I think that the new Altima looks great but will definitely have some serious competition from the new Ford Fusion. Overall I do not know how I feel about the new Altima's design. To me it looks exactly like the Nissan Maxima, which was a HUGE problem for the last generation Altima and Maxima. But Nissan seems to have the designs of these two cars too close to each other. Just looking at the Hyundai Sonata and Azera, you can tell they share similar design cues but you won't mistake an Azera for a Sonata. I do believe this model will hurt the sales of the Maxima once again. Why would anyone get a Maxima when they can get the Altima with a very good V6 engine, basically the same styling, and for a cheaper price? I am sure the Altima will continue to sell well and I know it will catch up to the Toyota Camry. I just want Nissan to separate the Altima and Maxima for good!
The new 2013 Nissan Altima will go on sale this summer. The base model Altima will have a MRSP of over $21,000.
