Nissan Altima S: Standard Safety

2019 Nissan Altima

First up in the Nissan Altima lineup is the S trim. When you’re driving around enjoying the 188 horsepower from the 2.5L Direct Injection 4-cylinder engine, you’ll be privy to a suite of standard safety technologies designed to help alert you to potential collisions. Included in these systems is Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking. These features can detect potential frontal collisions to alert you to when you should brake. In certain instances, they can even bring your Altima to a complete halt for you.

Nissan Altima SR: A Sporty Sedan

The Altima SR gives your sedan an athletic upgrade with a sport-tuned suspension on the 4-wheel drive models. From the comfort of your sport cloth-trimmed seating, enjoy the thrill of the ride with paddle shifters complete with a manual shift mode to provide you with a hands-on driving experience.

Upgrade this sports car feel with the SR VC-TURBO trim option. This car features a 2.0L Variable Compression Turbo 4-cylinder engine, generating 248 horsepower. Combined with heated front seats, you’ll be able to enjoy a smooth and comfortable yet thrilling ride.

Nissan Altima SV: Taking Safety to the Next Level

If you’re looking to upgrade from the standard safety features of the Altima S, the SV trim is a great option for you. During your morning commute you’ll be thankful for Nissan ProPILOT Assist which acts as your copilot, regulating speed and braking to maintain a preset following distance. It can even keep you centered in your lane, helping to take the stress out of rush hour traffic.

The Altima SV also adds Nissan Safety Shield® 360, which includes the following safety technologies:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Rear Automatic Braking

These systems further monitor the road around you to help keep you alerted to and protected from potential obstacles.
