When it comes to the innovations and advanced technology behind the ground-up, totally new 2013 Nissan Altima design, some things might be considered evolutionary. Take the body, the engines, transmission, suspension, steering, seats, the instrument panel, navigation system, music connection, armrest, windshield wipers, and tire pressure monitoring system. The previous generation Altima had them. This generation does too.
The 2013 Nissan Altima Sedan offers a body, that while clearly recognizable as an Altima, is lighter, more rigid and cuts a cleaner path through the wind. Features include a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylnder engine that is lighter, stronger, quicker and more fuel-efficient (combined with the new transmission design) than the previous 2.5-liter design and a next-generation Xtronic CVT® that takes Nissan's two decades of Continuously Variable Transmission leadership into a new dimension of smooth operation and fuel efficiency. Consider a new, refined rear multi-link suspension that could be equally at home on a premium European sports sedan and a hybrid power steering system that combines the feel of a traditional hydraulic box with the efficiency of modern electric control. Other features include front seats that take their inspiration from outer space technology – for out-of-segment comfort, an intuitive 3D-effect information display that's easier to watch than many 3D Hollywood blockbusters, and navigation that's never outdated and loves to tell you where to go.
