Optional technology features are also enhanced for 2014, with a new Display Audio Package available on 2.5 S and 3.5 S models and a Technology Package replacing the Navigation Package on 2.5 SV and 3.5 SV models, which now includes NissanConnect smartphone integration along with enhanced navigation features and app support.
