No one likes a cluttered work environment. It can make it hard to find what you need and can make you work less efficiently. That is why Nissan is cutting back on the clutter with the new Nissan Altima interior. This clean look is aimed at giving drivers a more serene environment.
“There’s been a conscious decluttering and grouping – consciously reducing buttons but then also keeping (the ones that remain) away from each other,” Alfonso Albaisa, Nissan’s senior vice president-global design, told WardsAuto in a recent interview.
The next-generation Altima will make its debut for the 2019 model year. It will feature a floating-style infotainment screen on the upper dash as opposed to a smaller screen found in the center stack in current models.
It will still utilize a few hard buttons for functions like audio settings, the camera, day/night control, climate controls, and others. In fact, the buttons will actually be larger than before. Albaisa said this change was made after input from drivers who found small knobs frustrating.
Separating the top screen from the lower climate controls is a sleek, faux-wood and satin-silver trim that gives the cabin an upscale, sophisticated feel. We will learn even more about this new model as it gets closer to its on-sale date later this year, so stay tuned to Haddad Nissan for all the relevant information!
2018 Nissan X-Trail
If you have been outside of the United States, you may have noticed many car manufacturers offer different models than they do here. Often, these models are similar, but have different names. That is the case with the Nissan X-Trail. So what is the Nissan X-Trail?
The X-Trail is the global version of the American Rogue and is the world’s best-selling SUV. Just like the Rogue, it is designed as a family-friendly vehicle that can take you on great adventures. The second-row features EZ Flex™ second-row seats that slide and recline to allow for flexible passenger and cargo space.
Also similar to the American Rogue, the X-Trail offers a suite of Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies. These features work together to protect the X-Trail from all sides so you can feel more confident as you drive. The Around-View® Monitor is particularly useful when navigating tight parking spaces.
The X-Trail also offers numerous connectivity features. Bluetooth® comes standard along with a 7-inch touchscreen display. With satellite navigation, the X-Trail will always keep you on the right path. The Advanced Drive-Assist™ Display puts important information right in from of the driver to minimize time spent looking away from the road.
While the X-Trail may not be available here in the United States, you can experience many of the same features and styling with the Nissan Rogue. Test drive it today at Haddad Nissan!
