The head-turning 2018 Nissan Altima reimagines what it means to be a four-door sedan in the modern era, from its improved standard safety features to its sporty new take on mainstream performance.
The 2018 Nissan Altima is available in seven trims: the Altima 2.5 S; Altima 2.5 SR; Altima SR Midnight Edition; Altima SR Special Edition; Altima 2.5 SV; Altima 2.5 SL; and the Altima 3.5 SL.
The Nissan Altima’s base engine is a 179-horsepower, 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder, which produces 177-lb-ft of torque and earns an impressive 38 MPG on the highway.* If you are in the market for a little more giddy-up, consider upgrading to the 270-horsepower, 251-lb-ft of torque, 3.5-liter V6 engine, which still gets a respectable 32 highway MPG. For a more refined driving experience, the 2018 Nissan Altima also comes with an Xtronic® CVT transmission for deadly-smooth shifting and incredibly quiet power.
Everyone is impressed by the Nissan Altima’s high standards on safety—even the experts. The Nissan Altima has earned a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in addition to a receiving the much coveted Top Safety Pick+ title from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The 2018 Nissan Altima features standard Automatic Emergency Braking and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning. Available safety tech also includes rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot warning.
Some cars are good at delivering power, others at offering comfort, and others still at providing safety. Few are good at everything, but the 2018 Nissan Altima is the full package. Test drive it today at Rothrock Nissan.
