The more I look at that thing the more it looks like a Camry to me. I dont like it at ALL. Look how big and goofy the body looks. Those wheels look tiny and odd.

2007 Altima

Look at the Pics on FreshAlloy, they are beautiful.
I Love the front end, now if they would only work
on the Max front end and ugly plastic grill.

Looks very G35. I kinda like it. We'll see. I'd like to check it out in person and drive it though! :-)

Looks like a michi plate... is that where this is? If so I didn't realize nissan had a major presence there... I worked at Ford several years back for a summer internship and saw nothing but domestic or domestoforeign (Chrysler, etc.)

I'd expect to see this in CA or TN or something....

they said it has a new designed motor and new 6-speed trans!! Its amazing it has the same hp numbers and 6-speed like the max! I honestly think they dropped in the max motor and trans. It looks better though.

i think the door handles are about the best look of this new body, the center consol is nice.

i think it's ok. to me, the spoiler is needed more on the 07 than it was on the 3rd gen. totally different car with the factory spoiler.

I think it looks pretty cool overall - but I don't like that T-shapped grille. And I agree, the trunk needs a spoiler of some sort to offset its roundness.

The interior is impressive (from the photos anyway). It looks to be of better quality than the current version. I would miss the "motorcycle-style" gauge pod that comes with the 05-06 models, but it still looks cool.

Also, someone was saying the parking brake is on the floor now? Hopefully just for the CVT and not for the 6-speed!

I used to think...

...that the 3rd gen looked better WITHOUT a spoiler...but now that opinion has changed for me.

...but I'll have to wait until I see the Altima in person before I decide if I like the 4th gen with or without the spoiler.

Here is a pic I took of the Nissan display screen at the ATL autoshow back in April. I had been wanting to post this pic, but never got around to it.



Later I'll try to update my post with side by side comparisons of the 3rd vs. 4th gens. The more I look at the 4th, the more I see a similar comparison to how the 2nd gen. derived from the first gen.

Cannot wait until Novemeber when they finally get here.

If it looks off beat to u know...IMAGINE what the car will look like when it gets the typical Nissan accessories (Splash guards, side sills, spoilers, sunroof visors, etc. etc.)

If you think about it, maybe some of us are being too harsh on this new Altima. Afterall, even today's 3rd gen Altima looks rather wierd without at least a set of splash guards or a set of side sills. Take for example a rental Altima...they don't have splash guards and look rather strange without them.

Imagine what this car will look like accesorized.

I can't wait!!
