While the wraps were just taken off the all-new 2013 Nissan Altima this week at the New York auto show, the automaker has released pricing and information on when the sedan will go on sale. The fifth-generation sedan will start arriving in dealers as soon as July with a starting price of $22,280 (including $780 destination). As expected, it receives a bump in price of about $1000 over last year's model.
For 2013, Nissan redesigned the Altima inside and out with a more aerodynamic design, new interior features, and hardware tweaks. Standard on all models is a new Advanced Drive Assist Display which uses a 4-inch color screen to display trip information and navigation information in 3D-effect graphics. Also standard are new “neutral posture” shaped seats, Bluetooth connectivity and audio streaming.
Although the same 2.5-liter inline four and 270-hp 3.5-liter V-6 engines carry over to the new Altima, the 2.5-liter now produces 182 hp and, with a next-generation CVT, helps the 2013 Altima target 38 mpg. The 2013 will arrive in showrooms in July, and complete pricing on the seven sedan models can be found below:
