We’re entering probably the biggest year ever for the Nissan Altima.
The popular Nissan model was completely redesigned for 2013, and received rave reviews from the experts. The top features include 38 MPG, all new style and NASA inspired seats. In part because of that great redesign, Nissan announced Wednesday that it has sold its 4-millionth Altima in the United States.
Nissan also announced that it broke all time Altima sales record in 2012, selling nearly 300,000 Altimas.

“Since the first Altima rolled off the line at the Nissan Smyrna Vehicle Assembly plant in 1992, the nameplate’s reputation for quality and reliability has grown stronger with each new model,” said Brian Carolin, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “The 2013 Altima lives up to this standard with its five-star NCAP safety rating, and it adds best-in-class fuel economy as well as class-leading style and content.”
The 2013 Altima, which is the brand’s leading seller, has been on sale since August, is manufactured in Nissan’s manufacturing plants in Smyrna, Tenn., and in Canton, Miss., which employ about 12,000 workers.
Other exclusives include active under-steer control and convenience features such as “Easy Fill Tire Alert.” Altima introduced lane departure warning to the segment.
