2014 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL Test Drive & V-6 Sedan Video Review
The Nissan Altima is not the most exciting car in the company's line-up
when you think about cars like the GTR or the 370Z. But the Nissan Altima
is a more utilitarian car that gets the job done day in and day out. Nissan
has done a good job of tying the styling together throughout the family.
The 2014 Nissan Altima does have its sporty cues with the sharp cut
headlights, aggressive spindle grille, and 17-inch alloy wheels. Gone is
the coupe model leaving behind only the 4-door sedan and its 7 different
trim levels that are priced between $21,860 $30,660.
Find out more about the 2014 Nissan Altima
The base model cars are powered by a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder. The model tested
here is the king-of-the-hill 3.5 SL which has a 3.5 liter V-6 under the
hood that makes 270 horsepower and 251 lb-ft. of
torque which is plenty for a passenger sedan. The CVT trans helps the
Altima V-6 achieve 22 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway.
Just as the outside of the 2014 Nissan Altima has grown up and matured, so
too has the interior space. This top of the line car is packed with a ton
of goodies like a Touch Screen Navigation Unit, Backup Camera, Heated
Seats, Steering Wheel mounted controls, and more. The Nissan tows the line
between sport and comfort as a passenger car.
If you are thinking about the Altima just know you are getting a far
superior car than the cheaper siblings like the Versa and Sentra. There is
an Altima out there that can fit the needs of most car shoppers.

2012 Nissan Maxima Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/nissan/maxima/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Nissan
Maxima is one of the more sporty cars that live in the mid-sized car
segment. There is definitely a lot of boring cars out there but Nissan
lives outside the box and the Maxima is a prime example. On the outside the
car features bulging fenders, sharp headlights, an aggressive hood, and
cool 18-inch rims. These design elements make for an exciting mid-sized
Under the hood the 2012 Nissan Maxima rocks the famous VQ series engine.
The V-6 displaces 3.5 liters and puts out a nice 290 horsepower and 261 lb-ft. of
torque. Fuel economy is average at 19 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the
highway. When you step up into the Maxima, Nissan rewards you with all the
bells and whistles. Driving the Maxima is akin to the driving an Infiniti
luxury car. The car is very comfortable and the navigation system is
fantastic. The controls are fantastic, the fit and finish is top notch, and
the display gauges are crystal clear.
The 2012 Nissan Maxima starts at $32,060; but this mid-sized sedan punches
well above its weight. The overall package really works and the strong VQ
engine gives you good bang for your buck. Nissan did a great job of making
the Maxima stand out from the boring mundane crowd.

2012 Subaru Legacy Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/subaru/legacy/2012/?id=32972 The midsized car
segment is packed and the 2012 Subaru Legacy is working hard to separate
itself from the rest of the bunch. The advanced symmetrical all-wheel drive
system and upgraded interior are 2 ways the Legacy has progressed. The 2012
Subaru Legacy has a base price of $19,995 while the top of the line model
goes for $28,595.
There are 3 engines offered on the Legacy. The first is a 2.5 liter
4-cylinder engine that makes 170 horsepower and 170 lb-ft. of
torque. This very base engine also gets the best fuel economy at 23 MPG in
the city and 31 MPG on the highway. The second engine is a turbocharged version of the 2.5 liter which has
265 horsepower and
258 lb-ft. of torque. The fuel economy for the turbo engine is 18 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on
the highway. The last engine choice is a 3.6 liter V-6 that produces 256 horsepower and 247
lb-ft. of torque. The V-6 engine gets 18 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the
highway. Fuel economy is a bit lower than the competition due in part to
the all wheel drive system.
The Subaru Legacy has always had a spot in the midsized car segment and the
turbocharged GT Limited model is a big
hit with enthusiasts. So if you are looking for something a bit more unique
the regular mundane choices for a midsized passenger car and you want the
added safety and handling that comes from an all wheel drive vehicle, then
the 2012 Subaru Legacy may be the right choice.

2012 Hyundai Sonata Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/sonata/2012/ Hyundai has really raised
the bar with the 2012 Hyundai Sonata sedan. When compared to some of the
other cars in the mid-sized sedan segment like the: Honda Accord, Toyota
Camry, and Nissan Altima; the Sonata brings so much more to the table. The
base price for the Sonata is $19,695 which makes it one of the best
bargains in the mid-sized segment. The 2012 Hyundai Sonata is powered by a
2.4 liter 4-cylinder the puts out 198 horsepower and 184 lb-ft. of
torque. The Sonata also gets a near class leading 24 MPG in the city and 35
MPG on the highway. Besides the power and fuel economy the Sonata comes
packed with all kinds of equipment and features. The Sonata looks and
feels quite luxurious which is why it can be considered the best mid-sized
sedan. And don't forget about the great 100k mile Hyundai warranty.

2012 Nissan Altima 2.5 S Review & Drive
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Nissan Altima 2.5 S is like Vanilla ice
cream. It is smooth, easy to drive, and a bit boring. The Altima competes

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.

2013 Ford Fusion vs Nissan Altima 0-60 MPH Mile High Matchup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Ford Fusion and the new 2013 Nissan
Altima directly compete for the same car buyer. They are both four door
mid-sized family sedans that have gotten bigger for 2013. They both get the
exact same EPA MPG but that is where the similarities end. The Fusion we
tested has a turbo-charged ecoBoost 4 cylinder engine mated to a traditional
6-speed transmission and all-wheel-drive. While the Nissan Altima gets a
bigger 6-cylinder mated to a CVT transmission. In another fun and
informative 0-60 MPH TFLcar review, we compare both cars to see not only
which one is faster but which one
it the better buy.
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.
2013 Nissan Altima vs Maxima 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Nissan Altima and the new 2013
Nissan Maxima are two family sedans cut from the same cloth. Of course the
Maxima is Nissan's top of the line sedan while the Nissan Altima slots
right below the Maxima in both price and performance...or at least so we
thought until we tested both cars in another fun and informative TFLcar
Mashup Review. There's of course no doubt that the Maxima is the more
expensive of the two Nissan sedans. It also can be had with the more
powerful V6 but what about size and performance and perhaps more
importantly which car is the better driver. Check out this video comparison
to find out which Nissan sedan is really the top dog.
