2018 Nissan Altima

Introducing the 2018 Nissan Altima

A combination of handsome styling, an ultra comfortable interior, and impressive gas mileage makes the 2018 Nissan Altima a well-rounded mid-sized sedan that is a great fit for your driving needs. 

Form and Function

With exterior body lines that were born in the wind tunnel, the Altima not only looks good, but it is functional too. The sedan's sleek aerodynamics along with Active Grill Shutters helps contribute to the Altima's extraordinary gas mileage. 

Keeping You Comfortable

Nissan has made comfort inside the Altima's interior a priority. There is seating for five in the roomy cabin. Invitingly plush seats are designed to respond to pressure points to help prevent fatigue for all-day driving. Luxurious soft leather seats are also available to provide you with premium quality. Soft-touch materials are prevalent throughout the interior. A driver-centric layout provides controls and displays that are easy to use and read. A heated steering wheel, heated seats, and dual-zone automatic temperature controls are all available to keep you and your passengers at the right temperature, no matter the weather conditions outside. All together, the Altima provides you with a quiet, tranquil environment - making every drive a pleasure. 

Features and Technology

The Altima has plenty of available features to keep you connected and make your driving experience even better. You can enter the Altima and use its push button start without taking the key fob out of your pocket or bag, thanks to the standard Nissan Intelligent Key system. Once you are inside, one of the first things you will notice is the available 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system with a back-up camera. With Nissan Connect, Apple Car Play, and Android Auto, you can connect your compatible phone to the infotainment system via Bluetooth to stream music, place hands-free calls and texts, and even stay connected with your favorite social media apps. Standard steering wheel controls allow you to control the infotainment system, Bluetooth calls, and cruise control without taking your hands off the wheel. With the 4-inch advanced Driver Assist Display, you can receive information about directions, Bluetooth, and driving aids with a quick glance at your instrument cluster. Nissan also offers a state-of-the-art remote engine start system with Intelligent Climate Control, which automatically adjusts the cabin temperature to make it just right when you get in no matter what season it is.

The Driving Experience  

There are two power options for the Altima. The first is a potent, yet efficient, 179 horsepower 4-cylinder engine that yields an extraordinary 38 Highway MPG.* For more excitement, Nissan's legendary 270 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 is also available. Even with the substantial boost in power, the V6 engine is still capable of an impressive 32 highway MPG*, thanks in part to Nissan's automatic Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT), which comes standard on the Altima.
Handling and ride quality is smooth thanks to the Altima's rear multi-link suspension. Steering is further enhanced thanks to Active Understeer Control, which increases cornering capability by reading inputs and, if needed, applies the brakes to the appropriate wheels to help steer through the turn.     

Safety is Key

Nissan has engineered the Altima to keep you and your passengers safe. Not only has it been designed and equipped with many safety features to achieve top safety ratings from NHTSA and IIHS, they have also included the latest in technology to prevent an accident in the first place in every Altima. These features include:

  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Emergency Braking - Monitors your speed and senses the proximity to the vehicle ahead of you as well as the vehicle ahead of them. A warning is provided if you need to slow down, and it can also apply braking if you fail to respond. They system will also apply the brakes if a collision is unavoidable, helping to reduce the impact
  • Blind Spot Warnings - Detect the presence of vehicles to the side of the Altima using radar. Warning indicators alert you if the system detects a vehicle to help you during lane changes. 
  • Cross Traffic Monitor - Sensors detect vehicles approaching from either side when you are backing up and provides a warning.
