In today’s world of fast-paced wheelings and dealings on the Internet, classified photos have become easier and easier to get leaked out to the public.

That was the case with Nissan’s 2010 Altima. Although the Japanese-based brand released a simple teaser photo a couple of days ago, that didn’t stop people from digging up photos of the car in its entirety.
And now – barely a few days after the teaser photo was released – a full-blown photo of the car has been revealed.

So much for teasers, huh?

The scooped up photos of the Altima has laid to rest any debate as to what it was going to look like, especially after the teaser photos didn’t do much to stir up our imaginations.

The Altima’s front grille has been completely redesigned while the headlights have undergone some revisions as well. In addition to that, the car’s bumper also looks a tad different from its predecessors, including those three new air-intakes. Lastly – and we can imagine that Nissan did this to make the car look sleeker – the car’s alloy wheels have also been redesigned.

Despite being prematurely beaten to the punch by scavengers of the World Wide Web, Nissan is still expected to release further details on the new Altima in the coming days, including potential sedan and coupe variants of the car.

i agree on that

I was just going along Uncia’s line of thinking. Of course Toyota has some great cars, their reliability and off road performance is unparalled.

But the opposite of what Uncia says is true. Once you drive a Nissan to almost any comparable Toyota, chances are, if you have the smallest bit of driving enthusiast in you, you won’t want to look at the Toyota again. Most critics have said Infinitis are the only ones that can compete with BMW in terms of driving experience.

By the way, I used to own a Supra before my R33.

IS-F? Supra?

agreed, Toyota trucks and suvs are superior

ak your forgetting the Tundra, Seqoiu... , 4runner ,FJ all those are manly cars and most are superior to the nissans although the murano is really nice

I would buy any Nissan I please because they still put out better performance, without having to buy luxury performance. Maxima>Avalon, Altima>Camry, GTR>LF-L, 370z>toyota doesnt have anything to compare it to. Ill give toyota one thing, and that is reliability on Nissan. Ive seen more real men drive maxima’s then avalons, sorry. I will say that I do like Lexus more than Infiniti though.

Once you’ve bought a Toyota, you will never be a man a again.

Once you’ve owned several Nissans as well as a Honda and a Toyota you’ll never buy Nissan again.

Thank you AK47, compared to other manufacturers, Nissan puts out the best line of cars including sport cars, powerful sedans, fuel efficient sedans, and coupes, as well as SUV’s and trucks. Nissan quality is amazing as well, being that I work for Nissan, I know that

The Altima is a far better drivers car than any Toyota save the IS-F. It is the only car in its segment that offers sporty handling. Mazda and Subaru qulity aren’t worth anything.

Nissan is the only company putting sporstcars in the market. Honda has discontinued the S2000, Mazda is pulling the plug on the RX8 and Toyota doesn’t even have a sportscar.

Plus Nissan makes better looking car than any other company out there.

I know the other facts might be better, im just stating that the facts you made were untrue, save the mpg. I also respect the line of cars nissan puts out more than other manufacturers as well

Uncia  (868) posted on 09.24.2009

The Altima may have two more horsepower, but the Camry has a fatter torque curve and it hits sixty in 5.9 sec while the Altima takes 6.2.

Naterade22  (238) posted on 09.23.2009

And BTW, a base model Altima has 175 hp, while a base Camry has 169 hp, both with the 2.5 4 cylinder. Also, the 3.5 V6 Altima is producing 270 hp, while the 3.5 V6 Camry is producing 268 hp. The fuel economy only differs by the Altima’s 23/31 to the Camry’s 22/33, so the difference is really not noticeable. I’m not saying the Altima is a better car, and I know Toyota is the most reliable company out there, I’m just stating some of the facts.

but they are still selling them a lot, even though they are not the top choice, they still are very popular. Sorry that nothing can top Toyota, I am aware of that, I have enough respect for Nissan because they still make sports cars. I lost respect for Toyota in the sports car business after they stopped the Supra. The LF-L is their first step forward since.

Uncia  (868) posted on 09.23.2009

Reliable and respectable? I have no respect for this car or Nissan in general save the GT-R. The Toyota Camry is faster, more fuel-efficient, more economical, more practical, much more comfortable and more reliable by a longshot. Nissan’s quality tests are equivelent to 300,000 miles - Toyota’s Honda’s, Mazda’s and Subaru’s are equal to 1,000,000 miles.

Altima always proves itself as a very reliable respectable car in today’s market, meeting the demands of the average car consumer. Like the alloy wheel addition.
