Take Your Nissan To Auburn

Take Your Nissan To AuburnAuburn is just a short drive away from Jack Ingram Nissan and plenty of our customers come over from Auburn to see our big volume discounts. Auburn Nissan drivers know their town well enough but those new to Montgomery might not have made the trip over to the Loveliest Village on the Plains yet. Here are some must see sites in Auburn for any Jack Ingram Nissan driver.

Auburn University – Living in Alabama, you probably have a preference between Auburn or Alabama. If you root for the Tigers then a trip to Auburn must include a stop at Auburn University. Auburn has a beautiful campus that is best appreciated on non game days. This will give you a chance to stroll the very walkable campus and check out some of the nicest classroom buildings in the Southeast. Samford Hall (pictured above) is a can’t miss.

Auburn Tiger football games – On some fall Saturdays, Auburn changes from a quiet college town to a packed out, fan filled circus as fans pour in to see their Auburn Tigers play football. The home games take places at historical Jordan-Hare Stadium located in the heart of the campus. Nearly 90,000 fans pack out the stadium for 6 Saturdays in the fall  – get your tickets now for the next season!

Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art – If you are looking for something quieter than a football game, be sure to check out the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art located on Auburn University’s campus. This fine art museum hosts an impressive collection for a small town – check out pieces by Picasso, Renoir, Matisse and more!

Southeastern Raptor Center – The Southeastern Raptor Center is a must stop for families in Auburn. There they can check out rehabbing eagles, owls, hawks and more. The Raptor Center is not always open to the public, but you can check their calender to see if there is a show when you are in town.

Chewacla State Park – A must stop for families in Auburn is also popular with students. Ride out to Chewacla State Park in your new Nissan and you’ll find 26-acre lake, swimming area, playground, a modern campground, picnic areas with tables, grills and shelters, cabins, and hiking and mountain biking trails.

2015 Nissan Versa vs. Hyundai Accent

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

9742_st1280_159

As far as sedans are concerned, many people think that one model is really no different from the rest. This assumption is understandable. Sedans are your basic car and one of the most commonly seen on roads anywhere. However, this could hardly be the case. Take the popular Nissan Versa and its close competitor, the Hyundai Accent. Though both are sedans, the new models couldn’t be more different from each other.

Versa vs. Accent Technology

For example, the technology on the 2015 Nissan Versa is far superior to that of the Accent in that more options are available automatically. Driven primarily by Nissan’s desire to make their cars as hip and futuristic as possible, the Versa touts all sorts of different options such as speed sensitive speaker volume and wireless phone connectivity—features the Accent does not possess.

Versa vs. Accent Passenger and Cargo Space

Another different between the two models is in size, especially inside the car. The Versa possesses substantially more leg and head room than the Accent. But most impressive of all is the Versa’s cargo capacity. It has one of the largest carrying capacities in its class, which is rather impressive considering most sedans do not tout much trunk space. The Accent can’t even remotely match the Versa’s carrying capacity, giving the vehicle a great head’s up in long-distance travelling.

Versa vs. Accent Price

All these things together make the Versa probably one of the best deals you can ever make on a sedan. The biggest and most important difference between the new Versa and the Hyundai Accent is the price. The Versa starts at just under $12,000. The Accent, on the other hand, exceeds it by almost $3000! For so few options and a not as well-designed interior, it makes you wonder why the Accent is as popular as it is.

Altima vs Maxima: Here’s The Difference?

Thursday, September 18th, 2014
nissan altima vs nissan maxima difference

nissan altima vs nissan maxima difference

Comparing the Altima vs Maxima can be a bit challenging, as both are excellent options from Nissan and are fairly similar in nature. Both are considered midsize sedans with four doors and seat five passengers.

In terms of safety, the Altima and Maxima are nearly identical, but they are different in other respects. Although the Maxima tends to cost a bit more, this is due to its additional features. That means that these cars are truly neck and neck and the deciding factor of which to drive will mostly come down to personal opinion, budget, and the features you want or need.

Engine and Power

There are two different engine options for the Nissan Altima: a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and a 3.5-liter V6 engine. The Maxima automatically comes with this 3.5-liter V6 engine, making it comparable to the Altima 3.5 trims in terms of power, although it does slightly better. The Altima 3.5 gets 270 horsepower and 258 foot-pounds of torque, while the Maxima gets 290 horsepower and 261 pound-feet of torque.

