2019 Nissan Sentra vs 2019 Nissan Altima

Serving Hinesville, GA

Those in the market for a stylish sedan in 2019 will have two impressive options from Nissan. Both the new Sentra and Altima have a lot to offer consumers inside their sleek and elegant design. Ultimately, the best choice for you will depend on if you value fuel economy over horsepower or vice versa.


There are two engines available on the 2019 Nissan Sentra, depending on which trim level you select. The S, SV, SR, and SR turbo are all powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that will produce up to 124-horsepower in addition to 125 lb-ft of torque in models with the continuously variable transmission (CVT). In the base level S model, the transmission is a six-speed manual that gives you 130-horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. The upper trims known as the NISMO and SL have a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine living under the hood. This produces 188-horsepower as well as 177 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a CVT. When it comes to the Altima, the base powertrain is the same for all models. It is a 2.5L that will give you 188-horsepower. The standard transmission is a CVT. Those seeking more power can have a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder designed to provide them with 248-horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque if they go with the SR or Platinum trim level.


Whether you are looking for something sporty or elegant, there is a Nissan sedan that is perfect for you. The Sentra is more athletic, with aerodynamic lines that will minimize your drag. On top of a long list of exterior paint colors, there are several interior colors to choose from as well. If you are looking for something that screams class, consider the new Altima. This vehicle has a sophisticated look while still managing to look a bit on the sporty side.


Both of these vehicles come equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. These features are designed to make your life easier by seamlessly connecting your phone to your car. While the infotainment screen in the Sentra is 7-inches, the Altima gets an 8-inch screen. There are several advanced driver assistance features available, such as Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, available on both vehicles.
