Depending on the trim level you choose, one of two engines powers this front-wheel drive. The 2.5-liter Dual Overhead Cam 16-valve 4-cylinder generates 179 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and 177 lb.-ft. of torque while getting up to an EPA-estimated 38 highway MPG and 27 city MPG with the Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission. The 3.5L 24-valve V6 delivers 270 horsepower at 6,400 RPM and 251 lb.-ft. of torque while getting up to 32 highway MPG and 22 city MPG. It is paired with the Xtronic CVT® that can be controlled through paddle shifters with manual shift mode. The front uses independent strut suspension while the rear relies on multi-link independent rear suspension. Sport-tuned suspension is also available.


The seats of the 2018 Nissan Altima can be covered with cloth, Sport Cloth, Sport Prima-Tex™, or leather, with built-in heating available for both the steering wheel and the front seats. Leather is also available for the steering wheel and the shift knob. The driver seat adjusts in up to 8 power ways with 4 power adjustments available for the front passenger. The seatbacks in the rear row fold down in a 60/40-split so you can accommodate longer or larger cargo.

2018 Nissan Altima Interior


With the NissanConnect® infotainment system, you can hook up your compatible smartphone through Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™. This combination lets you use the colorful display screen, which measures 5 or 7 inches, to call people on your contact list, select radio stations, or stream music files from your device via Bluetooth® wireless. You can upgrade the standard AM/FM with CD audio system and six speakers to the Bose® Premium Audio, which contains nine speakers that have been tailored to cabin acoustics. Your music choices include an available 3-month complimentary trial access of SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. Its over-150 radio stations include commercial-free music, live pro sports, and exclusive talk. Allowing individual settings for you and your front passenger is the available Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control. In the rear, large vents ensure that those seated in the back receive climate comfort. Head backward and the Rearview Monitor shows the view behind you with colored guidelines so you can judge how close you are to potential hazards.


Intelligence Forward Collision Warning tells you if you’re about to hit something up front with Automatic Emergency Braking stopping your sedan to help prevent an accident. To make changing lanes more convenient, Blind Spot Warning lets you know if another vehicle is in your blind zone. Back up from a parking spot and Rear Cross Traffic Alert warns you if approaching cars are about to cross your path. If an accident does occur, Zone Body construction with front and rear crumple zones divert harmful impact energy away from all riders.
