2019 Nissan Altima

The all-new 2019 Nissan Altima is here!

We’re excited about the launch of this all-new redesign of the classic Nissan sedan we know and love! From exterior, to the engine, to the interior–this Altima has you covered. To get you excited too (it’ll be here soon!), we wanted to give you our top-five things you need to know about the 2019 Nissan Altima.

Here are the top things you need to know about it:

Redesign

The new Altima has been truly overhauled for a sleeker, sportier feel. Check out this head-to-head comparison with the 2018 Altima:

2019 Nissan AltimaThis sixth-generation Altima now has a deeper Nissan-signature V-motion grille, a floating roof like others in the Nissan lineup, and sharper lines. In fact, the new Altima is 1.1 inches lower in height than previous models. It culminates to a very fresh makeover for one of the most well-known and well-loved Nissan models.

Smart Technology

The 2019 Nissan Altima is leading the way in its class with the addition of the available ProPilot Assist. This is available on the SV, SL, and Platinum trim levels. ProPilot Assist was included on 2018 models like the Rogue; read more about that feature here. Also available on these trims is the new Rear Automatic Braking (RAB). RAB helps the driver detect stationary objects when backing up, and, if necessary, will apply the break to avoid a collision.

Three features are standard on all trims:

  1. Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)
  2. Intelligent Forward Collision Warning (I-FCW), and
  3. Intelligent Driver Alertness (I-DA)

All of these combine to create a 360 safety shield around the 2019 Nissan Altima drivers and passengers, as Nissan continues to forge forward in vehicle safety technology.

Things the competition doesn’t have – that the Altima does

At the end of the day, how does it compare to the competition? Check out this video for a review on 5 things the 2019 Nissan Altima has that other sedans do not. For quick reference, these five things are:

  1. Available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive
  2. AVC Turbo Engine – the first production-ready in the world (see more information in the video)
  3. Standard Apple Car Play & Android Auto
  4. Concierge service – a free 3-year plan to order flowers, book a restaurant, reserve tickets, and more!
  5. 2 USB-C charging points, which is a newer port that is beginning to be used more regularly as it charges more quickly than a standard USB (but those are included as well!)

9th Annual Student Car Giveaway!

9th Annual Student Car Giveaway

Good Grades = Free Car

Madelyn Griffith won a brand new car last month because of her good grades at Merrol Hyde Magnet School in Hendersonville, TN. Her first words at the microphone were, “GO HAWKS!” to her classmates in the audience. She expressed that she was really grateful and shocked, saying, “I literally almost didn’t come, because I thought I wouldn’t win.” She and her sister were attending a large youth conference at Lipscomb, but they gave up a few hours of camp to come to the 9th Annual Student Car Giveaway at Newton Nissan in Gallatin, TN. 

The two sisters and their parents were the very first of almost 100 families to enter the showroom, get a good look at the Nissan Versa, and enjoy free food and beverages while waiting for the big giveaway to begin. Her sister enjoyed playing some of the trivia that opened the event’s giveaways, and won some candy! They thought that’s the only thing they would leave with that night. Little did they know! After winning, Madelyn made sure her sister understood that, “This is MY car, not yours!”

Student Car Giveaway

About the Annual Student Car Giveaway

The annual Newton Nissan Car Giveaway event is open to all students enrolled in a Tennessee high school. Since the program started in 2009, Newton Nissan has given away ten cars to students in the Nashville area. Students enter the contest by bringing in their report card from the most recent school year. Students increase their chances of winning by making good grades, since they receive one entry per “A” on their report card.

About the Grand Prize

The grand prize was a 2018 Nissan Versa, valued at $15,330. “Newton Nissan pays for both the car and sales taxes, so Madelyn doesn’t have to pay anything for her new car,” says Mike Abbondanza, Newton Nissan’s Vice President. We at Newton Nissan are more than happy to give back to our community, particularly our students, in this way!

