The 2013 Nissan Altima has made its world debut at the New York International Auto Show.
The vehicle's stance is wide and despite retaining the same wheelbase as the last Altima model, it has increased its front and rear tracks by 1.4-inches and deepened the fenders by 0.8-inches each side. A new grille design and seamless bumper are also new additions.
The Altima features a longer sloping rear roofline and raised trunk as well as a more sloped A-pillar angle, lowered drip rail, a raised waistline and a raised and expanded trunk. The taillights flow from the rear into the body sides, while chrome trim and door handles finish the exterior.
The car comes with standard cloth seating with a 6-way adjustable driver's seat and a 4-way adjustable front passenger seat, a 60/40 split folding rear bench seat with an armrest, and a Piano Black interior trim with chrome finish accents.
Depending on the model, leather-appointed seats and trim, 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support, and metallic texture or wood tone trim finishers are available.
The new NissanConnectSM and Advanced Drive-Assist Display (ADAD) feature within the cockpit, with the NissanConnectSM offering Bluetooth hands-free and streaming audio connectivity, and a USB connection for iPods and other devices. The NissanConnectSM is displayed on a 7.0-inch touch-screen with 3D-effect map views, Voice Recognition, and turn-by-turn navigation integrated into the Advanced Drive-Assist Display.
