2010 Nissan Altima Coupe Review

Updated on February 16, 2011

The 2010 Nissan Altima has an attractive sporty style and a reliable power train system that help make it one of the most desirable sports cars for the year. The Altima has always ranked consistently high in terms of reviews among consumers, and the 2010 model is certainly no exception. In fact, many aspects of the 2010 model are an improvement upon those from previous years, but there are still a number of drawbacks to the Nissan Altima Coupe in terms of comparison with other similar models of cars on the market.

Aside from the car’s attractive sporty design and curved edges that add to the car’s already streamlined aerodynamics, perhaps the greatest aspect of the 2010 Nissan Altima Coupe is the continuously variable transmission, which allows for greater power output from the engine while still economizing fuel. Other bonuses from the 2010 model include an easy-to-use iPod integration system and fully-functional navigation system, which are standard on all models.

The only foreseeable downside to the improved on-board electronics could be the fairly basic Bluetooth connectivity that does not include any additional features. While the on-board electronics and entertainment features already enhance the drive of the 2010 Nissan Altima, another advantage that the Altima coupe has over many of its competitors is the comfortable seating and interior. Despite the car’s compact, sporty look, there is still ample leg room for even the leggiest of drivers.

In terms of power, the base model of the Nissan Altima coupe leaves something to be desired. The four-cylinder engine and five-speed transmission is not exactly what you would expect from something so sporty. However, the 3.5 SR model offers an upgrade to 3.5 liter V-6 engine and a manual six-speed transmission that just seems to give the car the overall zing that better matches its look.

On even the basic model, the 2010 Nissan Altima coupe offers a 4.3 inch LCD display for listening to music, along with a USB port for iPods and MP3 players. On other trim packages, there is also a hard-drive based navigation system that also allows for traffic reporting and on-board music storage. While these kinds of options may not seem necessary to all drivers, they are still cool electronics features that make driving longer distances in a compact sports car more comfortable and affordable than ever before.
