New Nissan Altima-te Showcases Sedan’s AWD in Spectacular Ways

In case you didn’t know, the new 2019 Nissan Altima has all-wheel drive. It’s also one of the few mid-size sedans to even offer the added stability and grip of AWD.

To celebrate the addition of four-wheel goodness to the new Altima, Nissan unveiled the spectacular ALTIMA-te at the Montreal Auto Show a few weeks ago. Like the Rogue Warrior before it, the ALTIMA-te is a heavily modified version of the original car that rides on snow tracks instead of wheels.

It can also go basically anywhere you want or need it to go.

"This is not the Altima of old; for the 2019 model year, we are redefining what this historic nameplate stands for. With the scarcity in the market of all-wheel drive configurations available on sedans, we wanted to make a statement to customers. The average person does not assume a sedan offers AWD," says Joni Paiva, president of Nissan Canada Inc.

"The Altima-te AWD joins the other, one-off, track-equipped crossover vehicles like the Rogue Warrior and sends a clear message to the market – this Altima has the ability to conquer the harshest weather environments with the added confidence provided by standard Nissan Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, which adapts to road conditions in the blink of an eye," concludes Paiva.
