2013 Nissan Pathfinder Concept Previews Next-Gen SUV
Nissan previewed the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show
(NAIAS). The new vehicle moves from a truck (body on frame) platform to a
unibody platform - Nissan's D-Platform, which is the basis of the Altima
and Maxima sedans, and Murano crossover vehicle.
This move (though questioned by my die hard Pathfinder fans) makes the
up-coming Pathfinder more marketable to families that desire seven-seater
capabilities, while offering car-like refinement and convenience.
The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is set to be launched in the fall of 2012.

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.
2015 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/nissan/altima/2015/?id=32972 The Altima’s fifth
generation design is officially 3 years old and this car competes in one of
the largest segments in the industry: the mid-size sedan segment. Nissan
holds its own by providing everything that a buyer is looking for at this
level: spacious interior, large trunk, fuel economy, and lots of modern
technology. Basically it’s everything you need in a modern passenger car.
The 2015 Nissan Altima 2.5 SV has a base price of $24,720.
Overall the Altima is a sleek car with some interesting style points but at
the end of the day it still looks similar to other cars in this category.
The engine is a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder that makes 182 horsepower and the CVT
combines to get 27 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway. On the inside
the Altima may be at the top of the list when it comes to comfort.
If you are the type of person who just wants something cheap, roomy, and
reliable to go back-and-forth to work then the Altima is the perfect car.
As a bonus the Altima has excellent crash scores. Video by Christian

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.
2013 Nissan Altima Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/nissan/altima/2013/?id=32972 Nissan calls the 2013
Altima the most innovative Altima ever as this model represents the 5th
generation. Practically every facet of the car has been upgraded for the
better from the more stylish exterior, to the smooth design and finish of
the interior; the Altima looks to distance itself from the pack in a very
competitive sedan segment. The 2013 Nissan Altima comes in 7 different trim
levels with the base 2.5 sedan costing $21,500. The fully loaded 3.5 SL
tops out at $30,080.
On the outside the first thing you notice about the 2013 Nissan Altima is
the body lines which look more like Nissan's luxury line Infiniti. There
are chrome accents everywhere and the rear LED taillights are hard to miss.
The body and chassis are lighter thanks in part to the use of aluminum. The
overall drag coefficient of the 2013 Nissan Altima was also reduced which
in turn helps lower fuel consumption. The interior of the 2013 Nissan
Altima is quite spacious for a mid size sedan. The materials used are very
high quality and the interior features are nicely laid out. Again the
Altima seems to take a que from the Infiniti design line.
There are 2 different engines options. The first is a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder
engine that makes 182 horsepower and 180 lb-ft. of
torque. The Altima might seem a bit low in the power department but with
the Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission, Nissan thinks the 2013
Altima will net 38 MPG on the highway making it one of the most fuel
efficient sedans on the road. The other engine choice is a 3.5 liter V-6
that produces 270 horsepower and 258 lb-ft. of
Driving dynamics are much improved as the rear suspension now consists of a
multilink setup based on the 370Z sports car. The ZF Sachs shock absorbers
are more commonly found on high end luxury cars from Europe. The 2013
Nissan Altima has a trick Active Understeer Control System which keeps the
driver in control. Understeer is eliminated by the computer as brake
pressure is applied to the inside wheel automatically.
The 2013 Nissan Altima comes loaded with a bunch of standard features. The
seats have been redesigned and test to improve posture and reduce fatigue.
There is an Advanced Display which makes it easy for the driver to get
vehicle information and navigation instructions. The Altima comes standard
with Nissan's safety shield which adds over 50 features including a Lane
Departure Warning System, Blind Spot Warning System, and Moving Object

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.
