At the Auto Show in New York 2018 premiere of a new sedan Nissan Altima 6 generation, which in some countries is sold under the name Teana. Recall that once popular, the model left our market in two thousand sixteenth because of the crisis.
The exterior of the four-door is made in the current corporate style of the “V-motion” company, and the prototype of the production car presented a little over a year ago the concept Vmotion 2.0. As a result, the new Nissan Teana 2018-2019 (photo, price) looks fresh, stylish and original.
In front, the car stands out with a massive V-shaped grille with a honeycomb structure framed on the lower part by a wide chrome edging, under the circumference of which there is a black bar with additional air ducts.
The upper ends of the grid flow into the fins on the hood and the acute-angle optics with C-shaped diode sections. Backlights in the form of boomerangs are already in the base of the LED, on the boot lid there is a stamping in the form of a small spoiler, and the upward sideward line in the area of the rear posts is interfaced with a small insert of a dark color creating the effect of a “floating” roof.
Profile Nissan Teana 2018 in the new body with a sloping roof resembles the older Maxima model, the rims now can be 19-inch, and the drag coefficient of the manufacturer was reduced to a value of 0.26.
The saloon is also great changed – from the old car did not remain a trace. The front panel became lower and lost a massive “beard” on the center console, which is now made in a minimalist style, creating an airy effect.
The steering wheel, the instrument panel, which acquired a 7.0-inch display of the onboard computer between the main scales, as well as the Zero Gravity, branded armchairs developed jointly with NASA specialists, were inspected.
Upgraded multimedia complex Nissan Connect has acquired a stand-alone screen with a diagonal of 8.0 “, there is support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, plus four USB-connectors. The climate control unit, as well as the transmission selector, have also been modified.
The car was based on a modified platform from its predecessor with new rear shock absorbers and steering. Representatives of the company reported a decrease in the level of noise and vibration, assuring that the driver and passengers of the novelty “will feel that they were in the car class higher.”
The overall length of the new model of the Nissan Teana 2019 is 4 884 mm (+ 25), the wheelbase has added 48 millimeters – up to 2,824, width – 1,852 (+ 23), the height has dropped to 1,447 (-24). Front overhang was slightly reduced, and the volume of the trunk is not yet specified.
The base engine for Altima in the States remained a 2.5-liter atmospheric gasoline “four”, but the company claims that engineers have reworked it by 80%. Now the engine develops 191 hp. and 244 Nm of torque and is paired with an improved Xtronic variator.
But the 3.6-liter V6 in the gamut will no longer be – it was replaced by a completely new 2.0-liter VC-Turbo (characteristics) with a variable compression ratio, which previously debuted on the new Infiniti QX50 II. But if on the SUV he gives out 272 “horses” (380 Nm), then for the sedan it was deformed to 251 hp. and 370 Nm.
In addition, for the first time in the history of the model, a plug-in all-wheel drive (only for version 2.5), borrowed from the Rogue SUV (as in America it’s called X-Trail) became available for it. The clutch can throw up to 50% traction on the wheels of the rear axle – this option in the States competitors in the face of Camry and Accord do not offer.
