Nissan took all of the things that its dedicated fans love about the Altima—including sporty handling, classy interior, and a top-notch safety record—and improved each of these characteristics even more. As a result, our Dulles Nissan dealers would like to put a spotlight on the 2013 Nissan Altima. Keep reading to learn the facts about some of the most noticeably characteristics of the totally re-designed Nissan Altima.
The standard engine on the all-new Nissan Altima is a four-cylinder that pushes out 182 horsepower. Plus, the Altima earns 27 mpg in the city and best-in-class 38 miles per gallon on the highway. To increase performance even more, get the optional 270-horsepoer V6, which is rated at 22/31 mpg city/highway.
A major reason why the completely redesigned Nissan Altima is able to boast better acceleration and fuel efficiency than its competitors is its continuously variable transmission (CVT). CVTs use a gearless configuration to constantly use the most efficient gear ratios given the engine’s current power needs.
Nissans are widely respected for their sporty handling, and the all-new Nissan Altima is no exception. Taking it out on a curvy road outside of Chantilly will leave you in disbelief that you’re behind the wheel of a family sedan. Body roll is virtually non-existent, and the car's reflexes make a big difference during parking and cornering maneuvers. If you’re after a comfortable driving experience, the Nissan Altima will not disappoint. Its suspension may be sporty, but it’s not overly sensitive.
Designed with help from NASA, the Nissan Altima’s seats are shaped and built in order to offer tension-relieving comfort that makes a big difference on long trips. High-quality materials, an attractive dashboard design, and a clear style improvement separate the current Nissan Altima’s interior from those before it.
