The New Year is almost here, and that means new Nissan models continue to roll out. The 2019 Nissan Altima, with its major design updates, was a big hit, and now two more newly designed models have been introduced: the 2019 Nissan Maxima and the 2019 Nissan Murano.
A New Generation
This is the 3rd generation re-design of this popular crossover, which focuses on giving upper-class style an affordable price tag. This year’s exterior refresh includes an upgrade on the front v-motion grille, redesigned headlights and taillights, and new wheel designs. On the inside, the trim is updated with leather features on both the seats, armrests, and center console in the Platinum trim.
New Standard Features
The 2019 Nissan Murano also two new standard features on all trims:
- Intelligent Driver Alertness
This smart technology actually learns the driver’s steering patterns and helps alert the driver when drowsy driving is detected.
- Rear Door Alert (RDA)
This feature alerts the driver to check the rear seats when exiting the vehicle. By model year 2022, Nissan aims to have RDA on all four-door trucks, sedans, and SUVs.
Available Upgraded Safety Shield Technology
Also available is the full lineup of Nissan’s safety technology, known as Safety Shield 360. It includes 6 key advanced safety and driver-assist technologies designed to improve all around confidence for drivers. Safety Shield 360 includes:
- Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection,
- Blind Spot Warning,
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert,
- Lane Departure Warning,
- High Beam Assist headlights, and
- Rear Automatic Braking
This technology is standard for the 2019 Nissan Murano’s Platinum trim and as a part of the additional SL Technology Package.
The 2019 Nissan Murano is coming soon! Until then, check out our 2018 Nissan Murano lineup, which still features many great safety and convenience technology! We hope to see you soon at Newton Nissan South in Shelbyville, TN!

We’re wishing you a happy, safe holiday season — filled with great memories, food, and music!
We loved Trunk or Treat 2018!
Easily our favorite day of the year, we here at Newton Nissan South love getting to see our community turn out for Trunk or Treat. It’s also an important day for us, because it is a day that we don’t promote ourselves. Instead, we promote our community. This year, the Cascade High School Band Boosters helped us decorate over 40 trunks that we filled with enough candy for all the afternoon’s visitors! In return, we were able to donate some funds to help them continue to grow their program.
Additionally, the National Honor Society partnered up with our second community organization, the Humane Society of Shelbyville-Bedford County! They teamed up to also decorate several trunks to join in the fun. And, of course, our very own Newton Panda Bear made her annual appearance!
We could not have asked for better weather for Trunk or Treat this year! The students & their cars showed up early and began setting up: decorating their cars, trucks, and SUVs into spooky entrances, fun characters, science labs, and music-filled pop culture references, such as The Wizard of Oz and Star Wars. We had a friendly competition over whose trunk was the best, and we brought in fun bouncy houses and, new for this year, a mechanical bull for the kids to enjoy! We had a much bigger turnout this year, and we were so proud and happy to host everyone and serve lots of pizza and candy for a few hours!
One of the winners was an adorable little white car, simply decorated as…well watch this video to find out:
So, why do we do this?
Because we here believe that our customers are more important than our cars; our community is more valuable than our bottom line. And to show this, we simply want to be a part of each others’ lives. And Trunk or Treat is one of those days that allows us to host a fun event, get to know our community, and give back.
Thank you for being a part of our community!
We hope to see you next year at Trunk or Treat 2019!
Trunk or Treat is hands-down one of our favorite events at Newton Nissan South. It is such a fun way to get family and friends dressed up, eating, and having fun together! This year, we’re hoping for it be bigger and better!
As you may know, Trunk or Treat is not just about having fun. We also use it to give back to the Cascade Band, as well as other organizations in our community. Some of those include In addition, we are offering sponsorships this year for business to help us support our community. We are happy to have Global Homes, Inc as part of our team this year! One of the new elements they are helping make happen is Go Bonanza’s Photobooth. That’s right! We’ll be having a photo booth and printing your family’s photo right on the spot!
We’re really looking forward to this event, and we hope you are too! Come prepared for lots of pizza, games, and candy, of course! We can’t wait to see you! Rain, shine, cold, snow–we’ll be here, having fun!
