When a vehicle enters its next generation, trying to capture all of the additions, enhancements, and miscellaneous changes can prove to be an overwhelming task. That’s precisely why our team at Charlie Clark Nissan El Paso has created this 2019 vs 2018 Nissan Altima comparison, which highlights the biggest differences between the all-new Altima and its 2018 predecessor.

Under the hood of the all-new Altima, customers will have two options to choose from: a traditional 2.5-liter DOHC inline four-cylinder engine or the innovative 2.0-liter VC-Turbo. The 2.5-liter engine produces up to 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque while the next-level 2.0-liter VC-Turbo generates up to 248 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. Neither of these engines can be found in the 2018 Altima.

Main Differences Between the 2019 and 2018 Nissan Altima

In addition to its new engines, the 2019 Altima is the first of its kind to offer Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. Not only does the Altima drive stronger than ever, it drives smoother, too! Far from done there, the 2019 Nissan Altima also drives safer than any of its predecessors.

One of the first vehicles to ever debut this host of technology, the 2019 Altima provides its owners with Nissan Safety Shield 360. This deluxe host of driver-assistance systems includes Lane Departure Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, High Beam Assist, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Automatic Braking, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Likewise, the 2019 Altima is among the first Nissan vehicles to offer ProPILOT Assist. With this high-tech system, the 2019 Nissan Altima autonomously keeps itself in the center of its lane, reduces the need for manual steering, braking, and accelerating, and helps to maintain your desired speed as well as the distance between the Altima and the car in front of it.

As you can see, our 2019 vs 2018 Nissan Altima comparison concludes in a landslide victory for the 2019 model. With a stronger, smoother, safer, and easier driving experience, it’s no wonder why the world can’t wait for the arrival of the all-new 2019 Nissan Altima.
