It would be too easy to make puns about buying the “Altimate” vehicle for you and your family. Then again, the 2018 Nissan Altima makes it that easy. Downers Grove IL shoppers continue to select this model thanks to its attractive exterior, high-quality cabin materials and host of available features. This year, the model is offered in a total of six trims: 2.5 S, 2.5 SR, SR Special Edition, 2.5 SV, 2.5 SL and 3.5 SL. Which will you choose?

First thing’s first, you’ll want to know what comes standard. A starting MSRP of $23,140 naturally makes the 2018 Nissan Altima a tempting vehicle, but only if it offers all the latest in automotive technology. We think you’ll be impressed. Standard features include Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Bluetooth hands-free phone and streaming audio, Siri Eyes Free, a rearview monitor and Nissan Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition. These are just what’s offered in the base trim.

Power and efficiency in the 2018 Nissan Altima

A midsize sedan is nothing if not a practical option. For this reason, you want a vehicle that won’t hurt you on your daily commute. We think the 2018 Nissan Altima is a worthy contender with an EPA-estimated 27 city and 38 highway mpg rating for the 2.5-liter engine.

Speaking of the engine, this DOHC 4-cylinder offers up 179 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, which is plenty powerful for the size. Say, though, that you want even more oomph every time you press the gas? The top trim has a 3.5-liter V6 that doles out a whopping 270 horsepower and 251 pound-feet of torque. No matter which engine option you prefer, the Nissan Altima has an Xtronic CVT to keep gearshifts smooth and seamless.

With fantastic features and potent engine options, what else do you need to know about the 2018 Nissan Altima? The model is also roomy enough to comfortably seat five within the 101.9 cubic feet of passenger volume, while still offering a full 15.4 cubic feet of trunk space.
