With so much discrepancy between each vehicle’s list of standard equipment, it can be deceiving to compare cars based on their starting prices. That’s why Cars.com only evaluated models that offer several popular features when determining the most affordable midsize sedan for 2014. The auto-research site found that the 2014 Nissan Altima 2.5 S with the Display Audio Package leads the popular midsize segment in real-world affordability, besting similarly equipped models of the 2014 Hyundai Sonata and 2014 Toyota Camry.
To qualify for the Cars.com evaluation, midsize-sedan models were required to have an automatic transmission, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, a USB outlet, a backup camera, a power driver’s seat and power windows. After its purchase price and five years of fuel expenses were factored in, the Nissan Altima 2.5 S with the Display Audio Package was estimated to run its owners a total of $32,820, costing $2,384 less than the segment average. Regardless of model, each 2014 Altima is equipped with a Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, an auxiliary audio input, Push Button Ignition, NASA-inspired zero-gravity seats and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Easy-Fill Tire Alert.
“Midsize-car buyers don’t want the cheapest model on the market; they want the most affordable model after all the useful, modern features are included, and that’s the Nissan Altima,” said Gabe Despres, general manager of AutoFair Nissan Tewksbury, a Massachusetts Nissan dealership. “Also, the Altima continues to provide excellent value long after it leaves the dealership thanks to its efficient-yet-responsive powertrains.”
Coming standard with a smooth-shifting Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT), the 2014 Nissan Altima returns up to 38 mpg on the highway with its base 182-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. For even more engaging acceleration, buyers can opt for a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 270 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque while still netting up to 31 mpg on the highway. When performing in the turns, the Altima benefits from an Active Understeer Control system and a redesigned multilink rear suspension that pulls from the engineering of the Nissan 370Z sports car.
