Nissan’s striking lineup of crossovers continues with the 2018 Nissan Murano. In 2017, the Murano was named “2017 Best 2-Row SUV for the Money.” It was also named by J.D. Power as the top vehicle in the mid-size SUV category. But with Nissan, awards are not the goal, or a stoplight for improvement; instead, constant innovation is the goal.
Technology to Stay Connected
The 2018 Nissan Murano features technological improvements to help keep drivers connected, without being distracted. This includes AppleCarPlay and Android Auto, NissanConnect with Navigation, and SiriusXM (with subscription). This is housed in a 8-inch color display with touch screen control.
On the inside, different trim levels offer different levels of luxury. Choose between a power liftgate (SL & Platinum), a Dual Panel moonroof (Platinum), heated rear seats and steering wheel (SL), and more! In addition, the SL Midnight Edition package, a popular package from 2017, carries over in many models and offers new content for the 2018 Nissan Murano.
Features to Keep You Safe
Finally, the best enhancements are always the ones that keep you and your passengers safe, and the Murano lacks none of them. Standard on all grades is Automatic Emergency Braking and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning. Added to the SV grade are Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Intelligent Cruise control. In the SV Premier package, added to the rear-camera is the Intelligent Around View, which gives you full scope of what is behind, in front, and all around your vehicle as you reverse (see below).

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!
First-time buyer? Here’s why the 2018 Nissan Versa is worth a look.
The 2018 Nissan Versa, no matter what model or edition you choose, stays priced well under $20,000. But it won’t feel that way, with options ranging from chrome details to a leather-wrapped steering wheel to a rear view monitor. If you choose to forego additional options and packages, the base price will continue to drop. That is primarily why this is a great first car! No matter which options or trims you choose, the Versa will remain an affordable value. Here at Newton Nissan South, we have many different available options for you!
Standard on the Versa is a spacious interior–with 90.2 cubic feet of space, including several inches more legroom in the rear than in other comparable sedans. The trunk volume itself measures almost 15 cubic feet. Couple this with the ability to lay down the back seats in a 60/40 split, and the space increases, allowing for more cargo room. The Versa proves that a smaller sedan does not have to equal small space!
The Versa might seem simple by today’s common standards of luxury and intelligent features. However, it has all the essential features for staying connected: AM/FM radio, USB and auxiliary ports for music and charging, and hands-free Bluetooth connection. It also keeps standard essential safety features: airbags, anti-lock breaks, and tire pressure monitoring. Even more features–including a 5-in. LED display scene with rear-view camera–are available on the affordable SV Special Edition upgrade (pictured above). Add this to the already trustworthy Nissan brand, as well as the service available here at Newton Nissan South, and we’ve got you covered in a car you can feel good about purchasing!
Come see us today, and test drive the 2018 Nissan Versa for yourself!
Last month, we took a closer look at the 2017 Altima, and saw how it stacked up against a strong competitor: the 2017 Toyota Camry. The upgrades made on the 2017 model proved that upgrades are becoming standard for Nissan’s already impressive and durable lineup. With the 2018 Nissan Altima, the bar for what is becoming standard just got set higher.
A New Standard
With the 2018 model year, Nissan set a new standard with many of its models, including the Rogue, Murano, and Altima. On a million of these models, the revolutionary Automatic Emergency Breaking (AEB) technology was placed as a standard feature–not for special editions only, but on base models, with no excess charges. This is double the amount of Nissan vehicles with AEB from 2017.
What is AEB?
AEB is a new technology that helps a driver stay alert to possible collisions with vehicles ahead. It offers both visual and auditory alerts as it tracks the space in between your car and the car ahead. If the driver fails to respond to these warnings–i.e., not slowing down–the car will automatically apply the breaks. This will either help you to avoid rear-ending someone altogether, or it will at the very least reduce the speed at which the collision occurs.
An Intelligent Interior
On the inside, the 2018 Nissan Altima complements its exterior. It features a standard Advanced Drive Assist display and a 5-inch color audio display. Its primary goal is to help the driver stay focused on the road while staying informed of incoming messages. The driver can respond with preset or custom messages through the smartphone connection via the USB port below the controls.
The 2018 Nissan Altima features new standards, alongside optional upgrades, and is available at Newton Nissan South! Come see us today to check it out!
