The Japanese automaker Nissan has just revealed details about the 2010 Altima sedan - a model that receives more power, grows in size, benefits from new technology as well as new styling both inside and out. The 2010 Altima starts at $19,900 for the entry level 2.5 S version and goes up to $24,520 for the high end 3.5 SR model.
For 2010 the Nissan Altima’s exterior gets a restyled hood complete with power bulges, a more curvaceous front bumper and fresh metal on the bottom of the grill and on top of the license plate opening. The new car is available with either a set of fresh 16 inch or 17 inch aluminum-alloy wheels, standard Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) as well as revised interior fabrics and finishers. For those who are in the know, the old top of the line 3.5 SE has been renamed the 3.5 SR.
The 2010 Altima is offered with a choice of two gas burning engines; a 175 HP 2.5 Liter inline 4 cylinder and a 270 HP 3.5 Liter V6. Either way the Altima comes complete with all the latest Nissan technologies like: Nissan Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition, BluetoothHands-free Phone System with audio streaming, RearView Monitor and Nissan Navigation with XM NavTraffic and NavWeather Real-Time Traffic Information services to bring your morning commute into the 21st century at a reasonable price.
