2013 Nissan Altima: First Videos Released

It looks like the battle of the sensible, affordable Japanese midsize sedans will be really heated this year. The fifth generation Nissan Altima was unveiled yesterday at the New York Auto Show, but the car is actually based on the previous model’s platform.

The styling is good for a car that starts at $21,500 for the 2.5-liter 182 hp inline-four. It’s not going to win awards, but it’s certainly more distinct than the before. Wheel arch that are more distinct and a curvy grille-headligt combo all combine to make the car more attractive.

Standard technologies include ConnectSM which offers Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System and Streaming Audio via Bluetooth. The Altima is available with Hands-Free Messaging Assistant, Pandora integration, USB connection for iPods and satellite radio with a 5-inch display.

Nissan is very much focused on CVT technology, even fitting it to sportier cars like the turbo Juke. So it does not surprise us they added a brand new one to the Altima. Thanks to this, the 3013 2.5liter model does 37 mpg, which is 15 percent better than the 2012 model’s 32 mpg highway.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
