All-wheel drive is finally available as an option for any vehicle equipped with the new base engine, a 2.5-liter I4.

This new I4 puts out 188 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, and while the displacement is the same as before, about 80 percent of the engine features new or redesigned parts.

What you can't get with all-wheel drive, though, is the second implementation of Nissan's VC-Turbo engine.

Debuting first on the Infiniti QX50, this engine can change its compression ratio on the fly, offering performance or fuel efficiency depending on the driver's needs.

The VC-Turbo engine is only available on the SR and Platinum trims. Both engines get CVTs.

In addition to its new looks, all 2019 Altimas receive the same standard infotainment system, packing an 8-inch touchscreen with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

If safety is what you're after, you'll be happy to know that automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning and a driver alertness monitor are all standard.
