Nissan just sent out pricing information on its 2008 Altima Sedan, which is already at Nissan dealers across the country. The best-selling car in Nissan's stable, the Altima was completely redesigned last year and receives only modest changes for '08. But that hasn't stopped the inevitable price hikes. But before you protest, understand that the price increases are quite modest ($280 on 4-cylinder models, $80 on the V6) and include some additional equipment. On SLs, the price actually dropped $120. The now-standard Anti-lock ABS alone used to be a $300 option. Pricing for the Coupe and Hybrid, however, weren't included in this release.
