The Altima coupe's compressed dimensions and lower curb weight make it feel hungrier around corners.From the back, we see a little too much resemblance to the Pontiac G6.
Just as in the sedan, the cabin of the new Nissan Altima Coupe has a vaguely industrial ambience, although it features simple, well-organized controls. The soft-touch plastic that trims the dash feels rubbery to the touch, and the action of the various dials feels grainy and unpleasant.
The coupe has less headroom than the sedan, of course, and the front seats now have considerable lateral bolsters to hold you around corners. Rush-hour comfort is debatable, though, as the driver seat combines a slightly odd overall shape with firm cushions.
But if you're willing to admit that ride comfort, fuel economy and interior spaciousness are important, then the new Nissan Altima Coupe is one of the best options out there. Among the current population of V6 front-drive coupes, the Altima is by far the best drive.
