Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com were impressed with the 2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid’s style.

The Los Angeles Times thinks the 2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid “might be thought of as a Camry hybrid with sex appeal.” Since its 2007 restyling, Nissan tweaked the shape in a very minor way, “an effort that has merely refined the car's well-loved, cleanly architectural styling: the perfect-arch roofline, the raked windshield, the close-fitting wheel openings and glassine details at the corners.” Cars.com agrees: “You get a ton of style with the new Altima. Those taillights are pretty amazing.”

The 2008 Nissan Altima is a little sportier, though not less sensible.

Cars.com notes that the 2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid is virtually identical to the standard Altima; Nissan outfits both models with "a notched grille, swanky taillight capsules and dual exhaust." Motor Trend observes, “’Hybrid’ badging aside, this tech-rich Altima is a visual clone.”

The 2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid’s interior gets compliments, too. “It's much nicer and more grown-up,” Edmunds says, “though still not quite up to world-class standards.”

When comparing the 2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid to other hybrids, reviewers enjoy the sportier look. Autoblog agrees: "Of the hybrids available on the market today, the Altima Hybrid would be the one sitting in our green garage."
