The 2013 Altima 2.5 SV is so thoroughly conceived and executed, it might be the first time you’ve lusted over such garden-variety transportation since you took the training wheels off your bicycle.

If you add up all of the Altima’s parts and combine those with its more dynamic driving experience, it’s a better car than the Camry. And even if you’re not interested in performance, it still delivers impressive fuel economy, great seats and a compliant ride.

The Altima continues to offer hallmark brand qualities while adding improved exterior design, interior refinement, plenty of new features and, of course, that best-in-class fuel economy rating.

The 2013 Nissan Altima’s features, value and efficiency should make it an equally fearsome foe for other midsize sedans.

The new Altima is clearly not an involving sports car made for enthusiasts. A smart, efficient, roomy, and very comfortable sedan is what it is, and a great value for your hard-earned dollars.

Nice as its convenience technologies are, the Altima’s major attraction for us is its performance on the road. We find the Altima an attractive alternative to the other big players in the class.

Certain aspects of the new Altima didn’t change, but a lot more did. As lovers of driving, we’re thrilled to report the Altima’s sporting disposition remains intact. And technology is an Altima strong point.

The new Altima remains one of the most engaging family sedans, and now its fuel economy approaches 40 mpg on the highway. At that level, Nissan should have no problem attracting the most frugal family-sedan buyers.

The exterior styling of the new Altima is, in a word, elegant. Step inside and you’ll be greeted by a luxurious interior. And the handling has also been noticeably improved.

What we have here, friends and neighbors, is a great car that’s gotten even better. The Altima looks great, feels great, and delivers lots of choices and decent value-for-money.

We liked the previous-generation Altima for its responsive handling, composed ride and user-friendly electronic features. These things continue, and they are now complemented by more expressive exterior styling and a higher-quality cabin.
