2018 Altima SV Trim Level
While the SR enhanced performance, the Altima SV is more for drivers who value luxury and convenience. The wheels are back down to 17 inches, but you have access to a remote engine start system with intelligent climate control.

2018 Altima SL Trim Level
The last and most advanced trim level actually comes in two forms.
