Nissan Altima Gets A Small Price Hike For 2018

Nissan has just released U.S. pricing details for the 2018 Altima, confirming that the refreshed model gets a slight price jump over the 2017 range.

The 2018 Nissan Altima range begins with the Altima 2.5 S priced from $24,025 including the $885 destination and handling fee. By comparison, the 2017 model started at $23,335 but that was for the entry-level 2.5, a variant no longer offered.

Moving up in the range is the Altima 2.5 SR priced from $25,085 and then the 2.5 SV which starts at $26,670. The selection of variants offered with the 179 hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is rounded off by the $29,880 Altima 2.5 SL.

Customers looking for more grunt and features can opt for the 3.5 SL with a 270 hp V6 for $34,395.

Despite the small price increases across the range, the 2018 Altima does receive a host of new features, including Automatic Emergency Braking and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning as standard. The 3.5 SL also has Intelligent Cruise Control and NissanConnect with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.

    Nissan made the Altima ugly with this model. To me, it looks at least better than the Maxima

    2019 Altima will be all new. Probably debut at Chicago or New York Auto Show.

    Drove one of these in Florida for a week. Makes a great rental. And that’s about it.

    • Obsequious Lickspittle

      Me too. It didn’t break down. That’s about it.

    With the new Camry and Accord (whether you love them or hate them), Nissan needs the new Altima to come out soon. I like the current Altima’s looks, but I have to be honest, it’s quickly becoming boring and bland. The drive itself it simple. As said by someone else, it makes a great rental; that’s about all.
