2010 Nissan Altima Review

The Nissan Altima line of model vehicles was last revamped in 2007. More than 2 years later, a new design came out to attract the crowd and possibly push further for global dominance. Nissan, after all, pushes the most cars every year.
The 2010 Nissan Altima is undoubtedly sleeker. It's a bit lowered compared to the 2007 version. The sedan comes with 16" or 17" wheels while the coupe offers the 17" version only. The only misfire in the new model is the bulge in the rear. The new version could have lowered the rear a bit but for some reason, it's not.
Just like the previous Altima, engine power depends on user preferences. Would-be car owners can choose between the hybrid and the gasoline option. But in terms of performance to fuel efficiency ratio, the 2.5 liter version of the vehicle performs great in curves while fuel efficiency is rated at 30mpg.
While there are some misfires in the outside, the interior design is just stunning. Non-slippery leather seats, a load of multi-media options (including XM Satellite) and just enough positioning of the shifter make the driving experience relatively better.
The deal maker of the vehicle is the price. The base price is merely $20,000 but would-be car owners should out a bit and go for the upgraded version for $30,000. But the price can still vary for users who wanted technology instead of power as they can go for the most affordable version and upgrade to complete multi-media features in the 2010 Nissan Altima.


Nissan squeezes adequate power from the engine, but the real magic comes from the continuously variable transmission (CVT).
