Still fresh from the total makeover last year is the 2014 Nissan Altima Sedan. It comes with very few changes for this year’s edition but nevertheless still very desirable with gorgeous looks and styling, fierce power, impressive fuel efficiency, and of course the easy-to-afford price tag. Kicking the leg of the family sedan segment, the Altima continues to boasts of athletic handling which totally inspires drivers. Just when we thought that sedans are supposed to behave like sedans, Nissan gives us the Altima as an option for those who simply are not satisfied with adequate power.
You simply have to love Nissan’s boldness when it comes to taking risks in this complicated and competitive world of automotive industry. For 2014, the Altima is still being compared to its larger counterpart, the Maxima. What amazes us is how Nissan was able to pull Maxima’s sense of style and carry it over to the Altima but in a different sense. The result is a still conservative but energetic and engaging 2014 Nissan Altima Sedan.
The energy comes from either a four-cylinder engine or the optional six-cylinder engine. The latter of course gives more power but the four-cylinder also does growl with efficiency. You would not miss any of those music-to-the-ears growling sound on either engine. A continuous variable transmission or CVT is standard for both engines. This is responsible for the absolutely responsive and smooth operation.
EPA is estimated at 27/38 mpg city/highway for the base engine which is great for the segment. However, it is the handling that makes the 2014 Nissan Altima Sedan a total standout among the rest of the family sedans in the market today.
There is no doubt that the 2014 Nissan Altima Sedan remains one of the most engaging and sophisticated family sedans today. Its appeal goes beyond good looks and great engine performance. If you have always dreamed of the luxurious sedans from Audi and BMW, you might want to check the 2014 Nissan Altima Sedan out. This could be the closest you can get to that dream of yours in so little time.
