Taking styling cues from its big brother Maxima, Nissan unveiled the all-new Altima mid-size sedan this week at the New York International Auto Show.

Growing in size, the 2013 Altima keeps the same 2.5-liter 4-cylinder and 3.5-liter V6 engines with a slight bump in power. The bigger news is the next-generation CVT transmission that helps improve fuel economy by as much as 15 percent. As a result, Nissan claims best-in-class fuel economy for the Altima.

To find out just how efficient, watch AutoGuide’s first look video below.

    I expected better from Nissan, this is an increasingly odd design language.

      This is a beautiful car, looks very much like a Lexus and ride like one too. The interior is also beautiful, way above class actually. Oh by the way I own one so I am not just shooting off my mouth like most of these people. My wife just had occasion to drive 2013 Camry and she thought it was far inferior in luxury and ride. Their cruise control was in an awkward place and not convenient to access. Interior fabrics were cheap and looked like a taxi cab, however the car did ride well and was also Comfortable .
