The 2010 Nissan Altima is available as a practical midsize sedan or sporty coupe and offers two powertrain options, both with standard front-wheel drive. A 2.5L four-cylinder with 175 hp pairs to a six-speed manual transmission (coupe models) or an Xtronic CVT® (continuously variable transmission) with manual mode on coupe or sedan models. For more power, the SR trim features a 270-hp 3.5L V6. However, if you prioritize gas mileage for commuting or road trips, the 2.5L four-cylinder is a natural choice, returning an EPA-estimated 23 mpg city and 32 mpg highway when equipped with the CVT.
The 2010 Nissan Altima has a capable chassis for an enjoyable on-road experience. Four-cylinder versions feature a comfort-focused suspension that makes for a softer, cushioned ride, while the athletic V6 comes standard with a sport-tuned suspension. This elevates the Altima from a practical family sedan into a sporty midsize model that will leave you grinning while you lean into turns and hug corners.
If you're looking for a midsize family sedan or coupe with racy looks, the 2010 Nissan Altima fits the bill. Both body styles feature a sporty silhouette with sharp lines that give the vehicle an aggressive edge. The sedan also boasts a sophisticated grille with a rich headlamp treatment, while the coupe has large fenders and headlights that add to the Altima's muscular stance.
You'll enjoy long road trips and many miles of commuting in the 2010 Nissan Altima. This midsize version has all the ingredients of a comfortable ride, including a six-way manual driver seat in 2.5 and 2.5 S models and an eight-way power driver seat in the 3.5 SR. With 35.8 inches of rear-seat legroom in sedan body styles, your passengers will have space to stretch out. Air conditioning is also standard on all trims, and the velour cloth seating trim feels soft to the touch.
The 2010 Nissan Altima comes well-equipped with several features that will add to your on-road convenience. All trims include power windows and door locks and remote keyless entry with trunk release, which makes loading up groceries and kids completely effortless. On long drives, you'll appreciate cruise control with steering-wheel-mounted controls and vehicle-speed-sensitive wipers when bad weather strikes. 60/40 split fold-down rear seatbacks also make it easy to customize the interior to suit your cargo.
