The 2018 Nissan Altima provides a great blend of style and comfort. Pair that with capable performance and a long list of standard and available features, and the Altima becomes a joy to drive on the roads of Philadelphia, Doylestown and Lansdale.
When researching the Altima, one thing you’ll have to consider the different trim levels offered. Each trim level comes with certain features, and since they’ve been modified for the 2018 model year, it gives us the opportunity to explain what each Altima brings to the table. Read on to learn more about the trim levels in the Altima from the sales team at Montgomeryville Nissan.
2018 Nissan Altima 2.5 S
The base trim of the 2018 Altima is the 2.5 S, which comes equipped with several helpful features and steady performance. The base engine on the Altima is a 4-cylinder, producing 179-horsepower, a capable offering for the daily commute. It’s a fuel-efficient vehicle, too, as it provides an EPA-estimated 27 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway1.
Savvy standard features include the intelligent forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking systems, which work to protect you, other vehicles and pedestrians. The standard rearview parking aid will let you know of objects and obstacles behind the Altima when putting the car in reverse.
For those tech-focused drivers, Bluetooth® technology comes standard. Make hands-free phone calls or stream music from your phone throughout the cabin.
2018 Nissan Altima 2.5 SR
This trim is for those drivers searching for a sporty feel. The 2.5 SR comes with 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels and a sport-tuned suspension for a more advanced feel while driving.
The paddle shifters with manual shift mode provide drivers with a bit of control over the Altima. Even though the car is equipped with an automatic transmission, you can shift as you like with the paddle shifters.
The SR Midnight Edition is for those who enjoy black, hence the name. This gives you 18” black alloy wheels, black outside mirrors, a black rear spoiler, and black exterior accents. Meanwhile, the SR Special Edition adds on the Nissan navigation system and Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ technology, providing a more intuitive experience inside the cabin.
2018 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV
The 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels might be the first thing you see when looking at the SV trim, but inside, a few tech features pitch in to help out. This trim adds blind spot warning, which can let you know when a vehicle is in your blind spot. The rear cross traffic alert comes in handy when backing up in a parking lot or driveway, with an alert when another vehicle is passing by.
The remote engine start system is a nice feature on this trim, allowing you to start up the Altima in the driveway before getting inside. Set the temperature with the climate control feature, too.
2018 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL
Enjoy a bit of luxury with the 2.5 SL, which offers leather-appointed seats for a softer feel, along with a Bose® premium audio system. Music, podcast and phone calls will sound clearer thanks to the sound you’ll have.
2018 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL
This trim is the lone one with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, and it’s easy to feel the power difference once taking the 3.5 SL for a drive. That’s because the engine produces 270-horsepower, a powerful performer when taking it out on the highway.
This carries a larger 7-inch touchscreen, a fun way to interact with the navigation system and Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ features.
