2012 Nissan Altima Sedan
The Nissan Altima Sedan continues to provide an innovative combination of quality, exhilarating performance, sporty design and exceptional value in the mid-size sedan class. For 2012, Altima Sedan is again available with a choice of a 175-horsepower 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder or 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine.

Enhancements for the 2012 model year include a new Value Package (includes Bluetooth®, leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering wheel audio controls, auto 0n/off headlights, HomeLink® Universal Transceiver and more) and the continuation of last year’s Special Edition Package. Both are offered with the Altima Sedan 2.5 S. The Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System is now standard on the 3.5 SR and also available as part of the 2.5 S Convenience Package.

Key features of the 2012 Nissan Altima Sedan include:
• Sporty, distinctive exterior design
• Available power sliding glass moonroof
• Standard Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) designed for fluid-feeling performance and efficient operation – V6 utilizes an advanced, performance-tuned controller with adaptive logic
• Front suspension design with advanced geometry, equal-length half shafts that are almost parallel to the ground – virtually eliminating torque steer
• Rear suspension design with an emphasis on nimbleness and ride comfort
• Roomy yet sporty interior space with innovative amenities, including Fine Vision gauge display instrument panel, standard Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition, convenient covered storage compartments and nine cup or bottle holders
• A range of available popular comfort and convenience features, including Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, Bluetooth® Audio Streaming, RearView Monitor and Nissan Navigation with XM NavTraffic® and NavWeather™ Real-Time Traffic Information services (XM® subscription required, sold separately)

The 2012 Nissan Altima Sedan is available in three models – Altima 2.5 CVT, Altima 2.5 S CVT and Altima 3.5 SR CVT. It is on sale now at Nissan dealers nationwide.
