2014 Nissan Altima 3.5 SV 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl CVT)
My first car was a 280Z. While I prefer my 2008 Maxima's ride personally, if I were in the market for a new car I would probably choose the V6 Altima since it has the same engine and _much_ better mpg (~27 vs my 22 average).
It has the standard 18" alloys that were an option on my '08 Maxima and is a IIHS Top Safety Pick + which is the highest possible. Its also a bit slimmer which I prefer.
bullet proof V6 engine, new seats, standard Bluetooth, standard no-key-in-hand Intelligent Key entry and Ignition, 18" alloys, upgraded suspension
more bolstering on the front seats for sport driving, AWD option would be great!
