First Drive: New CVT For 2013 Altima

For most new-car continuously variable automatic (CVTs) make a lot of sense. smooth and fuel-efficient; they get the most acceleration out of engines; and allow low-rpm cruising. to conventional automatics, they’re less expensive.


But they’re not so reassuring to those who like to enthusiastically.

Nissan has installed CVTs into its vehicles any other automaker; and now it’s in the of giving them their significant redesign since the began introducing them most of its model line a decade ago.

The first of these new CVT units has made its debut in the U.S. in the Nissan Versa sedan. all-new global CVT for engines 2.0 liters—which we may soon see in the Juke and amazingly compact yet has a super-wide span of 7.3:1, thanks to the of a special ‘subtransmission’—an additional essentially, that gives flexibility like the crank on a classic ten-speed bike.

2013 Altima getting version

Next up to get a new-generation CVT is the redesigned 2013 Nissan it will debut in North with a different new CVT design for engine capacities from 2.0 to 3.5 The new CVT has 40 percent less friction the current unit, and it covers a ratio span of 7:1—made with a different belt along with an only increased pulley distance.

While we don’t have any information on the new Altima—you’ll probably to wait until next for that—we got to drive the new Altima’s installed in a mule (a current-generation Altima) with the existing VQ 3.5-liter V-6.

More and ‘linear’

What we observed in a test course, at Nissan’s RD at Oppama, Japan, is that has worked to even further some of the rubber-band responsiveness makes some setups CVT feel less appealing. Tip the throttle gently, or even and the CVT keeps locked to its ratio for a taking advantage of the V-6’s torque and giving more confident power delivery. the throttle down, however, and it the revs rise quickly to run the into the strong 5,000-rpm-plus of its powerband.

The bottom line, for shoppers who are about waiting until year for the redesigned Altima, is it looks like there be some significant gains in and drivability. If this quick of this next-gen CVT was any indication, system that will go the Altima, Sentra, Rogue, and compact and mid-size products is more delightful than somewhat more sluggish new that goes in the Versa

Expect gas mileage gains, Nissan expects that might improve by as much as ten could put a base 2013 Altima with the CVT well the 35-mpg mark.
