Upgraded Engine Specs for Better Performance
2019 Nissan Altima VC-Turbo
The exciting new 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine is rated for 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque on the SR and Platinum trims. The variable compression turbo-4 is rated to deliver near 6-cylinder performance with 4-cylinder fuel economy. The reliable 2.5-liter four-cylinder is standard on the remainder of the Altima line, but this powerhouse has also been amped up over the 2018 Altima engine to deliver a respectable 188 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque.
The revisions to the 2.5-liter engine also offer decreases in noise and vibration with heightened fuel economy and cleaner emissions. Nissan didn’t stop with improvements in the power-plants of this line, they also updated suspension components, steering elements and installed more sophisticated rear shocks. All these changes add up to significant improvements in ride and handling. Add the updated continuously variable transmission (CVT), and you have a complete makeover to an already compelling vehicle.
Is the Nissan Altima a Safe Commuter?
2019 Nissan Altima Safety Camera The commitment to safety shows with the 2019 Altima standard forward collision warnings, rearview camera and automatic emergency braking. Optional features include blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control and active lane control. Grab the SV, SL or Platinum and you gain the ProPilot Assist Level-2 semi-autonomous driving technology.

The “hands on” technology also includes rear collision braking when the car is in reverse, traffic sign recognition, pedestrian detection, rear cross-traffic alert and automatic high beams. This whole system helps create a 360-degree safety shield which provides front, side and rear safety technologies. This whole system increases safety while acting to ease the driver workload of daily commuters under certain driving conditions.
