2018 configurations Loaded SV vs loaded SL, differences?

Sat Jan 27, 2018 4:00 pm

From what I can see in the online configuration, there are three differences between:

- SV with the Tech and all weather package: $35,590
- SL with the Tech package: $36,850

    Intelligent Around View® Monitor
    Leather-appointed seats
    Bose® Energy Efficient Series premium audio system with seven speakers

Is that list correct?

The way you wrote that it isn't clear what you ask. The SV and SL both have Around View, and both have the Bose stereo when optioned. The SL is the only one with leather seats and a solar panel. As I have noted elsewhere, only the leather seats and solar panel are exclusive to the 2018 SL, AFAIK.

I haven't looked at the 2018's specs, but in years past if you wanted the fog lights and auto on/off headlights, you also had to step up to the SL. These couldn't be added to lesser spec models unless you bought the parts separately and installed them yourself.

If so, this was a change after 2013. My SV has fog lights and auto headlights.

My former leased '13 SV w/premium and QC + LED headlight packages had fog lights and auto headlights.

My current owned used '13 SV w/premium only doesn't have fog lights nor auto headlights.

Per specs tab of http://nissannews.com/en-US/nissan/usa/ ... -press-kit LED Headlights + Quick Charge Port package includes "LED headlights, auto on/off headlights, fog lights, quick charge port".

It was on one of the spec listings we've had floating around, in an odd location that I at first missed. At this point I'm certain of nothing, but I'd be amazed if the SV didn't have Around View at least with the Tech package. It was listed as standard, however. It is a deal breaker for me, but I'm not worried that it isn't available on the SV.

I beleive the solar panel has been discontinued for the 2018 model year. Too bad. It was kind of cool.

Thanks for interpreting it correctly.

I didn't see where you could option the Bose on the SV or where the Around View is listed on the SV.
Around View would be nice, I don't want the leather or hump in the trunk area for the Bose (if that still is an issue


A better way to put it: for 2018, what features are exclusively on the SL?
