Two great cars. How do you decide?
When it comes to buying a new car, no one wants to be uninformed about what’s out there. And here at Newton Nissan, we do not want to ever pressure you into making a decision. So here are two great options out there for your next sedan. Keep reading to understand the key similarities and differences between them, so that you can make a well-informed decision!
2018 Nissan Altima
This new model year for the Nissan Altima brings with it many new standard features, including:
- Standard hands-free text messaging assistant,
- Standard Advanced Drive-Assist® Display,
- and Standard Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB).
These features combine to keep the driver alert and aware at all times, even when needing to stay connected on-the-go. In addition, also available is the Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, which warns the driver to a potential rear-end accident. It monitors the vehicle directly two cars ahead, and alerts the driver with both visual and audio warnings. Though the Malibu also offers a similar system, it can only monitor the car directly in front.
2018 Chevy Malibu
The Malibu for this year is not lacking in features itself, either. One noticeable difference in the increase in the size of the fuel tank–up from 13.0 gallons to 15.8 gallons on models with the 1.5 liter engine. The Altima, however, does make even that increase seem small,by offering a 18.0 gallon tank! An additional standard feature now on all Malibu models is the rear-view camera, which makes backing up a breeze. Also available are many different trim levels, which vary in both packages and pricing.
Standards Sweeten the Deal
When you’re looking for a car, of course you want good features. Nissan makes that easy by making so many great features standard–at no extra cost to you–ranging from connectivity to safety. But you also want an affordable price. Nissan again offers a lower starting price than the Chevy. The bottom line is that you can’t go wrong either way. Check the choices out for yourself, and we hope to see you soon!
