Next-generation XTRONIC CVT┬«
Nissan first adopted the Continuously Variable Transmission in 1992, then
refreshed and modernized it a decade later, becoming one of the world's
first automotive manufacturers to include the CVT on passenger cars. Now,
10 years on again, they've taken it to another level.
The 2013 Nissan Altima will be the first Nissan with the next-generation
XTRONIC CVT. The dramatically improved technology achieves a significant
15% increase in fuel efficiency, accelerates faster, runs quieter and offers an even more
seamless shifting experience.
How does it do this? By giving it the world's highest transmission ratio
and also reducing the transmission's weight, length, friction, and even the
amount of transmission fluid needed.
The transmission ratio is 7.3:1, which is a broader ratio than you'll find
in an average automatic, and far superior to the 6.0:1 you'd find in a
similar model vehicle.
Intelligent CVT Logic ensures that the transmission is always in the right
gear, which eliminates any wasteful gear hunting. The expanded gear ratio
also reduces engine revolutions drastically, allowing the Altima to cruise
at 60 miles per hour at fewer than 1500 RPMs. The benefits of lower RPMs
are obvious -- better fuel efficiency and a noticeably quieter ride.
So, what does all this mean for the driver? Efficiency: up to 15% increase
in fuel efficiency. Performance: it delivers absolutely seamless
performance and alleviates many of the concerns that drivers held about
earlier CVT's. Quiet: the higher-efficiency and 40% reduction in friction
allows the car to perform at higher speeds at very low RPMs, practically
eliminating all noise from the transmission.

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.
