Now that NASA has landed its Curiosity Rover on Mars, the agency expects to have a manned mission on the Red Planet in the 2030s.
Check out more news on the 2013 Nissan Altima.
But what if instead of flying to Mars, an astronaut drove there? Obviously that’s not a serious question, but just imagine with us for a second. Nissan has put together a little chart of what it would cost to drive to Mars in one of the popular mid-size sedans and of course – the Nissan Altima takes the crown.
Based on gasoline prices of $3,645 per gallon it would cost you about $33 million to drive the new 2013 Altima to Mars and around $37 million to drive a Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata or a Kia Optima.
Refresher: The 2013 Nissan Altima is available with a 2.5-liter QR25 4-cylinder engine producing 182-hp and a peak torque of 180 lb-ft. Buyers can also opt for the 3.5-liter V6 VQ35DE, which keeps its 270-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Prices start at $21,500.