We hope to see you & your student next year at our 10th Annual Student Car Giveaway!

Newton Nissan Gives: Gallatin Shalom Zone

Newton Nissan Gives

Newton Nissan Gives

Newton Nissan is committed to the community that surrounds it. From work with Mustard Seed Communities to giving oil changes to local fundraising auctions, we are always looking for ways to give back. One of the organizations that reached out to us last year for sponsorship opportunities was Gallatin Shalom Zone. This wonderful organization, right here in Gallatin, is dedicated to improving our community by engaging Sumner County residents “in the work of healing, peace, reconciliation, justice, and love.”

Towards this end, Gallatin Shalom Zone has transformed a former high school (Union High School), into the Union High Resource Center. This centralized location serves our community as a meeting place for individuals as well as organizations to foster positive and healthy community development. Through programs such as ESL, after school tutoring, camps, and more, the center promotes a safe, healthy, and happy environment for kids and adults alike.  In time, their goals are to see more children graduate high school and for our families to grow stronger.

This year, Newton Nissan joined their mission in sponsoring their 8th Annual Tribute Dinner, which seeks to honor with awards members in our community who are making a difference. Three awards are given at this dinner: The Heritage Award, The Leimentoll/Martin Humanitarian Award, and The Hal Hooper Philanthropy Award.

The Heritage Award will be presented to First Baptist Winchester. This award is given to a group or organization who are involved in the community in the spirit of the Shalom; First Baptist will receive this award for long-term, outstanding, and dedicated involvement in the community.

The Leimentoll/Martin Humanitarian Award will be presented to Bill Puryear. This award recognizes character, strength, and unwavering integrity and compassion. Bill will receive this award for his steadfast involvement in many schools, organizations, churches, and individuals’ lives.

The Hal Hooper Philanthropy Award will be presented to R.C.O. Holding Company/R.C. Owen III. This award showcases those whose donations have improved the community with sustainable change. R.C.O. Holding Company/R.C. Owen III receives this award for years of support given to the community by the company and past president.

You can still get involved and join them for this special tribute dinner on Thursday, March 15. Reservations are required. Contact the Shalom office at 615-442-7575 to reserve your seat! Tickets are $50/each; $400/table of 8.

We hope that together we can celebrate the work of Gallatin Shalom Zone and improve our community, one life at a time.

Introducing: the 2018 Nissan Leaf

Tuesday, February 20th, 2018

2018 Nissan Leaf

The all-new 2018 Nissan Leaf is here, and it’s beautiful. Redesigned for greater range and power, it still remains the #1 affordable electric car in the world. This year, the list of new technologies is staggering. But it is all to improve the driver’s overall experience. Keep reading for more information!

Increased Range & Power

This begins with the range: the 2018 Nissan Leaf tops out at 150 miles! This is about 30 miles more than last year’s model. Also improved from last year is the horsepower–now at 147, a 38% increase and the torque at 236 lb/ft, which is a 26% increase. For those who (like me) need that put simply: the acceleration will feel smoother and more agile. The battery has also improved; without changing in size, it houses 67% more energy–to keep you on the road longer.

Redefined Style

Beyond the percentages, though, is redefined style. The exterior has been improved for both aerodynamics as well as appeal. It reflects the forward-progress attitude that Nissan has towards always improving this popular vehicle. Additionally, the signature V-Motion grille present on almost every vehicle in the Nissan lineup has been added this year to the leaf, showing a strong brand-alliance. This classic look is updated for the Leaf with the signature blue accent pattern (seen below).2018 Nissan Leaf

Smart Interior

On the inside, the “cool tech attitude” that the exterior sculpts comes alive. From the 7-inch full color display housing Navigation, Apple/Android connectivity, and a rear-view camera, to the smart gauges in the driver’s display taking the guesswork out of range–the Leaf has all the technology a driver needs. But Nissan didn’t stop there; they gave the 2018 Nissan Leaf the most intelligent driving features available.