Please let us know if you have any questions, or if you would like to be a sponsor for this event. We’d love to have you! Email email@example.com for more information! ca
The Nissan Altima is 25 years old! The photo above shows the very first generation next to the latest generation, which debuts very soon: the 2019 Altima. This first generation was produced from 1993-1997. It replaced the Nissan Stanza in the US, which was known as the Bluebird in Japan.
The second generation (above) was manufactured between 1998-2001. This redesign offered a sportier apperance, increased horsepower, and 15-inch tires.
The third generation of the Nissan Altima was made between 2002-2006. This all-new design was widely popular, and receives credit for reviving the Nissan brand in the US. Again, the horsepower increased with an award-winning engine upgrade.
The fourth generation was produced from 2007 to 2012. This was the first to use the Xtronic transmission system, which is now standard on several other Nissan models.
The fifth generation, made from 2013-2018, became the one of the most innovative & premium Altima in its history. Major developments included advanced technology features. It’s in this span of time that this Altima remained the best selling nameplate for Nissan up until the redesigned Nissan Rogue crossover passed it in 2017.
Finally comes the sixth & most current generation of the Nissan Altima (below). With updated styling, the best technology available, and two all-new engine upgrades, this generation is aimed at re-energizing the sedan segment of the market!
What do you think of the new 2019 Nissan Altima?
Let us know & be on the lookout for it, beginning in the Fall of this year!
Newton Nissan South is proud to sponsor local non-profits, schools, sports teams, and community events in and around Bedford County! This month in the spotlight is the Boys & Girls Club of Bedford County! You may recognize this name as a national program, but did you know that they are located right in our backyard here in Shelbyville as well?
The primary goal of the Boys & Girls Club here is to provide year round after school programming for kids ages 5-13. Unlike other programs, the Boys & Girls Club is not limited by the poverty line on who can be helped. Instead, it is a heavily discounted program so that anyone in need can receive affordable after school care for their children.
What They Do
The Boys & Girls Club is a well-rounded program that not only seeks to help students academically, but also give them life skills that they can take home with them. On top of homework help, they plan field trips like swimming and bowling to keep the kids active. They rely on volunteers helping out with this, many of whom are TN Promise college students. If you are interested in volunteering or enrolling your child, you can call their office at (931) 735-6525.
Upcoming Event: End of Summer Carnival
The way Newton Nissan South got involved with the Boys & Girls Club was by becoming a sponsor of their upcoming event, the End of Summer Carnival on July 27th. This is an annual event to celebrate the kids with awards, games, and a water slide. Director Shawn Hart said, “They’ve worked hard, so we plan this event to celebrate them!”
How You Can Help
Right now, the Boys & Girls Club is located at 1055 Madison Street in Shelbyville. “Our sign and building is very small,” Shawn said, “so we are hoping to buy an old school building in the next five years.” Right now, they are only able to hold about 100 kids at a time, and they cannot provide meals without a working kitchen. The school would allow them to provide meals, have more kids involved in the program, and have a full gym to use!
If you would like to donate to the Bedford County Club, please visit this website: https://www.bgcrc.net/
Toward the bottom of the page where it says “Which company or program will you be submitting to?”, simply enter “Shelbyville” or “Bedford County Club” so that your donation is allocated!
We are so happy to help the Boys & Girls Club of Bedford County, and we hope you will help them too!
Good Grades = Free Car
Ashley, a 10th grader from Community High School in Shelbyville, won a brand new car this weekend because of her good grades. Ashley was so shocked, saying, “I just can’t believe it…I mean, ME?!” She will be getting her permit soon, and is excited to begin driving her new car! Her little sister and mom were also surprised and thankful for this gift to their family. 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.
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 Ashley doesn’t have to pay anything for her new car,” says Mike Abbondanza, Newton Nissan’s Vice President. 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.
Other Fun Happenings This Year
But there were more prizes to be had! We had several trivia rounds for other students to win smaller prizes like gift cards and very large candy bars!
Add that to free food and a drawing for a free oil change for the parents — it was a fun night for all! We love celebrating all these students, who have worked so hard all year long, and we especially love giving back to our community in this way. If you weren’t able to join us this year, we hope that you will next year for the Newton Nissan Car Giveaway!
Congratulations again to Ashley!
