Nissan has confirmed the new Altima will be unveiled at the 2018 New York Auto Show on March 28, and these latest spy photos give us a real good idea of what to expect. Spy photographers managed to capture photos of the Altima’s interior, revealing a tablet-like infotainment screen. The materials used inside the cabin appear to be upgrades over the current model, and shoppers can likely expect to see Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The Japanese automaker will also add ProPilot Assist driver assistance technologies to the Altima.
Although the prototype is still wearing camouflage bumper to bumper, expect the styling to draw heavily from the VMotion 2.0 Concept that debuted at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. Reports suggest the Altima will keep its naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, paired to a CVT as its volume unit. The V6 engine however, will likely be replaced by a turbocharged four-cylinder offering. All-wheel drive has also been rumored to be offered as an option, and a NISMO variant is a possibility.
We’ll learn more about the 2019 Nissan Altima on March 28, so stay tuned as AutoGuide.com will be reporting live from the 2018 New York Auto Show.
