About Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima has long been considered the ideal family sedan, and the 2014 edition only reinforces this popular sentiment. Through the years the Altima became known for its tight handling and being easy on the road, and this is no exception. In addition to the classic features, its newest incarnation has shown signs of maturity and increased sophistication.

Design

Nissan Altima 0-60In terms of style the Altima has always been more fashionable and less predictable than its competitors, and this holds true for the 2014 model. The current Altima is more refined, comfortable and mainstream. It’s a good choice for car owners because for one, the cabin has been dressed-up with a comprehensive infotainment system. The powertrain option has also been redesigned with more options but less complicated now, and the seats are very comfortable.

The Altima has a nice new shape, what Nissan calls “emotional styling”, and it’s clear that the company used a sophisticated manufacturing method in designing the intricate body surface. The front end has the angled, arrowed style of other Nissan cars, and the taillights and headlamps are reminiscent of the Infiniti. The side glass tapers are just as well-designed. The fenders swell out gracefully and in some ways it is reminiscent of the company’s crossovers, nicely done.

Safety features are top of the line and include standard or optional rearview cam, lane departing warning mechanisms, blind spot monitor, air bags etc. The Altima also shines in the infotainment department thanks to its audio and Bluetooth support, CD player, streaming media and more.

Interior Features

The interior has a somewhat conservative style with straight lines separating the controls between the passenger and driver. The 2014 Altima also has plenty of room for the large LCD screens and sophisticated entertainment systems, which should make this even more attractive for families.

The car can seat five people comfortably and it’s still got the 109.3 inch wheelbase that the 2012 model had. Overall the Altima is 191.5 inches long. In terms of space, the Altima hasn’t added that much, but that’s all right since previous models have always had plenty of room anyway.

The seats are of exceptional quality, and they’re clearly designed to keep you comfortable even if you have to sit for hours on end. This holds true by the way, for both front and backseats, quite a feat considering that most family sedans treat the backseats as an afterthought.

The driver front seat on the base models can be adjusted in half a dozen ways, while the front passenger seat has four adjustment levels. Heated front seats and a power driver are optional features, while there’s a 60/40 split on the rear seats. To access the trunk, just fold the rear seats. All models have optional leather seating available.

Engine and Driving Performance

All current versions of the Altima use an independent suspension, but the shocks have been upgraded so riding is smoother and there’s a more refined feel to it. Add in a cool electrohydraulic steering and you’ve got one of the best mannered family sedans out there.

Handling is superb as the Altima gives you total control on just about driving surface. Due to the way the car has been designed, it longer has the tight control feel of the classic hydraulic-only models, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing as the steering is still rock solid.

As far as power goes, the Altima has 182 HP, 2.5 liter 4-cylinder with CVT (continuously variable transmission). Just like with the previous models, the Altima is geared for high mileage with an EPA of 27 mpg for city and 38 mpg for the highway. These are very good numbers, putting it right there with the best hybrid cars., and the Altima provides more than enough muscle for driving point to point.

Nissan also did a good job keeping the noise level down even when you’re pushing the drivetrain, and for drivers looking for a bit more power, check out the Premium Altima with its 3.5-liter V-6, 258 pound-feet of torque and 270 HP.

Conclusion

It strikes a good balance between comfort and handling, making it much better than the previous editions, so it’s no surprise that sales have increased. While there are a lot of volume mid-sized sedans, the Altima is definitely at the top of the list.
