2018 Nissan Altima Review

Overview
Practicality meets fun in the Nissan Altima. Its bold exterior embodies Nissan’s Energetic Flow design principles yet still offers plenty of room inside—plus there’s plenty of technology to keep you connected and protected. Choose from four models starting with the 2.5 S and moving through the fully equipped 3.5 SL. Active grille shutters add aerodynamic efficiency and the easy-fill tire alert system means you can fill your tires accurately without an air gauge. Nissan Connect is available to bring navigation entertainment and communication features like SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. And every Altima comes with driver-assist features like Automatic Emergency Braking and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning. But the Altima is more than just practical transportation. SR models come with a sport-tuned suspension and a 270-horse V-6 is available on SL models. Choose from a variety of colors option packages and Genuine Nissan Accessories and build an Altima that’s all yours. The Nissan Altima. It’s more than the practical choice.
Technology
The Nissan Altima isn’t just practical. It’s smart too! Available Nissan Connect brings navigation entertainment and communication features like SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration to a seven-inch color touchscreen. And available NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM turns your phone into a remote control for your Altima. Unlock doors start the engine monitor your Altima’s health and more. Add a nine-speaker Bose audio system and you’ll love every trip you take even your morning commute. The Nissan Altima. The connected practical car.
Safety
The Nissan Altima earned a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Every Altima comes with driver-assist features like Automatic Emergency Braking and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning. Additional features like Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert are available too. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System doesn’t just tell you when your tires are low—its standard Easy-Fill Tire Alert feature tells you when you’ve filled them properly too. No more fiddling around with air-pressure gauges! The Nissan Altima. Because safety makes sense.
Performance
The Nissan Altima is a practical car that’s also fun to drive. Its standard 2.5-liter inline four puts out 179 horsepower—and gets up to 38 miles to a gallon of gas. And there’s a 270-horse 3.5-liter V-6 available on SL models. Both engines come with Nissan’s Xtronic Constantly Variable Transmission. SR and SL models come with paddle shifters and manual-shift mode. And for the corners SR models come with a sport-tuned suspension that includes re-tuned dampers stiffer springs and thicker stabilizer bars. The Nissan Altima. The fun practical car.
