EDMUNDS.COM VOTES THE NISSAN ALTIMA ONE OF THE "17 BEST CARS YOU CAN BUY!" - Edging out the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord to be named Best Midsize Sedan!
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Earlier this week, the 2013 Nissan Altima was selected the Best Midsize Sedan in Edmunds.com's "17 Best Cars You Can Buy" list. The list, a new Edmunds.com feature this year, was created to select vehicles that are simply "the best, period" in each class.
Edmunds.com editors selected the 2013 Altima for its outstanding fuel economy (39.7 mpg in Edmunds' 116-mile test loop), a powertrain blending "speed and efficiency," easy-to-use technology and an overall "balance between refinement and engagement." With an already-impressive list of accolades - including its recent selection as the Most Ideal Mid-Size Car in Auto Pacific' 2013 Ideal Vehicle Awards - the awards keep coming for the 2013 Altima.
"With the redesign of the 2013 Altima, we set out to be the best mid-size sedan in the marketplace," said Fred Diaz, divisional vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing, Service & Parts, Nissan North America. "The combination of 38 mpg fuel economy, sleek styling and abundant technology makes the new and improved Altima the best overall package in the segment, and we're thrilled for the third-party validation from Edmunds.com."
The Nissan Altima continues to be one of the top selling mid-size sedans in the United States. Among the 2013 Altima's many attributes are tremendous standard fuel economy of 38 mpg highway* (2.5-liter engine model only), new premium exterior styling with a strong presence and excellent aerodynamics, an upscale interior with premium materials and an outstanding balance of ride comfort, stability and a fun-to-drive demeanor.
The fifth-generation Altima also offers standard Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone System and Streaming Audio via Bluetooth®. Also available for model year 2014 are NissanConnectSM and NissanConnectSM Navigation with a suite of Bluetooth® phone connectivity features including hands-free text message integration (SiriusXM™ subscription required, sold separately); along with Easy Fill Tire Alert and next-generation Safety Shield Technologies, including Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Moving Object Detection (MOD) systems.
Dynamic performance is provided by a choice of a redesigned 182-horsepower 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine or a proven 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V6, with both engines mated to a standard Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission). The premium interior design looks and feels a class above, with new NASA-inspired "zero-gravity" front seats, available leather appointments and a new standard Advanced Drive-Assist™ Display in the center of the instrument cluster that integrates key information - including available navigation, text messaging notification and audio data - right in front of the driver.
* 2013 EPA fuel estimate for Altima 2.5S 38 MPG hwy. Actual mileage may vary.
**Cal emissions (PZEV) equipment causes nominal reductions in horsepower. PZEV vehicles are available in California and some northeastern states.

Nissan Altima is “The New Champ”

Move over Honda Accord - Edmunds.com declares the Nissan Altima is "The New Champ"!


Fresh on the heels of winning AAA's "Top Commuter Vehicle"  in the sedan category, the Nissan Altima left the Honda Accord and Mazda 6 in the dust in a recent Edmunds.com 3-car road test competition.

According to Edmunds.com: ... the [Honda] Accord just couldn't quite keep pace with the Altima. [ Accord's] ride comfort, storage options, seat comfort and cargo flexibility are all a step behind the Nissan's. . . .[t]he 2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV...drives well, has comfortable seats and remains quiet on the highway. And even though it was the least expensive car here, it rarely felt like it. The mileage figures only add to the Nissan's appeal. Delivering almost 5 mpg more than the Accord and Mazda 6 on our test loop was no small feat.Then it followed it up by surpassing the EPA's combined mileage rating in city and highway driving. That's a rare feat in any type of car. Sure, you could find a hybrid sedan that's more efficient, but none of them put together the complete package as well as the Nissan Altima.
