2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 2dr Coupe (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Power-Band is that of the 350Z. The 2.5 is smooth and has power throughout each gear. Granted, it doesn't have the horsepower of the 3.5, but it makes up for that in MPG. 175hp is plenty while city driving, and it performs excellent on the interstate. The styling speaks for itself, as it is a great looking coupe. Not very many cars today are in its class. Very well priced for what you receive.
The exterior looks like a G35 & 350Z had a child. It has charateristics of both cars. The interior layout is very thoughtout. The gauges are an excellent addition to its' style. The 2.5 is a smooth powerplant which seems limitless. Will it have a turbo in the future models?
Add a turbo to the 2.5 model so not to increase price too much, but still give it some more power. It most likely would be faster than the VQ35DE.
