2013 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Usually cars have tradeoffs. Power vs. gas mileage. Ride comfort vs. handling turns. Size vs. price.
The Altima somehow seems to defy these tradeoffs in a way I've never experienced before. I don't know if its new improved technology or money.
It has an eager powerful engine mated to an excellent transmission thats knows what you want to do. Great mileage (32.5mpg mix). Handles turns great while providing supple ride. All with tons of interior room.
One of the best cars I've ever driven.
Transmission. Handles hills extremely well. Always eager. Well mated to the engine.
Electronics and controls are a typical mess for cars. I wish Apple would design the car interface. So many random buttons everywhere. No USB port for charging, but bluetooth works well.
