When you need to get from point A to point B, the 2018 Nissan Altima stays true to the job, returning an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway.
These days, you can find yourself sorting through a book-length menu of engine and transmission options for a single vehicle. While variety can be a perk, it can also be overwhelming. On the 2018 Nissan Altima, you don't have to worry about that. The 2.5L four-cylinder engine with 179 hp and automatic transmission is standard on all models, giving you one less thing to think about. That's plenty of punch for a commuter sedan, allowing you to focus on the custom trims and features that will make any drive cozy.
The 2018 Nissan Altima is available in four trims: S, SR, SV, and SL. The entry-level Altima S comes standard with cruise control, smart key ignition, and a rearview camera. If you're an audiophile, you'll enjoy the five-inch infotainment display, six-speaker sound system, Bluetooth® capability, and USB port. Upgrade to the SR trim to add paddle shifters, a sport-tuned suspension, and leatherette interior, or to the SV trim to get all those features plus blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and dual-zone climate control. The top-of-the-line SL trim packs so many features, it's a reason to buy in itself.
The highest-level SL trim makes any trip a first-class journey. Building off all the features of the SV, you can bask in the beat of a nine-speaker Bose® premium sound system, a seven-inch infotainment touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ capability. In addition to the entertainment, you'll get warm ambient lighting, a sunroof, and a heated front seat and steering wheel. While the 2018 Nissan Altima might look like a standard sedan from the outside, the bevy of perks on the SL trim offer a sports-car-like experience on the inside.
Whichever trim you choose, you can rest assured that you'll have the space you need for whatever the journey demands. With seating for five—upholstered in smooth leatherette and cloth if you opt for the SR trim—the 2018 Nissan Altima also has 15.4 cu-ft of trunk space. The trunk shape is uniquely wide and deep, and the back seats fold down with a 60/40 split. Plus, with 36.1 inches of rear-seat legroom, friends and family can stretch out for the journey.
