Auto show #10. Altima Hybrid.
The Hybrid uses a Toyota system. With Nissan’s own 2.5 Liter engine.
The interior is pretty much standard 2007 Altima stuff. Which means maybe the best in any affordable midsized family car available in the US.
None of the materials look or feel chap. It is all very well put together and pleasant to the eyes.
The fake wood has a matte finish (like the real stuff in Infinitis) and looks great.
And the interior door design looks classy, modern and simple.
the Hybrid version is supposed to be getting 41mpg.
Camry Hybrid owners routinely report getting and average of 37 to 38 mpg with their cars.
pretty amazing numbers for a car that size. (and close to official numbers)
These real life numbers aren’t that much lower than what Prius owners report.
I think the Altima Hybrid offers a better design, inside and out, that the Camry (a matter of taste really…).
On sale early next year. Price? Who knows…
I guess they would want it to be close to the Camry, or even a bit lower.
