2019 Nissan Altima Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.0

The 2019 Nissan Altima has a spacious, comfortable cabin and a user-friendly infotainment system. This redesigned Altima has upped its tech game since the previous generation, adding a larger touch screen and standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The interior style looks more modern, but some reviewers note that Nissan uses some low-rent materials.

  • "Nissan has removed clutter and designed a clean and attractive dashboard that has bits that could have been taken from a Mazda 6, which is a good thing." -- Car and Driver
  • "Streamlined climate controls and an 8-inch touchscreen mounted higher on the dash give a clean, clutter-free look." -- Edmunds
  • "Inside, the longer wheelbase means there's room for passengers, and the cabin is open and airy. Nissan's 'Zero Gravity' seats are found inside, and while they don't actually throw Newton's theories to the wind, they're easily some of the most comfortable and supportive in the segment." -- CNET

Seating

The Altima seats five in two rows of cloth seats. An eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat is standard, and leather upholstery, heated front seats, driver's seat memory settings, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a heated steering wheel are available. The Altima's Zero Gravity front seats are comfortable and supportive, and both rows of seats have plenty of space for adults.

Two sets of LATCH car-seat connectors are in the rear outboard seats.

  • "The seats will never get old. Nissan calls them Zero Gravity seats and credits NASA-inspired technology for their comfort. Whatever space voodoo goes into them works because they're some of the most comfortable you'll find in the automotive wild. The seatbacks feel as if they're stuffed with dense memory foam, and the cushions feel wide and supportive. The slightly firmer side bolsters in the new Altima's seats come in handy when the road gets twisty." -- Edmunds
  • "The rear seat is spacious, and the Altima's new exterior design translates to great sightlines on both sides and acceptable rear visibility over the trunklid." -- Motor Trend
  • None of the materials inside felt terribly cheap, although there was still a quality disparity between the scratchy fabric and the plusher leather upholstery on the 8-way power driver’s seat. At least they were both comfortable. In highly-equipped trim levels with attractive materials and color combinations, the Altima is a nice place to be. All passengers are also likely to appreciate the four USB charging points scattered around the car." -- Automobile Magazine

  • "The redesign modernizes the interior, with a graceful new dash and large 8-inch touchscreen that offers home screen customization. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on all trims now." -- Autoblog
  • "An 8.0-inch touchscreen is standard, and it's augmented by volume and tuning knobs. There's an industry trend of returning to the basic two-knob setup after experiments with fussy touch and swipe controls, and we're happy to see the simple yet functional setup here in the Altima." -- Car and Driver
  • "On the inside, as you’d expect, the 2019 Altima is far more improved and refined. The most noticeable upgrade is its new prominent center touchscreen, which now measures at 8.0-inches and has large volume and tuning knobs." -- Automobile Magazine

Cargo

There's 15.4 cubic feet of trunk space in the Altima, which is average for the class. The wide trunk opening makes it easy to load bulky items, but the trunk hinges may impede cargo flexibility.

  • "The roomy trunk — one of the previous Altima’s strengths — is unchanged." -- The Detroit Free Press
  • The 2019 Altima offers 15.4 cubic feet of cargo space, a tad more than the 15.1 cubic feet on most Camrys and less than the Accord's 16.7 cubic feet." -- Motor Trend
  • Though the trunk is wide at the rear and decently sized, sickle-shaped lid hinges dip into the load area, and the folded rear seat backs rest about two inches above the floor of the trunk, which makes it difficult to slide long items forward." -- Consumer Guide
