Looking for floor mats for your 2013 Nissan Altima Sedan? There are a number of factors to think about when deciding which mats to purchase. Some of the things to consider are which mats complement the car's interior, protect it, are safe and provide good value.

Here are five tips to keep in mind when buying floor mats for your Nissan Altima

 1. Ensure the mats are designed for your version of the Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima is offered in two versions: coupe and sedan. When choosing floor mats for the Altima you will want to make sure that you are purchasing a set specifically for your version of the car. The coupe mats will not fit properly in the sedan, and vise-versa. You will also want to make sure that the floor mats are for the 2013 and not the 2012 Altima. For 2013 Nissan completely redesigned the car and the prior model's mats will not fit properly in the new version.

2. Ensure the floor mats blend in

The interior of the new Altima is a work of art. Nissan spent a lot of time perfecting the space where the driver and passengers will spend the most time. The cabin has a light and airy feel to it. When choosing floor mats you should pick a floor mat design that does not detract from the overall design theme of the car. Clearmats work well to maintain the factory appearance while offering high levels of protection.

 

 

3. Choose the material that fits your lifestyle

Vinyl and rubber floor mats are very durable, waterproof, and easy to clean. Rubber floor liners like those from WeatherTech and Huskyliner have long been favorites of people in work trucks or who spend a lot of time in heavy mud and deep snow conditions.husky liners black These types of mats actually replace the original manufacturer mats. For drivers who face some snow, a little summer sand, and kids along the way, a clear protective layer may be all that you need to keep the factory mats looking like new. 

4. Trim packages do not affect floor mat selection

The floor mats in the 2013 Altima Sedan 2.5, 2.5 S, and 2.5 SV are all the same dimensions. Thus when choosing an aftermarket floor mat you can feel confident that the mat you are purchasing will fit the trim package level of your Altima as long as it is designed for your 2013 Altima Sedan.

 

 

5. Make sure the mats won’t slide

This is just as, if not more, important than finding a mat that is the same dimensions as the factory mats. Be sure to find a mat that has sharp grippers on the bottom so that the mat will stay firmly in place and not slide under or over the pedals.
