New York Wrap-Up: Nissan's New Altima

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

The Nissan Altima appears to be edging back toward its larger Maxima sibling in design, but in a good way — not that weird "which one is that"? way of a couple years back. The new, 2007 model, which Nissan unveiled in New York this week, also gets new bones, shedding the FF-L platform it shared with the Maxima in favor of Nissan's new "D" platform, which the company says offers more rigidity. It also gets a new suspension setup and Nissan's Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) kit; available engines remain the 2.5-liter four or 3.5-liter V6.
