2018 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL Specs

Nissan Altima

While still equipped with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, the SL optimizes on luxury by upgrading the interior to leather-appointed seats with heated front seats and steering wheel, and a premium interior trim. The passenger seat also gains four-way power functionality. The base sound system is replaced with a nine-speaker Bose premium audio setup. External mirrors receive heating and LED turn indicators, while mood lighting is added inside the cabin along with an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Considering the SL is supposed to be the premium trim level, it is disappointing that the 2.5 SL only receives the full treatment when equipped with the Technology Package.
