2009 Altima Hybrid by Nissan

The Nissan lineup joined the Nissan Altima Hybrid last year and yet, continues to mis the fuel economy and efficiency with the excitement and performance of any Altima model. The 2009 unit of all the Japanese auto comes with a basic auto door-lock capability as well with four all new exterior choices of color: Red Brick, Sonoran Sand, Mystic Jade and Navy Blue.

Altima Hybrid has impressive list with available features including the leather-appointed seating, the Bluetoothâ Hands-free Phone System, XM® Satellite Radio (with XM® subscription required, and sold separately), RearView Monitor and the Advanced Navigation System by Nissan with the Energy Flow Display – real-time.

“Hybrids are top-of-mind for buyers seeking low emissions/high fuel-efficiency vehicles, but not all hybrids are created equal,” said Al Castignetti, the vice president and general manager at Nissan Division, North America. “When developing the Altima Hybrid, Nissan engineers had a requirement to make it a Nissan-style hybrid, not just a fuel efficient car. This is a key reason that the Altima Hybrid has done so well when stacked up against the competition, such as in the recent comparison by a leading automotive enthusiast magazine, which called the Altima Hybrid ‘the best’ among the hybrids tested.”

“Altima Hybrid’s drive system creates a synergy between its electric motor and its gasoline engine, offering efficiency and excitement in the same attractive package,” affirmed Castignetti.

“Altima Hybrid feels remarkably smooth – most drivers will never be aware of the transitions between the electric and gasoline power sources,” Castignetti said. “Mostly what they will feel is highly responsive acceleration and the seamless delivery of power under almost all driving conditions.”
