2010 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Very satisfying combination of smooth ride and crisp handling. I'm tall and found that no other mid-size car was as easy to get in and out of - no need to duck your head getting in the Altima. Simple but attractive instrument panel has large, well lit, and easy to read gauges. I also appreciate the large easy to grip knobs on the radio and climate controls. Thanks, Nissan, for showing that chrome, when used tastefully, can add elegance to a car. The chromed grill louvers, window surrounds, and rear end embellishments really set off the stylish shape of the car.
Extra large glove box and other useful storage compartments. Good visibility. Keyless entry and start are really convenient. Standard safety features add to peace of mind.
Hood prop and goose neck trunk hinges shout "cheap" to me in a car with such a luxurious look and feel. As mentioned in other reviews, the option packages are really a rip-off. In order to get one or two options you would like, you have to pay thousands of dollars for packages with unwanted items.
