7 Good New Nissans Under $35,000 for 2019

Nissan builds a wide variety of value-oriented cars and SUV for a variety of needs. While its lineup has gotten stale in recent years, the company has made strides with regard to fuel efficiency and safety features, and there’s likely a great new Nissan out there for just about anyone. Here we’ll discuss seven of our favorite new Nissans available for around $35,000.

2019 Nissan Altima

2019 Nissan Altima

Nissan’s mainstream midsize sedan, the Altima gets a full redesign for 2019. For the first time ever, all-wheel drive (AWD) is an option, making it one of just a few midsize sedans on sale today to offer 4-wheel traction. Two different powertrains are offered. Entry-level models come with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder putting out 188 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. For those in search of more power, the Altima’s upmarket engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder good for 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Both of these engines come paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). AWD is only available on the base engine — the turbo is front-wheel drive (FWD) only. With the base engine, the Altima returns 31 or 32 miles per gallon in combined driving, depending on trim level, while AWD models achieve 29 or 30 mpg. The turbo achieves 29 mpg combined. The new Altima comes standard with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Safety features like automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic emergency braking, radar cruise control, lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are standard on everything but the base model. Buyers can get a loaded Platinum model with AWD for around $35,000, which gets you 19-in wheels, a 360-degree surround view monitor, Bose audio, ProPilot Assist and an 8-in touchscreen.

2019 Nissan Rogue

2019 Nissan Rogue

One of the best selling vehicles in America, the Rogue comes with plenty of cargo room, an efficient powertrain and a good array of safety features. Powering the Rogue is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder making 170 hp paired with a CVT. When equipped with basic FWD, the Rogue returns 25 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway — opting for AWD sees each of these figures reduced by one. Also available is a Rogue Hybrid that makes a combined 175 hp and returns 33 mpg city/35 mpg hwy with FWD, or 31 mpg city/34 mpg hwy with AWD. While it’s due for a redesign, the Rogue comes with most of the safety features and infotainment tech available in the new Altima, but in a more practical package. A base Rogue starts at $26,000 and tops out right at $35,000. A loaded Rogue SL or SL Hybrid comes with 19-in wheels, navigation, leather seats, ProPilot Assist, LED headlights and a surround view camera system. Find a Nissan Rogue for sale

2019 Nissan Maxima

2019 Nissan Maxima

While the Altima serves the masses, the Maxima offers a slightly more premium experience, with sharper styling, more power and tighter driving dynamics. Power comes from a 3.5-liter V6 putting out a healthy 300 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque driving the front wheels via a CVT. Upscale models get leather seats, a Bose audio system, a heated steering wheel, a panoramic moonroof, 19-in wheels, Ascot leather, a sport suspension and more. Pricing starts at just over $34,000, so buyers drawing a hard line at $35k will need to stick with a base model, which comes standard with LED lighting, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and automatic emergency braking. Still, the Maxima represents a good option for anyone in the market for a sedan but finding the mainstream offerings to be a little too bland. Find a Nissan Maxima for sale

2019 Nissan Murano

2019 Nissan Murano

As the Maxima is to the Altima, the Murano is to the Rogue. Competing with vehicles like the Honda Passport, Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe, the Murano offers more refinement and a better driving experience than the basic Rogue, despite the fact that both are similarly sized and offer room for five people. Powering the Murano is a 3.5-liter V6 putting out 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque. As with most Nissans, the Murano comes powered by a CVT — good for fuel economy, but not great for driving dynamics and power delivery. Fuel economy comes in at 21 mpg city/28 mpg hwy, regardless of whether you opt for FWD or optional AWD. At the $35,000 mark, buyers are looking at either an AWD equipped Murano S, which comes standard with automatic emergency braking along with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, or a FWD SV, which adds blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a power driver’s seat, remote start and more. Factor in financial incentives and you might be able to afford a little more. Find a Nissan Murano for sale

2019 Nissan Leaf

2019 Nissan Leaf

Nissan’s all-electric offering, the Leaf is capable of traveling up to 150 miles on a single charge, while the extended-range Leaf Plus, which comes with a larger battery, can cover 226 miles. This is a respectable figure, putting the Leaf on par with other EVs like the Chevrolet Bolt and Tesla Model 3. The Leaf Plus also comes standard with DC Fast Charge, which greatly reduces charging times. While the Leaf Plus starts at around $37,500 for a basic S model, government tax incentives effectively reduce the price of any Leaf by about $7,500. On top of this, many individual states offer incentives as well. This means that buyers looking for a $35,000 Leaf have a few different options. Assuming any Leaf comes with at least $7,500 in tax savings, we recommend a loaded Leaf SL Plus. The SL Plus carries a price of around $43,000, which translates to $36,000 after tax savings. While this is over our $35,000 budget, we think the presence of ProPilot Assist on the SL Plus model alone is worth stretching that budget a bit, not to mention that the Leaf’s top trim also comes with leather seats, a Bose audio system, a surround-view monitor and blind spot monitoring. And plus, any additional state incentives are likely to bring that price down to the $35,000 range. Find a Nissan Leaf for sale

2019 Nissan Pathfinder

2019 Nissan Pathfinder

The Pathfinder is Nissan’s 7-passenger midsize family crossover, and counts vehicles like the Volkswagen Atlas, Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride as its main competitors. Under the hood is a 3.5-liter V6 making 284 hp and 259 lb-ft of torque. While it’s due for a redesign, the Pathfinder offers good value, great space and a variety of compelling features that allow it to remain competitive today. The Pathfinder starts at just over $32,000 for a basic S model with FWD, and tops out at around $45k in loaded Platinum trim with AWD. At the $35,000 mark, buyers requiring AWD should look to a simple S model, which costs around $34,000 once you add AWD, and comes standard with automatic emergency braking, Sirius satellite radio, fold-flat second- and third-row seating and a 3-zone automatic temperature control system. If FWD is enough to suit your needs, a 2WD SV model gains fog lights, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic detection, intelligent cruise control, remote start and more for just over $35k. Find a Nissan Pathfinder for sale

2019 Nissan Frontier

2019 Nissan Frontier

Given that it was last redesigned in 2005, it’s kind of funny to put the Frontier on any list of new Nissans, but hear us out. Just because it’s the oldest new vehicle on sale in the United States today doesn’t mean the Frontier is without merit. If you’re looking for a simple workhorse of a truck, there’s a lot to like about the Frontier, which carries a starting price of just over $20,000. Available in both extended and crew cab body styles and with two different bed lengths, two different engines and a manual or automatic transmission, buyers have a lot of options when it comes to spec’ing out a Frontier that meets their needs. For $35,000, buyers can get a crew cab, 4-wheel drive Frontier Pro-4X with an automatic transmission. The Pro-4X comes with great off-road features like a Bilstein suspension, a locking rear differential, skid plates over the oil pan, fuel tank and transfer case, a navigation system and a 10-speaker Rockford Fosgate audio system. While it’ll feel pretty dated inside and lacks all modern features, the Frontier is a good overall value, if you can tolerate technology from the mid 2000s. Find a Nissan Frontier for sale
