Bad choice

2014 Nissan Altima Ecmel Rahul - San Diego, CA 10/22/2015

Horrible car. It's loud and the throttle is not responding well. Breaks down too often. Stay away from it.

I love it!

2014 Nissan Altima Erhunda Culp - Nashville, TN 12/19/2015

I love everything abourlt it. It has luxurious style while having just the right pick up. Perfect amount of space for everyone.

Couldn't have chosen a better car for the money

2014 Nissan Altima Cher Berry - El Monte, CA 05/31/2016

I wanted a BMW, but was having a hard time finding one in my price range. My son found this one on the Carmax website. This car is so much better. Not only in price, but in comfort, styling and in driving. I rented a BMW prior to purchasing this car, and honestly, the Altima has just as much room and comfort. The style is rgreat too. Never had all the bells and whistles either.

2014 Nissan Altima Overview

The Nissan Altima was first released as a compact car in 1992, though its original releases were meant to be a continuation of the previous Nissan Bluebird. Today, the Nissan Altima is manufactured as a midsize vehicle and is currently in its fifth generation of production. The 2014 Nissan Altima, available in seven different trim levels, is a popular sedan option among budget-conscious drivers looking for a reliable car at a great value.

2014 Nissan Altima History

While still part of the Altima's fifth production generation, the 2014 Nissan Altima saw some notable changes when compared to previous model year releases. Considering the Altima received a complete redesign by Nissan in 2013, many were surprised to see so many changes to this vehicle just a year later. One of the main differences between the 2014 release and previous releases was the fact that Nissan actually discontinued the coupe option for this model year. Furthermore, additional changes and upgrades included:

  • Smartphone integration
  • Additional of a Sport Value package
  • Wider package offerings on different trims
  • Improved fuel economy

How It Drives

For a budget-friendly midsize vehicle, the 2014 Nissan Altima offers pleasant moments behind the wheel. Specifically, drivers have reported that they enjoy the responsive handling, surprisingly powerful acceleration, and comfortable ride in this vehicle. Many car-shoppers are also surprised to learn that the 2014 Nissan Altima has some of the fastest acceleration in its class, with the capabilities to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just over six seconds. Despite the relatively basic exterior design of this vehicle, the actual driving experience may leave some drivers to feel as though they're behind-the-wheel of a sportier car.

Even around sharp turns and corners, the Altima boasts excellent steering and handling. Furthermore, road and wind noise are mostly muffled inside the cabin even at highway speeds, making it an excellent choice as a family vehicle, daily commute vehicle, or both.

Used 2014 Nissan Altima Value

Original MSRP for the 2014 Nissan Altima began right around $22,000 for a base model, which is on par with many of the competitors in its class. In terms of overall value, buyers enjoy the fact that the Altima retains its value, and it is not difficult to sell a used Altima for nearly $20,000 (or more) today, depending on trim level and condition. Compared to similar vehicles in its class, such as the Kia Optima and Chevy Malibu, the Nissan Altima is priced much cheaper and gets better fuel economy. Overall, this is a great purchase for those who want to stretch their dollar without making sacrifices in terms of long-term maintenance costs or fuel efficiency.

Design & Performance

At first glance, there admittedly isn't much to say about the exterior design of the 2014 Nissan Altima. While it comes in a number of trim options, most of them are relatively sedate and a bit boxy, lacking some of the sleekness of its competitors. Still, for those who prefer a more athletic look, there is a Sport Trim Package available that features:

  • 16-inch alloy wheels
  • A trunk lid spoiler
  • An overall sportier design

No matter which trim level you decide to go with, you'll likely be impressed with the 2014 Nissan Altima's fuel economy. Even with a standard continuous variable transmission (CVT), the car packs quite a punch and still delivers 25 mpg average combined (22 city and 31 highway). Not bad at all for a car its size, especially considering its V6 engine. Those who opt for the standard four-cylinder engine will enjoy even better fuel economy at 31 mpg combined (27 city and a whopping 38 highway).

Powertrain & Engine

Speaking of the engine, the 2014 Nissan Altima comes standard with a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine at 182 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. With its CVT, which sends power to the front wheels, the 2014 Nissan Altima is able to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in less than seven seconds, which is almost unheard of in its class.

Some trim levels of the Altima come with an upgraded 3.5-liter, V6 engine at 270 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque. It is worth noting that all trim levels and engine options come with the standard CVT.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

Despite its small price tag, the 2014 Nissan Altima boasts a premium interior on all trim levels. Specifically, drivers will enjoy:

  • A large gauge cluster
  • NissanConnect infotainment system
  • Patented zero gravity" seats for driver and front-seat passenger
