In a few weeks, Nissan is expected to debut the slightly refreshed 2010 Nissan Altima to throngs of highly anticipated fans. We are, of course, being sarcastic. As it is with most mid-cycle refreshes, the changes to the 2010 Nissan Altima are expected to be entirely cosmetic and largely unnoticeable to the untrained eye, which is hardly something worth frothing at the mouth over. Starting today, details will be leaked out in an agonizingly slow fashion, finally culminating in a 40-image photo gallery and multi-paragraph press releasing trumpeting the brilliant addition of a more defined rear deck lid. But as usual, we digress.
As per the first wave of scintillating details to be released: the 2010 Nissan Altima will sport a slightly revised front fascia, virtually undetectable new rear license plate frame, new 16″ and 17″ alloy wheel options and the 3.5 SE has been rebadged the 3.5 SR. Hey, wake up man, you’re drooling your keyboard.
