The 2013 Altima has vast similarities to the 2012 model, for instance— updates to the base four-cylinder that add seven horsepower and, along with changes to the CVT (continuously variable-ratio automatic transmission), increase fuel mileage.
About 70 percent of the continuously variable-ratio automatic transmission’s parts are new and friction is cut, accounting for 40 percent of the mileage boost, Nissan says. The 2013 Altima gets, 27 mpg in the city, 38 highway and 31 combined, up from 23/32/27.
The 2013 Altima goes on sale later this summer, June 26 to be exact. So don’t for get to visit us here a Greenville Nissan to see what all the Altima hype is about!
