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).
Like what you see on the 2018 Nissan Murano?
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!
Two great cars. Two reputable manufacturers. How do you decide?
Here at Newton Nissan, we don’t want you to only take our word for it when it comes to buying a car. We want you to make an informed decision. So we’ve put two of the top sedans available on the market head-to-head: Nissan’s 2017 Altima Sedan vs Toyota’s 2017 Camry to help you decide.
2017 Toyota Camry
Toyota’s Camry this year offers gasoline-powered models in a 4-cylinder or V6 engine, as well as a hybrid model. The gasoline models feature a 6-speed automatic transmission, but the hybrid model offers Toyota’s Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
On the interior, the XLE and XSE models newly feature the Entune™ Audio Plus system with navigation. Other select models are equipped with a Qi Wireless Smartphone Charging system for certain phones.
2017 Nissan Altima Sedan
Nissan’s version of Toyota’s CVT, Xtronic CVT® comes standard on the 2017 Altima Sedan, giving every model smooth acceleration and quiet performance. It also has a better fuel efficiency than the Camry, with a larger fuel tank and an average of 30 mpg with a 4-cylinder engine; Camry’s estimates for the Camry’s 4-cylinder is 27 mpg. Also standard on the 2017 Altima is Push Button Ignition.
In the driver’s seat, the Altima has the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display, providing easy recognition of vehicle information and warnings. For added comfort, a heating steering wheel is available on select models. This feature is not offered on any of the Camry models.
A Standard Upgrade
The 2017 Nissan Altima considers standard what competitors count as luxury upgrades. It is the clear choice for someone looking at the 2017 Nissan Altima versus 2017 Toyota Camry this year, because of these standard luxuries that Nissan offers on the Altima.
Congrats to the Dye family on their new 2016 Nissan Rogue!
