both horsepower ratings are about the same... the curb weight on 3.5SR with 6 speed manual comes in at about 3,294 and 3,333 for CVT model... i looked and looked on the mazada site and they didnt post any kind of curb weight for the Speed3, the Altima coupe has way more available features but the Speed3 fully loaded goes for about $26,410 as opposed to a fully loaded Altima coupe which is priced at $34,070. Not to say that the Mazda isn't a great car, but the VQ series has really been doing well for Nissan in recent years, and with a few minor upgrades you will be able to pass the Speed3 in the power department. so my vote goes to the Altima coupe, but it what it really comes down to is how many of these features do you really need in your car? i could live with out the leather and full entertainment package, which would take a big chunk out of the price.... good luck with the final decision... hope this helped you and your dad in some way or another
