2500 rpm family sedan usually not much to get excited about. In fact, it has traditionally been closer to idle than anything provides a real opportunity for entertainment. However, each of the 2,500 rounds of this 2014 nissan altima coupe offers a Frisson of excitement, when the wheels away from the concert. Why? Since they add up to 100 mph. In the four cylinders.

Seventy percent of the transmission parts are new, and the internal friction is reduced by up to 40 percent through a battery of small tricks that redesigned the interior of the lower viscosity of the oil pool.

To be fair, the trip did not plunge as far as they would slushbox, but 2014 nissan altima coupe keeps the engine in the power range of meat and still provide a fairly convincing performance, even against aggressive throttle openings. Anyway, these are difficult “stretched rubber band” CVT moments kept to a minimum, just rearing its head when the accelerator is buried in the carpet, and just for a moment. In most cases, we believe the most likely Altima drivers will not even notice they own CVT.
