2014 Nissan Altima 0-60 Track Test: Why Do We Test Family Cars on the Track? [Video]

2014 nissan altima race track lapThe guys are back with a track test review of the 2014 Nissan Altima. Equipped with the 2.5L 4-cylinder engine and a continuously variable automatic transmission, this car is definitely not designed for track flogging. That might seem a bit silly to review a car like this on the track, but the racetrack tells us things about the car that relate to rear-world driving without having to worry about traffic, other people, or hurting the car or ourselves.

Both Nathan and Roman are surprised at the Nissan on the track. No, it’s not a sports car but it does turn in a respectable time. What time is that? You’ll have to watch the video below.

Also, the video addresses the question more in-depth on why we review cars on the track, with explanations of the testing procedures by both Roman and Nathan. Check it out!