2018 Nissan Leaf

The Leaf offers ProPilot Assist, which is a fairly new product that can help drivers stay in their lane, maintain an appropriate distance between cars, keep the vehicle centered in the lane, and stay moving or stopped as traffic dictates. In addition, standard on all trim levels is the e-Pedal. This is one pedal by which the driver can accelerate, brake, and stop. Simply release the pedal, and the Leaf will come to a complete stop without any need to press the pedal again. In rougher traffic, however, the traditional brake-only pedal is still available for drivers to use.

Coming Soon: 2018 Nissan Kicks

Monday, January 29th, 2018

2018 Nissan Kicks

In 2018, Nissan has announced its first brand-new model in 8-years: the 2018 Nissan Kicks. Joining the Rogue & Rogue sport as a compact crossover, it will be coming to a Nissan showroom near you beginning in 2018.

Keeping the Crossover Cool

The compact crossover is the fastest growing section in car sales, and is also the most affordable. The 2018 Nissan Kicks will join the ranks with a bold style, with recognizable Nissan standouts: the V-motion grille and floating roof, as well as new two-tone color options. The exterior was designed for aerodynamic ability, which estimates its combined MPG at 33. With three different trims available (S, SV, SR), each at affordable prices, the Kicks is sure to turn heads.

2018 Nissan Kicks

Keeping Standard Features, well, Standard

The Kicks will will feature an all-around-view monitor, which is a newer addition to the Nissan lineup. This feature gives the driver a 360-degree view of the area around the vehicle, helpful especially for parking and driving in small spaces. If you get too close to an object on any side, front, or back, there will be an on-screen warning to alert you. Also standard will be these other top safety features:

  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning,
  • Automatic Emergency Braking, and
  • Blind Spot Warning.

A Smart & Stylish Interior

On the inside, the Kicks will feature the smart technology that Nissan is quickly becoming known for. This includes a 7.0-inch color display with features such as smartphone connectivity (ApplePlay and AndroidAuto) and the all-around view monitor. Also available is a premium Bose sound system. Behind the wheel, the driver will control which features they would like to see–including MPG numbers, playlist/music information, etc.

Be on the lookout for the 2018 Nissan Kicks! Coming soon!

Introducing: the 2018 Nissan Armada

Monday, January 8th, 2018
2018 Nissan Armada

2018 Nissan Armada

Nissan’s flagship SUV is designed for family adventures and fun, and has set the bar high for the competition. Each month in 2017, its sales have continued to exceed its sales projections. But for 2018, the bar just got set higher, with new standard features on all models, continued improved horsepower and towing, and–for the first time–an available new feature: Intelligent Rear View Mirror. Continue reading to see if the 2018 Nissan Armada is the right SUV for you!

New Standards Set

For the 2018 model year, formerly premium upgrades are now standard: including NissanConnect, Sirius XM Radio, an 8-in touch display screen, enhanced voice-recognition services, and extra USB ports for connectivity and charging on the go. In addition, the Armada set best-in-class horsepower among its rivals with its 390-horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 and 7-speed automatic transmission.

2018 Nissan Armada

New Intelligent Features

Nissan has been an industry leader in its development and implementation of safety features, including these frontrunners:

  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Intelligent Around View® Monitor

These work together to help drivers stay more alert, informed, and protected while driving. The addition of the Intelligent Rear View Mirror is the first of its kind. By affixing a high-resolution camera on the rear of the vehicle, drivers can switch out their traditional rear view mirror to a high-quality live feed. This is especially helpful if the seats (8 in total!) are full, or if cargo is blocking the mirror. Look at the difference this small detail, available at the flick of a button, makes:2018 Nissan Armada

It’s easy to see why the 2018 Nissan Armada is gearing up for a great year!

It could be a great year for you too. Check it out at Newton Nissan today!
