Nissan announces 2011 pricing and minor changes for Altima

Nissan has announced pricing and minor changes for the Altima in 2011.

The Altima S sedan will receive a new Special Edition Package, although the package’s contents are undisclosed. The sedan range also gets three new colours: Metallic Slate, Saharan Stone and Brilliant Silver.

As for the Coupe and Hybrid, changes are limited to exterior colours. The Coupe will now be available with Metallic Slate and Brilliant Silver, while the Hybrid gets Saharan Stone on top of those two colours.

Pricing for the sedan will run at $19,900 USD for the base model, $22,060 for the S, and $24,740 for the range topping SR.

The Coupe will start at $22,940 USD for a six-speed manual equipped S, while the CVT equivalent costs $23,440. The manual SR will cost $30,100, while the CVT model, rather interestingly, will cost $27,770, over $2000 less than the manual model. We’ll be checking with Nissan to make sure this isn’t a typo.

Lastly, the Hybrid will start at $26,780 USD. More information can be found in the press release below.

Again in 2011, Altima is available in a number of well-equipped models designed to appeal to a broad range of buyer needs and budgets, including 175-horsepower 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder and 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine equipped versions. For the 2011 model year, a new Special Edition Package has been added (Altima Sedan 2.5 S). Other refinements include three new exterior colors – Metallic Slate, Saharan Stone and Brilliant Silver.

Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices* (MSRP) for the 2011 Nissan Altima Sedan include:

Altima Sedan 2.5 CVT $19,900 USD
Altima Sedan 2.5 S CVT $22,060 USD
Altima Sedan 3.5 SR CVT $24,740 USD

The sporty, 2-door Nissan Altima Coupe once again offers a high-value, high quality, high style coupe for Altima customers seeking a more personal expression of individuality and fashionable appearance. The 2011 Altima Coupe is available in 2.5 S and 3.5 SR trim levels, equipped with 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder and 3.5-liter V6 engines, respectively, and each offered with a choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or Nissan’s advanced Xtronic CVT™ (Continuously Variable Transmission). Following a long list of enhancements for the previous model year, refinements for the 2011 Altima Coupe are limited to two new exterior colors – Metallic Slate and Brilliant Silver.

The Altima Hybrid, which joined the Nissan lineup in the 2007 model year, continues to offer the efficiency and fuel economy of a hybrid drivetrain with the quality, performance and excitement typical of any Altima Sedan. The Altima Hybrid powertrain mates a specialized version of Nissan’s QR25 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and standard electronically controlled CVT with an advanced electric drive motor/generator. This combination increases fuel economy while maintaining low tailpipe emissions, earning Altima Hybrid a Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (PZEV) rating.

Altima Hybrid has been certified to meet California emissions requirements and is sold in states that have adopted California emissions regulations: California, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maryland and New Mexico. These eleven states are among the strongest markets for hybrid vehicles. For the 2011 model year, Altima Hybrid adds three new exterior colors: Metallic Slate, Saharan Stone and Brilliant Silver.
