About the 2013 Altima Sedan
The Nissan Altima has come a long way in the 20 years since it was first introduced. Now, with the arrival in summer 2012 of the all-new fifth generation design, Nissan promises to shake up the mid-size sedan segment again with the most engaging, purposeful and energetic vehicle in its class.
Among the 2013 Altima's many attributes are a targeted best-in-segment* fuel economy of 38 mpg highway (2.5-litre engine), new premium exterior styling with a strong presence and excellent aerodynamics, an upscale interior with premium materials, and an outstanding balance of ride comfort, stability and a fun-to-drive demeanor with projected best-level acceleration.
Building on Nissan's "Innovation for All" philosophy, the new Altima also offers standard NissanConnectSM integrated smartphone connectivity with standard Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone System, Streaming Audio via Bluetooth®, and available Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, real-time POIs Powered by Google®, Google® Send-to-car, Easy Fill Tire Alert, and next-generation Safety Shield Technologies, including Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Moving Object Detection (MOD) systems.
Dynamic performance is provided by a choice of a redesigned 182-horsepower (est.) 2.5-litre DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine or a proven 270-horsepower (est.) 3.5-litre V6, with both engines matched with standard Xtronic CVT®. Altima's next-generation CVT reflects Nissan's more than 20 years of engineering and development leadership with its smooth, fuel-efficient design. Altima's redesigned 4-wheel independent suspension features segment-first Active Understeer Control for refined feel and responsive handling.
The premium interior design looks and feels a class above, with new NASA-inspired "zero-gravity" front seats, available leather appointments, and a new standard Advanced Drive-Assist™ Display in the center of the instrument cluster that integrates key information - including available navigation, text messaging notification and audio data - right in front of the driver.
The 2013 Nissan Altima is offered in six well-equipped models: Altima 2.5, 2.5 S, 2.5 SV, 2.5 SL, 3.5 SV and 3.5 SL. The new Altima is assembled in the United States.
