MANHATTAN, Kan., July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- For 2015, Nissan's best-selling model, the Altima settles comfortably into its cushy and unthreatened position in the midsize sedan segment. The 2015 Nissan Altima available in Manhattan Kansas has been molded and transformed throughout the past years to become a respectable family car that provides all of the necessary passenger and cargo space, yet isn't just another car on the road.

The 2015 Altima shows off its slender curves that accentuate its sleek and sporty body. Despite being marketed as a family sedan, the Altima packs quite a bit of power in either of its efficient engine options. The 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine capable of 182 horsepower and 27 city/ 38 highway mpg comes standard on the first four trim levels. The gutsier 3.5-liter V6 engine will be firing up 270 horses while still maintaining an estimated fuel economy rating of 22 city/ 32 highway mpg.

The all-new Altima isn't the only fuel efficient option that Briggs Nissan has chosen to show off, especially when drivers are searching for alternatives to gasoline powered vehicles. The purely electric, environmentally friendly 2015 Nissan Leaf available in Manhattan, Kanas has made quite the statement in more than just fuel efficiency. The five-door hatchback design shows off a bulbous backend design that slims down to a sloping front end while the zero tailpipe emissions make for a quieter ride.

A fully charged battery within the 2015 Nissan Leaf allows drivers to travel up to an 84-mile range which equates to an estimated fuel economy rating of 126 city/ 101 highway MPGe with a combined total of 114 MPGe. According to general estimations, this is more than twice the distance an average driver covers on a daily basis.

In addition to a home charger, Nissan is in the process of adding to the numerous charging stations set up throughout varying cities as an added convenience. Drivers are then given the opportunity to charge their vehicle at work, while running errands or dining at a restaurant.

Briggs Nissan encourages drivers who are considering making the switch to an electric vehicle to explore the capabilities and spacious cabin of the all-new Leaf; meanwhile, the 2015 Altima remains one of the highest recommendations for all drivers at Briggs Nissan.
