Nissan's sporty sedan was redesigned last year with handsome styling inside and out and good overall performance, and thus continues for 2005 with only slight revisions. Its 265-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine drives the front wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission in the base version, and a choice of either the automatic or a close-ratio six-speed-manual gearbox in the SE model. If you choose the manual, you can also add Vehicle Dynamic Control for added surefootedness over a wide range of conditions. A Skyview sunroof comes standard and is essentially a narrow glass panel that runs lengthwise across its roof. (For those who find this slot-like sunroof unseemly, a standard moonroof is also offered.) Four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes, dual-zone air conditioning, a CD stereo, keyless entry, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, garage door opener, and alloy wheels with 18-inch tires are all standard. An Elite Package includes a fixed full-length center console and rear bucket seats that makes this a four- (rather than five-) passenger sedan.

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.
