Join host Jessi Lang as she gives you a quick tour over the 2010 Nissan line-up of sedans: the Maxima, Altima, Versa, and Sentra. All of the vehicles have updated wheel finishes and revised exterior stylizing.
Dubbed “the 4-door sports car”, the Maxima comes in three models with two engine options, the 3.5 S and the 3.5 SV. Also new for 2010 are 2 new exterior colors. Two option packages, the monitor package and technology package, round out the offerings from the Maxima.
The Altima, available in sedan, coupe, or hybrid, now has three additional colors. In the hybrid Altima, the technology continues to evolve. You’ll get power (198 horsepower), fuel economy (34 mpg city and 33 mpg highway), 3 option packages, and a new color (ocean grey) wrapped up in the attractive Altima styling.
The Sentra continues to be one of the best compact sedans in its class. With the revised styling, including a new grille, new interior tweaks, and optional navigation package, the Sentra will still be a crowd pleaser. Under the hood, the Sentra puts out 140 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque at 2,400 rpm.
The Versa, available in a 5-door hatchback or sedan, is best in class for horsepower and torque. From the 1.6L 4-cylinder engine, you’ll get 107 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque. From the 1.8 L engine, power increases a bit, coming in at 122 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. For the transmission, you’ll be able to choose from four options, a 5-speed and 6-speed manual, Xtronic CVT, or an electronically controlled automatic transmission with Overdrive.
Overall, the 2010 Nissan offerings seem to have a vehicle for every desire or whim. The rest of the line up, while not mentioned above, is still worthy of a shout out. If you aren’t in the market for a Maxima, Versa, Altima, or Sentra, be sure to check out the GT-R, 370Z, Xterra, Pathfinder, Murano, Rogue, Armada, Cube, Titan and Frontier.
