    2018 Altima® 3.5 SL

    Performance

    3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine

    With the fuel-efficient 270-hp engine, you'll get both efficient performance and the long-lasting value you deserve. Amazing gas mileage and strong, smooth power delivery add up to a winning combination. [*]

    Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission)

    The Altima’s CVT virtually eliminates fixed gears by using a single metal belt that runs around two variable-diameter pulleys. Once a transmission isn’t limited by fixed gears, it can operate far more effectively. So whatever your right foot asks for, the CVT responds with the right rpm and engine speed.

    Paddle shifters with manual mode

    Paddle shifters allow you manual control at your fingertips.

    Active Understeer Control

    A Nissan first, the Altima is equipped with Active Understeer Control to help give you a smooth, controlled, and comfortable ride when you take a corner. The system senses understeer and oversteer and subtly applies braking power to the inside wheels when you are turning, helping to give you sharper handling.

    Exterior

    18" Aluminum-alloy wheels

    The Altima 3.5 SL is equipped with a set of 18-inch lightweight aluminum-alloy wheels and low-profile 235/45 R18 all-season tires. [*]

    Power sliding glass moonroof with one-touch open/close and tilt feature

    Enjoy the view through an expansive glass moonroof. The moonroof is powered to slide open and closed and tilt up and down all at the touch of a button.

    LED headlights with signature

    Altima’s available LED headlights with signature lighting make an unforgettable impression day or night.

    Folding heated outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators

    Subtle but practical, Altima’s powered heated outside mirrors offer flexibility in tight squeezes, while the LED turn signals provide extra awareness to surrounding vehicles and pedestrians.

    Front and Rear Sonar System

    Altima's Front and Rear Sonar System beeps when it detects static objects near the bumper while backing up, and increases in frequency the closer you get to help you maneuver in tight spaces. [*]

    Interior

    Nissan Navigation System

    Includes a 7" multi-touch-screen, Voice Recognition, maps with voice-guided turn-by-turn directions. [*]

    Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™

    Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are smarter ways to use your compatible smartphone in the car. They take many of the things you want to do with your compatible smartphone while driving and put them right on your car’s built-in display. [*]

    NissanConnect® Services powered by SiriusXM®

    Available NissanConnect® Services powered by SiriusXM® offers a suite of digital alerts and remote access features. Navigation, safety and convenience features are all accessible from your vehicle, compatible smartphone, or the web. [*]

    Bose® Premium Audio System with 7.0" color monitor

    The Bose® Premium Audio System fills the Altima with music of both depth and precision. Nine speakers channel sound throughout the vehicle, for an expansive musical experience in both the front and back seats. [*]

    Intelligent Cruise Control

    Intelligent Cruise Control uses radar to maintain a set speed and distance between you and the car in front of you, even braking to maintain that distance if necessary. The Nissan system can also operate at low speeds while conventional cruise control needs to typically be set at a higher speed for it to engage. [*]

    Auto-dimming inside rearview mirror

    A sensor in the mirror detects headlight glare during night driving. The mirror automatically dims to help decrease eye strain.

    HomeLink® Universal Transceiver

    The transceiver system conveniently consolidates the functions of up to three individual transmitters on the rearview mirror. With the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver, the driver is able to control a personalized combination of garage doors, security gates, and house lighting. [*]

    Leather-appointed seats

    Take a moment to indulge in Altima's plush interior. Leather-appointed seats and other unexpected upscale touches offer you and your passengers ultimate comfort and style.

    Heated front seats

    The first time you try heated seats on a cold morning, you’ll wonder how you ever did without as they quickly and efficiently warm things up for both you and your passenger.

    Heated steering wheel

    This available feature heats up in just seconds and can even be turned on remotely, so it's warm when you get in. You will never want to go through another chilly morning without one.

    Rear passenger air conditioning vents

    The air conditioning system is equipped with rear-passenger upper vents, keeping everyone cool from head to toe.

    Safety

    Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking

    Intelligent Forward Collision Warning can alert you to potential risks up ahead by monitoring the velocity and distance of the vehicle in front of the vehicle ahead of you. If Automatic Emergency Braking detects that you need to slow down to avoid a frontal collision, the system can alert you with visual and audible cues, then it can assist you by automatically applying pressure to the brakes to help avoid or mitigate a collision. [*]

    Blind Spot Warning

    Altima helps you out with lane changes too. When a car is detected in the blind spot area, an indicator in the driver's or front passenger's doors light up, and an icon appears on the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display. If you put on your turn signal while the vehicle is there, the indicator flashes and a warning chime alerts you. [*]

    Rear Cross Traffic Alert

    When you are in reverse, Rear Cross Traffic Alert helps detect vehicles approaching up to 66 feet away from either side. If an approaching vehicle is detected, the system provides visual and audio warnings. [*]
