Nissan is set to debut an all-new version of the Altima sedan next month at the 2018 New York Auto Show. The new version will mark the car’s first major redesign since 2013.
In recent years Nissan has shifted its focus to crossovers and SUVs since the market if shifting that direction, but the Altima is not small potatoes for Nissan either. Last year the company sold over 250,000 copies of the Altima in the U.S., despite the talk of sedans slowly dying.
Not a lot is known about the new Altima. It’s alleged new design was previewed by the Vmotion 2.0 Concept that debuted at last year’s Detroit Auto Show. Morphing that design into a production sedan will likely yield a design not unfamiliar to that of the newer Maxima and V motion-like traits from the Rogue and Rogue Sport.
Nissan is also expected to slather on its latest technology, including elements of its ProPilot Assist system, which is already found on several of its models.
There’s nothing but speculation when it comes to the 2019 Altima’s powertrains, but Motor Authority reports a standard four-cylinder and optional V-6 may be in the cards. A hybrid version of the Altima is not out of the question either, perhaps one using Nissan’s new ePower mild hybrid system.
The 2019 Nissan Altima is slated for reveal on March 28th at the New York Auto Show.
