Yup. It's That Good.

2007 Nissan Altima Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


We've had our hybrid for about a month now. It is a very well-designed, comfortable car. We get exactly the EPA estimates on the freeway (36 MPG) but around town we're only in the low 30s. The dealer tells us this will get better as the engine breaks in (we HAVE noticed a slight increase). We have the full package with nav, XM, and all the right stuff. The owner's manuals stack up to over an inch thick (not exaggerating). Lots of things to play with! Everything is designed with typical Japanese attention to detail. I'm 6'1" and fit in both front and back seats with no problems at all. The new body is very rigid and quiet, and attracts a lot of looks from other drivers.

Best Features

It actually PERFORMS! The keyless ignition, the steering-wheel mounted controls, the moonroof that ADDS headroom instead of removing it. Lots of storage in the passenger cabin. Controls are simple and intuitive. It looks GOOOOOD!!! Mileage is much better than a standard Altima. Body is quiet!

Worst Features

The trunk is SMALL (due to the hybrid battery). The "automatic" rear view mirror dimmer doesn't work very well. A backup "beeper" since the car is absolutely silent in EV mode. More adjustability on the Bose stereo (it's biased toward bass).
