The Nissan Altima 2.5 S four-door sedan receives only minimal upgrades for 2008, since it was completely redesigned for 2007. Among the only upgrades are standard antilock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (which adjusts braking depending on passenger weight and cargo), a new antenna, and factory-installed XM satellite radio, which is available as an option.
Under the hood of the Nissan Altima 2.5 S is a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produces 175 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, while a smooth CVT (continuously variable transmission) with manual shift control is available as an option.
Interior features for the 2008 Altima 2.5 S include easy-to-read Fine Vision gauges and LCD readouts, aluminum trim or optional wood-tone accents, and a sculpted look for the center vents above the console. Other features include an Intelligent Key system with push-button ignition, a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system with a CD player and MP3 input, six standard airbags, and an optional Bluetooth hands-free phone system.
Drivers gave the 2007 model high marks for its improved styling, responsive handling, and road-hugging performance, and those attributes continue to apply to the 2008 model, making it a good value in the eyes of many drivers.

The Nissan Altima 3.5 SE is the higher-end version of the Japanese automaker's popular four-door, front-wheel-drive sedan. For 2008, it received only minimal upgrades, since it was completely redesigned the previous year. Among the only upgrades were standard anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (which adjust braking depending on passenger weight and cargo), a new antenna, and factory-installed XM satellite radio, which is available as an option.
As its name implies, the 2008 Altima 3.5 SE is powered by a 3.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produces 270-horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, while a smooth CVT (continuously variable transmission) with manual shift control is available as an option.
Interior features for the 2008 Altima 3.5 SE include easy-to-read Fine Vision gauges and LCD readouts, aluminum trim or optional wood-tone accents, and six standard airbags. Other features include an Intelligent Key system with push-button ignition, a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system with a CD player and MP3 input, and an optional Bluetooth hands-free phone system.
The 3.5 SE also comes with power-adjustable front seats, a power sliding glass moon roof, traction control, fog lights, heated exterior mirrors, and 17-inch aluminum wheels.
Drivers gave the 2007 Altima high marks for its improved appearance, responsive handling, and road-hugging performance, and those attributes continue to apply to the 2008 model, making it a good value in the eyes of many drivers.

Introduced in 2007, the Nissan Altima Hybrid changes little for 2008. The eco-friendly sedan features a sleek, sporty exterior design and a front-wheel-drive configuration. Under the hood, Nissan again drops its well-tested, highly rated Hybrid Energy System, licensed from Toyota. The powerplant consists of a 158-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine coupled to a permanent-magnet AC synchronous electric motor that produces up to 40 hp, bringing the system's total horsepower to 198.
The electric motor has enough low-end torque to move the Altima Hybrid from a standing start. Once up to cruising speed, the gas engine takes over as the electric motor shuts down, but it kicks in under heavy acceleration, such as during a passing maneuver. When braking or coasting, the gas engine shuts down to conserve fuel.
Regenerative brakes recharge the 245-volt nickel-metal hydride battery with kinetic energy that otherwise would be wasted, converting it to electricity, so there's no need to plug in the vehicle. The Hybrid’s only available transmission, a CVT unit called eCVT, works with the master control system to determine the proper power outputs. The Altima Hybrid posts fuel economy numbers of 35/33 mpg, comparable to the Toyota Camry Hybrid's 34/34 mpg rating.
The driver can monitor the hybrid system by viewing the power meter on the instrument panel, which indicates when the car is running solely on electric power, when it's generating electricity, and how much energy remains in the system. In addition, an available navigation system displays a real-time image of the hybrid system at work.
The 2008 Altima Hybrid comes equipped with such standard features as remote keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, power windows and door locks, Nissan's push-button ignition system, and an AM/FM/CD audio system. Options, such as Bluetooth wireless connectivity, leather-appointed seats, and a leather-wrapped shift knob, can quickly push up the car's cost, though. Outside, standard features include chrome-tipped dual exhaust pipes and exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals. The Altima Hybrid rides on 16-inch wheels and includes four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, and advanced airbags.
The hybrid engine provides good acceleration and a spirited ride, according to drivers and reviewers, who are pleasantly surprised by the sedan's performance. In fact, many consider the Altima Hybrid a better performer than the Camry Hybrid, with more agile handling and a firmer ride. For 2008, the Altima Hybrid is available only in certain states, including California, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
