Nissan Dominates 10 Best Family Cars of 2013 List

2013 PathfinderThe 2013 model year has been an exciting one for Nissan. With several models receiving fresh new looks and features, Nissan is ready and able to compete among the best brands in the world, and win! Proof of this can be found on Kelley Blue Book’s recent list of 10 Best Family Cars of 2013. The redesigned 2013 Altima took the ninth spot on the list, while the all-new 2013 Pathfinder beat out every other contender and cinched the number one spot. Both vehicles are now available at our Greenville, MS dealership.

The 2013 Nissan Altima debuted earlier this year with a sharp new look, excellent fuel economy rating, and a comfortable, tech-savvy interior. This five passenger sedan also received excellent safety ratings and an abundance of new safety features including blind-spot monitoring. Needless to say, it is a very worthy contender on this list from Kelley Blue Book.

And now on to the champion of this list, the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder! To say Pathfinder was redesigned for this model year is an understatement; this SUV has been completely reinvented. Gone is the boxy, rigid, truck-like styling of previous Pathfinder models and in its place is a smooth yet sporty exterior design that resembles today’s crossover more than an all terrain SUV. Improved fuel economy, better handling, and a more comfortable ride make the new Pathfinder more appealing to families that may have overlooked it in years past. With these updates, Pathfinder is finding its niche now in suburban garages rather than back road trails.

2013 Altima Boasts Three Features Only Seen Previously On Luxury Models

2013 AltimaThe all-new, completely redesigned 2013 Nissan Altima has created a lot of buzz since it arrived in dealerships several weeks ago. This innovative sport sedan has been installed with features that were only seen on luxury models prior to the new Altima’s influx. Three of these features we’d like to highlight all center around the rear-camera of this vehicle.

One available luxury option on the 2013 Altima is Lane Departure Warning. The rear camera scans the road for lane markers and the camera is ‘smart’ enough to know if the car departs from the confines of the lane. If this occurs, the camera sends a signal to light up an icon on the dashboard and relay audible cue sounds to the driver.

Blind Spot Warning is another luxury feature that can help make the driver aware of their surroundings. If another vehicle enters Altima’s blind spot, an icon lights up on the dashboard to alert the driver. If the driver disregards the warning and attempts to change lanes by activating their turn signal, an audible cue will sound to alert the driver again.

A third available feature on the new Altima is Moving Objective Detection. When the car is put in reverse, the camera quickly begins scanning the environment behind the vehicle. If the camera detects a moving object while scanning this area, a beeping cue sounds and a yellow frame surrounds the rear camera image in the center dash in the car’s interior.

2013 Altima Wiper Innovations Benefit Drivers in Rainy and Cold Weather

Windshield wiper functions usually do not get thought about much, but when cold and rainy weather hit, windshield wipers can be invaluable. Nissan took notice to drivers’ needs and added two new changes to their 2013 Altima.

One feature new to the Altima wipers for the 2013 model year is called “auto-park wipers.” When the vehicle is shut off by the driver while the wipers are still in motion, the wipers will now complete a full cycle before coming to rest. This will ensure wipers will always rest at the bottom of the windshield and prevent them from getting stuck and freezing in the middle of the windshield in cold and icy environments.

The other feature now available on the 2013 Altima is the addition of automatic headlights responding to wipers. Headlights on the 2013 Nissan Altima automatically turn on after four wiper cycles. Approximately 30 states require headlights to be on in rain or heavy fog. This new feature of linking headlights to wiper cycles keeps drivers safe and helps them stick to the rules of the road.

These two new windshield wiper innovations come on most 2013 Nissan Altimas. Visit James Ceranti Nissan today to experience this for yourself.
