2018 Nissan Altima

The 2018 Nissan Altima: Providing the Ultimate Safety and Convenience

The 2018 Nissan Altima can be summed up as a powerful, technology-filled, affordable midsize sedan. While the exterior design does not disappoint, for the 2018 model year, Nissan focused on updating the Altima’s interior features and technology. That’s why on all five 2018 trims levels, the Altima now comes standard with Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking. This is all part of Nissan’s mission to not only keep Nissan drivers safe, but also every other driver on the San Marcos roads.

The 2018 Altima comes in five trim levels with even the base coming with a host of standard features like a 5-inch infotainment display, Bluetooth technology, hands-free text messaging, and more. No matter the trim you choose, you can rest assured knowing that your Altima comes equipped with all the safety and convenience features you desire.

2018 Altima Interior Features

Along with providing a particularly comfortable and spacious cabin, the interior of the 2018 Nissan Altima revolves around technology. These tech features are designed to allow for the ultimate safety and convenience of the driver and passengers alike. For starters, the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display is positioned in the instrument cluster and shows call interactions, service warnings and more and is designed to reduce the amount of time a driver looks away from the road. Also inside, you’ll find an AM/FM/CD audio system with 5” color display and RearView Monitor, along with other technology features like Bluetooth® and Siri® Eyes Free.

Depending on the trim you choose will determine the other standard and available interior features. For example, going with the SL trim is going to get you leather upholstery. Plus, on the 2.5 SL and 3.5 SL trim, you can choose to go with the available new Zero Gravity bucket seats up front that are inspired by NASA. These seats have been described as some of the best in its class giving more legroom and back seat space than most midsize sedans on the market.

2018 Nissan Altima Exterior Features

The exterior of the 2018 Nissan Altima was designed with full attention to detail. Adding on to the sleek look of the Altima are the 16” x 7” steel wheels with bolt-on wheel covers, and the Intelligent Auto Headlights that turn on and off as needed. These headlights also react to your windshield wipers, turning on after four swipes. For a touch of aggressiveness, the 2018 Altima is equipped with dual chrome exhaust finishers, dual body-color power outside mirrors, and active grille shutters that automatically adjust to reduce drag. The exterior features of the 2018 Altima not only create the stunning design of this midsize sedan, but add further safety and convenience for both the driver and passengers.

2018 Nissan Altima Performance

The 2018 Altima comes standard with the Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) that instantly responds whatever RPM and speed the driver desires. Rather than used fixed gears, this transmission uses a single metal belt that runs around two variable-diameter pulleys that allow it to run much more efficiently.

In the 2018 model, drivers also get Understeer Control to assist in helping the driver better control the car around corners. This is actually a first for Nissan, and drivers are raving about the sharper handling around turns and corners. Along with CTV and Understeer Control providing a smooth and controlled ride, the Altima also comes equipped with ZF Sachs® shock absorbers that you’ll find mainly on luxury vehicles.

Of course, your performance features depend on the trim you choose. For instance, the Altima SR is designed to provide the ultimate driving experience with exciting performance. The exterior matches its performance with a subtle rear spoiler, sport suspension and smoked exterior lights.
