2012 Nissan Altima Coupe At A Glance

PDF File (123.78 KB): 2012 Nissan Altima Coupe Specs

The 2-door Nissan Altima Coupe, like its 4-door Altima Sedan stablemate, offers high quality and high value – while adding an extra touch of aggressive coupe styling for Altima customers seeking a more personal expression of individuality and sporty appearance.  The Altima Coupe’s unique exterior design stands out in a crowd of sedan-based 2-door models with magnetic, perfectly proportioned styling and a shorter wheelbase, shorter overall length and lower height than the Altima Sedan.  The smaller size and lighter overall weight also contribute to the Coupe’s sportier driving feel.

For 2012, Altima Coupe is again available in 2.5 S and 3.5 SR trim levels, equipped with 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder and 3.5-liter V6 engines, respectively, and each offered with a choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or Nissan’s advanced Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission).

Altima Coupe’s long list of user-friendly technology features includes standard Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition and available Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, advanced touch-screen navigation system with XM NavTraffic® and NavWeather™ Real-Time Information services (XM® subscription required, sold separately) and RearView Monitor.
