The New 2018 Nissan Altima Brings a Blend of Sophisticated Style and Sporty Performance to Your Memphis, TN Area Drive

As crossovers and SUVs gain ground in markets previously strongholds of the mid-size family car, more automakers are making their eponymous sedans models to stand out from the rest. But one remains distinct, just as it always has, bringing together a spacious, comfortable, and tech-savvy interior with the highly efficient ride and cutting-edge safety and driver-assist features that have kept it a pleasure to drive. That mid-size sedan is the Nissan Altima, and since it returned afresh to our Memphis neighborhood for the 2018 model year, it has already reaffirmed its favorite status among commuters and road-trippers alike. Discover what everyone's talking about here at Jim Keras Nissan!

Interior and Technology

Approach with Nissan Intelligent Key®, and you gain access to an inviting interior under an optional power sliding glass moonroof, great for a touch of Mother Nature on agreeable days, in which more than 100 cubic feet of passenger space sprawls. Choose from cloth, sport cloth, sport Prima-Tex®-appointed, or leather-trimmed seating, available heated in front, power-adjustable for the driver, and with two-way driver lumbar support, and your excursion begins at the height of comfort. Just load up the roomy 15.4-cubic-foot trunk, set the available dual-zone automatic temperature control to your liking, and prepare to head out.

In the cockpit, 2018 Altima makes available infotainment systems in 5- and 7-inch options to put control of entertainment and vehicle settings within reach for the duration. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay come standard, too, at the lineup's midrange, simplifying extending your smartphone's features to adjustment in-dash. Factor in an optional Nissan Navigation System for turn-by-turn guidance and the availability of Nissan Voice Recognition for adjusting navigation and audio settings, and it's easy to set a course for your destination. An optional nine-speaker Bose® Premium Audio System can even take your road mix from daily-drive soundtrack to day-trip anthem.

Power and Performance

Now, tap push-button ignition. Your selection of one of two engines springs to life. Standard in new Altima trims from 2.5 S and 2.5 SR to 2.5 SV and 2.5 SL, you'll find a 179-horsepower, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder, capable of putting out up to 177 pound-feet of torque. What's more, it's economical with fuel, offering up to an EPA-estimated 27 miles per gallon in a city like Collierville, 38 mpg down the highway to Cordova, and combined mileage of 31 mpg. Reach the 3.5 SL trim, and you can look forward to the adrenalized thrills of a high-performance 270-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6, shelling 251 pound-feet of turning and pulling power for the pleasure cruise to Lakeland or Barlett. Bring a smooth-shifting Xtronic CVT® transmission and an independent strut front and multi-link rear suspension into the mix, the latter sport-tuned with retuned dampers, stiffer springs, and larger stabilizer bars in select trims, along with an Advanced Drive-Assist® Display to showcase critical metrics, and the stage is set for an enjoyable driving experience.

Safety and Driver-Assist Features

On the road, you can expect Nissan Altima to remain the model of drive-time security that's kept it delivering peace of mind to drivers for generations. That's owing to both the even keel afforded by vehicle dynamic control with a traction control system as well as standard driver-assist features like Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking, which help stave off accidents. You can even avail yourself of options like fog lights, Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Intelligent Cruise Control. These make it a breeze not only to keep aware of your surroundings but also to remain at a preset speed and safe distance from other vehicles along the way. What's more, a standard RearView Monitor joins forces with an available front and rear sonar system to make parking with situational awareness a matter of course.
