2010 Nissan Altima Coupe

The 2010 Nissan Altima hybrid, which goes on sale this coming Monday, will have an MSRP of $26,780. This is the fourth generation Altima, and apart from the hybrid drivetrain, it is only slightly tweaked from last year’s model. Speaking of drivetrains, the 2010 Altima will use a 2.5 liter four-cylinder with and electronically-controlled CVT tranny that cranks out 198 hp. Nissan says the new Altima hybrid will get an estimated EPA rating of 35 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.

Curiously, these figures aren’t all that much different form the 2009 model. Although the 09 also had a 2.5 liter inline four engine, it only put out 158 HP, and the fuel economy numbers of 35/33 city/hwy mpg were identical.


The new Altima Hybrid will get a bump up to $26,780 versus the old price of $26,650. That slight rise is being attributed to the new Nissan’s Hard Drive Navigation System which has a 6.5-inch VGA color, touch-screen display and a host of audio system upgrades.

On the outside, the 2010 Altima looks slightly different than the 2009 version with a restyled hood, grille and front bumper. The 2010 also gets new wheels and a new selection of interior fabric and finishes.

The Altima, which is Nissan’s best-selling nameplate, was ranked number one in segment in the 2009 J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study. It will be available in three distinct models: Altima Sedan, Altima Coupe and Altima Hybrid.

The full price breakdowns by engine/tranny combo look like this:

2010 Altima Sedan
2.5 S 2.5L I4 CVT $19,900 USD
2.5 S 2.5L I4 CVT $21,840 USD
3.5 SR 3.5L V6 CVT $24,520 USD

2010 Altima Coupe
2.5 S 2.5L I4 6MT $22,440 USD
2.5 S 2.5L I4 CVT $22,940 USD
3.5 SR 3.5L V6 CVT $27,270 USD
Altima Coupe 3.5 SR 3.5L V6 6MT $29,600 USD

2010 Altima Hybrid
2.5L I4 eCVT $26,780 USD

Looks like a good, solid transportation choice – which is just what Nissan is banking on.

    I think the Nissan Altima Hybrid is still a good selection you can compare the hybrid Fusion. On the one hand, good fuel economy not only to do with winning 30 or 40 miles per gallon, but also with the duration of its range is the size of gas tank. The merger can win 39 mpg, but with a small gas tank only 17 gallons. The Altima hybrid, even though they earn an average of 41 miles per gallon made with 34 mpg, but with a 20 gallon tank, can reach a distance greater than the Merger. Therefore, even if it can be the hybrid more miles per gallon, but the Altima has the largest repository of all medium-sized cars capable of reaching greater distances than any other. In addition, the Altima Hybrid was not in competition or be on par with the Altima 3.5 SE SR or the Toyota Camry, but especially for those who want a hybrid that can last longer. In addition, due to lower sales of the Fusion and Camry Hybrid.

    Nissan also doesn’t limit the cabin tech available in the Altima Coupe, making available its full hard-drive-based system with traffic reporting and onboard music storage.
