ABU DHABI: The Japanese automaker, Nissan has finally revealed the updated Altima at the recently held New York Auto Show.

Denis Le Vot, senior vice president, chairman of the management committee of Nissan North America, stated, “This new Altima builds on 25 years and more than 5.6 million Altima sales to date – but to us, this is just a starting point. That’s why we decided to shake up the midsize segment in terms of design, driving enjoyment, and technologies that are advanced and affordable.”

The 2019 Altima comes with two engine choices: a 2.5-litre in-line-four and an optional 2.0-litre turbo for the SR and Platinum variants. The 2.5-litre variant comes with an intelligent All-Wheel Drive, a first for the Altima, whereas, the 2.0-litre turbo comes only with a front-wheel drive. The new engines offer improvements in noise, vibration, and harshness, along with enhanced fuel economy and cleaner emissions.

Another new feature that has been introduced in this Nissan car is the Rear Automatic Braking. This feature helps the driver detect stationary objects when reversing the car up, and if necessary applies the brakes to help avoid a collision.

“We saw that the lack of available all-wheel drive has been a key factor in pushing the U.S. buyers who prefer sedans to compact SUVs,” said Le Vot. “Of the top three selling midsize sedans in the U.S., only Altima will offer all-wheel drive. We expect this to be a key sales driver, especially for customers in the northern part of the country.”

2019 Nissan Altima’s innovative design is said to be inspired by the award-winning Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept and definitely, it is attractive. Let's see how the updated sedan performs in the global market when launched.
