Default 2019 Nissan Altima

Definitely looking better than the generation it's replacing, minus the floating roof. Obviously the floating screen is the newest overused design trend, following the 6 and Accord in the midsizers.

Looks promising. The current Altima is a big step down from its predecessor (along with the Sentra and Versa), so hopefully this will be a return to form.

It will remain a highly incentivized, third-rate alternative to the CamCord. The Altima just isn't as rock solid for reliability as the CamCord.

Doesn't look half bad so far.

Probably irrelevant to Australian buyers though as Nissan Australia will find some excuse as to why they won't be importing it here - beyond hopeless they are.

I actually don't mind the design of the current-gen Altima. It's inoffensive but not completely bland. Not particularly interested in owning one b/c I imagine that there are other cars in the class that are both better drivers AND more comfortable.

I'm really liking the slimmer dashboard designs and consoles we've been seeing lately (Ford, Hyundai, Honda, Nissan), although it looks like they are all designed by one studio.... ::sigh::

The flat bottomed steering wheel has officially become a BS "racy" cliche.

I have flat-bottom steering wheel in my car and like it, but, yes, I don't think it needs to be on EVERY car (including mine, which is a sedan).

I also think makes need to stop copying M cars and NOT make ridiculously fat steering wheels (I guess this goes more for the FL'd RLX than the Altima, though). Sometimes more is... just too much.

Is it useful for driving? Or just improve entry/exit a bit? I have to admit, it does look cool.

My car has such contoured grips at 10,2,4 and 8 that its almost a bit square inside.

Any truth to the rumor that the new Versa sedan will be called the Minima?

I wont lie, I totally forgot about the Altima until I saw these new photos. Kinda hard to remember it when all you see are Sentras and Maximas.. with that being said, I like how the front is shaping up with this new model. Interior doesn't look too bad either.
