Nissan is batting in the bottom of the ninth with the redesigned 2019 Altima. It perennially sits in third place in mid-size sedan sales behind the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, both of which just got impressive redesigns of their own. That gave the Altima a target (or two, rather) to aim at with its redesign. Nissan seems to have hit the mark in some areas but missed in others.
Party in Front, Business Out Back
The Altima’s new styling is a combination of old and new elements, with the most dramatic changes up front. The sides and rear of the car appear nearly untouched. Up front, the Altima has joined the big-grille revolution that the Camry and Accord also feature as part of their redesigns.
