Nissan Altima Recognized As “most Affordable Midsize Sedan” For 2014
Total Articles: 4
Cars.com has announced their list of “Most Affordable Midsize Sedans” and the 2014 Nissan Altima leads the pack. There were several factors used to determine this list including purchase price and overall estimated fuel consumption over five years. There also had to be some standard features that consumers have come to expect on family sedans including an automatic transmission, cruise control, a USB connection, Bluetooth technology, a backup camera, and power windows and driver’s seat. With a price below $24,000 and an average of 38 mpg on the highway the Altima easily beat out the competition.
The writers at TorqueNews.com agree with the findings, citing such additional features of the 2014 Altima as the Zero Gravity Seating and the Xtronic continuous variable transmission (CVT) providing a luxurious feel without the luxury price tag. The folks at Kelly Blue Book, state that while the 2014 Nissan Altima is "...larger, quieter, and more comfortable...it is one of the most fun-to-drive midsize sedans" on the market. That means that in addition to being a great family sedan the Altima also appeals to the driver's sporty personality. Kbb.com also has the 2014 Nissan Altima on their list of “12 Best Family Cars of 2014”, one of only 2 midsize sedans to make the list, further validating the vehicle's position in the market.
Additional features of the new generation Altima include an Active Understeer Control system that allows for better handling in turns than its competitors. There is also an Easy Fill Tire Alert that signals with a flash of the lights and sound of the horn when the correct pressure is achieved. Optional safety packages include a blind spot warning system and lane departure warning.
The Altima is Nissan's best-selling vehicle and is closing the gap with the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord on becoming the best-selling midsize sedan in the country. It is also one of the few remaining in its class to offer a V6 as an option. The V6 provides extra power while still maintaining good fuel economy at 31 mpg highway. Most car enthusiasts agree however that the 4 cylinder provides plenty of "get up and go", also delivering an estimated 38 mpg highway that provides the boost needed to make the 2014 Nissan Altima the most affordable.
For the family seeking a great midsize sedan with both outstanding fuel economy and a very good safety rating the 2014 Altima is worthy of consideration. While the experts can give their opinions based on tests, ultimately it comes down to driving one for yourself to see what the hype is all about.
