New Gadgets for 2010 Nissan Altima, Maxima, Sentra

Japanese manufacturer Nissan recently announced a new upgrade for selected 2010 sedans which are also getting minor exterior and interior styling changes. The 2010 Nissan Altima, Maxima and Sentra will thus be equipped with more gadgets, including Bluetooth wireless connectivity that will be offered either as standard or as an option.

The navigation system for the Altima and Maxima have been upgraded as well, Autonews wrote today, while the Sentra is now offering a navigation option priced at $400. The navigation upgrades provide a wide array of features, including restaurant reviews, traffic information and weather forecasts, the source wrote.

Other features will be offered as well, such as a hard drive for music and DVD videos. Together with the navigation system, the new features are comprised in a separate package priced at $1,850 for the Maxima and $1,780 for the Altima.

The 2010 Altima went on sale in the United States earlier this month and will be offered in several trim levels, including a new 3.5 SR configuration that replaces the old 3.5 SE version.

The car is powered by either a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder unit developing 175 horsepower or a 3.5-liter V6 configuration that generates 270 horsepower. The hybrid model comes with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder powerplant and standard electronically-controlled CVT with an advanced electric unit. The hybrid powertrain develops 198 horsepower, with EPA fuel economy estimated at 35 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.

Other features include a Bose AM/FM audio system with nine speakers, 4.3-inch color display, USB port with iPod connectivity, Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, MP3/WMA CD-ROM playback, XM Satellite Radio (XM subscription required, sold separately) and RearView Monitor.
