The 2008 Nissan Altima is one of the most heralded and popular vehicles on the market today. It’s offered in four door Sedan or two door Coupe body styles in 2.5, 2.5 S, 3.5 SE and 3.5 SL trims. Engines range from a 175 horsepower 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder to a 270 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 with a 6-speed manual transmission as standard. The Altima features seating capacity for up to five and a decent list of standard equipment, including keyless entry, power controls, an adjustable steering wheel, front/side-body/side-head airbags and ABS brakes.Read more Read less
A new coupe body style--slightly smaller in size and lighter in weight, with unique styling inside and out--joins the Nissan Altima line for 2008. After being completely redesigned for the 2007 model year, the Altima sedan enters '08 with only a few equipment changes. Throughout the model line, anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution are now standard, a new diversity antenna is included, and XM satellite radio is now available.
Powerful engines; well-balanced ride and handling; unique interior; fuel economy (four-cylinder); stylish new coupe body style.
With styling that bears some resemblance to the much more expensive Infiniti G37 coupe, the new 2008 Nissan Altima coupe ranks as one of the most distinctive mid-size two doors, with a sportier character than competitors like the Toyota Solara and Chrysler Sebring. The Altima sedan also stands out in the crowd in terms of design, inside and out; it's offered in more color and interior combinations than is typical, its engines are among the most powerful in its class, and it has one of the best compromises of sharp handling and comfortable ride.
