2010 Nissan Altima Teaser Photo, Reviews and Specification

It will be interesting to see the ending result... the little you can see from the hood and the side profile looks to resemble the lines of the Maxima, meaning a bigger and wider model...?First off, the new headlamps show a little of the Altima's revised face. But they are not the same as those found in the Maxima and 370Z models, telling us that Nissan is obviously forgoing any strict adherence to a design paradigm for its lineup. And we don't get to see the grill, which perhaps the Altima will share with its Versa and Sentra siblings. Or maybe it won't.
Autoblog is also reporting that the 2010 Altima Coupe variant will also be receiving a few added technical goodies. Those include Vehicle Dynamic Control and a Traction Control System for the 2.5 S M6 Altima. Also in the cards for the Altima model (depending on drivetrain variants and options packages) are a 4.3-inch color screen with iPod connectivity, Xenon-HID headlights, Bluetooth streaming audio, 9-gig music server, DVD playback and a HDD navigation system.The outgoing Altima is one of the blandest cars on the road, unfortunately I don't think there's much they can do to spur this platform into any form of competitive sexy/sporty.The Nissan Altima provides the kind of style and performance one would have expected years ago from its now-big brother, the Maxima sedan. In recent years, strong styling has been one of Nissan's characteristics, and the Altima's svelte sheet metal continues this trend. The Altima impresses under the hood as well, with zesty acceleration from the base 2.5-liter engine and downright prodigious thrust from the optional 3.5-liter V6. (A limited-production four-cylinder hybrid model with Toyota-sourced technology is also available in some states.) Transmission choices are a six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The latter is one of the best examples of its breed; the former, however, is to be avoided unless you absolutely must shift your own gears, as its rubbery feel and remarkably imprecise throws are only fit for the most automatic-averse consumers.
