Honestly, I am surprised to see everything they are offering.

Then Again, my Altima will be the last Nissan vehicle I own.

I absolutely hate how the front looks. They should have gave it more of an aggressive look.

Have to agree, the list of standard and optional equipment is very extensive. I do appreciate the fact I can get all these options without having to purchase a base 40K car then add options.

Why are you done with Nissan? issues with quality or service?

I will be at the Auto Show next week probably Monday and post my review. I just hope they have at least 1 model open for the public to sit in and play with the new gadgets.

I assume because there is no manual 6-speed option, as groaned by some folks here. Whatever, it's their choice and opinions. Although I'm disappointed that there is no manual option, but I guess the next best thing being the paddle shifters seen in there are as close as we can get to a manual in a sedan. Probably we'll see the manuals in the next Altima coupe, if they're making a new one.

It's definitely a step up from the 4th gen, especially with the implied SL model in those photos, with the interior. Although I'm beginning to see a certain "beige" in this new Altima, and no, it's not because of the interior either. :P

The gas mileage is a huge improvement as well, and I'm glad they're keeping the VQ35DE engine. Very interesting how they're finally stepping up the power of the QR engine, with an estimated 182 HP.

I wonder if they're going to have Nismo parts with the 5th gen.

You guys are a trip. You want a G37 for the price of an Altima! Everything you guys are whinning about pretty much describes the G37. Looks are subjective, so I'm not even speaking on that. But it was MORE THAN obvious that this car would be CVT only, as it is now. Why would that change. Its obviously working since they sold 41,000 Altimas last month. SOMEBODY likes the CVT. For perspective, Toyota sold 42,000 Camrys.

Anyway, I think its going to be competitive in its class and will maintain its spot in the range of #1-3 in this class. May not be as stylish as the Fusion, but I think overall its a good looking car and does look a "Class above" as Nissan put it. And I don't think the Fusions design is going to age well, once you look past all the flashiness, the car just looks SUPER long, and the grille kind of makes it look like a guppy fish up front. But overall, its a good car too. You really can't go wrong in this class.

I will agree, the interior is nice, but it is a bit bland and maybe a bit Buicky. But at the end of the day as long as its High Quality, I could careless as long as it's not ugly and cheap.

And I actually think we will see mostly 2.5S and 2.5SV's roaming the roads. The base 2.5 is pretty much to advertise the low entry price. Good luck finding one on the lots. They didn't even list its standard features in the press release! LOL. The 2.5SV comes with 17" Alloys, so there probably wont be as many hub-caps rolling around. And the additional 3.5 models should increase the amount of those on the roads too, which all come standard with the 18's pictured above. Overall, I think its going to be a good mix versus all the saggy butt hub-capped 2.5S's running around now. Overall, I think the 2.5SV will be the sales leader in the long run.

Nah. I dont even know how to drive a manual. Im just not impressed by Japanese Cars these days anymore. Im more of a Euro guy anyway. Plus the CVT was...interesting.

I got to say though, that when these cars do hit the showroom floor that I will test drive one to see what it is like. I want to know how they improved the CVT and other things.

I am more than impressed that Nissan is taking a step forward in offering all of these options for $30K, thats quite impressive. Its a good way forward as well.

I agree with you. I prefer my 4th gen interior over this by a long shot. This one looks like my dad buick.

Fair enough. I'll probably do the same thing just to see how much (or not) did the car improved compared to the now outgoing model.

At least they're evolving their cars, rather than taking a relatively more conservative approach. *cough*thenewMalibu*cough*

Also, standard 18" wheels on all 3.5 models, which is good, and 17" for any of the 2.5 models. I assume the 16" is for the base 2.5 and/or 2.5 S models.

Not surprised and not impressed. Gone are the days when Nissan was actually innovative and brought curious car shoppers into the show rooms. I visited one the other day when I was in the market for a new car. The 2012 Altima looked and felt the same as my 2003 model. Almost 10 years and they didn't do squat but just milk and tried to duplicate their success with minimal investment.

Speaking of the dealer, it was so run down I was ashamed. I guess it explains why I am cruising in a 2012 Subaru Legacy instead of a Nissan.

We'll see. There are far too many threads on this board complaining about the EPA estimates being unattainable.
