2019 Nissan Altima 4,000-Mile Update

Two months and another 3,000-miles have been added to our 2019 Nissan Altima. That puts our running total at just over 4,000-miles.

Over that time, we’ve gotten consistent comments about the Altima’s smooth and comfortable ride.

It’s a real looker, too; with more than one person we’ve come in contact with, mistaking it for a Maxima.

The standard 2.5-liter engine seems to be making the best use of its 188-horsepower, as we’ve had no complaints so far; and doing it quite efficiently as well. Our average sits at 31.0 miles-per-gallon.

The Altima is one of the few affordable midsize sedans with all-wheel-drive available, and we look forward to putting it to the test this winter.

If you don’t need the all-wheel-drive, and are looking for more power, a segment exclusive is Nissan’s 2.0-liter variable compression 4-cylinder turbo rated at 248-horsepower.

Our Platinum-trimmed Altima has a host of advanced safety features, but it’s worth noting that all Altimas come with Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking standard.
