The 2013 Nissan Altima: Excellent Fuel Efficiency & High Performance

By Author: Benny Freeman

The all-new 2013, fifth generation, redesigned Nissan Altima has the most upscale features, stylish good looks, fuel economy and refinement ever seen in this popular middle class car. A sports car inspired suspension, innovative interior and exterior features, superb acceleration, a safe and fun driving experience and the best mileage in its segment makes this the car to watch out for in 2013-14.


Features


Majority of the models priced above $24,000 are equipped with high tech features such as navigation system, traction control, stability control, curtain and side airbags, satellite radio, iPod input, Bluetooth and continuously variable transmission. Engine capacities range from 4 cylinder 2.5 L engines to 3.5 L V6 engines.


It has a horsepower of 182 – much higher than either the Camry or Accord. A Nissan service Guelph centre would be better able to inform you about the optional feature package you can purchase to upgrade your model.


Available features you can add to customise your 2013 Altima include remote engine start, blind spot warning, moving object detection, lane departure warning, active understeer control (standard feature) and easy fill tyre alert (standard feature). None of these features are offered by the Sonata, Accord and Camry.


Fuel Efficiency


Fuel efficiency is an impressive 15 km/litre on city roads and 23 km/litre on the highways, making it the most fuel efficient mid-size sedan in the market today. The highway fuel consumption, as claimed by Nissan, is a 100km/five litres. Neither the Camry, nor the Accord or Sonata can match up to the 2013 Altima in this respect.


Price


The base price for the lowest variant 2.5 4 cylinder model starts at an affordable $23,698 and goes all the way up to $32,000 for the 3.5 SL version. Of course, dealer discounts and corporate rebates will bring the drive out price down by a couple of thousand dollars at least.


Pros


Solid interior quality, extremely comfortable front and rear seats, spacious cabin, user friendly electronics, a quiet and smooth ride and rewarding handling are some of the reasons that will make you fall in love with this stylishly redesigned, masculine looking sturdy vehicle. Great fuel economy, a large trunk, a well decorated cabin, excellent performance and strong acceleration are also plus points that merit attention.

Things to Consider about the Coupe and Models with Bigger Engines


The Altima coupe and the 3.5 L models of course are gas guzzlers owing to the big sized engines. The rear headroom is cramped, Nissan could have amped up the headspace in the rear seats. The four cylinder engines are extremely noisy, especially when you step on the gas pedal. But these are just minor setbacks, which won't deter any car enthusiast from purchasing this car.


Verdict


All in all, the new Nissan Altima 2013, despite minor hiccups, can give a serious competition to the Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata and Honda Accord in every department and is as solidly built and stylishly crafted as its closest rivals. Powerful, durable, hardy, reliable and spacious, this masculine horse is here to trump the competition and win over customers who want a value for money vehicle with a great resale value.
