2014 Nissan Altima Review
The 2014 Nissan Altima is a quality made sedan that offers enough room and convenience for
families as well as style and performance for Boston’s single
professionals. This year’s model starts at $21,860 for a 2.5 CVT and
$30,660 for the 3.5 SL CVT. The IIHS has awarded the Altima with its
Top Safety Pick.
The Altima has several upgrades from the 2013 version. There is improved
noise isolation, revised seat cloth and chrome exhaust tips. The Sports
Value Package includes 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels, a remote engine
start and a rear spoiler. There’s also a NissanConnect system, which is
compatible with iPhone and Android handsets. Applications include
Facebook, Google, iHeartRadio and Pandora.
The Altima is for sale in seven different models: 2.5, 2.5S, 2.5 SL, 2.5
SV, 3.5 S, 3.5 SV and a 3.5 SL. The 2.5 SL has 182 horses and a 2.5
liter inline 4 cylinder engine. The 3.5 SL has 270 horses and a 3.5
liter V6 engine. Each style of Altima has a standard Xtronic
continuously variable transmission.
This year’s Altima has more of a mainstream appeal as it has a stylish
cabin, space race-style seats with extra comfort and a simple powertrain
lineup. More space is provided for a large LCD screen and the
infotainment system. There is an optional rearview camera, lane
departure warning system and blind spot monitors. Other optional
features include LED taillights, heated side mirrors, automatic
headlights, Bose audio, a USB port and a glass sunroof.
The vehicle seats up to five. The seating is more comfortable than in
previous years for both the front and back passengers. The base models
allow the driver to adjust his seat six ways and the front passenger can
adjust his in four. Heated seats and a power driver seat are available
at an extra charge. The rear seats can fold over to increase trunk
storage space. Leather seating is available.
The Nissan Altima has excellent fuel economy for a vehicle of its size.
It gets an impressive 27 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. The
souped-up 3.5 SL will provide 22/30 mpg.
