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.

NEW Nissan Teana - World Premiere
The new Teana has the comfort and luxury for which its forerunners earned
acclaim over the years and adds performance inspired by the DNA of the
Nissan Altima. The sedan offers a refreshing and dynamic -- yet comfortable
-- driving experience. Powered by the new QR25DE engine, which is matched
with the next-generation Xtronic CVT® (Continuous Variable Transmission),
the new Teana delivers both responsive acceleration and excellent fuel
economy. A newly-designed rear multi-link suspension system endows Teana
with impressive maneuverability.
Teana was crafted using a "Suggestive Aura" approach that features a fresh
and prominent design with a provocative and seductive aura. Designers were
able to maximize the car's passenger space without compromising the
interior's sporty layout thanks to the unique lines extending from the
instrument panel to the door trim line.
The new Teana provides a confidence-inspiring driving feel through several
technical innovations and signature safety features. For example,
next-generation Safety Shield technologies are enabled through an enhanced,
redesigned rear view monitor camera. Additionally, passenger comfort is
augmented by zero gravity-inspired seats with an articulated shape that
supports a relaxed "neutral posture" found in a weightless environment,
thereby minimizing fatigue over long periods behind the wheel.
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.
