ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION
2008 Nissan Altima

by Marty Padgett

A new Altima bowed for 2007 with a sleek new body that rides on a wheelbase one inch shorter than the previous version. Underneath the hood, the Altima sports a 270-horsepower version of Nissan's well-regarded 3.5-liter DOHC V-6, making this generation the most powerful Altima ever. And the big V-6 can also be paired with a six-speed manual transmission, unlike the ritzier Maxima sedan, which shares the same running gear but comes only with a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

Standard versions of the Altima are powered, as before, by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 175 horsepower (2007 power ratings: Nissan has not yet released 2008 figures). This engine may also be teamed with the six-speed manual gearbox, or you can choose the Xtronic CVT. All model levels get front, side, and curtain airbags and standard anti-lock brakes.

This year, the Altima offers up standard Intelligent Key with Push Start Ignition. Bluetooth is an option, along with a rearview monitor and a navigation system. Splash guards are now standard, along with a new antenna, while factory-installed XM satellite radio is an option.
