The newest Altima is not one to be overlooked. Do yourself a favor and check out how Nissan has improved their best seller for 2013.
Nissan Altima Sedan Trims and Feature Highlights
The Altima is a midsize sedan (also available as a Coupe) that offers a fresh look for 2013 after a redesign. Starting at $21,500 and topping out around $35,000, the new Altima offers varying degrees of affordable economy, comfort, and performance where you need it, in addition to a bit of fresh style inside & out. New traits include a slimmer appearance thanks in part to aluminum materials, and plenty of chrome- Nissan seems keen on that- to keep up with a greatly improved upscale theme inside.
Interior style and comfort are optimized, but there’s plenty of tech to play with as well. Bluetooth and a multi-information display come standard, and things like Nissan Connect infotainment, blind spot warning, and lane departure alert systems are available.
Things remain stellar under the hood, with a pair of fuel efficient and capable 4 & 6 cylinder engine choices at your service. Nissan also tweaked Altima’s suspension and steering to provide a more 370Z-like feel.

Nissan Altima Sedan Performance
Shoppers can choose between two available engine choices for 2013. Altima 2.5 trims are affixed with a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder worth 182 horsepower and 180 lb.-ft. of torque, in addition to front-wheel drive and a continuously variable (CVT) transmission that’s been designed with smoothness and efficiency in mind.
Sport seekers will likely want to hone in on the Altima 3.5 options. All 3.5 models are handed additional muscle courtesy of a 3.5 liter V6 that boasts 270 horsepower and 251 lb.-ft. The V6 gets a CVT transmission plus paddle shifters for manual shift control which, partnered with the engine’s prowess, provides for a gratifying driving experience.
Nissan Altima Sedan Fuel Economy
Attention to engine efficiency pays off for 2013 Altima Sedan. EPA estimates give Altima 2.5 trims 27/38/31 (city/highway/combined) MPG; 3.5 models also make the grade at 22/31/25.
Nissan Altima Sedan Interior Highlights
A redesign means fresh style inside the 2013 Altima, and this time they’re all about luxury…or as luxury as an affordable midsize can get. Nissan is on point with soft touch materials, a quieter ride, and zero-gravity seats that use NASA technology to make it feel like you’re floating in space. Dash-side, Altima’s 4 inch LCD Drive-Assist display is positioned in front of the driver to give pertinent information without the distraction of wandering-eyes driving. Speaking of tech, the fortunately named Nissan Connect infotainment screen provides everything else you need on your journeys both long and short.
If relegated to the back, you’ll get a livable 36.1 inches of legroom. Trunk space hovers around the midsize average, offering 15.4 cubic feet to play with.
Nissan Altima Sedan Safety
2013 averages include 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, stability & traction control, as well as an airbag system that includes front-side impact and full length side curtain bags. Additionally, Altima trims excluding base 2.5 and S get a rearview camera that can detect movement. Blind spot and lane departure warning systems are available as options for SL Altima models.
Crash test numbers aren’t yet complete for the 2013 Altima Sedan.
Nissan Altima Sedan Summary
The 2013 redesign should direct a few more eyeballs on to Altima’s sports-orientated midsize magnificence. You come for the drivability, but stay for the freshness and actual family usability. Altima gets it done in typical Nissan style, though stiff in-class competition necessitated a great outing this year regardless.
