There’s no family sedan that can match the value of the 2018 Nissan Altima. Two engine options, a plethora of comfort features, and top safety systems make it a hard model to ignore. The Nissan Altima is available in 2.5 S, 2.5 SR, SR Special Edition, 2.5 SV, 2.5 SL, and 3.5 SL trim levels.

The Nissan Altima 3.5 SL boasts a powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to an Xtronic CVT® that delivers a thrilling 270 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque. That powertrain earns up to an EPA-estimated 22 city/32 hwy mpg*.
Two available driving modes, Drive and S, and paddle shifters provide drivers with an engaging driving experience unlike any other.
The 2018 Altima seats up to five passengers in a spacious cabin complete with upscale amenities. Available dual zone automatic temperature control allows the driver and front passenger to control their comfort levels. Available rear air vents keep rear passengers cool on hot summer days.
Nissan engineers designed the front seats with inspiration drawn from zero gravity seats used by astronauts. The seats offer premier comfort, help reduce fatigue, and provide more support on long road trips. Available heated front seats offer a more enjoyable driving experience in the winter.
The Nissan Altima performed well on safety tests and earned a spot on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Pick list. All 2018 Altima models come equipped with a standard RearView Monitor and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking.
Upgrading to the 2.5 SV trim adds Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert to the Nissan Altima. Drivers who opt for the 3.5 SL trim will enjoy peace of mind thanks to the Front and Rear Sonar System.
