I wanted a hybrid and the Altima had the best combination of good looks and performance. With the incentives they were offering and the tax deduction they still qualify for it was too good to pass up. It has very nice exterior styling and the interior looks more expensive then it is, especially in the charcoal leather. The fuel economy is very good as long as you don't try to test the strong acceleration at every chance. It really drives and handles very well. Usually the transition to/from the ICE is smooth but sometimes there is some vibration. I do wish it would stay in EV mode more easily. You really need a light touch to keep it there.
EV Mode!, smart key, seat heat, auto dimming mirror with compass, upgraded radio with ipod integration, big glove compartment, great looks.
Stronger electric engine for EV mode at 45mph+ - how about highway coasting on EV. Economy driving mode to stay in EV mode with harder pedal press. Better and more concurrent display info without fully loading - like digital mpg reading, history, and energy flow. Window control on ACC setting
