2006 Altima Overview

The Nissan Altima is a roomy, comfortable, practical mid-size sedan.But while the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry aim squarely at the mainstream buyer, the Altima boasts lots of power, sporty handling and expressive styling.It's designed to please fewer people, but to please those few more intensely.

In this respect the Altima reminds us more of Mazda's mid-size sedan, the Mazda6.Both offer stand-out styling; both surrender some refinement for gains in handling response.In other ways, however, they are diametric opposites: The lean and wiry Mazda is the smallest car in this class, powered by a choice of high-winding engines; while the muscular Nissan tops the class in both horsepower and wheelbase and is one of the roomiest cars in the class.

The Altima delivers stunning acceleration when ordered with its 250-horsepower V6, essentially the same engine used in the Nissan 350Z and Maxima.Punch it in any gear and it takes off, with nimble handling and brakes to match its thrust.The high-performance Altima SE-R adds 10 more horsepower and even more sports appeal.And for its part, the Altima's standard four-cylinder engine is more powerful than comparable engines in the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Mazda6 or Mitsubishi Galant.So no matter which model you buy, you get a more powerful car with the Altima.

Altima also boasts a bigger interior than Camry and Accord.Altima's interior was redesigned for 2005, which resulted in an improved cabin.Altima also received some mild styling enhancements and a slight boost to its V6 for 2005.For 2006, Nissan has added four new option packages, and the optional satellite radio receiver is now factory-installed.
