wow......sounds like the v has more rear seat room. if i tagged my v i would plate it 'mini limo' funny but true. technology says it's a sin that a mid size car has less rear seat room than a subcompact. especially one from the same carmaker. that's embarrassing. is it just me or does the yaris look smaller everytime you see one.what i can tell you about the altima. fun ride fun handling good factory stereo comfortable seats and pretty easy to work on for maintenance back seat is for people under 5feet tall and skinny. smooth ride. think i just about covered it for my test drive and maintenance dealings with it.
