The "family sedan" may not be very exciting, but without midsized sales
auto makers would be in a pickle. Ponder this: the five best-selling
midsized sedans in America accounted for 1.3 million of the 12.8 million
vehicles sold in 2011. With numbers like that, it's important to get your
mass-market people mover right. This means competitive fuel economy, a low
base price and swipe as much tech from your luxury brand as possible.
Either that or just wear a Nissan badge on the front. Say what? The last
generation Altima was the second best-selling car despite being long in the
tooth and filled with some questionable plastics. This Altima has a tougher
task however, it needs to compete with Honda's new Accord and Ford's sexy
Fusion which is selling like hot cakes. Can Nissan's traditional value
proposition make up the difference? Or does the Altima have something else
up its sleeve?
A design that doesn't alienate the customer you expect to return and buy
their second or third car is critical. Just ask Ford how that bubble-Taurus
redesign went in 1996. Still, midsize sedan shoppers demand some style so
Nissan's design team jammed a bit of Maxima, a pinch of Infiniti M and a
"whole-lotta" Versa into a sausage press and cut the Altima off at 191.5
inches. This makes the new Altima longer than a Camry, a hair longer than a
Maxima and essentially the same size as the Accord and Fusion. Nobody will
confuse the Altima with an Aston Martin, nor will they think their neighbor
is driving a budget Bentley. Instead the slab-sided Altima delivers clean
lines and elegant good looks. Think of it as the Midwestern farm girl to
the Fusion's Los Angeles call girl.
Since our tester was the top-of-the-line SL, the cockpit featured a heated
tilt/telescopic steering wheel, an 8-way power driver's seat and manually
adjustable lumbar support. Shoppers that chose the 3.5L V6 will be treated
to a pair of the best looking and best feeling magnesium paddle shifters
this side of a BMW M6. Seriously. There's just one problem: paddle shifters
on a car with a CVT make as much sense as a parking brake on a french
poodle. (Yet for some reason I found myself caressing their magnesium
goodness non-stop when I was behind the wheel.) Like the most entries in
this segment, the front passenger seat remains manually adjustable
regardless of trim level and upholstery. Thanks to Nissan's "Zero Gravity"
seat design, the front seats proved comfortable and didn't' aggravate my
temperamental knee during a 2 hour road trip. Since manufacturers "march to
their own drummer" when measuring legroom, take your family to the dealer
and jam them all in the car before making a purchase.
The crash diet and CVT pay dividends at the pump. The Altima 2.5 manages
27/38/31 MPG (City/Highway/Combined) and does so without direct injection,
start/stop, batteries or aero packages. What about that V6? Nissan's focus
on weight has made the Altima 3.5 lighter than the Accord V6 and Fusion 2.0
EcoBoost by over 200lbs. In our 3.5
SL I averaged an impressive 27.6MPG over a week of mixed driving. This is
notably above the 25MPG combined EPA score despite my commute and the
2,200ft mountain pass I cross twice a day. You can thank the light curb
weight and CVT for that. The Accord V6 matches the Altima's combined EPA
number and the Fusion trumps it by one MPG on paper. In the real world, the
Altima beat both by 4MPG.
When the road curves, a light chassis will only get you so far, thankfully
Nissan tuned the Altima's suspension to be compliant but surprisingly
agile. Adding to the fun-factor, all V6 models are shod with 235/45R18
rubber, notably wider than the V6 Camry's standard 215 or optional 225
tires. The suspension, curb weight and tires combine to give the Altima a
slightly higher road holding score than the Fusion 2.0 EcoBoost we got our hands on, but numbers aren't
everything. The Fusion's steering may be numb, but it manages more feeling
than the Altima and even I have to admit the CVT sucks the fun out of
aggressive driving. If that matters to you, drive past the Nissan dealer
and pick up a Fusion 2.0T with or without AWD.
Some may call this a cop-out, but in my book the Accord, Fusion and Altima
tie for first place in my mind. Here's why: each of this trio plays to a
different audience. The Fusion is gorgeous, more dynamic than the Altima
but has stumbled with the 1.6L EcoBoost quality issues. The Accord is a
traditional choice with a solid reputation and greater visibility thanks to
an enormous greenhouse. Meanwhile the new Altima is a stylish elegant sedan
with a powerful and seriously efficient V6. If I were dropping my own money
on a sedan in this category I would have a hard time choosing between the
Altima 3.5 SL and a Fusion 2.0 EcoBoost.
2010 Nissan Altima 3.5SR Sedan Start Up, Exterior/ Interior Tour

In this tour I feature the 2010 Nissan Altima 3.5SR Sedan in "Tuscan Sun"
with a Blonde (Tan) interior. The Altima has been one of Nissan's most
popular cars on the market today. The Altima competes in a vast catagory of
entry level mid-size cars with models like the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry,
Ford Fusion, and lately, the 2011 Hyundai Sonata. Throughout the years,
it's undergone some redesigns, some of which became quite radical in some
aspects. This latest design uses essentially the same format as the
previous 2009 model, but with minor changes such as a slightly reshaped
grill, headlights and new trim levels such as the SR, shown here. The
interior is roomy with plenty of space for 4 or 5 people. The leather seats
in this particular Altima SR are plush, but not too soft, and not too firm
either. All the buttons are within reach and easy to access for things like
the radio, windows, door locks, and sunroof. For power, the standard Altima
and Altima Coupe feature a choice of 2 engines. The first of which is a
2.5L I4 (S, SE, and SR trims are available), and a 3.5L VQ35DE V6 that
knocks out 270 hp and 258 lb/ft. of torque (also available in S, SE, and SR
trims). Before 2010, you had a choice of a 6 speed Xitronic CVT
(Continuously Variable Transmission) or a traditional 6 speed manual
transmission as an option. For 2010, however, Nissan canceled the option of
having the manual, so now the CVT is the only transmission available in
both the sedan and coupe. All in all, the 2010 and 2011 Nissan Altima and
Altima Coupe are well-designed pieces of engineering that should be as
popular as they are now for years to come.

2013 Nissan Altima 2.5SL Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, & Test Drive
As the best-selling and most important model in Nissan's lineup, the
all-new fifth generation Altima sedan continues to move up the mid-size
family sedan ladder with improved fuel-efficiency, refinement, technology,
and space. It's a top-pick in a segment crowded with excellent offerings,
only a lack of a manual transmission and somewhat deja-vu styling may have
other buyers looking elsewhere.
