This New Nissan Altima Design Sketch Has us Pretty Excited

  This New Nissan Altima Design Sketch Has us Pretty Excited The Car Guide will attend the 2018 New York International Auto Show’s media days (March 28-29) and one of the new products we’re looking forward to seeing in the flesh—well, metal—is the sixth generation of the Nissan Altima , which will make its global debut as a 2019 model. Yes, we know it’s just a midsize sedan, but from the official design sketch released by the automaker, there is reason to be excited, for sure. The exterior look is bold and very expressive, hinting at the future of Nissan’s sedan design language. In fact, we’ll see an evolution of the fantastic Nissan Vmotion 2.0 Concept that captured everyone’s attention in Detroit last year.

New Nissan Altima Confirmed With All - Wheel Drive . In response to the desires of buyers in key northern U.S. market regions, Intelligent All - Wheel Drive will be offered for the first time ever on the Altima .

2019 Nissan Altima , WITH Intelligent All Wheel Drive . Nissan Altima proPILOT Assist comes standard on SV, SL, and Platinum trims, as does new assistance tech like Rear Automatic Braking and Traffic Sign Recognition.

As far as other mechanical improvements are concerned, we expect the new Altima to also gain a thoroughly revised continuously variable transmission, which should replace the much criticized transmission of the current generation model.

On the tech front, some features from Nissan’s ProPilot semi-autonomous driving system would probably be made available as optional equipment, as well as the advanced Rear Door Alert system.

Unfortunately, powertrain options remain a complete mystery at this point. Nissan hasn’t suggested anything, but we assume the new Altima will keep its relatively large naturally aspirated engines, in contrast to what competitors like the Ford Fusion are offering.
