What's New for the 2018 Nissan Altima?

If you are thinking about buying a new Nissan Altima this year, you may be wondering what is new for this sedan in the 2018 model.

If this is the case for you, you may enjoy learning that the 2018 exterior body design remains unchanged. Furthermore, the 2018 model is available in six exceptional exterior colors. While the exterior of the 2018 Altima has not changed, the interior of the 2018 model does have a few updates.
