New Photo Gallery of 2013 Nissan Altima Sedan

|

With the start of North American production of the all-new 2013 Altima earlier this week, Nissan released a fresh batch of pictures of its sedan model.

The 2013 Altima is critical to Nissan's plan to increase sales in North America with the Japanese automaker targeting to beat the Toyota Camry in the popular mid-size sedan segment.

Last year, the outgoing Altima came in second place with 295,790 sales, some 42,000 units behind Toyota's best-selling model. However, the competition is expected to become stiffer this year due to the arrival of several new models including the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu and a redesigned Honda Accord.

The 2013 Altima launces with a choice of two gasoline engines, a 182hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit and a range-topping 270hp 3.5-liter V6, both matched to a reworked Xtronic CVT driving the front wheels.

Prices for the Altima start at $25,360.

looks like an ugly duckling on the exterior. one of the better nissan interiors i've seen though even better than infiniti

better than the 350zx or g35

Looks like generic dog sh!t. All these Asian sedans are more appliance than automobile nowadays.

Looks Lexus in the front.

maxwell_2 said... »May 18, 2012

This car is just beautiful, so classy looking, I want one.

Alex said... »May 18, 2012

Still not as nice as the 2.0T Sonata in white today.

You're entitled to your opinion, but no need to be rude. You're free to buy a malibu or fusion and not hate but instead just dislike. 

Snowninja1 said... »May 18, 2012

what's with all the ugly bulges auto mfg are putting on their models nowadays.

we need more sweeping sharp curves with continuity

this just looks like any sedan with cellulite and botox plump areas

Fliguy81 said... »May 18, 2012

Funnny...hahahaa, your just j/k right?

Fliguy81 said... »May 18, 2012

i think it looks 3x better than the previous model, good job nissan. personally the cvt tranny kills it as an serious option. the next gen honda accord better pull something great out of their magic hat with all the competition.

 Thanks for feeling the need to anonymously counsel me. In the future, I will be sending all my evil negativity your way. And, the day I buy a cookie-cutter sedan, American or Asian,is the same day I start biting my tongue.

After leading the field for so, so long, Japanese designs are falling behind their US and Korean counterparts. 

maxwell_2 said... »May 18, 2012

 The next Accord will have a CVT, now with Honda realizing the benefit of CVT that says it all.

Billy Farmer said... »May 18, 2012

I agree because even though I don;t think this is a attractive car I still see no reason to dog it for being unattractive,or dull as dish water. I do like the interior but man I would have to buy some good dark sunglasses to avoid the exterior as I exit the car.

Nilreps said... »May 19, 2012

Yuck, the new chrysler 200 due next year will be the one to watch. the new ford fusion is better, this car is a mess.

Andrew Dietsch said... »May 19, 2012

 Honda also made the crossover version of the Accord.  What does that say.  CVT's are terrible.

scottyrob82 said... »May 19, 2012

Looks like a stretched Versa. 

Alex said... »May 19, 2012

 Actually I'm not.

Alex said... »May 19, 2012

 Not exactly US, but Korean yeah.

Look at all these comments.......easy to tell when elementary schools are out for the week-end

Not to me. The original Versa and Quest and the last Sentra were products of a sort of Frenchish  - design history based - bit of postmodern design thinking. The Versa was a bit lumpy (form follows function) but also a bit decoishly artistic at the same time. Quest also. A bit of a different take with the Sentra. The first modern style Altima also shared some of that thinking. Modernist, but with some sort of 50's type stuff, like the Buck Rogers type taillights. The interior of the original Versa was also a bit Deco/Moderne, a bit different from any of the competition.

But it's a new era at Nissan. This new Altima continues some themes from the (two generations ago) one that established the brand. But it's a Baroque concoction underneath - incorporating a sort of Harley Earle GM 50's voluptualness minus the Buck Rogerersish visual entertainment, as seen already to less disasterous effect in Infinity models. It's really awful.

The upcoming Versa looks terrible too. Nissan design has really lost it. Probably some new total pandering jerk is in charge, but I haven't read anything about that. Anyone?

The grille is still not big enough and doesn't have enough horizontal lines... thank God they did not forget to keep the chrome mustache over the rear tag. I hope it comes in enough shades of grey and silver.

Guy Sumyung said... »May 19, 2012

LOL

 Ah...I really wanted to know who buys Aztek's and Toyota Echo's..I am glad to see its the 2 of you...

I think you are in a bad mood, this car is absolutely fine... classic. Did any one tease you by your name.  

Helcamino59 said... »May 20, 2012

 weak joke. Keep practicing.

Helcamino59 said... »May 20, 2012

 Plastic not classic. Knowing there are people like you that go out of their way to defend a fukin' Nissan Altima keeps me in a perpetual mood.

Alx said... »May 20, 2012

I seriously hope that the 3 people liked your comment due to detecting possible sarcasm.

Mechasadbear said... »May 20, 2012

If this is classic and fine,then so is poop.

Helcamino59 said... »May 21, 2012

Weekend isn't hyphenated. Stay in school.

dumblikeyou2 said... »May 21, 2012

I agree, but I wouldn't go that far with the Korean car thing. I want to see how well those Sonatas do after 10 years on the road.
I rarely see a Hyundai from the 80's or 90's still on the road.

Trex34_qw said... »May 21, 2012

Classic not plastic. Being all over the comments section tells who is going out of the way to attack a fine car. Chronic bad mood is bad for health. You can change your name.  

Trex34_qw said... »May 21, 2012

Look up Classic in the dictionary. Do you poop silver?

 In the words of the great George Carlin- In the interest of equal time, here is a message from the National Institute of Pancakes: It reads, and I quote, “Fuc k waffles.”

Alex said... »May 21, 2012

 Korean cars have come a very long way, those 90s models are not representative in the least of the new models. Plus the Koreans are offering good warranties, means they know the cars have got what it takes.

wow... you must have gone to school for creative writing.

Looks like a bigger version of the new Versa Sedan. Looks better than the older models though.
