The 2006 Nissan Altima 2.5 is the base model of this front-wheel drive mid-sized sedan that rivals the Maxima in terms of features, but with a less expensive price tag. A 2.5-liter, 175-hp I4 engine sits under the hood, matched to a 5-speed manual, giving the Altima some nice power and sportiness. Rear seats split-fold and have a armrest/trunk pass-through for access to the trunk, which holds up to 16 cubic feet of cargo.
The 2006 Altima 2.5 is minimally equipped, with 16-inch wheels, front and rear disc brakes, and dual front airbags. Air conditioning is not even included as an option, but it does come with power windows and locks, intermittent wipers, a power outlet, and a tachometer. Extra storage is available in front and overhead consoles. A radio/cassette player or CD player is optional, but there are no other add-ons available. The 2006 Altima 2.5 earns five stars in front crash ratings, but only three in side impact tests. Drivers like the 24/30 mpg, the power, and the interior space in their Altima.

Much better equipped than the base model, the 2006 Nissan Altima 2.5 S is the next step up in Nissan's best-selling front-wheel drive mid-sized sedan, and one of the most popular trims. As its name implies, a 2.5-liter, 175-hp DOHC I4 engine sits under the hood, with a choice of 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. The 2006 Altima 2.5 S adds a lot more features, including air conditioning, power windows, locks, and mirrors, cruise control, a CD player, tilt and telescopic steering, and variable power steering. Like the base model, dual front airbags are also standard, earning 5-star frontal impact ratings.
The 2006 Altima 2.5 S comes with a fully independent suspension and front and rear disc brakes, as well as 16-inch wheels with all-season tires. ABS brakes are optional. Rear seats split-fold 60/40 and feature a trunk pass-through that doubles as an armrest. There are a few more options offered with the 2.5 S, including a new satellite radio, foglights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a power sunroof. A Special Edition package adds power seats, automatic headlights, and wheel-mounted audio controls. Highlights include the surprising amount of roomy, the style, and peppy acceleration for an I4 engine. Drivers mention that there is some highway noise and that the front armrest is located too far back.

More power and a lot more features are packed into the 2006 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE, a front-wheel drive mid-sized family sedan that's also a lot of fun to drive. The Altima is Nissan's most popular car, and the 3.5 SE comes with a 3.5-liter, 250-hp DOHC V6 under its hood, matched to a standard 5-speed manual or optional 5-speed automatic. A sportier ride comes with a stiffer fully independent suspension, and the Altima 3.5 SE features front and rear stabilizer bars and front and rear disc brakes. ABS brakes, traction control, and xenon headlights are optional. Dual front airbags earn frontal impact ratings of five stars. Side airbags for both rows are extra.
Building on the power features and cruise control of the 2.5 S, the 2006 Altima 3.5 SE adds a power driver's seat, a temperature display, wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls, automatic headlights, foglights, and leather trim for the steering wheel and shifter. The 16 cubic foot trunk comes with a cargo net and can be accessed via a rear seat armrest/trunk pass-through. The rear seats also split-fold down. Heated leather seats, a sunroof, automatic climate control, a navigation system, a rear spoiler, speed-sensing windshield wipers, and a new satellite radio are attractive options. Drivers of the 2006 Altima 3.5 SE like the 21/29 fuel economy, the interior space, and the powerful engine which makes acceleration easy and fun. Too much torque steer and a poorly laid out dash are the major complaints.

The most upscale trim in the lineup, the 2006 Nissan Altima 3.5 SL rivals the slightly larger Maxima in terms of standard features and power, all at a lower price point. With a 250-hp, 3.5-liter DOHC V6 and 5-speed manumatic transmission, the 2006 Altima 3.5 SL adds 4-wheel ABS brakes, xenon headlights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, automatic climate control, a sunroof, CD changer, and heated leather seats. This is in addition to a power driver's seat, full power features, wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls, a trip computer, security system, and tilt and telescopic steering.
Dual front airbags are standard, with an option to add side impact bags for both rows. Conveniences such as a cargo net, seatback pockets, storage consoles, a power outlet, and cupholders are family-oriented. Since it's well-outfitted, there are few options, but you can add a navigation system, traction control, and speed-sensing wipers. New this year is optional satellite radio. Pickup is satisfying on the 2006 Altima 3.5 SL, and drivers also like the interior comfort, standard features, exterior styling, and 4 and 5-star crash ratings. There are some complaints about the interior ergonomics and the placement of the front armrest.

A nice blend of performance and luxury is found in the 2006 Nissan Altima SE-R, which is outfitted to take full advantage of the 3.5-liter, 24-valve, 250-hp DOHC V6 engine. It comes with a choice of a 5-speed manumatic or its own 6-speed manual transmission. It also features a stiffer sports suspension than the 3.5 SE, larger 18-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, bigger brakes, xenon headlights, supportive sport seats, and chrome exterior trim. Inside is much like the SL, with heated leather seats, power features, a security system, trip computer, wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls for the CD changer, a sunroof, leather accents, and automatic climate control. The 2006 Altima SE-R adds heated mirrors as well.
On the outside, the SE-R gets a rear spoiler, in keeping with its image. Automatic headlights (with delay), foglights, front and rear disc brakes with 4-wheel ABS, and dual front airbags with a passenger deactivation sensor keep the sporty front-wheel drive sedan in the high range for safety ratings. Side airbags for both rows and traction control are optional, as is a new satellite radio. The navigation system is not offered on the 2006 Altima SE-R. Performance, power, and pickup rank high with owners, who also love the smooth ride, interior space, and overall style. Major torque steer is an issue.
