There was a lot of commotion before the release of the Altima.  Now, after the debut, Nissan continue rambling about it. We've got it, it's the most magnificent, outstanding, best-in-class sedan there is. At a certain point, we do understand them however. The Nissan Alitma was the second the second best-selling car in the U.S last year. Promoting it properly is making sure that it stays as the company's bread and butter product.

"This new Altima builds on the fundamental reputation earned over four generations for quality and reliability -- and adds class-leading levels of value, innovation, dynamic performance and premium style," said Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn.

It would seem that most pride is taken when talking about the fuel economy. Nissan are adamant to put a stress on the 38 mpg highway efficiency figure. Again, provided that we are talking about the 2.5-liter, 182 hp baby engine.

Now here's a video of Mr Carlos Ghosn himself, Nissan CEO, explaining some of the key ideas and features behind the fifth incarnation of the popular sedan:
