April 25th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

With the introduction of the new Nissan Altima 2011 model, one would expect that there are some new features that are incorporated for performance and style. However, you can also expect some of the standard features that the Nissan Sentra automotive series has introduced into the market.

About Nissan Altima 2011 and specs

The 2011 Nissan Altima is a lot similar to the 2010 edition but when it comes to styling, expect it to be totally different and more options will be available for your varying taste for automotives. You can now choose between the four door sedan or a two-door coupe, whatever suits you.

When it comes to performance, there are three choices of engines available for Nissan Altima 2011. You can opt for the base model that runs via 175 horsepower and equipped with 2.5 liter, four cylinder engine. However, you can get a hybrid model that comes with up to 198 horsepower and four cylinder, 2.5 liter engine for greater performance.

For a midsized car, the 2011 Nissan Altima absolutely performs better with its use of gas powered engine and up to six-speed manual transmission. To ensure the safety of its riders and passengers, you can expect all the main safety features to be available here including antilock brakes, traction control, and antiskid control. A voice recognition feature has been equipped into the navigation system for increased efficiency. As of now, a few additional entertainment features have already been confirmed for this car model such as connectivity for mp3 players and iPods, among other musical devices so you can listen to your favorite hits while on the road and help improve your overall riding experience.

While Nissan refuses to specify the pricing details for 2011 Nissan Altima model, industry experts have released estimates judging from the pricing patterns for the previous models released. Hence, those interested in picking this model up can shell out $21,000 for the base model, while the 3.5 hybrid model could go up in price, costing up to $28,000 in price tag. However, this price range remains to be one of the most affordable among the selection for midsized cars in the market.

Pros

Fuel efficiency is very impressive for this vehicle, which makes it highly competitive against other vehicles within the same class.

There are two models available to choose from, depending on performance and styling: the base model and the hybrid model.

There are several warranties available for the 2011 Nissan Altima model, such as 36,000 mile basic warranty, 5-year unlimited mileage warranty, and 60,000 mile powertrain warranty, to name a few.

Cons

  • Those looking for significant changes with the 2011 model of Nissan Altima might be disappointed to find out that there aren’t any stands out improvements from the 2010 model. Hence, it might be difficult to rationalize buying this if you already own the previous model, or if you are looking for something new.

The Bottom Line

While there are no features about the Nissan Altima 2011 that can “wow” the consumers, it has certainly delivered up to expectations, especially focusing on functional features. There is really nothing you can complain about that knowing that it is one of the most affordable ones you can find in the market today.
