    2013 Nissan Altima vs Maxima 0-60 MPH Mashup Review

    The brand new 2013 Nissan Altima and the new 2013 Nissan Maxima are two family sedans cut from the same cloth.

    Of course the Maxima is Nissan’s top of the line sedan while the Nissan Altima slots right below the Maxima in both price and performance…or at least so we thought until we tested both cars in another fun and informative TFLcar Mashup Review.

    There’s of course no doubt that the Maxima is the more expensive of the two Nissan sedans.

    It also can be had with the more powerful V6 but what about size and performance and perhaps more importantly which car is the better driver.

    Check out this video comparison to find out which Nissan sedan is really the top dog.

    Editor’s note: The VQ series engine has been a Nissan staple for decades. Nissan knows how to build a hell of a V6 and has one stuffed in one of the best cars ever – the current GTR. Then again, Nissan builds the Nissan Versa too.

    The VQ may be a tad long-in-tooth and the Maxima, which is due for a major refresh for 2014, needs a new engine to keep up with its sporty persona.

    1. definitely like the looks of the Maxima over the Altima – sportier and more coupe-like – but perhaps that contributes to it’s lack of room in back. But hey guys – I’m really really wanting to see your review of the new Honda Accord and the new Mazda 6. I just can’t believe that you can’t get your hands on a Honda – it’s been on sale now for a couple of months.
