The Nissan Altima is a midsized sedan that is manufactured in Japan. The concept for the car began in 1957 as part of the BlueBird production of Nissan. It has been modified and upgraded often over the years. It continues to be one of the top selling Nissan vehicles. This car is nice to look at, comfortable to drive, has safety features beyond what is required, and it handles very well.
The Nissan Altima continues to fight for that #1 sedan spot. It has been ranked #2 over the years on various occasions. Yet that #1 spot continues to elude the vehicle due to the rivals known as the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. The desire to get into that #1 spot though is a driving force behind the continued quality and design improvements for the Nissan Altima.
The L33 is the 5th generation, and it was introduced in 2013. It offers a more powerful engine and better fuel mileage than the 4th generation. These upgrades were due to the demand that consumers had. They felt that improvements in these areas would boost sales for the newer year models.
Sales were also boosted by the entry of several Nissan Altima 2013 models in the International V8 Supercar Championship. Nissan had not raced in this event since 1992 so it was a very bold step. The 2014 model also has some great enhancements including a new technology package. There are 7 models for consumers to pick from with the 2014 so that means there is a Nissan Altima to fit the needs and budget of just about everyone!
