Gulf Insider travels down to Dubai to test drive the all new 2019 Nissan Altima.
Nissan has recently unveiled their latest addition to the Altima line, creating a new standard of design, driving enjoyment, and technology within the mid-size sedan segment. The car is packed with power, sophistication, space, and security.
Comfort and Convenience
The 2019 Nissan Altima offers a larger and more sophisticated body compared to its predecessors. Its seats are upgraded with bolstering for improved holding and support. It has more room at the backseat and rear compartment. The all-new premium interior features a wide ‘gliding wing’ instrument panel which accentuates the exterior’s low cowl and hood, helping create an open, airy environment. The car also offers an 8-inch multitouch colour display for complete car entertainment (features Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™) and ease of driver control. Remote Engine Start System with Intelligent Climate Control adjusts temperature and airflow in the most efficient way to guarantee a cool car in a hot day or a warm one in cold ones. Its Drive-Assist Display can also be toggled through the screen and customized to show what info you choose to see. Bose Premium Audio System installed in the car boasts 9 speakers throughout the cabin providing richness and detail that puts you in the front row.
Nissan Intelligent Mobility Technologies
Cutting-edge Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies have been integrated into the 2019 Altima as standard. Nissan Intelligent Mobility responds to the world around you in real time, offering incredible assistance to the driver. Make every move with greater awareness and get a little help when you need it. Its features include High Beam Assist which automatically switches to low or high beam headlights based on the vehicles and terrain ahead. Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection uses forward facing radar and camera technology to track vehicles and crossing pedestrians. Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Blind Spot Warning warns the driver from drifting in lanes, approaching vehicles, and it’s blindspots. All of the features warns the driver with visual, audible, or haptic signals. Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility technology also includes Intelligent Around View Monitor which uses 4 cameras to give a virtual composite 360° bird’s-eye view of your Altima’s position. On-screen help gives a headsup when detecting moving objects near your vehicle.
Power and Efficiency
The 2019 Nissan Altima has the world’s first production variable compression turbo engine. It is able to give turbocharged power that pushes you back in your seat or efficiency in conserving fuel, even in city streets. This significant breakthrough enables the VC-turbo for seamless compression ratio, delivering the performance of a much larger powerplant with fuel efficiency and improved emissions. The all-new shape-shifting VC-Turbo engine gives you the best of both worlds.
The Altima attracts attention with its athletic stance and proportions – lower, wider and more dynamic than previous generations. It is a dramatically sleeker yet more sophisticated look. Larger 19- inch wheels and tires help elevate the vehicle’s appearance, giving it a more linear, tailored feel that’s emphasized by the sharp horizontal lines, and signature Nissan design cues such as the V-motion grille and streamlined boomerang lights. Whether you drop off the kids, plan a ride to the beach, or date a special someone, the 2019 Nissan Altima is sure to impress. “The all-new Altima builds on 25 years of heritage; it is an incredibly popular model in the Middle East, and we are confident that the advancements made in the sixth generation of the car will heighten its appeal.” said Kalyana Sivagnanam, Regional Vice President, Marketing and Sales, AMI. “The all-new Altima is designed to shake up the midsize sedan segment in terms of design, driving enjoyment and technologies that are simultaneously advanced and affordable. Between the sleek exterior, luxurious interior, engine improvements, tighter suspension and increased seat support, the 2019 Altima is a class above.”
