Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Nissan Altima is a sharper sedan now, made better with great active safety features and a newly available turbo-4.

Pros
Better exterior looks
Quieter interior in most trims
Great active safety features
Good 8.0-inch touchscreen
Comfortable seats

Cons
SR trim levels get noisy tires
Some hard plastics to be found
Will sedan buyers opt for all-wheel drive?
Where’s the hybrid?

The 2019 Nissan Altima ranked #4 in Midsize Cars. Currently the Nissan Altima has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 14 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Composed handling
Comfortable, roomy cabin
Available all-wheel drive and ProPilot Assist
Long list of standard technology features

Cons
Some low-grade cabin materials
Not as agile as some competitors

The Nissan Altima is one of those competent and capable family sedans that has nonetheless lived in the shadows of the big sellers from Honda and Toyota. Whether loaded with more standard features than the others or given brawny V6 power, the Altima could never quite outrun its also-ran status. The new 2019 Nissan Altima may change all that.

Pros
New engine promises both power and efficiency
Seats are among the most comfortable of any midsize sedan
Offers full suite of semi-automated driving features

Cons
All-wheel drive only available with less powerful engine
Nice, if bland, interior design

Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are standard for 2021.Wireless smartphone charging now available.

Pros
Attractive cabin with top-quality materials and construction
Super smooth ride
Advanced safety features come standard
Wide cargo bay makes it easy to load items

Cons
Touchpad controller is distracting to use
Real-world fuel economy lags behind estimates

Lexus introduced the Black Line Special Edition package for the F Sport models. It comes with black exterior accents, black 20-inch wheels, blue stitching for the leather interior, and either an Ultra White or Grecian Water (medium blue) paint job. More notably, ordering the Black Line Special Edition package also adds a two-piece set of Zero Halliburton luggage. Elsewhere, the RX receives a new interior color—Glazed Caramel—which replaces Noble Brown.

Pros
Fuel-efficient powertrains,
standard driver-assistance features,
silky-smooth ride quality.

Cons
Lazy driving demeanor,
relaxed acceleration,
fussy infotainment touchpad.
