Overview

The Nissan Altima is the sportiest of the mid-size sedans. For 2005. Nissan has redesigned the interior, addressing the biggest caveat with this car. In addition to its new interior, the 2005 Nissan Altima gets some mild styling enhancements and a slight boost to its powerful V6, already one of the best V6 engines on the market. A new high-performance Altima SE-R adds even more sports appeal. The Nissan Altima boasts a bigger interior than the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and most other mid-size sedans. The new interior is nicer and more convenient than last year's interior. When ordered with its 250-horsepower V6, the Nissan Altima is one of the hottest cars in its class. It delivers stunning acceleration. Punch it in any gear and it takes off, with nimble handling and brakes to match all the thrust. For its part, the standard four-cylinder engine is more powerful than comparable engines in the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. The Altima earned the North American Car of the Year award when it was redesigned for 2002, and it remains Nissan's best selling vehicle.
