Aerodynamics. We built the all-new 2013 Nissan Altima to slip through the air with more ease and less resistance than ever because frankly, drag is a drag.
Next Generation Xtronic CVT® According to the old school of thought, to improve performance, you just keep adding gears. CVT virtually eliminates them by using a single metal belt that runs around a pair of variable-diameter pulleys. Once a transmission isn't limited by fixed gears, it can operate far more effectively. So whatever your right foot asks for, CVT responds with the perfect engine speed.
PUREDRIVE™ Altima wears the PUREDRIVE™ badge, meaning it meets or exceeds the Federal CAFE fuel economy standards for 2016, reflecting our commitment to continue developing environmentally friendly technology for all.
Weight Reduction. To create the all-new 2013 Nissan Altima's outstanding fuel economy, we put it on a diet. Using ultra-high strength steel and aluminum, we were able to significantly reduce its weight. Then we lightened the engine, and improved overall aerodynamics. The result - heavyweight performance and fuel economy in a lightweight package.
Multilink Rear Suspension. The all-new 2013 Nissan Altima's redesigned multilink rear suspension delivers instant steering response and maximum tire contact for handling that'll tackle the passing lane as easily as the carpool lane.
Redesigned Brake Pedal. To improve brake responsiveness and feel, we thoroughly studied how people step on them. The result is a brake pedal that not only feels firm and effective, but reduces foot and leg fatigue as effectively as the brakes stop the Altima.
Active Understeer Control. The all-new 2013 Nissan Altima's Active Understeer Control system sets even the sharpest turn straight. It works by braking the inside wheels for better control through corners for a more confident feel behind the wheel.
Outstanding Acceleration. Accelerating in the all-new 2013 Nissan Altima will propel you from 0-WOW faster than you can say "hang on". Did we mention it's a 4-door sedan?
The Nissan Safety Shield includes over 50 safety features
specifically designed to help take care of you. Standard air bags*, six
of them, are there to help cushion the blow if one should occur. And
every Altima includes the LATCH System for easier child seat
installation. In addition, Altima can be equipped with Blind Spot
Warning, Moving Object Detection and Lane Departure Warning systems.
BLIND SPOT WARNING*
When another vehicle is in your blind spot area, an indicator appears inside the door next to the side mirror and on the Advanced Driver Assist Display. Put your turn signal on, and the warning light illuminates, while a chime sounds to alert you.
If Altima's next-generation RearView Monitor system detects something moving behind your vehicle while in reverse, it gives both visual and audible alerts. You can even change the camera angle to get a wider perspective.
Using the rearview camera to monitor the painted lines on the road, the Lane Departure Warning will give you both visual and audible alerts if it detects an unintentional straying from your lane.
