance and a stretched out wheelbase makes this 4-door sedan one of the best looking ones out there. The sharp and deep lines continue to leave their presence on the doors and go till the rear end. The floating roof-like design enhances the premium and sporty character of the car. Then comes the beautiful alloy wheels. We don’t think there could have been any other design that would have suited the Altima this good.


Moving towards the rear end of the car, we have got large LED two-piece combination tail lights. Similar to the headlamps, these also have got a sharp design and suits the sporty nature of the car perfectly. The tailgate and the rear bumper are also very aggressive. There is even a diffuser. Overall, the Nissan Altima has got a very aerodynamic efficient design that also looks great.


Interior

The Altima’s cabin is a luxury place to be in. We can’t think of any negatives about it. And we’re sure that your first impression about this cabin would be nothing but ‘wow’. The sportiness of the exterior is carried over inside. The 3-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel feels good to hold and somehow encourages you to drive enthusiastically. The instrument cluster behind it is well put together. The dashboard layout is exceptional and ergonomically designed. The seats are very well bolstered and provide a good amount of comfort and there is generous space for all the occupants. You get to pick the interior theme from many available options. We also have a large floating infotainment touchscreen setup that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility is also a very advanced system that is integrated with the car to make your life easier.


Engine

It comes mated to Nissan’s Xtronic CVT system that features dynamic step shifting, wider gear ratio coverage, and an adaptive shift controller. This combination of engine and transmission provides a spirited driving experience without sacrificing fuel economy.


Safety features

Well, this was our first impression of the Nissan Altima. And to be honest, we aren’t surprised because our expectations from this car were already pretty high. And the Altima didn’t let us down. Nissan continues to show us what it is capable of as a brand and how much expertise it has in the automobile industry.
