One of the biggest legends in automobile industry for more than 80 years, Nissan Motors has never ceased to surprise customers with its impeccable quality and incredible vehicles across the globe. Known for their cutting edge technology, Nissan Motors have delivered some of the most iconic and memorable cars over the past decades.
With increasing inclination towards SUV’s across the global markets, sales of traditional cars continue to decline, but that only makes automakers more resilient in building cars that would give a tough competition. With the expected launch of Nissan’s 2019 model, the Nissan Altima, things are looking brighter for the makers in the land of the rising sun.
2019 Nissan Altima Rumors
Released way back in 2012, the existing Altima considerably performs less than its perceived potential, coupling with other issues including its interiors, less powerful engine, to name among a few. But, all that is looking like a distant glitch as the upcoming 2019 version of Altima promises a lot in the offering. According to reports, the car will remain front wheel drive, and is expected to utilize Renault’s new CMF-CD chassis.
Since it is a modular platform, it will allow the makers to give the car a much improved internal design. In terms of wheelbase, the car is expected to retain the dimensions of Vmotion 2.0 concept with minimal differences. This would result in a 2 inch improvement over the earlier model. The length might be reduced in order to give the Altima a much sportier design.
2019 Nissan Altima Design and Features
One of the principal downside with the current model has been its looks and the middling chassis, but that is all about to be solved with the 2019 Nissan Altima. Firstly, the new platform would be significantly solid than ever before. Secondly, the design is no longer going to be monotonous, but sleek and slim with a glistering metallic finish.
In terms of interiors, the Altima has never really had an issue, except for the amount of space, which was regarded average. Nonetheless, the car was comparatively quieter and comfortable than most of its counterparts. The makers are also proposing to replace the mediocre dashboard into something more contemporary. The new Altima model is likely to improve on all this aspects and emerge as a superior car, both in performance and sophistication.
The current variants of the Altima have been powered by either a 2.5 liter inline 4 with 182 horsepower or with a 270 horsepower 3.5 liter V6 engines. Unfortunately, both of them are fairly average when it comes to power deliverance, and also due to standard CVT smaller 2.5 liter engine. However, the 2019 Nissan Altima looks promising as it is widely speculated it just might make the move to turbocharged power.
Nissan has a 1.6 liter turbo-four with up to 200 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque in its engine closet, meaning, that if they decide to replace it with the current 2.5 liter engine, it sure will be a masterstroke. In addition, instead of a 270 horsepower it might increase closer to 300 horsepower. It is highly expected that the makers are likely to maintain the V6.
With a large grille, swept-back headlights, trimmed tail lights, more boot space, advanced central console and an attractive design, it should allow this mid-sized sedan in becoming one of the better selling cars in its class.
