Though Nissan planned originally to have a hybrid version of the 2013 Altima, they have decided to take some more time to build a car the brand can be proud of. They have announced an Altima hybrid will be available for wide distribution within the next two years. The gas-fueled 2013 Nissan Altima made its debut during the new York Internationl Auto Show last week, and without a hybrid system still has an MPG rating of 38 MPG.
The new vehicle is slightly wider and weights about 79 lbs less than the current Altima model. The 2013 Altima will be powered by a 2.5 liter 4 cylinder engine which generates 182HP and 180 lb ft of torque. Buyers will have a choice to upgrade to the 3.5 liter V6 engine producing 270HP and 258 lb ft of torque. Outside of the hood, more styling tweaks have been introduced in the new vehicle including a modified interior alongside new infotainment system, navigation, Bluetooth, iPod/USB connectivity and Google integration.
