The 2019 Nissan Altima has been evolving over time and with every release, the emerging model has been aimed at improved safety features and engine performance. This time around, Nissan Altima brings to the scene a combination of the brand's mobility features. Ever heard of the ProPilot Assist? This is a safety tool inbuilt into the Nissan Altima that allows the vehicle to regulate speed, the distance between cars and road lane alignment. An excellent feature for new or distracted drivers, it is one of Nissan Altima's best-selling points.


The 2019 Hyundai Sonata is designed for drivers that are keen on value for their money. You will enjoy a long warranty but no features will aid driving as it happens with the 2019 Nissan Altima.

Both the 2019 Nissan Altima and the 2019 Hyundai Sonata have been built with the modern driver in mind. If you desire to add trims into the car, the basic design is easy to maneuver and adjust. Before you change anything in your new car, how about you try to work with what is already there. The 2019 Nissan Altima achieves its ultimate efficiency from an impressive 248 horsepower. Compare this to the 245 horsepower of the Hyundai Sonata and there is your stamina model.


Drivers of the Nissan Altima will also appreciate the fact that the vehicle can manage winter weather, gaining ground as an all-weather vehicle.


Overall design


Did you know that there are cars that can be started remotely? The 2019 Nissan Altima is one such vehicle, and with this feature, drivers can warm the engines of their cars without having to go outside. With heat-sensitive sensors fitted on the exterior of this car, passengers driving in it enjoy optimum temperatures that have been automatically adjusted. What should you expect? Warm interior when it is cold outside or cool interior if the sun is blazing. The 2019 Hyundai Sonata does not offer such technological convenience.


It is common knowledge that a car that has been left out in the hot sun will heat up on the inside but drivers of the Nissan Altima can mitigate this even without touching the car. From a distance, the driver is able to roll down windows if they have in their hand a keyless remote control device. To roll windows up or down on the Hyundai Sonata, the driver must be inside the vehicle and must first turn on the ignition.


Fitted with speed sensitive wiper, the automated Altima system is able to adjust the speed of wipers to match that of the vehicle. This is a crucial process especially when it is raining but which can be quite distracting. The wiper system of the Sonata is manual and this necessitates the driver to adjust them constantly to match their preference

To improve on the safety of passengers, the front and back shoulder belts in the Nissan Altima have tensioners that work to tighten the belts at the slightest sense of collision. At the same time, force limiters will also be triggered to action and these regulate the pressure that the tightened belts will exert on passengers. Although the Hyundai Sonata offers a similar system in its 2019 model, those riding in the rear seats do not enjoy the same level of protection as the front riders.


The best security measures are those that tackle real life issues and one that is related to cars are the catastrophic accidental death of infants and kids who have been left in the car. This is mainly due to poor interior ventilation which the Altima has a solution for. An inbuilt system will sense that the driver has turned off the ignition and they could be preparing to leave. This triggers a reminder for them to open the rear door, a feature that the Sonata does not have.


Another critical area is the occurrence of fatal accidents when a car is backing up. The 2019 Nissan Altima has an automatic rear braking system that monitors activity behind the car and engages the brakes if an obstacle is identified. The Sonata relies on driver alertness when parking because it is not fitted with any sensors that aid rear motion.


Are you prone to falling asleep even when behind the wheel? The 2019 Nissan Altima can identify instances when the driver is not fully attentive. Listen to the warning signal and engage your brakes because this is the suggested action when you lose concentration on the road. By incorporating this technology into their car operating system, the Altima helps to reduce car crashes and deaths as reported by the NHTSA.

Like the 2019 Nissan Altima, the 2019 Hyundai Sonata has front and side airbags for the driver and front passenger, knee airbags for the driver, side airbags to arrest head impact, traction control, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross path sensors to reduce the probability of accidents.

The Verdict

The 2019 Hyundai Sonata is a stylish vehicle that delivers on comfort and relaxation every time. On the other hand, the 2019 Nissan Altima looks amazing, is quiet and thus peaceful on the inside. The ultimate tiebreaker here is the smart safety features that ensure that you arrive safely regardless of the driving conditions; the 2019 Nissan Altima!
