A look at the testing of the new 2019 Nissan Altima

We've already talked a lot about the 2019 Nissan Altima. More spacious, comfortable, refined and safe than ever, the new Altima also offers all-wheel drive for the first time.

It's no surprise, then, that it's been getting rave reviews from the trade press. Let's take a closer look.

True to the brand's most recent products, the 2019 Nissan Altima adopts a sharper silhouette that once again incorporates that "floating pillar" at the rear, but also a larger version of that "V" grille up front. It's all a matter of taste in this regard. However, I don't hate the new Altima's nose, as the large grille is better integrated than the one on the Maxima, for example. The slimmed-down headlights forced the designers to move the turn signals above the fog lights.

With this more muscular design, the edges on the sides stand out more, especially near the A-pillar at the base of the hood; it may even be a little too busy for some! At the back, the knife-edge marker lights give the car that increased width feel, while the diffuser adds a bit of sportiness to the whole.

Nissan offers two wheel sizes for its Canadian model: 17 inches on the S and SV models, and 19 inches on the Platinum and One Edition, the latter of which is limited to 250 units for the Canadian market - RPM


Power is more than adequate for the task at hand. The CVT transmission is as good and nimble as any modern continuously variable transmission. In terms of efficiency, the new Altima is very fuel efficient. The S and SV versions get 9.1 L/100 km city / 6.5 highway for a combined 7.9. The Platinum's figures are 9.3 / 6.7 / 8.1 respectively. These statistics downgrade those of the Subaru Legacy, and annihilate those of the all-wheel drive Ford Fusion.

Driving the new 2019 Nissan Altima is undeniably enjoyable. The new platform, with revised electric steering and a new suspension, is tuned for comfort, but not at the expense of driver engagement and satisfaction. It's the surprise and what impresses the most - EcoloAuto
