EDMUNDS.COM VOTES THE NISSAN ALTIMA ONE OF THE “17 BEST CARS YOU CAN BUY!”

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!
 
REPRINT OF THEIR Aug. 19, 2013 ARTICLE: 
 
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.

THE NEW 2014 ALTIMA

THE NEW 2014 ALTIMA MAKES THE TOYOTA CAMRY AND HONDA ACCORD GREEN WITH ENVY!


Look out San Diego, The new 2014 Nissan Altima will launch later this month! This ravishing road warrior is making the critics applaud and the competition sweat! Check why this bold new beauty is turning heads!

DESIGN





WE MADE A BIG DEAL, EVEN OF THE LITTLE THINGS
Detailed. Right down to the details.

Chrome's appeal lies in its deeply reflective qualities. Even distant objects look as sharp reflected in chrome as they would if you were looking at them directly. A fine point admittedly, but it shows you how much thought we put into even the smallest details, starting with our badge. Just wait 'til you see what we did to the rest.

PREMIUM SPACE. PREMIUM SPACIOUSNESS.
Luxury interior design.

We softened the edges, sculpted the lines and took the idea of open space inside. Then we quieted everything down. The result - a serene cabin of unexpected spaciousness and luxury, where premium materials combine to create an atmosphere of class that is simply a class above.

PERFORMANCE





GO. OR JUST GO FARTHER.
Outstanding acceleration. Incredible efficiency.

You've got choices. You can go with Nissan's legendary 3.5-liter, 270-hp V6 that treats you to sports-car style performance even while it sips fuel at an impressive 31 MPG on the highway. [*] Or you can go with the class-leading 38 MPG highway provided by the spirited 182-hp 4-cylinder.

NEXT-GENERATION XTRONIC CVT®

The Altima's CVT virtually eliminates gears by using a single metal belt that runs around a pair of variable-diameter pulleys. Once a transmission isn't limited by fixed gears, it can operate far more effectively. So whatever your right foot asks for, CVT responds with the perfect engine speed.

ALTIMA LOVES CORNERS...
Active understeer control

Altima's Active Understeer Control system sets even the sharpest turn straight. It works by braking the inside wheels for better control through corners for a more confident feel behind the wheel.

370Z CORNERS...
Redesigned rear suspension

Altima's 370Z®-inspired multilink rear suspension has been designed to deliver instant steering response and maximum tire contact for handling that'll tackle the passing lane as easily as the carpool lane.

EUROPEAN LUXURY CAR CORNERS
ZF Sachs shocks

Altima comes equipped with ZF Sachs shock absorbers. You know, like the ones found on luxury cars from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche... Yeah, those ones.

PERFORMANCE RIPPED
Lighter. Faster. Stronger.

We gave Altima class-leading highway fuel economy [*] and powerful acceleration. How did we do it? We put it on a diet. The engine, body, and chassis are all lighter, and we slimmed down the aerodynamics. The result-hit the gas and Altima will propel you from 0-60 faster than you can say "hang on".

PUREDRIVE™

Altima is one of a select group of Nissan vehicles to wear the PUREDRIVE™ badge. PUREDRIVE™ is a key part of our commitment to achieve lower levels of CO2 emissions. The technology focuses on improving fuel efficiencies and reducing CO2 emissions. And that's something we all can smile about.

STREET SMARTS
Intelligent technology

What if your car could tell you when its tires had enough air? If it warmed itself up or cooled itself down for you without you even being there? Or turned on the headlights automatically in the rain? Would you call it smart, or simply brilliant?

CLEVER, RIGHT DOWN TO YOUR COCCYX
Zero Gravity Seats

NASA research determined the posture astronauts naturally take in the weightlessness of space. Nissan Engineering used this research to develop front seats that optimize comfort and reduce fatigue. Thanks for the tip guys.

TECHNOLOGY





NEVER LOSE SIGHT OF WHAT'S IMPORTANT
Advanced Drive-Assist® Display

From optional turn-by-turn navigation, to caller ID, the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display does it for you in one central location. It's specially designed to make it easy for you to get info quickly, allowing you to focus on what matters most-driving.

CONNECTED TO MORE THAN THE ROAD

NissanConnect™ uses hands-free technology, your smartphone, and your Nissan's display screen to help you stay in touch with the outside world from inside your vehicle. It's loaded with features and a growing list of apps that let you play your music, keep tabs on your social network, and navigate any city like a local.

NOW, EVEN TRAFFIC JAMS HAVE A FAST LANE
SiriusXM Traffic

Take the road less travelled. Literally. SiriusXM Traffic gives you traffic updates, suggesting alternate routes that help you avoid delays due to roadwork, accidents, or pesky congested highways.

FRONT-ROW SEATS TO MUSIC YOU ?
iHeartRadio for Auto (Late availability)

It's got all that jazz, country, rock, urban, and pop... Access over 1,500 live stations from coast-to-coast, or create your own station based on your favorite artist. With the Discovery Tuner, customize the level of variety you want. Listen to new music, play only songs you know and love, or get a bit of both.

TALK FOR A MILE, A MINUTE, OR MORE.
Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant

Want to reply to a text message? No need to reach for your phone. The Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant keeps you connected through voice recognition technology. [*] So just talk to send a text, or use the available Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System to make a call without diverting your attention.

ALTIMA'S GOT YOUR BACK...
Safety Shield Technologies

Altima includes over 50 safety features specifically designed to take care of you. Standard air bags, six of them, are there to help protect everyone on board. [*] No one could forget the kids, so every Altima includes the LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) for easier child seat installation.

...AND READY TO LIGHT THE WAY FORWARD.
Enhanced headlights

Automatic headlights respond to light conditions outside. And if your wipers are on so are the headlights - automatically after 4 swipes. Illuminated driving courtesy of Altima.

Your exclusive pass to your Altima

The Nissan Intelligent Key lets you tap a button on the door handle or trunk to unlock them while your keys stay in your pocket or purse. And the available Remote Engine Start System [*] lets you warm up or cool down your Altima before you get in.
