2013 Nissan Altima Owners Manual

2013 Nissan Altima Owners Manual - Maturity has its upside--but we'll sure miss the frisky old feel of the Nissan Altima. For most of the past decade and a half, the Altima's been one of the more sporty, scrappy sedans put forth for families. Quick steering, a taut ride, and adventurous styling left it out of mass-market appeal, but since 1998, Nissan's been reeling it in, closer and closer to the mainstream.

This year's redesign completes the process: the 2013 Nissan Altima delivers on the priorities of the families that drive it. It's now a thoroughly comfortable, five-star-safe sedan, but it's no longer the sharpest to steer or the quickest to get a grip on the road. With its simplified powertrain lineup, a pared-down and dressed-up cabin that makes way for new infotainment systems, and space-race seats that go long on comfort, the 2013 Altima has gone mainstream, in all the right ways.

The new Altima begins life with a new shape, which Nissan says comes from an emotional take on styling, and some advanced manufacturing techniques that enable some complex surfaces on the attractive new body. The front end wears some of the angled, arrowed cues of other Nissans and Infinitis at the headlamps and taillights, while the side glass tapers gradually to a tasteful backstop. The fenders swell out in ways that recall Nissan's compact Juke crossover. The interior's a big contrast: it's conservatively drawn, with straight lines dividing off the center stack of controls from the driver and the passenger. There's also more space left for larger LCD screens for more advanced infotainment systems, a selling point where the Altima's lagged behind the Koreans and Americans.
