Not a Shocker: Nissan Altima Named to Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com 10 Best New Sedans Under $25,000 List
The 2013 Nissan Altima was recently named to Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com 10 Best New Sedans Under $25,000 list. Each year, editors at Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com, a leading provider of new and used car information, drive and review nearly every new vehicle on the market to help consumers make an informed decision about which sedan is right for them.
Now, if you’re familiar with the 2013 Nissan Altima, this should come as no surprise to you but if you’re unfamiliar with the new Altima then you may not pay much attention to this and that would be a mistake. You see, the Altima has changed in many wonderful ways. Its bigger and bolder with better fuel economy. The 2013 Altima has been completely redesigned and some the reasons it was selected by KBB.com was for its “artful” interior, comfortable seats, and its unparalleled combination of outstanding fuel economy and impressive horsepower.
“The Nissan Altima was re-created to emphasize what most people look for in a sedan,” said Jon Brancheau, vice president, Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc. “In the last year we’ve taken great strides to ensure that this vehicle is fuel efficient yet fun to drive, comfortable yet stylish, and innovative yet affordable. Being honored by Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com further validates all of our hard work and highlights our passion for developing innovative yet affordable products the public can depend on and enjoy.”
It should also be noted this isn’t the first award for the 2013 Altima. Earlier this year, it was named to Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com 10 Best Family Cars List, which is why the Nissan Altima continues to be one of the top selling mid-size sedans in the United States.
Among the 2013 Altima’s many attributes are class-leading standard fuel economy of 38 mpg highway* (2.5-liter engine), new premium exterior styling with a strong presence and excellent aerodynamics, an upscale interior with premium materials, and an outstanding balance of ride comfort, stability and a fun-to-drive demeanor with projected best-level acceleration. Speaking of acceleration, the 2013 Altima boasts a redesigned 182-horsepower 2.5-liter DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine or a proven 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V6, with both engines mated to a standard Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission).
All of these accolades and redesigns are rather impressive, but honestly, seeing is believing. So, get on over to Carousel Nissan of Iowa City. They will be glad to help pick your jaw up off the floor after you take the 2013 Nissan Altima for a spin.
