.The Nissan Altima is a cozy, elegant and sporty mid-size sedan which has become very popular especially among families and it is also one of the best selling sedans. The carmaker has just released the new 2018 Nissan Altima with just a few upgrades but the latest news indicates that they are also planning the newest version of this model. The future Altima should debut as the 2019 model which will this time arrive with a hybrid engine too. So, this time we are talking about the all-new 2019 Nissan Altima Hybrid.
The Nissan Altima delivers a very attractive and sharp exterior styling, comfortable interior and good safety ratings. It enjoys the reputation of being a reliable and safe car and it features several engines to choose from including the new hybrid powertrain. The 2018 model year has brought some small changes which included more safety equipment. So, the automatic emergency braking and intelligent forward collision warning are now standard on all trim levels. As well, the top trim has also gotten a standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and intelligent cruise control.
The 2019 model year has been spotted wearing heavy camouflage. However, despite the disguise, we could see some changes on the lights and the grille. Inside the cabin, we can expect larger screen and more equipment. In the engine department, like we have said previously, it will feature a hybrid engine in addition to the traditional units.
2019 Nissan Altima Hybrid engine and performance
Under the hood of the upcoming 2019 Nissan Altima Hybrid will most likely be placed a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder unit in a combination with an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery. However, the exact output of this unit is still not available. The engine should continue to pair with a continuously variable transmission. The front-wheel drive should be standard while this time there should also be an optional all-wheel drive system.
Design of exterior and interior
The newest 2019 Nissan Altima Hybrid has been spotted under the heavy camouflage which means that this time we will see some adjustments, particularly on the front fascia. The front end will most likely feature a revised V-shaped grille and more angular headlamps. The whole body will generally get sharper lines and will get more modern, aggressive and attractive appearance. The rear end could also get new taillights and a reshaped bumper.
The interior of the 2019 Nissan Altima Hybrid will be roomy, comfortable and very modern. The Altima is able to welcome up to five passengers although the four would feel much cozier. The seats are covered with the standard cloth while the leather upholstery is also available. The base model will feature a standard 5.0-inch touchscreen. But the larger 7.0-inch display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay will also be offered.
The standard equipment will include power windows, locks and mirrors, Bluetooth, a rearview camera, keyless entry, audio system with speakers, and steering-wheel audio controls. The higher trims will add Bose audio system, a power passenger seat, blind-spot monitors, remote start, navigation, adaptive cruise control and so on.
Release date and price
The 2019 Nissan Altima Hybrid should enter the showrooms at the end of 2018. As for the price, we still don’t have any official information.
