2014 Nissan Altima Overview
Redesigned last year, the Nissan Altima midsize sedan comes with a choice of four-cylinder or V-6 power. Competitors to the five-seat, front-drive Altima include the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Ford Fusion.
New for 2014
The Altima coupe has been dropped from the lineup. Changes to the sedan mainly involve new optional features and packages. A new Technology Package that arrives later in the model year replaces the Navigation Package on the SV models and includes navigation with NissanConnect, a blind spot warning system, lane departure warning and moving object detection.
The Altima comes standard with 16-inch steel wheels with covers; 16-, 17- or 18-inch aluminum wheels available, low-rolling-resistance tires, and when filling tires with air, the horn beeps when correct pressure is reached. Additional options include automatic headlights, fog lights, LED taillights, remote start, and moonroof.
Cloth or leather upholstery wrap in interior of the Altima. Furthermore Bluetooth cellphone connectivity with streaming audio come standard as well as a 60/40-split folding backseat with armrest and customizable 4-inch color screen in gauge cluster. Available options include NissanConnect with Pandora and iPod connectivity, power-adjustable driver's seat, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, leather-wrapped steering wheel, navigation system, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bose premium stereo, and heated front seats and steering wheel.
Under the Hood
The Altima is powered by a 182-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, or a 270-hp, 3.5-liter V-6, with both engine options using regular gas in a CVT transmission. Furthermore Active Understeer Control can brake inside front wheel in corners for improved handling.
Standard safety features include antilock disc brakes, electronic stability system, side-impact airbags for the front seat, and side curtain airbags. Additional options include blind spot warning system, lane departure warning, and moving object detection when in reverse.
