With the 2010 Nissan Altima coupe getting an impromptu full frontal reveal during a recent marketing photoshoot, Nissan has released a single teaser of its redesigned mid-size sedan to keep interest on boil.
Although the awkwardly cropped image doesn't show the reworked grille found on the recently tweaked Versa and Sentra, we do get a clear view of the revised headlamps and more sculpted, organic creases running along the doors. However, the L-shaped headlamps fitted to the Maxima and 370Z are MIA, an odd omission considering Nissan's recent push for familial cohesion.

According to an internal document we've received from a tipster, the 2010 Altima Coupe will receive a few key feature upgrades, beginning with the 2.5 S M6 (six-speed manual) model which will include Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), Traction Control System (TCS), a manually adjustable lumber support for the driver's seat and 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in P215/55 all-season rubber.

The 2.5 Premium IS 2.5 CVT Plus (whew!) will receive a 4.3-inch color display, along with an iPod interface and USB input capability, while the 3.5 SR M6 IS and 2.5 S M6 with the Premium Package will be fitted with Xenon HID headlamps. Joining the Tech Package's 6.5-inch screen and HDD navigation system is a 9.3 gig "Music Server" system with DVD playback, Bluetooth streaming audio and a new audio/video jack that replaces the standard auxiliary audio input. Expect all the official information to be released in the coming weeks, with the 2010 Nissan Altima coupe and sedan going on sale before November. Thanks for the tip Mehdi.

      I saw this whole car on the street in Vancouver -- they were shooting a commercial for it a block away from my house -- and the model badge definitely said "3.5SR". (They also shot one of the first Nissan Rogue commercials in almost the same spot a few years back; they had the street covered in snow even though it was August, and the Civic Hybrid commercial was shot just up the street too.)

      I should have snapped a pic, but honestly, it didn't look vastly different from the current model, so it didn't even hit me it was redesigned, until I saw the same car with camo on the hood later in the day.

      The Altima and the Maxima seem to overlap a bit.

      If this picture is the four door, was does it look better than the two door from the commercial shoot; http://carscoop.blogspot.com/2009/08/2010-nissan-altima-facelift-spied-at.html....The silver front dam looks more like they tried to put Maxima lines near the fogs, but the red spy shot looks like a Sentra with square air dams???

      FINALLY! A LOWER AIR DAM!

      Until Nissan figures out that CVT is a total loss in the marketing department, regardless of how cool it is in engineering, the models they equip with it are a complete no-go. A pity, since the new Maxima had a lot to like about it...but you can't be a 4DSC with a CVT instead of a manual transmission.

      enough is enough with this car and design. it is time that build something much more cooler and out of the ordinary instead of a boring family car.

      Just bought the Altima, fully loaded with Tech - it does not have a dvd player nor does it play dvds in the nav. So far all they tell me is yes it says DVD capablity it will not play DVD's. This is what the official word is. Now Nissan won't return my calls. What is DVD playback? Can anyone help?

      I like the altima much much more than the Camry, it looks a bit sporty, especially when its against bars of soap like the Camry.

      If this picture is the four door, why do the lines look cleaner near the fogs than the two door from the commercial shoot; http://carscoop.blogspot.com/2009/08/2010-nissan-altima-facelift-spied-at.html....The silver teaser front looks more like they tried to put Maxima lines near the fogs, but the red spy shot looks like a Sentra with square air dams???

      They need to bring this to Australia/New Zealand. Ever since the horrendous looking Primera was taken off the market, nissan is lacking a good midsize sedan. There is the tiny and ugly Nissan Tiida sedan and then you upgrade straight to a Maxima V6.

      Nissan needs a competitor to Camry, Mondeo, Accord Euro, Mazda 6 etc. in this part of the world.

      This is unrelated, but speaking of Nissan facelifts, check out the insideline long term blog. There are fresh pics of the m56 and the facelifted g37 sedan.
