It has more horsepower- yet has much better gas mileage than it's predecessor. The 2.5-liter features 182 hp, (7 more than the last model.) Yet it's rated 27/38 mpg city/highway, a huge improvement over the 23/32 mpg of the previous model. (This is best-in-class.)
The new Altima is also lighter, thanks to greater application of ultra-high-strength steel and aluminum. So the power-to-weight ratio is much better, making it quicker off the line, and this ratio helps with better fuel economy.
The new Altima features:
* 182 hp 2.5 liter 4cyl engine
* 38 Highway MPG (Best in class)
* 17" Alloy wheels
* Zero Gravity seats (Influenced by NASA research for greater comfort.)
* Factory remote engine start
* Bluetooth hands-free phone
* Hands-free text messaging assistant
* Pandora radio ability
* In-dash backup camera
It also comes with the new Easy Fill Tire Alert. (When you put air in the tires, the parking lights flash, and when the tire pressure is correct, the horn beeps once. Pretty nifty.)
