Nissan Altima Review Belleville
Why take a look at the fresh new 2013 Altima? Why not!
Style and grace may have been absent from the new car market for some
time but with the introduction of the 2013 Altima, Nissan is signaling that it is high time your vehicle gave you more than just transportation.
After all, life should be more than a simple meander from point A to point B. Life should be lived and, what's more, life should be lived in style. Well folks, welcome to style.
With the Altima you will notice that there is a sweep, subtle but true, that leads your eye from the Halogen headlights and the tasteful grille all the way to the LED taillights and the chrome tipped exhaust. It is a modern turn on the forward look of yesterday, a time before cookie cutter jellybean cars littered the highways.
Compared to the bland alternatives available the Altima looks just plain scrumptious.
But, the Altima, while a definite treat for the eye, is more than just last years prom queen all dolled up in a new party dress. Make no mistake; the 2013 Altima will envelop and flirt and tease and asks for attention. Yes, this girl came to dance.
Power is supplied by either a 2.5 Liter Double Overhead Cam Four or a 24 Valve 3.5 Liter V6. The former boasts 182 horsepower and the latter pushes out 270 horses along with 251 Foot Pounds of Torque. Think Tango not Waltz.
Transferring all that power to the dance floor is Nissan's Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) no gears to get in the way, just smooth as silk belts and pulleys. Cool.
Look for more detail on the interior and some of the high tech goodies the 2013 Altima boasts (standard and/or optional) in another review. For now just take in the beauty and know that underneath that pretty face is a sedan for the ages quick, comfortable and willing to please.
