They liked in cord interior a little better and felt like the Altima had a little bit cheap interior though they did say that the Altamont gets better when you get in the Hyatt rims which it does the SV trim has plastic by your knees but the SR has leather as well as the SL and platinum editions I believe and lower on the dash it's hard in the SV but soft in the other models. They tested a Camry XLE in this one LOL.

    Yeah, from the looks of it, the SV gets hard plastic on the lower dash and there's no leather wrapped knee padding. I wonder if the SR has a hard lower dash too, despite having the leather knee pads.

    This is a clip of both engines acceleration from just putting your foot down on the pedal. Notice how it's shifting. It's only shifting because they didn't break torque it to get the best launch otherwise it would have not shifted it would have just went to Red Line and both engines

    The new Altima looks like a sales flop. Sad, but predictable. In November it was (rounding) 1. Camry 24k, 2. Accord 23k, 3. Altima 12k. Sales are down 37% over the OUTGOING model!

    And Nissan sales as a whole were down 19%.

    Infiniti was up as the QX50 is finally taking off. But all their sedans and coupe combined barely break 3k so expect them all to be discontinued unless the new CEO is REALLY something special.

    Seems the market has had enough of Nissan's screwing around with mediocre-to-bad products. I saw this coming in when the last Altima and Q50 launches were colossal disasters and they successfully screwed up the bread-and-butter models of both brands. They had to be perfect from that point on and they just don't have it in them.

    -_- really. smh

    The Altima has been on sale 1 whole month and you're declaring it a flop already? It is common for inventory to be short when transitioning to an all new model. Old model years are sold off aggressively and new model production/inventory is ramping up. Nissan stated at the LA auto show that the Kicks and the new Altima are currently their fastest selling models. It takes a few months to determine if a car is a flop. At the rate that I've seen the new Altima in Houston, it will not be a flop. But it is realistic to expect that it IS NOT going to sell as well as the last-gen model in it's prime, simply due to current market conditions. It's also possible that Nissan is focusing on getting the cars to key markets and Houston is a big Nissan market, hence why I have seen them so much compared to it's sales numbers.

    Nissan has aggressively cut fleet sales. It was stupid of them to juice sales with fleet, but they are taking the steps to right that wrong and overall sales drops are the consequences. Retail sales are probably around the same as they've always been in recent years. 110k in sales on a very down month is nothing to sneeze at. 10 years ago that was a pipe dream for Nissan. But a 19% drop is a 19% drop.

    Infiniti sales were up. I don't know how you can spin that to be bad. Who cares what sold the most... sales were up. And then we have the leap that the cars will be discontinued... I quit there.
