2012 Nissan Altima Coupe
Passion starts with power
Two exciting choices. One thrilling ride. Nissan’s legendary VQ 3.5-liter V6 puts out a whopping 270 horsepower, while the high-energy 175-hp-4-cylinder is responsive and velvety.
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 test where some of the worst road conditions possible are replicated.
Harness the power
6-speed manual is geared to maximize power by reducing the rpm drop between shifts, bringing you the ultimate thrill. Or say goodbye to gear hunting with the available intelligent CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). With fully variable gear ratios, the CVT always transfers the right amount of power to the wheels when you step on the gas.
Rediscover your love from driving
Inspired by the engineering ideals and spirits of innovation that go into every legendary Nissan Z, Altima Coupe’s fully independent suspension ensures that your drive will never be routine. And when you experience the multi-link rear suspension design and front and rear stabilizers that reduce body roll, you’ll quickly realize the Altima Coupe is built to perform.
Comfort on the fast track
perfectly placed controls, sleek materials and convenient features add to Altima Coupe’s sporty interior. Automatic Temperature Control and heated front seats keep your temperature just right, while available power seats make for easy adjustments on the fly.
All the support you need
Sport bucket front seats feature oversized bolsters to give you the lateral support you need when hitting the corners hard.
Going way beyond just navigation
This advanced system is so easy to operate. By using the touch-screen or hands-free voice activation, you can find practically anywhere with just an address. Stay on top of traffic conditions with XM NavTraffic, count on XM NavWeather for the up-to-date forecasts in cities across the U.S. and make a well informed decision about your next meal with trusted ratings and reviews from Zagat Survey.® And with the available RearView Monitor, when you engaged reverse a discreet color camera mounted on the rear of the vehicle helps you see what’s directly behind you.
Get lost in the music
With the available 9-speaker Bose audio system at your disposal you’ll actually feel like you’re at the concert. The 4.3’’ displays shows that song is up next on your MP3 CDs and even lets you browse through folders with just a touch of a button. Settle in, turn up the volume and enjoy the ride.
Plug your iPod in Altima Coupe using the convenient USB input and take your whole collection on the road. You can even control your iPod through the stereo.
Stay connected with both hands on the wheel
The Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System activates via steering-wheel-mounted control and streams songs from your phone’s music player. Now you can keep up connections no matter where the road takes you.
Convenience at your command
Go ahead, leave the key in your purse or pocket. With the Nissan Intelligent Key®just tap a button on the door handle or trunk to unlock them. Then when you’re ready to go just press the Push Button Ignition and drive away.
A solid commitment to safety
Built to protect and serve. The Nissan Safety Shield includes over 50 safety features specifically designed to help take care of you. Standard air bags, six of them, and front-seat Active Head Restraints that move up and forward in rear-end collisions are there to help cushion the blow if one should occur.
