Nissan North America Inc. has revamped the interior of the Altima sedan in response to customer criticism.
The 2005 model, which goes on sale this week, has a new instrument panel with chrome trimmed gauges, new door panels, faux metal or wood trim on the console and door panels, and several other cosmetic changes.
Nissan also added a fourth horizontal bar to the grille. Headlights and taillights on the 2005 Altima have smoked glass instead of clear glass. The optional V-6 engine also has been retuned.
Prices were not announced.
