Edmunds.com Best Retained Value Award
Nissan of Elk Grove is proud to offer a wide variety of 2014 Altimas for those looking for a combination of speed, comfort, and value! The 2014 Altima is already known for its comfortable drive, excellent gas mileage, and powerful engine, and the Edmunds.com Best Retained Value Award solidifies the Altima's place as an excellent family sedan that doesn't compromise when it comes to delivering the most bang for your buck!
Nissan is known as something of a risk taker among major car companies, but the 2014 Nissan Altima is all about staying the course. Following a redesign last year that brought it more in line with the larger Maxima's sense of style, the Altima sedan stands pat, save for a few equipment changes. There is good reason to be conservative:
One important ingredient in the Altima's formula is its smartly tuned ride and handling. The Altima feels more focused and responsive than many rivals do, yet it doesn't beat you up over bumps. That's the sort of thing that stands out on a test-drive, and the same goes for the Altima's continuously variable transmission (CVT), which is a factor in the car's excellent fuel economy (31 mpg combined with the four-cylinder engine) and strong, seamless acceleration.
The Altima is also known for its pleasant interior furnishings, which can be augmented for 2014 with NissanConnect Apps, a new smartphone integration system that brings services like Pandora into the mix. As usual, every Altima offers high-quality cabin materials and an attractive, sporty dashboard.
