2014 Nissan Altima CVT- Continuously Variable Transmission

The five seat Altima for 2014 is available in four trim options but only as a four door Sedan with the coupe dropped from the lineup this year. The body has been revised and the interior upgraded in a good way as well, the automobile rides on the same chassis as last year with a 109.3 inch wheel base. The engine for the base models-a 2.5 liter four banger gives 182 hp and a very quick 3.5 Litre V6 develops 270 hp and produces 258 lb-ft of toque. Both engines are coupled to the power train with a CVT transmission in all the trim options. The best news for this car is the CVT transmission that drives the front wheels.

This can save you money in the short term on fuel and, if you plan on keeping the car for a long time, the CVT transmission could save you a bundle in drive chain repairs as well. For some reason, unknown to me, the Nissan Corp. saw fit to provide useless, unneeded dummy shift paddles and made the CVT simulate shifting-ask the salesman in the showroom why-I certain he can provide an answer. Please have a look at the previous post on this site regarding the operation and principals behind the workings of this very simply designed automatic transmission.

On the outside of all trim options the front fascia and headlight setup now looks a bit more like its siblings as does the tail light configuration. The side glass is gradually tapered and the fenders are reminiscent of Nissan s crossover heritage. The inside has been finely dressed but was also simplified in the process.

The car now has a larger LCD screen and a higher quality infomatainment system putting it up to the same or better than most of the competitions offers. The handling is responsive, the ride is smooth, and the more uptown seats have a six way adjustment to put it into the correct position for you. Leather covering is an option for the Altima as is heated front seats and a power adjustment for the driver’s seat is also a possibility, while for basic models, the 60/40 split rear seat adds to available trunk space.

Both engines available provide either adequate or exceptional power while the Continuously Variable Transmission has no gears and can propel you along without the jolt of shifting gears that other types of automatics give. All this and the 2.5 L will produce 27/38 mpg while the 3.5 L offers 22/31 city/highway for fuel consumption. The smooth ride is provided by the independent springs and the upgraded “Sachs” shock absorbers while the steering now is accomplished with a new hydraulic system making it more responsive.

The Altima has all the safety features of the competition along with all the electronic warning systems available as options. The car gets a perfect five stars overall for safety by the NHTSA. The base Altuma “S” has a sticker price of $21,500.00 while the most upscale “SV” version could be yours for as low as $30,000.00 MSRP but if you want to add some of the goodies available the cost will be proportionally higher.
