The next generation is set for its first global showing at the 2006 New York International Auto Show. Along with new, more Infiniti-like styling, the 2007 Altima utilizes an all-new Nissan “D” platform with improved body rigidity and a redesigned suspension. It also offers Nissan’s anew Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), and a choice of 3.5-liter V6 or powerful 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engines. The 2007 goes on sale in fall 2006. Check back for more information and pictures when we go live in New York on April 12.
