2014 Altima SV: In a word,

Editor’s Ratings:

The 2014 Altima is one of those cars just feel right to me. I this latest generation the time I drove one at the 2013 Car of the Year competition. And those were reinforced as soon as I pulled out in this week’s car.

Altima is offered in trim levels for 2014 and our is a middle-of-the-pack SV with 2.5L 4 and a base price of $26,198. A V6 is available, but the 2.5 is all you really need. a modern and dependable engine continuously variable valve a variable induction system, ignition system and drive-by-wire

Responsiveness is good and I don’t mind the CVT — the only available. It’s noticeable when the car is under hard for extended periods, such as climbing a long hill, the engine gets a little in typical CVT fashion.

Controls for the and HVAC systems are the direct of the Ford Fusion, with an of easy-to-use knobs and switches you can operate with gloves on.

The front seats are comfortable and but the base SV seating surface is cloth. It’s a grabby which keeps you from around in hard cornering, but is a magnet for lint, dust and of dirt. Keep the vacuum or go for the more expensive 2.5 SL with interior.

At the SV trim level Altima overloaded with hi-tech but with the optional $1,100 Package you get useful stuff as turn-by-turn navigation with flight and weather service, spot warning, moving detection and lane departure Standard SV features include XM radio, power moonroof, outside mirrors, tire monitor, remote keyless with push button traction control and a dynamic control system.

Blind spot warning are in the A-pillars, where they’re to see than when positioned in the mirrors.

Altima SV feels and quicker than most of its midsize rivals and objective from the Automobile Journalists of Canada (AJAC) bears out. With a 0-100 time of 8.6 seconds Altima’s 2.5 is than Toyota Camry, Sonata or Ford Fusion with 4-cylinder engines and is faster in the 80-120 km/h test with a time of 5.7 Both of those numbers are than decent for a family

At 436 litres Altima may not have the same trunk space as rivals, but it’s still a size and the split rear fold forward when you to carry longer items.

Altima 2.5 SV is attractive, roomy, priced and delivers decent economy, good acceleration and a track record for reliability. more can you ask of a family sedan?
