About Altima

The 1998 Altima by Nissan entered the year with a brand new design that included a new interior and exterior style, lots more standard equipment (including a CD player in all trims but the XE), and a reinvented identity. Two new body colors and trim shuffling were all that changed for 1999, following the design makeover the previous year. A newly designed front and rear with a smoother suspension and upgraded engine complemented the 2000 Altima. While nothing major was changed for 2001, a brand new model was released for 2002.

It offered a sleeker and more curvaceous body, an optional V6 engine that was rated at 240 horsepower, and brand new independent four-wheel suspension alongside various technology upgrades. No changes were in store for 2003 or 2004, with exception to lowered emission levels and a few new body colors. The 2005 Altima brandished a new exterior style complete with smoked headlamps, new taillights and new wheels. A bit of oomph was added to the engine, offering five more horsepower with some upgrades made to the trim levels and options.

The Altima would see no changes for 2006 but the 2007 Altima included a more powerful V6 engine that could make 270 horsepower with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and a roomier and upgraded cabin. 2008 and 2009 marked subtle changes, namely the addition of the Altima Coupe to the lineup. A new front fascia and standard stability control was offered for 2010, along with a new sound system and revised GPS system as well as added Bluetooth and iPod integration. 2011 and 2012 saw nothing major changed, but in 2013 an all-new and sleeker model was introduced, offering improved fuel economy, higher quality materials, a new suspension system and better steering. For 2014, the Altima Coupe was discontinued with nominal changes being made following the release of an all-new model the year prior.
