The Altima was just redesigned for 2019, and it's significantly different than its predecessor. First introduced in 1992, the midsize sedan slots in-between the larger Maxima and the Sentra in Nissan's car lineup. It's built at Nissan's assembly plant in Smyrna, Tenn. The outgoing Altima is Nissan's third best-selling vehicle.
The brand new Altima offers snazzier looks and some very interesting powertrain options. All-wheel drive is now available, as is a technologically impressive VC-Turbo engine with variable compression for enhanced power and economy. We'll get to all of the new details and features below.
