#1 of 61 2010 Nissan Altima
Jan 28, 2009 (9:12 pm)
Anyone has any information (new features) about the 2010 Altima? The '10 camry will be out in about a month and I hope that Nissan will get the '10 Altima out around the same time.

don't expect much new. They might tweak the options packages, and maybe add different color choices,but that will probably be about it. the altima probably wont get its next redesign till about 2012.

Well, they made many changes for the '05. I think they might not need to make much change for the current Altima but I'm curious to see what they will change.
However, I hate to see they keep giving discounts to move the '09 while their competitors don't need to offer much when they have '10 cars in the lot early.

I guess it depends what you consider major. They arn't going to change the body design, or the engine, or trans or anything like that. the '05 weren't much different than the '04 or 06's. the altima didn't cange dramaticly till the '07 redesign.

Well, the '05 got a new dash, odometer, steering wheel, and a bunch of other stuffs.

I really don't feel that the Altima changed all the much anyway. It really doesn't look much different than the previous model. They just made it bigger. Heavier.

actually, they made it smaller. they added a new transmission (cvt) drastically upgraded the quality of the interior, and redesigned the body, mostly in the rear. they also redesigned the suspension to almost completely eliminate the dreaded torque steer of the previous gen.
on top of that you have the keyless entry and smart key systems, push button start, and a bunch of other options.

They did a massive overhaul for this generation. Outside the car, it doesn't look much different, but from the inside, this car is completely overhauled compared to the '02-'06 model Altima
I'm actually hoping they'll consider redesigning the interior center dash. They really need to make it more like the rest of the segment with a "command screen" that serves as the central information hub for HVAC and audio controls. Until they do this, they are behind the competition. I would love to see an interior control scheme that's similar to the '09 Maxima.
#9 of 61 But what about the fog lights
Feb 24, 2009 (5:40 pm)
What kills me with Nissan is the whole set up where fog lights are the hardest thing to get in their pricing. I don't want to spend an extra 10 grand to option in the lights and I don't want to blow the 900 they quote to add them. If they would remedy this one insult I might very well already be driving their car. As it stands I will wait patiently for the Fusion and hope it bests the Altima in a new drive off. I didn't love the Altima I test drove like I loved my Mazda 6 when I was shopping back in 03. Then it came down to the Passat and 6 and the 6 interior was way better at the time.

I agree with milkman, the way the options are set up are terrible. Most of them are all grouped together and if I want one thing msrp goes up thousands of dollars.
Also, I want stability control on my next car, right now you can only get it on the V6 (and can't get it on the Sentra or Versa either, get with the times Nissan!), I'm hoping they change that for 2010. Any idea when they'd come in?
