Again, I had a chance to drive the newer version of the Altima from a rental place. I was amazed on how fast this thing is on the freeway. The instant response of the motor was impressive and being automatic.
I do love the sleeker look of this Altima. I feel the headlights and tail lights flow much better with the body. The Maxima of the same year looks very close to this Altima.
This generation Altima is also the 3rd generation Nissan Teana. The previous generations of the Teana were not directly related or rebadged Altimas, they were their own line up.
The motors are the 2.5 and 3.5 V6 with the latter pushing 270 hp!!!
It is great to see different cars being raced. Here is a V8 Altima racing.
