The 2014 Nissan Altima has hit dealerships across the country, and although it may have been completely redesigned for the previous model year, the 2014 Altima, Nissan’s top-selling vehicle, offers significant enhancements sure to please customers.
NissanConnect has been expanded for the new model year, adding apps and in-vehicle smartphone integration for both the iPhone and Android operating systems. Included with the updated program include online search powered by Google, Pandora, Facebook, and iHeartRadio will be soon added to the list. Navigation through NissanConnect will include SiriusXM Travel Link, which includes weather, gas prices, movie times, and stock updates.
The new model wouldn’t be complete without the revised cloth upholstery, enhanced noise insulation, as well as chrome exhaust tips on all models. Nissan adds a new package to the options list, the Sport Value Package that brings 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, remote engine start, and a trunk lid spoiler. A Technology package, which includes NissanConnect with Navigation, NissanConnect Apps, and SiriusXM Travel Link, blind spot warning, moving object detection, and lane departure warning, and Display Audio package that adds a 5.0-inch color display, rearveiw monitor, satellite radio, and NissanConnect Apps, have also been added for the new model year.
Last year, we compared the five best-selling new midsize sedans and ranked the Altima mid-pack because of its seeming lack of refinement relative to the competition. Now, it looks like Nissan has worked to fix those issues.
