2014 Nissan AltimaDuring the month of April, sales of the 2014 Nissan Altima continued to explode as more and more customers settle on this smooth-running and comfortable family sedan. Aside from the successful, record-breaking month of sales, the Altima also enjoyed some recognition as Cars.com named it their Most Affordable Midsize Sedan for the year!

Two contributing factors to the Altima’s success in the segment are its great gas mileage and very good crash test results. To even be considered for Cars.com’s most affordable midsize sedan challenge, the Altima needed to meet a number of criteria and to have several features, including cruise control, an automatic transmission, Bluetooth connectivity, power windows, a USB port, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a rear-view camera. The Altima met each of these requirements and went even further, offering a low five-year estimated fuel cost and a great warranty with dependable construction that keep cost of ownership down.

2014 Nissan Altima Places on KBB’s 12 Best Family Car List

2014 Nissan AltimaKelley Blue Book (www.KBB.com) has released their 12 Best Family Cars of 2014 list, and it is certainly not without its share of surprises. Chief among them is the fact that a quarter of the vehicles appearing on the list are sedans. Here at Nissan of Clinton, we don’t much mind, nor are we terribly surprised that one of the Best Family Cars of 2014 happens to be the 2014 Nissan Altima.

KBB admits that the Altima did little to draw attention to itself during their family-car testing, and that the reason it walks away at the end of the day with Best Family Car distinction is a matter of substance.

“The Altima is roomy, surprisingly so, and it packs a lot inside, too. The layout’s easy to use, the front and rear seats are comfortable, and it’s easy to install and uninstall child booster seats. More importantly, it doesn’t do anything really wrong, either. The features you need are standard, and if they aren’t, they’re probably on the options list.”

Of course, it’s not as though the 2014 Altima is any ol’ Sarah, Plain and Tall, either. It looks good, drives well, and delivers more than enough performance to surprise even the most demanding driver.

But where the 2014 Altima really excels is space…the final frontier. Okay, not that space (we’ve just always wanted to say that). KBB plaudits the Altima for seemingly defying physics with its spacious and roomy interior. Comfort is a vital factor in a family vehicle, and the Altima scores big in this department.

But don’t just take our word for it (or even the word of KBB for that matter): come down to Nissan of Clinton this weekend and test drive the 2014 Nissan Altima for yourself. If you’ve got a growing family, chances are that you’ll be glad you did.

Important Factors to Consider When Shopping for a New Car

Shopping for a new car might seem complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. With this helpful guide, you will never have to feel lost on a dealership lot again. Here are some of the most important factors to consider when shopping for a new car:

Safety and Security

In order to help mitigate the risks of the road, you should always consider a vehicle’s safety systems before deciding to buy it. Driving a car with less than par safety systems is a risk no one should take, so when perusing your choices, make sure you consider cars with airbags, anti-lock brakes, and traction control. Remember, the more airbags that deploy during a collision, the less likely you are to suffer trauma in the event of an accident.

Engine Performance and Handling

Driving a car that is fun is one way to eliminate a boring commute to work every day, and a high performance vehicle has the power and grip necessary for a thrilling ride. When you are considering a car, ask the sales associate about its horsepower and skid-pad performance. The horsepower of the car will enable you to gauge its power against other models, and the skid-pad ratings will provide you with similar information for handling characteristics.

Features and Functionality

You should also consider the ergonomics and features of a car that are related to entertainment. Compact disc players and satellite radio aren’t as important as seatbelts, so they should not eclipse essential safety features as far as your buying priorities go. If you find yourself stuck between two options, however, comparing the entertainment features can help tip the balance toward one vehicle.
