This new family sedan by Nissan features a 2.5 litre four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable transmission. It delivers an improved fuel economy and comes with a much-needed visual upgrade, making it one of the best sedans on the market.

The 2014 Nissan Altima is a practical yet slick-looking family sedan that offers plenty of power and fantastic fuel economy. For years now, the Altimas have lagged behind the likes of Toyota Camry and Honda Accord in the midsize sedan market, which is why Nissan has decided to step up and deliver something a little more competitive with its 2014 Altima. The first and most noticeable aspect of this sedan is its new shape, which comes from advanced manufacturing techniques that allow for innovative design features and complex surfaces. For instance, the front end now carries the arrow-like cues of Infinitis and other Nissans, making the headlamps and taillights to look more angled and allowing the sidelights to blend seamlessly with the body. The fenders now appear to bulge a little, like they do for Nissan's Juke crossover. On the inside, however, the 2014 Altima is much more conservative looking, with straight lines dividing the front panel's control stacks. The biggest improvement is the added space for larger LCD screens and other entertainment systems, which has allowed the Altima to catch up with its competitors from Korea and the United States. Thanks to this addition, there are now heaps of new features connected to audio and Bluetooth, which include audio streaming, incoming text-to-voice translation, streaming from Pandora, an auxiliary jack, a CD player and a central display in the instrument compartment that shows all the information to the driver. Outside of all the cosmetic additions, the 2014 Altima also boasts a standard four- and six-cylinder engine, both of which offer plenty of power and impressive fuel economy. That said, the drivetrain can become loud at higher speeds, making the vehicle mostly suitable for travelling from point A to point B at reasonable speeds and not much else (but that's what sedans are for anyway!). Overall, the 2014 Altima looks and handles better than its predecessor, which makes it a viable alternative to some of the best sedans on the market. So, if you're looking for a new family car, don't dismiss Altima as one of your top choices.

The 2014 Altima borrows most of its visual cues from Infinitis and Maximas as opposed to previous Altimas. One of the more obvious Infiniti-inspired features are the arrow-like headlights and tail lamps. The grille design is also much simpler now, looking more like the top part of an hourglass – similar to the ones found on several Maxima models. The interior of the 2014 Altima is 1.4 inches wider than the previous models, with front legroom sitting at 45.0 inches and back legroom being 36.1 inches. Headroom is now 40.0 inches at the front and 37.1 inches at the back. That said, sunroof-equipped models lose roughly one inch of that space. Nissan has also added an extra bit of comfort to the Altima's seats, which have been remodelled to follow NASA's new research findings. The driver's seat is adjustable six ways, with the option of eight ways, while the passenger seat is manual in all trims.

Power and Performance:

The 2014 Nissan Altima features a 182-horsepower, 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine with a continuously variable transmission. The EPA city rating for this car is 7.5 litres per 100 kilometres, while the highway rating is 5.1 litres per 100 kilometres, which puts it on the same level as some hybrids and even above leading sedans like Hyundai Sonata. The only problem here is that the drivetrain can get a little too loud at higher speeds, which may annoy certain drivers. The Premium Altima comes with a 270-horsepower, 3.5-litre six-cylinder engine, which has a slightly quieter drivetrain and the same continuously variable transmission. Additionally, this model includes standard paddle controls and a manual shift mode. All the models feature an independent suspension, which now has Sachs shocks for smoother handling. Nissan has also removed lateral links from the rear suspension to create a wider, more rigid axis for improved wheel control.

Interiors and Special Features:

Like the previous models, the 2014 Altima includes five seats that sit on a 109.3-inch wheelbase. The front seats are adjustable four ways for the passenger and six for the driver. There's also an option of having a power driver seat and/or heated front seats. The back seats fold down to expand the trunk and are available in leather. Other features include automatic headlights, LED taillights, heated rearview side mirrors, a 7-inch navigation screen, dual-zone climate control, a rearview camera, a glass sunroof and a pushbutton start.

Safety features:

Since this is a family car, the 2014 Altima comes with a plethora of safety features, including standard or optional rearview camera, blind-spot monitors and lane-departure warning systems. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have both given the car their highest safety ratings.
