Bigger & Better: Trunk or Treat 2018

We loved Trunk or Treat 2018!

Trunk or Treat 2018

Easily our favorite day of the year, we here at Newton Nissan South love getting to see our community turn out for Trunk or Treat. It’s also an important day for us, because it is a day that we don’t promote ourselves. Instead, we promote our community. This year, the Cascade High School Band Boosters helped us decorate over 40 trunks that we filled with enough candy for all the afternoon’s visitors! In return, we were able to donate some funds to help them continue to grow their program.

Additionally, the National Honor Society partnered up with our second community organization, the Humane Society of Shelbyville-Bedford County! They teamed up to also decorate several trunks to join in the fun. And, of course, our very own Newton Panda Bear made her annual appearance!

We could not have asked for better weather for Trunk or Treat this year! The students & their cars showed up early and began setting up: decorating their cars, trucks, and SUVs into spooky entrances, fun characters, science labs, and music-filled pop culture references, such as The Wizard of Oz and Star Wars. We had a friendly competition over whose trunk was the best, and we brought in fun bouncy houses and, new for this year, a mechanical bull for the kids to enjoy! We had a much bigger turnout this year, and we were so proud and happy to host everyone and serve lots of pizza and candy for a few hours!

One of the winners was an adorable little white car, simply decorated as…well watch this video to find out:

 

So, why do we do this?

Because we here believe that our customers are more important than our cars; our community is more valuable than our bottom line. And to show this, we simply want to be a part of each others’ lives. And Trunk or Treat is one of those days that allows us to host a fun event, get to know our community, and give back.

Thank you for being a part of our community!

We hope to see you next year at Trunk or Treat 2019!

Top Ten Things to Know about the 2019 Nissan Altima


2019 Nissan Altima

We’re excited about the all-new 2019 Nissan Altima! Are you?

We’re excited about the launch of this all-new design of the classic Nissan sedan we know and love! From exterior, to the engine, to the interior–this Altima has you covered. To get you excited too (it’ll be here soon!), we wanted to give you our top-five things you need to know about the 2019 Nissan Altima.

Here are the top things you need to know about it:

Redesign

The new Altima has been truly overhauled for a sleeker, sportier feel. Check out this head-to-head comparison with the 2018 Altima:

2019 Nissan AltimaThis sixth-generation Altima now has a deeper Nissan-signature V-motion grille, a floating roof like others in the Nissan lineup, and sharper lines. In fact, the new Altima is 1.1 inches lower in height than previous models.

Smart Technology

The 2019 Nissan Altima is leading the way in its class with the addition of the available ProPilot Assist. This is available on the SV, SL, and Platinum trim levels. ProPilot Assist was included on 2018 models like the Rogue; read more about that feature here. Also available on these trims is the new Rear Automatic Braking (RAB). RAB helps the driver detect stationary objects when backing up, and, if necessary, will apply the break to avoid a collision.

Three features are standard on all trims:

  1. Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)
  2. Intelligent Forward Collision Warning (I-FCW), and
  3. Intelligent Driver Alertness (I-DA)

All of these combine to create a 360 safety shield around the 2019 Nissan Altima drivers and passengers, as Nissan continues to forge forward in vehicle safety technology.

Here are the top 10 things you need to know about the 2019 Nissan Altima:

  1. Variable Compression Turbo Engine – the world’s first! This combines power & fuel efficiency (combined MPG at 29!)
  2. It’s the 6th generation! The Altima is one of Nissan’s best selling vehicles, and it has been for 25 years.
  3. Brand-new design – it’s lower, wider, and sleeker than ever before.
  4. The backseat room is great for your passengers with long legs!
  5. All-new 8-in touch screen with Apple Car & Android Auto is now standard.
  6. The price is right – still very affordable with better features
  7. New technology: Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Intelligent Forward Collision Warning (I-FCW), and Intelligent Driver Alertness (I-DA)
  8. Available SR Sport Package
  9. Electronic power steering to help drivers stay in their lane
  10. Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is now available!

These are adapted from the following video. Watch it for a fun review from one of the first people to test drive the Altima!
