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.
