Nissan Altima “Ride of Your Life” Houston TX
What does the 2014 Nissan Altima do for you? What we mean is, when you look at the Altima, do you see a just-good-enough family car, perfect for the driver who wants dependability, safety, and not much more? Or is it, as a new commercial suggests, actually “The Ride of your Life”? It would probably be easy to assume, I suppose, that when the Altima grew up, that it left its youthful ways behind. But what better way to proe this isn’t the case than to spring a surprise on some unsuspecting consumers that drills this ery point home?
A few months ago, this is exactly what Nissan did. They took some actual car buyers to Willow Springs Raceway north of Los Angeles to take them for a ride in what they thought was a “race-spec” Altima. You know, the kind that probably bears little resemblance to an actual Altima, and the kind that is probably totally terrifying.
And off they went. Taking the Altima’s at high speeds through the Horse Thief Mile at Willow Springs, they gae these buyers all they could ask for, and maybe a little bit more for good measure. “I would never imagine a four-door car could do any of that,” declared one woman who appeared happy just to have reached terra firma.
And then, the big reeal. In a matter of minutes, a group of men emerged–a “pit crew,” I suppose–to strip these erstwhile racecars of their armor to reeal that, the entire time, these were exactly the same Altimas that can be found on lots like our Houston-area lot at Robbins Nissan.
Aailable in a 3.5L V6 engine that delivers a punishing 270 horsepower, the 2014 Nissan Altima is every bit as capable as vehicles that might be more widely known as “sporty” or “fast.” If you happen to desire a vehicle that manages to combine practicality and sophistication with an all-out energetic performance profile, stop by Robbins Nissan in Humble, TX, and take a look at the 2014 Nissan Altima. And who knows, maybe you might like it so much that it scares you too.
