Mobile spy 00 altima

 

My last “real” job in the field I was formally trained for was working on the advanced engineering of the NS-generation (1996) Chrysler minivan, and as such I retain a high level of interest in innovation in this unloved and shrinking segment. Following the introduction of Chrysler’s Pacifica , you might think there’s not much remaining “white space” for innovation, but indeed Honda has found some .

On the standard seven-seater Odyssey , the middle row seat can be configured for “wide mode” with the two seats placed far apart to ease loading and buckling a kid into a child seat, or they can be easily slid inboard to facilitate egress to the third-row seat. They can meet in the middle for marginal access from either side (and “buddy mode” seating), or they can gather on one side of the car or the other, opening up a much wider entryway to the rear. If you’re sensing déjà vu, the 2014 Odyssey seats could be unlatched at the rear, slid inboard, and relatched. The new mechanism to slide them is far easier to operate, even by kid-sized hands.

There are a few BIG downsides, though. Obviously these seats don’t disappear into the floor (as the third row still does) when it comes time to lug the four-by-eight sheets, but neither do their seat backs fold down flat to allow such sheet goods or other bulky items to ride on top of them. If you do need all the space, phone a friend to help, as they weigh 69 pounds each when it comes time to stow them in the garage.

After a major redesign for 2013 , the Altima remains largely the same for 2014. However, noteworthy refinements include upgraded seating materials, the latest NissanConnect infotainment system, and a sport value package that includes 16-inch allow wheels, remote engine start, and trunk lid spoiler.

The Nissan Altima is the automaker’s popular midsize sedan that fits above the smaller Sentra and below the Maxima in the lineup. Once available as a coupe, the 2014 Altima is now only sold as a sedan.

The 2014 Altima is Nissan ’s entry in the competitive midsize sedan segment, which nips at the heels of the sales-leading Toyota Camry . EPA estimates for fuel economy place the Altima either slightly or significantly ahead of the Camry in efficiency. The miserly 2.5-liter I-4 puts its 182 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque down to the front wheels via CVT for a rating of 27/38 mpg city/highway. Stepping up to the more powerful 270-hp 3.5-liter V-6 that makes 251 lb-ft of torque will get you 22/31 mpg.
