Test drive the new 2019 Nissan Altima at Boucher Nissan in Waukesha WI

At first glance, the 2019 Altima and Passat stack up pretty evenly, with each able to achieve over 35 highway miles per gallon and provide app integration technology inside. However, at its best, there’s no denying that the 2019 Altima is the better call. Its high-end horsepower and torque ratings are much greater than that of the Passat, and its available All-Wheel Drive system meshes with a Continuously Variable Transmission that makes its ride one of the smoothest in the business. Even so, the Altima is much better equipped at making your safety a top priority, thanks to the following innovations that come courtesy of Nissan Intelligent Mobility:

  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Intelligent Around View® Monitor
  • Many more!

There’s much more to love about the 2019 Altima, but you’ll have to see us for more information – so, feel free to contact Waukesha Nissan as soon as you get a chance, and we’ll get you set up with a test drive.
