The 2013 Altima adds two new features that try to continue that tradition. If a bit too light in feel, a new Electronic Hydraulic Power-Assisted Steering adds a decidedly firm on-centre pushback. While the also-new Active Understeer Control brakes the Altima’s inside front wheel in a turn to aid in cornering. When pressed hard, you can feel it working. Out back, a redesigned multi-link rear suspension “steers” the rear wheels slightly when cornering hard.
