2008 Nissan Altima testing in UAE
The new-generation Nissan Altima has been out in the United States for many months now, but we in the GCC still get the old model. However one of our readers, Muhammad Talha, managed to snag a few photos of the 2008 Altima undergoing hot-weather testing near the Fujairah mountains in our very own United Arab Emirates.
Along with its distinctive styling, the new fourth generation 2008 Altima utilizes the all-new Nissan â€œDâ€ platform with improved body rigidity and a redesigned suspension, while retaining a front-wheel drive setup.
The new Altima sedan also offers eiter a six-speed manual or an Xtronic CVT automatic, a choice of a 270 hp 3.5-litre V6 or a 175 hp 2.5-litre inline 4-cylinder engine, and a long list of features, including available Intelligent Key with Push Start Ignition, Bluetooth Hands-Free Phone System, RearView Monitor and an advanced touch-screen navigation system.
In the United States, where the Altima sedan is built, a coupe version is also offered, but we doubt it will come here.
We expect the car to come to the region before the start of the winter season.
very hot car and better looking than previous one. 🙂
Altima 3.5 should be rear wheel Drive and new shapes interior is Awsommmmmm 🙂
The interior is better no doubt, but I like the current shape more.
