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.

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 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

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.
