2003 Nissan Altima Photo

Welcome to our 2012 Nissan Altima review. With the power to thrill you even during your daily commute, you'll see that the new Altima is no ordinary sedan. New for this year, the Altima is available in a number of models: Altima 2.5, 2.5S, 2.5SL, and Altima 3.5SE.

Once you've selected a model, you also can select from a variety of available Altima body kits and Altima accessories. Be sure to check here frequently for all of the latest Altima news!

Every 2012 Altima comes standard with a reliable and sophisticated engine - a 175-horsepower 2.5-liter 4-cylinder power plant with a compact balancer system that ensures it runs smoothly all the time. The Altima also is available with a V6 engine, 245 horsepower engine, too. As you'll read in any Altima review, both of these engines also boast:

  • Continuously variable valve timing

  • High-performance suspension

  • Drive-by-wire electric throttle

  • Electronic Brakeforce Distribution

  • Traction Control System

  • Four-wheel anti-lock brakes

Performance isn't taken lightly with the 2012 Nissan Altima. For a small car, this one packs quite a punch.

The 2012 Altima looks good, too. New for this year, exterior features include camera lens-style headlights, motorcycle-inspired taillights, dual exhaust with chrome tailpipes, 16- or 17-inch alloy wheels, and side mirrors with a unique crease that gives the car a distinctive look that's talked about in every Altima review. Interior features consist of:

  • 8-way adjustable driver's seat

  • 60/40 rear-split seat

  • Steering-wheel mounted controls

  • Motorcycle-inspired gauges

  • Bose audio system

If these standard features aren't enough, some of the 2012 Nissan Altima accessories include a sunroof wind deflector, door edge guards, and an in-cabin microfilter. And for the driver who really wants to make his Altima look stylish, there are a number of 2012 Nissan Altima body kits that include features such as extreme spoilers, bumpers, and side rails.

Last, but not least, the 2012 Nissan Altima is equipped with over 50 standard safety features. The first line of defense is an agile suspension and an advanced braking system. The second line of defense is a set of structural reinforcements. Next, the car's boasts dual stage supplemental front air bags. As an added bonus, the Vehicle Security System flashes the headlights and sounds the horn if there's any attempt to open the doors or hood without a key. It is features like these that make the Altima one of the most popular sedans on the road today. Don't take our word for it, though - test drive a 2012 Nissan Altima and experience the Altima and everything it offers for yourself.
