Dynamic Simplicity Imbibed in New Altima
Nissan has finally set forth a striking Altima with a revolutionary platform and evolutionary design that spell dynamic simplicity.
"Altima is 100% original and 100% Nissan, rather than a copy of existing mid-size sedan offerings," said Brad Bradshaw, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division. "In creating this next generation Altima, we didn’t take for granted the things it already did well. We refined or enhanced all areas – exterior, interior and under the skin."
The upcoming Altima will be equipped with improved parts Nissan including revised engine versions. This car model, which belongs to the fourth generation, will incorporate the VQ35DE 3.5 L V6 engine that produces 270 horsepower, and the QR25DE 2.5 L I4 that generates 175 horsepower.
Altima will also sport groundbreaking innovations like Push-button start, advanced navigation system, advanced Xtronic CVT, parking camera and Bluetooth capability for cell phones. The redesigned version of the car appears to have several Toyota Camry parts. As a fact, Altima's wheelbase has close resemblance to that of Camry's.
"We understand that mid-size sedan buyers are looking for more from their vehicles than transportation – they seek a higher sense of self reward, along with a quality feel, enhanced comfort and a wide range of convenience features," added Bradshaw. "The new 2007 Altima builds on these strengths, protecting Altima’s hard-fought standing as the sedan of choice for discerning, enthusiast buyers. And now, as a true competitor rather than just an alternative, we predict Altima will find an even wider audience."
Bradshaw concluded, "The new 2007 Altima is one of the first vehicles in class to offer such a high level of features, such as the available Intelligent Key and RearView Monitor, touch-screen navigation with voice recognition and dual-zone automatic temperature control. With distinctive styling, dynamic performance, high quality roomy interior and great features, the new Altima raises the standard in the segment once again. In a sea of sameness, Altima engages the senses and stirs the soul."
The new Altima exudes an entirely unique, distinctive and exotic car appeal design and quality-wise. As Bradshaw put it, "It’s quiet, comfortable and rewarding."
