2014 Nissan Altima named “Most Affordable Midsize Sedan” by Cars.com
To be considered for this coveted recognition, contending vehicles were required to have an automatic transmission, cruise control, a USB connection, Bluetooth®, power windows, power driver’s seat and a backup camera. These features, coupled with a favorable five-year estimated fuel cost, resulted in the 2014 Altima’s top ranking in the popular online shopping website’s annual survey of midsize sedans.
“The 2014 Nissan Altima is equipped with an abundance of features that meet the growing expectations of our consumers, while still remaining a cost-effective vehicle to own,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations. “Year-over-year sales growth and an expanding list of accolades like this recognition from Cars.com demonstrate why Altima continues to be a leader in the midsize segment.”
The 2014 Altima is core model for Nissan, as well as one of the top selling cars in the United States. The Altima offers a premium exterior and interior, along with driver-focused technology. Its many attributes include outstanding fuel economy of 38 mpg highway (2.5-liter engine only) and an excellent balance of ride comfort and stability with a fun-to-drive demeanor. The 2014 Altima is offered in seven well-equipped models to meet a range of needs and budgets, including the choice of a 182-horsepower 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine or a 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V6. Both engines are matched with a smooth, efficient Xtronic transmission.
In addition to calling the 2014 Nissan Altima the “most affordable midsize sedan”, Cars.com also made a point to cite its “great” gas mileage and “very good” crash test results.
