Al Masaood Automobiles, the authorized distributor of Nissan in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and the Western Region, has unveiled the all-new Nissan 2019 Altima, available in all showrooms at a starting price of AED 89,145. Built on 25 years of heritage, the sixth generation of Altima sets new standards for Nissan sedan design and comes complete with intelligent mobility technologies and new powertrains.
Altima has become an established popular model in the Middle East and advancements made in the latest edition are certain to heighten its appeal throughout the region. The all-new Altima’s design was inspired by the award-winning Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept car, which debuted at the 2017 North American Auto Show in Detroit. Between the sleek exterior, luxurious interior, engine improvements, tighter suspension and increased seat support, the vehicle is a class above – creating a new standard of design, driving enjoyment and technology within the mid-size sedan segment.
Irfan Tansel, CEO, Al Masaood Automobiles, said: “Al Masaood is committed to ensuring the best quality to raise the customer experience excellence standards. The most important factor for success and future growth is customer satisfaction and providing superior services and the latest innovative technology to customers is essential. With the release of the all-new Nissan 2019 Altima, we have delivered exactly that.”
He continued: “A key foundation of our success dating back more than five decades is our keenness to understand the market to satisfy every customer. This car boasts expressive styling, an uplifting interior, two new powertrains and advanced intelligent mobility features – ensuring an affordable and advanced driving experience to exceed customer expectations and reach the highest levels of satisfaction.”
The all-new release provides front, side and rear safety monitoring and intervention technologies – including Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), radar-based Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and High Beam Assist (HBA). Two new engines have also been introduced on the 2019 Altima. Standard on all 2019 Altima grade levels is a new 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder direct injection engine. More than just the gains in horsepower and torque, the new engine offers improvements in smoothness and cabin quietness, along with enhanced fuel economy and cleaner emissions.
It is lower, longer and wider than the previous generation with a highly balanced, aggressive stance and the option of 19-inch wheels and tires. Inside, the all-new premium interior features a wide ‘gliding wing’ instrument panel – which accentuates the exterior’s low cowl and hood, helping create an open, airy environment. Key interior comfort and convenience features include upgraded seats with added bolstering for improved holding and support. The car also features Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ and an 8-inch multi-touch color display for complete in-car entertainment and ease of driver control.
Cutting-edge Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies have been integrated into the 2019 Altima as standard. These include Nissan’s Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which helps drivers to detect stationary objects when reversing. When an object is detected, the system warns the driver with visual and audible warnings. The vehicle is also available in a range of trim levels – S, SV and SL in the 2.5L and SV and SL grades in 2.0L Turbo. 2.0L VC-Turbo will be open for reservations in early summer 2019.
