The Nissan Altima Hybrid joined the Nissan lineup in 2007 and yet, it continues to combine the efficiency and fuel economy with the performance and excitement of any Altima. The 2009 model of the Japanese vehicle comes with a standard auto door-lock functions as well as four new exterior color choices: Red Brick, Navy Blue, Sonoran Sand and Mystic Jade.
In order to protect the environment the new vehicle offers systems like Xtronic CVTä (Continuously Variable Transmission) and is rated as as Advanced Technology-Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV) which emits almost no evaporative emissions. According to the manufacturer, the power of the Hybrid system is rated at 198 hp and due to the technology used in building it, the system doesn’t need to be plugged in to maintain a sufficient store of electric energy.
Altima Hybrid comes with an impressive list of available features like including leather-appointed seating, Bluetoothâ Hands-free Phone System, RearView Monitor, XM® Satellite Radio (XM® subscription required, sold separately) and Nissan’s Advanced Navigation System with real-time Energy Flow Display.