Fuel Efficiency

As expected, the slight increase in power for the Maxima means that when looking at the Altima vs Maxima, the Altima will take a lead, however small, in terms of fuel efficiency. The Maxima gets a respectable 26 mpg on the highway and 19 in the city*. The Altima, on the other hand, has an impressive mileage of 27 mpg city/38 mpg highway and 22 mpg city/31 mpg highway* for the 2.5-liter and 3.5-liter engines, respectively.

Seating

The Nissan Altima has more legroom and headroom than the Maxima, making it better for taller drivers and passengers. The Maxima makes up for this, however, with eight driver’s seat adjustments compared to the six in the Altima as well as the addition of manual lumbar support. The only other difference in terms of seating between the vehicles (both in structure and material) is that while the Altima only offers adjustable headrests in the front, the Maxima’s headrests are adjustable in the second row as well.

Features

In terms of other features, the Maxima has more speakers than the Altima (at eight compared to six), and this is one of the additions you get for the increased price. Other additional features in the Maxima include speed-sensitive front wipers, cargo tie downs, and a leather steering wheel.

Whether you know which sedan you want or are still considering the Altima vs Maxima, the experts at Jack Ingram Nissan in Montgomery, Alabama, can help you make your decision.

Altima 2.5 vs 2.5 S vs 2.5 SV

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Altima 2.5S: Is this the right Altima for you?

The Nissan Altima is one of the most popular midsize sedans on the market, but to ensure you get the right car for you, you will need to compare the Altima 2.5 vs 2.5 S vs 2.5 SV.

Of the trim options for the Altima with a 2.5-liter engine, these are three of the four configurations, excluding the 2.5 SL, which is the highest option. As such, these three trims represent a wide range of features and comfort levels.

Major Points of Interest

For some people, a brief overview of the differences for the Altima 2.5 vs 2.5 S vs 2.5 SV is enough. In that case, it helps to know that the 2.5 comes with Xtronic CVT, Advanced Drive-Assist Display, a tire pressure monitoring system that includes an Easy-Fill Tire Alert, and Bluetooth. If you were to go with the 2.5 S, you would add on cruise control, Nissan Intelligent Key, and Smart Auto headlights. The 2.5 SV adds an eight-way power seat for the driver that includes power lumbar support, Remote Engine Start, 5-inch color display, a RearView Monitor, NissanConnect including Mobile Apps, and an upgrade to 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

Engine and Mechanical Features

These three trims come with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that delivers 180 pound-feet of torque and 182 horsepower. They have front-wheel drive and an Xtronic CVT drivetrain and get 38 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city*.

Exterior Features

In addition to the change in wheels (16-inch steel wheels in the 2.5 and 2.5 S, but 17-inch aluminum-alloy ones in the 2.5 SV), there are some other smaller differences in terms of exterior features. The 2.5 has projector type halogen headlights, power exterior mirrors, and solar glass. The 2.5 S adds Smart Auto headlights, and the 2.5 SV adds fog lights and the option of a moonroof.

Technology

The 2.5 comes with a standard AM/FM/CD system with four speakers, steering wheel controls, auxiliary audio input jack, and Bluetooth. Upgrading to the 2.5 adds two more speakers (for six in total) as well as the option of SiriusXM Satellite Radio, USB port with iPod compatibility, and speed-sensitive volume control. Opting for the 2.5 SV changes the audio system to a premium version and makes the optional features from the 2.5 S standard.

2015 Altima: What’s New?

Monday, September 8th, 2014

2015 Nissan Altima

During the search for a new car, many people begin to wonder about the 2015 Altima changes. Knowing what was updated between the 2014 and 2015 model year can help you decide which option you want to go with.

NissanConnect

The 2014 model year had NissanConnect as standard in some trim levels and optional in others. One of the 2015 Altima changes was the addition to the 3.5 SV and 3.5 SL of NissanConnect as standard. This includes Navigation and Mobile Apps, making it much more convenient to be connected on the go.

Advanced Safety

A large proportion of the 2015 Altima changes were made to the 3.5 models, particularly the SV and SL. The 3.5 SV and 3.5 SL added several advanced safety features as standard. These include Lane Departure Warning, Moving Object Detection, and Blind Spot Warning, each of which are designed to supplement the RearView Camera. One more change in safety features was the addition of standard fog lights to the 2.5 SV trim.

