New or Significantly Altered Models

2013 Nissan Altima
An all-new Altima bows for 2013. The new model is about 1 inch longer and 2 inches wider than the prior model. Although the new styling has some familiar lines, the overall look is very different with higher sides, an aggressive new grille and more steeply sloped front and rear windows. The Altima retains its two powertrain lineup, but power in the 2.5l four-cylinder engine has increased to 182-bhp. Nissan estimates highway mileage of 38 MPG for the four-cylinder.
2013 Nissan NV200
The NV200 is a small front-wheel-drive cargo van powered by a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine.
2013 Nissan Pathfinder
The long-running Nissan Pathfinder switches from a RWD/4WD body-on-frame chassis to a FWD/AWD unibody chassis, losing its traditionally angular styling in the process. With three full-rows of seating the fourth generation Pathfinder is longer and wider than before. Although the new model is shorter in height, passenger volume and leg room substantially increase. Nissan's ubiquitous 3.5l V6 engine replaces the 4.0l V6 and 5.6l V8 engines in the prior model. A CVT transmission is standard on all models. With a dramatically lower curb weight and a more fuel efficient engine and transmission, fuel economy improves by 4-7 MPG depending on the model.
2013 Nissan Sentra
The Sentra is all-new for 2013 with larger dimensions and styling that follows that of the Altima which was also redesigned for 2013. Compared to the old model, the Sentra has grown by .6 in. in wheelbase and 2 in. in overall length. The new model is shorter and narrower than before. On the inside, the Sentra is smaller in passenger volume but offers more combined legroom and increased cargo volume. A 1.8l four-cylinder engine becomes the standard engine. The smaller engine is less powerful, but more fuel-efficient than the outgoing 2.0l engine.
