(2005 model shown)


The roomy and stylish mid-size Altima sedan continues with few changes for 2006. It's powered in its base form by a 175-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, while an available 3.5-liter V-6 generates a quicker 250 horses. A five-speed manual is standard, and both four- and five-speed automatic transmissions are optional. The Altima rides on a four-wheel independent suspension for good ride and handling qualities; anti-lock brakes and traction control are optional. A sporty SE-R version includes the V-6 engine, a revised suspension, 18-inch wheels and tires and more aggressive styling cues, along with additional amenities. Available options include front-side airbags, leather upholstery, a power driver's seat, power sunroof, a Bose audio system, and either XM or Sirius satellite radio. A hybrid gas/electric-powered version will be added to the line later in 2006.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