Improved Fuel Efficiency

The improvements to the 2015 Nissan Altima continue with improved fuel efficiency for the 3.5 trims. As the 3.5-liter V6 engine is more powerful than the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder one, it does continue to do slightly worse in terms of gas mileage. Despite that, Nissan was able to improve the fuel efficiency by 1 mpg on the highway and combined ratings for the 3.5 trims (including 3.5 S, 3.5 SV, and 3.5 SL). This is done via several changes, such as a reduction in internal friction and an improvement in air intake resistance.

Improved Seating and Comfort

Although the 2014 Altima was comfortable, several trims see improvements. The SV trims get the addition of two-way power lumbar support and eight-way power for the driver’s seat. The SL trims add a four-way power adjustable seat for the front passenger, and both the SV and SL trims now have Intelligent Climate Control in addition to their Remote Engine Start System.

To learn more about the 2015 Altima changes or get a feel for the vehicle, head over to JIN in Montgomery, Alabama.

Honda Fit vs Nissan Versa

Monday, August 25th, 2014

2014 Nissan Versa Sedan

Both entered the subcompact market segment in 2007, but which vehicle wins the race: Honda Fit or Nissan Versa. To begin with we will examine the main purchase point, the price. Off the rip the Nissan Versa comes out on top with an ultra-low starting price of only $11,990, which is about $4,000 less than the Honda Fit which starts out at $15,525. Therefore, if the two vehicles offer the exact same amenities as each other, the Versa would be an automatic win, but let’s consider the specs of both cars. When it comes to our vehicles we love options. Trim levels offer the buyer the ability to pick and choose exactly what they buy and how much they spend. The Honda Fit is offered to the buyer in 4 separate trims, two of which give the option of automatic or manual transmissions. The competing Nissan Versa not only offers multiple trims, but it is also offered in two body styles: sedan and hatchback (Versa Note). The sedan itself is available in 4 trims, in addition the Versa Note hatchback style is offered in 5 separate trims. Manual and automatic options are also available.

The numbers speak for themselves and the Nissan Versa trumps the Fit again in terms of versatility. If you are in the market for a subcompact then fuel economy matters to you. The Honda Fit is now offering an all-electric style which gets an estimated 118 MPGe, yet its limited availability in the US and the lack of charging stations in most areas make this option incomparable. The gas powered Fit however, offers around 33 mpg city and 41 mpg highway*, while the Nissan Versa offers a comparable 31 mpg city and 40 mpg highway*. In terms of fuel economy these numbers are essentially the same given both are estimated averages. So when deciding on your subcompact keep in mind your bottom line and option availability and then check out your future Nissan Versa at Jack Ingram Nissan in Montgomery, Alabama.

2014 Altima 5 Reasons to Buy

If you are in the market for a top notch, mid-size sedan at an economical price, then you should consider the 2014 Nissan Altima available at Jack Ingram Nissan in Montgomery, Alabama. The 2014 Altima is a vehicle of style, comfort, safety, and exemplary fuel economy – not to mention a starting price of around $22k which is sure to draw you in closer.

Value

Most recently the 2014 Nissan Altima was awarded for the Best Retained Value in the mid-size sedan segment from Edmunds.com. With a starting price in the low twenty thousands, it has been proven to hold approximately 47% of its value over 5 years, meaning this vehicle is worth the investment and is a true match to its rivals such as the Toyota Camry. This is only one reason why it is also one of the Most Popular Midsize cars of the 2014 year as well.

Style

The trends of the time are to be different and stand out, and that is precisely what the 2014 Altima does. This big body, muscle sedan has a hefty grill, expressive fenders, and dual exhaust tail pipes which add that extra desirable appeal.

Fuel Economy

Although at first glance the 2014 Altima is a muscle car, the 2014 redesign removed more than 100 lbs contributing to its best in class fuel economy ranking. Getting 38 mpg highway, and 27 city*, this efficient 4-cylinder will make you and your wallet happier.

Room for More

Didn’t think a full-size feel could be packed into a mid-size space, think again. The 2014 Altima provides more interior head and leg space than any other vehicle in its class. The front seats offer 45 inches of leg room and 40 inches headroom with the backseats not lacking, providing plenty of room for the 6 (plus) footers.

Comfort

The interior design of the Altima was stepped up for the 2014 model. Drivers claim it to have a more luxurious and comfortable feel than its competition. Special features such as the NASA inspired Zero Gravity seats, piano black trim and optional wood accents, and the fabrics which give the feel of a cozy living room make the ride of the Altima seem flawless.
