Autoblog tipster Arnold K. sent us this picture of the all-new 2007 Nissan Altima, which will debut Wednesday in New York. (I wonder if Arnold K. is a pseudonym for Carlos G?)

The new Altima rides on Nissan's new "D" platform and a redesigned suspension. It is rumored to be available with an optional CVT transmission.

      Like the looks, but don't care for Nissan interiors and bad ergonomics. (Yeah, I'm talking about the old Altima on that last one.)

      If the Renault Altima is so much better looking than the Toyota Camry, why isn't it selling better than the Camry? If you want to say the Ford 6 is better looking than the Toyota Camry then I'll accept that, but not the Renault Altima.

      Why do you dweebs keep commenting on the handling of a car that is changing its entire body/suspension platform? That's like pretending to know how a new 911 handles based on only having driven a 1989 model.

      The new B-platform is supposed to be entirely different. And the interior materials are supposed to be a big jump from the previous models. I plan to drive one when they're available because I've heard it kicks butt.

      I have driven the new Camry as well as the old ones. All I can say is the new one is quieter and feels solid, but the handling is "Buick-like." I have not driven the newest Accord. I like Accords in general, but the styling isn't as nice as the older ones. I'm excited about this Altima's looks, and the handling is improving significantly from what I've read.

      Looks like they're getting styling cues from the Buick design team.

      The altima isn't the best seller because it's just plain ugly esp. from the back! The camry looks 100 times better!

      And they're going to sell that new Maxima how?

      The G35 also better be stepping up, though the rear-drive chassis earns major bonus points.

      Much, much, MUCH better than the current bulky, undefined, ugly, and blobtastic Altima.

      They ought to cut the crap and just sell it as a Maxima though. I think Nissans have grown more than any other cars. Current Maxima is the size of an older SUV, current Sentra is bigger than older Altimas.

      That's it? Hardly a change. Nissan will still be behind Accord & Camry.

      Dropdead Gorgeous!!!!Talking about sexy, Camry and Accord will stay behind! I have a '94 Altima and I can't wait to put my hands on this hunk of metal!

      That car is just as ugly as the current Altima

      I think the Camry looks better. When you look at the current Altima, it just looks bad, even though a few years ago it looked amazing. Whereas the Camry, wasn't amazing at the beginning, and still isn't, but it hasn't gotten worse. This is why blander designs are better for the long-term, especially in mass market cars.
