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.

Nissan Xterra Ranks High on List of Best Off-Roaders

Nissan XterraWhen you think of the term ‘off-roader’ many things come to mind. You may think of a big, muscular, mammoth looking truck-based SUV that can run over anything and everything in its path. You also probably imagine a vehicle that can take on gravel, dirt, small pools of water, and any other type of terrain it meets. It’s likely that most vehicles described as off-roaders don’t do well as vehicles for everyday driving. The Nissan Xterra is the off-roader that breaks the mold. This SUV is powerful and brawny, yet easy to drive for everyday commutes, and has recently been ranked on Edmunds’ Consumers’ Favorites poll of Best Off-Roaders.

With a versatile cargo area and easy-to-clean interior, Xterra is a capable compact SUV that isn’t afraid to get a little dirty. It’s great as an off-road vehicle and provides a surprising pleasant on-road driving experience for a rugged SUV. Xterra ranked fourth overall on Edmunds’ list of Best Off-Roaders.

If you’re looking for a more than capable off-road vehicle that can survive in the real world, the Nissan Xterra is the ultimate choice for you. Stop by James Ceranti Nissan and take it for a spin.
