The 2018 Nissan Altima

September 11th, 2018 by

Port City Nissan is a registered Nissan dealership that gives you an opportunity to test-drive and purchase your favorite Nissan models. The 2018 Nissan Altima has a number of features that make it attractive for all buyers looking to purchase a mid-sized vehicle.

Interior Design

The 2018 Nissan Altima has a passenger seating space of five people, making it ideal for a small family. The car’s headroom and legroom are impressive and can accommodate five adults comfortably with the front seats being more comfortable due to their zero-gravity cushioning. When compared to its competitors, the 2018 Altima has more front-seat legroom compared to sedans in the same price range. The car’s truck has a 15.4 cubic-foot storage capacity that ensures you get more cargo space compared to those provided by the sedan’s competitors. Its low lift-over height will also make it easier for you to load your luggage into the trunk.


Exterior Design

The 2018 Altima features a stylish exterior and is available in camouflage paint and a daring and flashy style that makes it attractive to many sedan lovers. Its grille is V-shaped with a lower front bumper. The manufacturer has also fitted it with reshaped taillights from its predecessor. You will also be met with a new trunk lid and a rear bumper if you are used to the old Altima models. If you opt for the Altima SR, the exterior design features new wheels, fog lights, a black upholstery with blue stitching seats, and headlight covers that are smoked.


Infotainment and technology

You can expect the 2018 Altima to feature standard infotainment systems that are convenient and easy to use. The standard features for the model include Siri Eyes Free for hands-free messaging, 5.0 LCD, a USB port, a Bluetooth phone, and the voice control feature that is a conventional technology for the sedan. With the SV’s Technology package, you get a 7-inch display screen that is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Some of the features in the technology packages include 4G LTE, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a 7-inch LCD. The featured infotainment controls for the 2018 Altima include a touchscreen, a voice control, and redundant buttons that make each driver’s interaction with the car as smooth as possible.


Mechanical Performance

The model’s base 4L engine is designed to ensure that you can move from point A to B without any issues. If you are a driver who is used to automatic transmission, you might be concerned with the CVT that accompanies the sedan because you might find it slower. It also makes your engine too loud. For enhanced engine performance, you should consider the V6 engine because it will give you more power and performance although the $36,000 price tag can be a discouragement. If you want a fuel-saving sedan, the 2018 Nissan Altima is an ideal choice for you since it has an estimated EPA fuel economy of 38 mpg when driving on the highway and a 27 mpg when operating in the city. The V6 engine has a lower fuel economy of 22 MPG when driving in the city and 32 mpg when driving in the highway. When it comes to the comfort of the sedan, the car’s ride is smooth and composed just as most commuters would want it to be. The 2.5 DR edition, on the other hand, allows you to add aspects of sportiness to your journey. It is also important to note that the sedan comes in front-wheel drive.


The manufacturer has ensured that the 2018 Altima comes with improved safety features. The standard safety features for the model include an automatic emergency braking system, a rearview camera, and a forward collision warning that were an option for the 2017 model. At a higher cost, you can have navigation and cruise control services as standard features for the 3.5 SL trim model. Both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Altima five star ratings for its safety features, making it one of the most secure sedans currently in the market. Other safety features that come with the 2018 Altima are the rear cross traffic alert, parking sensors both front and rear, an adaptive cruise control, and a blind spot monitoring.



The new Altima boasts of features absent in its predecessor with the most outstanding features being the automatic emergency braking system and the adaptive cruise control that is standard in all the models.
