As Nissan celebrates record-breaking Altima sales in April, potential buyers have another great reason to consider Nissan’s top-selling vehicle. Citing its “great” gas mileage and “very good” crash test results, Cars.com has named the 2014 Nissan Altima the “Most Affordable Midsize Sedan.”
To be considered for the Cars.com’s most affordable midsize sedan challenge, contending vehicles were required to have an automatic transmission, cruise control, a USB connection, Bluetooth®, power windows, power driver’s seat and a backup camera. These features, coupled with a favorable five-year estimated fuel cost, resulted in the 2014 Altima’s top ranking in the popular online shopping website’s annual survey of midsize sedans.
“The 2014 Nissan Altima is equipped with an abundance of features that meet the growing expectations of our consumers, while still remaining a cost-effective vehicle to own,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations. “Year-over-year sales growth and an expanding list of accolades like this recognition from Cars.com demonstrate why Altima continues to be a leader in the midsize segment.
The 2014 Nissan Altima, a Nissan core model and one of the top selling cars in the U.S., offers a premium exterior and interior and driver-focused technology. Its many attributes include outstanding fuel economy of 38 mpg highway (2.5-liter engine only) and an excellent balance of ride comfort and stability with a fun-to-drive demeanor.
