The 2009 Nissan Altima is an excellent choice for many reasons. Its new technology and sporty styling are sure to impress. Its optional safety equipment includes a full complement of airbags and an advanced anti-lock braking system with electronic brakeforce distribution. The car's safety features are among the best in its class. In a crash, you can rest assured that your passengers will stay safe, with standard anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control.
The 2009 Nissan Altima is equipped with the same engine as the 2010 and 2011 models. Its turbocharged 2.0-liter VC Turbo engine is available in both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models. Its wheelbase is only one inch shorter than the third-generation model, making it a worthy rival to the Subaru Legacy and Ford Fusion midsize sedans. The 2009 Altima's suspension features struts with stabilizer bars and is known for its firm ride and moderate road noise. Although it can seat four adults comfortably, the car is too narrow to accommodate five people.
The Nissan Altima's interior is comfortable and practical, with plenty of rear seat space. The standard fold-down locking rear seatback can make the cargo space in the cabin larger, despite the fact that the Altima's trunk is not as large as the Maxima's. There are two cupholders located between the shift lever and center storage bin. If you like a cup of coffee while you're driving, you can keep it in your cup holder between the shift lever and the center storage bin.
Other than the automatic transmission, the Nissan Altima's interior is impressive. All Altima models have a new keyless ignition system. The base-level model has new 16-inch wheel covers, standard trip computer, and speed-sensitive variable intermittent windshield wipers. The interior also gets a revised option package. Compared to the other models, the Altima's base model is loaded with new features.
The Nissan Altima's interior is also well-equipped with new standard equipment. The base-level 2.5 S is equipped with an automatic door-lock system. Its upgraded option package adds a new 16-inch wheel cover. The basic 2.5 S trim has power windows and mirrors. The steering wheel is powered by a manual. Moreover, the interior has been enhanced with a new steering column and a redesigned instrument cluster.
The 2009 Nissan Altima has many features and a great range of options. Aside from the 3.6-liter V6 engine, the car has two other engines: a straight-4 engine and a 3.5-liter V6. All models come with a 6-speed manual. However, the CVT model's fuel efficiency rating is slightly lower than those of gas-only models.
