2012 Nissan Altima
Nissan engineers put the Altima through over 5,000 quality and durability tests to ensure that it keeps performing mile after mile. This includes locking it in a chamber and baking it under 266 bulbs to reach extreme temperatures, as well as putting it through a battery of road tests where some of the worst road conditions possible are replicated.
Choose your engine. Then leave worry far behind
Whichever Altima engine you choose, the fuel-efficient 175-hp 4-cylinder or legendary 270-hp V6, you’ll get both effortless performance and the peace of mind you deserve. Amazing gas mileage and strong, smooth power delivery adds up to a winning combination.
Take your ride to the next level
Many sports sedans feature independent suspensions. The Altima takes the extra step and employs a Z-inspired, lightweight, multi-link design for quick response, while still providing a supple ride. And since comfort is important, you’ll find a rebound spring inside each shock absorber, resulting in a smoother ride and flatter, more secure cornering.
Style and craftsmanship go hand in hand
Take a minute to indulge in the Altima Sedan’s plush interior. Available heated front seats make it hard to leave. Unexpected upscale touches like stitched leather, wood-tone details and patterned metallic accents, are options that invite you to stay. Then relish in the spaciousness and the comfort of the available Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control. This is one ride you won’t want to end.
