Nissan's are great cars!

Glad I bought it!

2010 Nissan Altima Manwich - Chicago, IL 04/12/2011

Needed to change from SUV to a more gas economical vehicle. I have owned a Nissan previously and have been tremendously satisfied with the quality of their product. Researched based on MPG and price. Upon test driving my Ultima I knew it was the right car for my current needs. Great gas mileage, great comfort, lots of pep for a four cylinder. Have to get use to the four cylinder engine sound. Stylish. I will always recommend Nissan. Gas tank is suprisingly large, 17 gallons. MPG are good for city driving, which is the majority of my driving. Excellent value without all the extra perks.

2010 Nissan Altima Overview

The 2010 Nissan Altima received a facelift after its sleek, new redesign in 2007. With either of its engine options, the Altima is surprisingly quick and peppy while delivering class-leading fuel efficiency. The Altima is an excellent choice for those who appreciate crisp, responsive handling.

Features & Specs

The Nissan Altima offers a wide range of features. It comes with full set of power accessories, such as locks, windows and mirrors, as well as keyless entry and cruise control. Also included in the 2010 Altima are air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity and an audio system with CD player. Higher trims include improved sound systems, dual-zone climate control, power moonroof and voice-activated navigation system.

Design & Performance

The Altima is Nissan's midsize sedan with an expertly-tuned suspension and quick steering. It underwent a redesign for the 2007 model year, and the 2010 version emerged with a bit of a facelift that included aerodynamic angles to the body design. The Nissan Altima has four different trim options: the base 2.5, 2.5 S, 3.5 SE and 3.5 SL. The visible differences between each trim level lies only in tires, otherwise, upgrades lie in the interior.

Powertrain & Engine

Standard versions of the Altima are powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder engine. The 2010 Nissan Altima supports an upgrade to the 3.5L V6 engine under the hood, making it more powerful than its competitors. When the V6 is paired with the six-speed manual transmission, the car can feel sportier than expected. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is also an available option. No matter the transmission, the engines produce near-identical fuel economy.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

For the 2010 model year, the Nissan Altima was redesigned with a more angular front-end, a new hood and new headlights. It also received new wheels and interior materials. As a result, the 2010 Altima's cabin design and material quality have improved significantly. The vehicle is spacious and has controls that are integrated well into the 2010 Altima's array of features.
