Ever wonder why there are so many Altima's on the roads? Nissan's breadwinner has sold more than 3.8 million cars in 20 years and four generations. Now in its fifth generation, the 2013 Altima is cited as the most refined, efficient and upscale Altima ever. Motor Trend, for example, lists the 2.5-liter inline-four with the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) "America's most efficient traditional midsize family sedan that's not a hybrid or diesel."

According to Nissan, their 2013 to 2016 automatic transmission uses two pulleys with a steel belt running between them. To continuously vary its gear ratios, the CVT adjusts the diameter of the "drive pulley" that transmits torque from the engine and the "driven pulley" that transfers torque to the wheels at the same time. Unlike conventional transmissions that use sets of fixed gears, the CVT provides smooth and "stepless" ratio changes that avoids shift-shock and delivers exceptionally smooth and efficient driving.
