  1. Notable Features in 2019 Redesigned for 2019 Available AWD 2.5-liter four-cylinder or turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder Standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto Standard automatic emergency braking Available lane-centering steering, adaptive cruise control Price Range $24,000–$35,750 Consumer Rating (4.4)112 reviews MPG (Miles Per Gallon) 29-32 Body Styles Sedan The Good CVT operation Intuitive multimedia system Well-equipped base model Safety and self-driving tech Quiet cabin Fuel efficiency The Bad Choppy ride with 19-inch wheels Numb steering feedback Seat cushions too small Modest storage, cargo space Some inconsistent cabin materials Turbo engine needs premium gas for full power The verdict: The redesigned 2019 Nissan Altima packs much-needed technology and drivability, but some versions shine more than others. Versus the competition: Stuck playing catch-up to its redesigned rivals, the overhauled Altima hits a lot of the right notes, and it’s a vast improvement over its predecessor. Whether that sparks enough interest in a sedan in an SUV-mad market remains to be seen. Available in six trim levels with two engines and front- or all-wheel drive, the Altima gives shoppers a smorgasbord of variants. The availability of AWD — a first for the nameplate — distinguishes Nissan in a largely front-drive class. We tested three Altimas: a mid-level front-drive SV and well-equipped AWD Platinum, both with the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, as well as a loaded Edition One with the Altima’s uplevel engine: a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that replaces last year’s V-6. The 2019 Altima is on sale now, with prices ranging from about $25,000 to around $37,000. Exterior and Styling Nissan’s sixth-generation redesign is all grille with a plunging unit ensconced in a trough of silver garnish. The automaker calls it “V-Motion,” but this is the first time in the U.S. that the Vee has run from hood to ground. Many sedans have gone similarly big on the grille, and the approach seems destined for ruination by a front license plate (in states that require it). Still, I’ll take the focused approach over the outgoing generation’s chaotic front styling.

The Subaru Impreza is a compact car that seats five, has standard all-wheel drive and is available as a sedan or four-door hatchback. All models use a 152-horsepower, 2.0-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine. Base and Sport trim levels have a standard five-speed manual transmission; a continuously variable automatic transmission is available. Competitors include the Nissan Sentra, Mazda3, Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic. What’s New on the 2019 Subaru Impreza? Subaru's EyeSight safety system is now part of the Limited trim level and is available for the CVT-equipped 2.0i version. EyeSight includes adaptive cruise control, automatic pre-collision braking, lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist. What Features in the 2019 Subaru Impreza Are Most Important? Subaru brags that the Impreza is the only mainstream compact car with standard all-wheel drive. Other useful standard features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity and a 60/40-split folding backseat. Should I Buy the 2019 Subaru Impreza? The Impreza isn’t the roomiest, most refined or best performing compact car, but with standard all-wheel drive and an impressive array of available safety features, it deserves consideration — especially if you live in an area where all-wheel traction is a plus.
