2019 Nissan Altima Rumors
Once all the rumors about the 2019 Nissan Altima started emerging, many of them seemed unbelievable. There was no sense for them to update the car so much. This is by some standards a too extensive of an update to give a car as it features more changes than you would expect to see.
But since Nissan already announced that they are supposed to so something special, it was not such a surprise anymore. Additionally, the real reason behind the rumors was revealed once the car reached its final stages of development. In fact, rivals have been receiving more and more changes and the closest one particularly, Toyota Camry, is a completely different car.
This prompted the rivaling Japanese manufacturer to do the same for their one car. Thus we see the vehicle before us with the stacked update and changes that are given here.
Many Exterior Changes for the 2019 Nissan Altima
There are a lot of innovations for the exterior of the 2019 Nissan Altima. Almost everything but the hood has been changed. So now, there is a V-shaped grille in the front end of the car. The headlamps are replaced by some longer and slimmer ones. The bumper has gain new elements with different fog lamps. The center section bellow the grille also follows the V-shape design and manages to update the entire front side.
The rear end of the car actually does not have such big changes made for it. But it is still worthy of the changes that were made. The taillights are similar to before but come with new graphics. The trunk part received some new chrome elements and also a new spoiler. There are a couple of new creases added for the bumper and it helps it look a lot more crisper compared to last time.
The profile is completely intact. But this is not at all surprising as the current fifth-generation model has probably the finest profile out of all the recent Altima models. The belt line is very nice and the roof line is sporty and these are your basic elements of the vehicle’s profile. The changes that have been established here will help with the vehicle aerodynamics as it will reduce the drag coefficient from 0.29 to 0.26 Cd.
2019 Nissan Altima Dimension Changes
With all of the changes the 2019 Nissan Altima has received, the size is not one of them. They have firmly decided to keep the size of the car the same. There was no need to enlarge to car further and the D platform, which Nissan introduced for its fifth generation vehicles.
All in all, the full length of the car will still be 191.9 Inches while the wheelbase goes to 109.3 Inches. Overall width is 72.0 Inches and the height is 57.8 Inches. This still allows pretty convenient and more than acceptable interior numbers where the vehicle allows great interior comfort.
Newest Color Addition for the 2019 Nissan Altima
When it comes to new colors, the 2019 Nisan Altima is also going to provide some innovations in that department. But do not expect to get a slew of colors as we only have only one new one to look forward to. Besides the already featured colors which we saw before and with the previous car, the newly added one is Deep Blue Pearl. It sounds like a fabulous new addition which will update the vehicle more prominently and allow it a different new and attractive look.
What About the 2019 Nissan Altima Interior?
The interior of the 2019 Nissan Altima has received its fair share of updates. Although there were actually none needed. This car had one of the better interior ever seen in this segment. But the other models are not standing around with their hands folded, so this new face lifted model still needed to introduce some changes for the interior.
So now we have a completely redesigned center stack with added cup holders and a new steering wheel. The car also has the Zero Gravity seats which are now standard and have added softer new materials.
The SR trim actually expands with new gadgets such as added blue accents. You can see those on the steering wheel, seats, door panels and the leather on the steering wheel. Also offered is the a five- or seven-inch display that you can operate your NissanConnect SM with and also combine it with Mobile Apps such as NissanConnect Navigation with Mobile Apps.
Engine Specs of the 2019 Nissan Altima
Although much of the 2019 Nissan Altima has changed, the engine choices have not. They have decided to go for a reliable solution and did not really tamper with the choices of the engine. There are two ways that you can go, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder or a 3.5-liter V-6.
The first one produces 182 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque while the V-6 model makes 270 horsepower and 251 pound-feet of torque. Now added is a Xtronic CVT transmission which a better feel when shifting and greatly helps to improve the performance of this sedan vehicle.
0-60 mph and Top Speed Rates
With the engines of the 2019 Nissan Altima remaining the same, the specs have not changed drastically as well. This includes the acceleration from 0-60 mph and its top speed. The time needed to reach 60 mph from a standstill is estimated to still be at 7.5 seconds.
On the other hand, the top speed of the car is about 130 mph. We do not require anything more from this vehicle and it firmly shows where the vehicle is in the market based on its ability and specs. We feel that the newest engines and different capability is only going to be possible with the new generation which we are still not sure when it will come out.
Fuel Economy of the 2019 Nissan Altima
With a familiar set of engines available for the 2019 Nissan Altima, there are no changes this car needs for the fuel consumption. But with the use of new active grille shutters and also due to the higher compression ratio, the four cylinder engine is able to consume 39 mpg on the highway, improved form the 38 mpg the last time around. The city consumption still remains at 27 mpg and is much more favorable if we compare it to the highway stats. The combined rating is 26 mpg still and has not improved this year.
