2013 Nissan Altima What's new for 2013? 
2013 Nissan Altima

Nearly everything but the engines is either all or substantially new, beginning with the Altima's "class-above" looks, inside and out, and extending to a raft of new features, some class-exclusive. The CVT automatic transmission, thoroughly revamped for pleaseability and efficiency, accounts for much of its class-leading fuel economy.

2007 Nissan Altima What's new for 2007? 
2007 Nissan Altima

There has been some conjecture that continuously variable transmissions (CVTs), such as those used in some Nissan vehicles, can deliver fuel savings comparable to hybrids, and at much less cost. However, that contention, valid or not, has met with lukewarm response from environmental groups and new-car buyers looking for fuel savings, air quality benefits and the appeal of owning a hybrid.

About Nissan Altima

The 2010 Nissan Altima Hybrid provides yet another alternative in a growing list of midsize hybrid sedans including the Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion hybrids. But Nissan is hedging its bets. Not only does the Altima Hybrid trail the introduction of the gasoline-electric pioneers – Honda Insight and Toyota Prius – by several years, Nissan is also making it available only in those states that have adopted the more stringent emissions standards pioneered by California. So unless you live in a handful of states that have adopted the same guidelines, the Altima Hybrid is maddeningly out of the average consumer's reach. The Altima employs technology developed by Toyota – the solidly-proven Hybrid Synergy Drive, which is used under license by Nissan.

"I have owned this car since June 2013. It has been very reliable. The seats are comfortable, the Bose system and the navigation is great, it looks beautiful inside and out. Good gas mileage. However, the noise and vibrations from the engine is unacceptable! Noisy upon slow acceleration and a vibration is felt in the steering column and the seat cushion. Too bad, this would have been the perfect car! Had 2 other Nissans and I loved them. Can't wait till this lease is over!"

"I am 64 years old and have owned just about all types of cars and several trucks . I do my own work normally and love a quality product . I have owned Hondas , Toyotas , and Nissans plus the American cars . I notice when large improvements have been made over a particular model compared to previous years . This new 2013 Altima is by far the most improved Car over previous models I have ever seen . Virtually everything has been improved . The paint job is way better , the body style , the quietness , the comfortable seats , the performance , the gas mileage , the interior , the electronics , the transmission , . The list is a mile long . Naturally you may prefer one type car over the other . Nothing wrong with other types . The market is flooding with quality machines . But this car is drastically improved , it is the quality of Lexus , or something much more expensive . Plus if you get it on sale and low interest rates you simply can not believe the deal . it is like I am driving a 40,000 car I only paid 25 K for . The 3.5 SV has the cloth seats which I absolutely love , I get about 32 road and about 25 average around town . It blows the American cars out the window for the price ."
