First Drive: 2013 Nissan Altima
This is war. This is as personal as it gets. The 2013 Nissan Altima draws first blood against 2012 Toyota Camry and the upcoming 2013 Honda Accord among other contesting midsize sedans. With engine sizes standardized (usually 2.4 / 2.5 liter) across car brands, the winner in this segment will be decided on options and features. Which brand offers more options than the competition?
We decided to find out first hand by attending the test drive event right after the techno light show launch (no kidding, check out the launch report). The event was held at The Address Hotel, Dubai Mall. We promptly show up at 10am, only to find out some invitees had veered off (pun intended) to the OTHER Address Hotel at Downtown Dubai. Plus there was an accident on Sheikh Zayed Road which further delayed the proceedings. The dust finally settled and we started off with a brief media presentation, followed by our test drive.
First Stop: Dubai Polo Club, Arabian Ranches
