Azerbaijan imports new model of Nissan Altima

The 2013 Nissan Altima has a new CVT on all models, and the choice of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 182 horsepower or a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 270 horsepower. While changes to the engine aren’t dramatic, updates to the transmission come with 70 percent of the continuously variable transmission (CVT) components being redesigned with an expanded gear ratio, while friction has been cut by 40 percent to help free-up horsepower.

The 3.5-liter V6 is strong, but the massaged 2.5-liter four is more than adequate – Nissan clocks it at 0-60 mph in 7.1 seconds) – at least for light loads and level roads. The radiator grille seems two sizes too large and is shaped like the upper two-thirds of Lexus' new signature grille -- and it's punctuated by a Nissan badge so large it would look at home on a building. The headlights and taillights come across as caricatures of the lights on the 370Z and the Maxima, and the side profile recalls Acura and Infiniti more than anything else.

Price of new Altima makes AZN 26.9-36.9 thousand.
