So far, in 2013, the Nissan U.S. auto company is having a great year. This year, Nissan was recently named on Intrabrand’s Best Global Green Brands 2013, named Most Affordable Subcompact Sedan of 2013, byCars.com, and has had great success with the Nissan Leaf and many more achievements. This June, the company sales in the U.S. increased to produce the best ever sales performance.
This June, U.S. sales for the auto giant increased 12.9% to set the new record. Overall, a total of 104,124 Nissan vehicles were sold in the US. The four main contributors to these record breaking sales include the Pathfinder, Sentra, LEAF and Altima. For June, the Pathfinder was the best seller, increasing 208.9% with 8,360 units sold. These four vehicles were not the only showstoppers; the Rouge also broke new sales records up 41.1%.
For 2014, Nissan has created the all-new 2014 Versa Note as a hatchback model. As the industry’s best selling compact car, the hatchback is predicted to produce more buyers with the class-leading fuel economy, equipped with the latest technologies, stylish design and extra room to fit buyer’s needs.
We are often so enthralled with the inside of the car that we sometimes miss the more important things about a car. One of these things is the transmission put in the new 2013 Nissan Sentra the new Continuously Variable Transmission or CVT for short. This new transmissions is changing the way cars will be driving!
Transmissions typically have gears. 5, 6 ,7 gear that determine how fast the car can go and how smoothly the car will run. That however is a thing of the past. The New CVT has an ingenious steel belt and pulley system that will move the “gear” of the car up!
If you’ve driven any car before you’ll be familiar with what’s known as shift shock. That bump you feel when you accelerate, that’s your car trying to catch up. That little loss of power is when the car is missing a gear. But thatnks to think new belt system, there is no gear to miss! This just a continuous acceleration without out any hiccups! No loss of power, no shock just pure raw power!
The new CVT even sounds different! This futuristic belt system has a sound to match! It’s an almost “high-tech” sounding single tone that changes pitch when the car is going faster. It sounds almost like a space ship!
Plus and perhaps the most important thing is this CVT will last longer! Because there are no gears there are less moving parts! Less parts, makes for less heat and less friction! There by making your engine last longer!
Make sure that you take a second to meet CVT in the new 2013 Nissan Sentra. You may not see him when you look at the new Sentra, but you will defiantly know that he’s there once you start to drive!
