2018 Nissan Altima Review
One of the best options for cruising the streets of East Providence, Cranston, and Pawtucket is in a sedan. These incredibly efficient vehicles offer a surprising amount of interior space with all the performance and tech you could want. Since there are so many high-quality sedans on the market, it can be difficult to figure out which sedan is the best fit for you.
If you want performance and efficiency, one of the better choices is the new 2018 Altima. This incredible sedan has a lot to offer for all kinds of drivers. Learn more about the masterfully crafted 2018 Nissan Altima and discover if this fun sedan is best suited for your needs.
Nissan Altima Interior
A sedan wouldn’t be worth the price without a spacious and comfortable interior. Fortunately, the 2018 Altima provides more space for you than some SUVs do. When you’re behind the wheel, you can enjoy 40 inches of headroom and an astounding 45 inches of legroom. Your rear passengers aren’t neglected either, with 37.1 inches of headroom and 36.1 inches of legroom.
The interior also features several luxury add-ons, like a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and heated and leather-appointed front seats. If you’re more interested in hauling cargo, however, the Altima has a generous cargo capacity. Open the trunk and you’ll find 15.4 cubic feet of cargo space inside for you to take advantage of—more than most sedans can offer.
2018 Nissan Altima: Engine Specs
One of the best parts of a sedan is reliable performance. Standard on the base model is the 2.5L 4-cylinder DOHC engine that can produce an impressive 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. That power alone far exceeds most other base sedans on the market, but it doesn’t end there. You can upgrade to the 3.5L V6 engine that delivers an incredible 270 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque, so you’ll have all the power you need.
You can also enjoy a Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT®) to make the most out of every shift, so you can be sure that every bit of power in your Altima is being optimized. If that’s not good enough for you, you can use the paddle shifters in manual shift mode available on higher trim levels. With these, you can make the shifts yourself without ever having to take your hands off the wheel.

Nissan Media & Technology
A modern sedan wouldn’t be complete without some state-of-the-art technology. Fortunately, the 2018 Altima has plenty. The infotainment system is extremely advanced with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ connectivity, and it comes with a screen up to 7 inches long. Don’t forget you can upgrade your sound system to a 9-speaker Bose® Premium Audio System.
Tech isn’t just about entertainment, though. The 2018 Altima technology includes numerous driver-assistance features help keep you safe. You can drive with peace of mind knowing that Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking is keeping you alert and aware. When this system detects an imminent collision ahead and you don’t hit the brakes on time, the Nissan Altima can apply the brakes for you.
