2013 Altima® Sedan 2.5 SL


27 mpg city, 38 mpg hwy

A four-door sedan delivering small-car fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance. Get around town on 27 mpg and get down the highway at 38 mpg. [*]

182-hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine

With the fuel efficient 182-hp engine, you'll get both efficient performance and the long lasting value you deserve. Amazing gas mileage and strong, smooth power delivery add up to a winning combination. [*]

Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission)

Say goodbye to fixed gear ratios and hello to a new kind of CVT. In the newest version of our CVT, friction is reduced by up to 40% and the ratio coverage is increased to greater than that of some 8-speed automatics. What does that mean behind the wheel? Better acceleration and fuel economy, plus performance so smooth, it’s like riding a continuous wave of power.

Active Understeer Control

A Nissan first, the 2013 Altima is equipped with Active Understeer Control to give you a smooth, controlled, and comfortable ride. The system senses understeer and oversteer and subtly applies braking power to the inside wheels when you are turning, giving you sharper handling in all conditions.


Altima is one of a select group of Nissan vehicles to wear the PUREDRIVE™ badge. PUREDRIVE™ is a key part of our commitment to achieve lower, eco-friendly levels of CO2 emissions. The technology focuses on improving fuel efficiencies and reducing CO2 emissions. And that’s something we all can smile about.



Aggressive design

Dramatic styling and serious performance credentials give the all-new 2013 Altima an aggressive disposition. Underneath, the stance has been widened for better handling. Outside, functional character lines and powerful styling lower the aerodynamic profile, while chrome accents underscore Altima’s bold new attitude.


Those chiseled curves and muscular lines aren’t just for show, they are all there to reduce drag and make the all-new 2013 Altima one of our most aerodynamic sedans ever. The hood, front fascia, mirrors, and even the taillights, were re-engineered to help drop the coefficient of drag to a slippery 0.299. A lower coefficient of drag means better handling and, most importantly, better fuel efficiency.

17" Aluminum-alloy wheels

The 2013 Altima 2.5SL is equipped with 17-inch lightweight aluminum-alloy wheels and low-profile 215/55 R17 All-season tires.

Smart Auto Headlights

The 2013 Altima’s headlights read and react to light conditions outside, automatically turning your lights on and off when needed. The lights also react automatically to your windshield wipers, turning on after four swipes.

LED taillights

Altima’s premium LED taillights are brilliant not only for their stylish, integrated design, but also for their incredible visibility.

Folding outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators

Subtle but practical, Altima’s powered outside mirrors offer flexibility in tight squeezes, while the LED turn signals provide extra awareness to surrounding vehicles and pedestrians.



Leather-appointed seats

Take a moment to indulge in Altima Sedan's plush interior. Leather-appointed seats and other unexpected upscale touches offer you and your passengers ultimate comfort and style.

Bose® Premium Audio System with 9 speakers including woofers

The Bose Premium Audio System fills the Altima with music of both depth and precision. Nine speakers channel sound throughout the vehicle, for an expansive musical experience in both the front and back seats. [*]

8-way power drivers seat with power lumbar support

Comfortable combinations are endless with the 8-way adjustable driver’s seat. And with the power control, personalizing your driving experience is easy and efficient.

Heated front seats and steering wheel

The first time you try heated seats on a cold morning, you’ll wonder how you ever did without. They quickly and efficiently warm things up for your and your passenger, and your hands get the same luxurious treatment from the heated steering wheel.


The all-new 2013 Nissan Altima comes equipped with a suite of technologies. Hands-free phone capability, streaming audio, messaging, navigation and lots more, all accessible from Altima’s centrally located 7” screen. [*]

Advanced Drive-Assist™ Display

Advanced Drive-Assist™ Display is an innovative new system designed to help keep you focused on the road. The crystal-clear, 5.5-inch LCD screen is centered in the instrument cluster and displays navigation settings, text messaging, and call interactions, service warnings, maps, travel directions, and more. [*]

Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control (ATC)

This feature lets the driver and the front passenger set their own temperature.

Nissan Intelligent Key® with Remote Engine Start System

The Nissan Intelligent Key® lets you tap a button on the door handle or trunk to unlock them, while your keys stay in your pocket or purse. Before you even get there though, you can start your car from up to 100 feet away with the Remote Engine Start System. This convenient solution lets you heat up or cool down the Altima before it’s time to get in, provided you set the climate control functions when you got out. [*]



Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with individual tire pressure display and Easy-Fill Tire Alert

Take away the guesswork when it comes to your tire pressure with Altima’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System. A signal illuminates on your dash to tell you when your tire pressure is low, and the individual tire pressure display will indicate which tire is low on the Advanced Drive-Assist™ Display. When filling your tires, the class-exclusive Easy-Fill Tire Alert gives you a friendly beep of the horn when you’ve reached the right pressure. [*]

Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with Traction Control System (TCS)

This standard feature—sometimes called stability control—continuously monitors your steering and braking actions, senses any oversteer or understeer, and compensates by reducing engine speed and/or applying brake pressure to specific wheels. In addition, the Traction Control System can sense front wheel slip or spin and responds by instantly helping reduce throttle which helps you both regain grip and maintain control of the road. [*]

Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD)

This innovative braking system responds automatically to changing conditions. ABS helps you maintain control by working to prevent wheel lockup during emergency braking situations. And if the rear of Altima is weighted with passengers, cargo, or even just a full tank of gas, Electronic Brake force Distribution sends extra force to the rear brakes to compensate.

Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS)

Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. The inflation rate of these dual-stage air bags adjusts depending on crash severity and seat belt usage. In addition, two supplemental air bags are built into the front seats to offer side impact protection and move with you as you adjust your seating position. Also, roof-mounted curtain side impact supplemental air bags help provide head protection for both rows of outboard occupants. [*]

LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren)

LATCH is another way we’re working to keep children safe. The Altima LATCH system lets you secure LATCH-compatible child restraints in the back seat without having to use seat belts or a locking clip.
