The 2018 Nissan Altima
Performance and Economy
The Altima’s standard 4-cylinder engine delivers a healthy 179 horsepower and incorporates a new intake system to give you smooth power at all engine speeds. The Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) reduces friction by up to 40% while giving you an optimal gear ratio at all times. These elements contribute to the 4-cylinders class-leading fuel efficiency of 8.7L/100km in the city. The 179hp 4-cylinder engine also delivers better fuel economy than before with a cool 46 MPG (6.3L/100km) on the highway thanks to its advanced Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVVTCS).
Exterior and Handling
The Altima’s exterior redesign is evident with a wide, aggressive stance and bold styling features in the front. While retaining the same wheelbase as the previous Altima, the 2018 model has a 36mm-wider front and rear track and deeper fenders to add to the bold and sophisticated exterior. The long, sloped roofline not only serves as an aesthetic touch, but also provides improved aerodynamics and economy. With a sporty 4-wheel independent suspension, the Altima is as agile as it looks. Features like class-exclusive Active Understeer Control make for refined and responsive handling.
Interior and Technology
