Carlos Ghosn is the 51-year-old Brazilian in charge of reviving the fortunes of Nissan Motors since 1999. He has defied typical American business etiquette by shaking hands with every employee he meets. She skips the energetic breakfast by staying home and eating with her four children. He also believes that it is possible for people to fall in love with a car based on how it looks at first glance. Attractive design is not just a stylistic element; it is a vital component that encourages people to get into the car. So it comes as no surprise that the fourth generation 2007 Nissan Altima has distinctive styling, a new DVT transmission, and is available with a hybrid engine. All of this, while it boasts an MSRP of $ 17,250 – $ 29,350, makes it a viable competitor to the Honda Accord, Honda Civic, Toyota Prius, and Toyota Camry at launch.
Carlos Ghosn’s ideal of positioning Nissan as a rival to BMW is working. Minimalist lines are used wisely to give the car an aggressive and meditative style. Dual pleats in the hood highlight engine performance, triple-cluster headlamps make the front look clean and purposeful, integrated front and rear bumpers simplify the car’s minimalist appeal, and double-deck taillights are positioned higher. in the trunk, which gives it a performance because it feels. The ultimate goal is for the “sports-oriented” 2007 Altima to arouse more emotions than its predecessor.
You’ll forget that the 2007 Nissan Altima is a four-door family sedan once you get in the car. No matter where you sit, you will be amazed by the sculpted and supportive seats, motorcycle-inspired gauges, chrome accents, and a closed gear stick. The dash features a sporty three-pod instrument layout and a neat center console. (It’s important to note that the new Altima has 103 cubic feet of space; the trunk space is exemplary at 15.6 cubic feet.) There is ample room to transport four full-size adults comfortably around town. Additionally, the 2007 Altima has earned 5-star safety ratings for frontal impact protection. It would be nice if the manufacturer had included side impact airbags and traction control as standard equipment. We highly recommend that you consider adding them to further solidify the Altima’s position in side collisions.
Looking fresh when perfectly still, the 2007 Altima is powered by a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder with 175 horsepower in the base model. The slightly more expensive 3.5-liter inline six engine has 250 horsepower at 249 pound-feet of torque. For even greater performance, the SE-R is tuned to further push the envelope to 260 horsepower at 251 pound-feet of torque. In our tests, the Altima performed well with excellent handling and acceleration from the 2.5 out of line-four. The new transmission (DVT) is extremely quiet and improves driving in the optimal position. The downside was the cabin a bit noisy; the Altima lacks the excellent sound insulation found inside the 2007 Toyota Camry. However, the new suspension and wider tires give the car a stiffer ride with a more robust feel. For buyers looking for a smoother, quieter ride, consider the Camry. For buyers who want a louder sports car with amazing handling, consider the 2007 Nissan Altima.
When the Altima was first introduced in 1993, it was available in two versions and came with the option of a 150-horsepower engine. Currently, it is available in six versions and four engines, including the hybrid. Under the tutelage of former Renault boss Carlos Ghosn, Nissan has managed to restore the “driving spirit” to its cars. The 2007 Nissan Altima’s distinctive styling, reputation for dependability, luxurious interior, and high coefficient of conductivity predict future popularity. The new car has been vastly improved. By 2008, Nissan wants to move 4.2 million vehicles per year worldwide. The 2007 Nissan Altima will be a big part of that equation because it significantly challenges what we expect from the four-door sedan.
