All of the following trim levels apply to the 2021 model year with the exception of the Leaf, 370Z, Murano, Pathfinder, Rogue Sport, Frontier and NV200.

Nissan SV Trim Level

Putting the "V" in SV, Nissan's SV trim level delivers plenty of value and tends to be the brand's volume-selling model for applicable vehicles.

If you're looking to check some option boxes, the SV trim level also offers plenty of upscale and high-tech features not offered on the base S including a heated leather steering wheel, heated front seats, power liftgate and a panoramic sunroof on the Rogue SV Premium Package.

Nissan SR Trim Level

Nissan tends to offer the sportiest vehicles in the segments in which it competes, and the available SR trim level delivers as much sportiness that you can expect from a non-sports car.

With this SR trim level, the mild-mannered Sentra is transformed into a sporty-looking compact sedan thanks to dark chrome exterior accents, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights and a sport cloth interior with orange stitched accents.

These are the Nissan models which are offered in the sporty SR trim level: Altima, Maxima, Sentra, Versa and Kicks.

Discovering Nissan Trim Packages

What are trim level options?

A trim level is how a manufacturer identifies a vehicle's level of equipment and special features, including luxe interiors and premium sound systems. The trim level you choose can determine how much you spend, and the more features you add, the higher your sticker price can get.

How can I determine which Nissan trim package is right for me?

The best way to choose a trim package is to visit your local AutoNation Nissan dealership and take a few Nissan vehicles for a spin. When you can't get to the dealership, our digital showroom offers test drive reviews of popular Nissan models and a variety of trim packages. You can check out some popular posts here:
