2009 Nissan Altima
Nissan Press Release
31 July 2008
Following its total redesign for the 2007 model year, the Nissan Altima Sedan continues to set individual sales records as Nissan’s best-selling sedan. Designed with the goal of being the best-performing front-wheel drive sedan available globally, the latest generation Altima is built on Nissan’s advanced “D” platform. For 2009, Altima Sedan is again available with a choice of two engines: the award-winning VQ-series 3.5-litre V6 or the powerful 2.5-litre inline 4-cylinder.
Refinements for the new model year include revised standard features for the base grade, revised option package content and three new exterior colours. New standard features on the Altima base model include a new 16-inch wheel cover design, black grille highlights, the addition of dual power remote-controlled sideview mirrors and a standard trip computer and outside temperature gauge. Other base model enhancements include air conditioning with in-cabin microfilter and front side window demisters, trunk cancel switch and rear seat lock, dual sun visors with driver’s side vanity mirror and speed-sensitive variable intermittent windshield wipers.
All 2009 Altimas also receive a new automatic door lock system. The Altima 2.5 S features revised Connection Package content, including dual zone automatic temperature control and rear A/C vents. The Altima 3.5 SE now includes standard Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights, fog lights and rear spoiler. There are also new stand-alone moonroof and 3.5 SL Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) packages
The 2009 Nissan Altima Sedan is available in four models: 2.5 (CVT), 2.5 S (6MT, CVT), 3.5 SE (6MT, CVT), 3.5 SL (CVT).
The 2009 Nissan Altima also offers a range of comfort and convenience features, including standard Nissan Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition, available Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, RearView Monitor and Nissan Navigation with XM NavTraffic real-time traffic information (XM subscription required, sold separately).
“The 2009 Nissan Altima is positioned in the mid-size sedan segment, but it has the looks, quality, driving performance and available features of a much more expensive vehicle,” said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc. “Featuring standard Nissan Intelligent Key, available Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, XM NavTraffic, RearView Monitor and more – along with outstanding acceleration and handling – Altima is truly in a class of its own.”
