2013 Nissan Altima First Drive Review: What Is It
The next 15 months are going to be crucial for Nissan. Five of its core products - representing 70 percent of its total annual sales in the United States - will be redesigned in this time period, and the first of which to hit dealerships is the all-new 2013 Nissan Altima. After 20 years on the market and more than 4.4 million units sold since, the Altima is easily one of Nissan's strongest products as evident by the fact that the car was a runner up to the Toyota Camry as the best-selling car in the U.S. last year despite being one of the oldest cars in its segment. Aside from the Ford Fusion, all other mid-size sedans have either been redesigned or introduced to the market since the fourth-generation Altima debuted back in 2007, and with the 2013 Nissan Altima due to hit dealerships in July, we recently went to Nissan's North American headquarters in Franklin, Tenn. to put some miles on the new car for this first drive review.
