The Altima Coupe made a statement all its own. It had a shorter wheelbase, a lowered ride height, sleek aerodynamic profile, and an overall sporty attitude. That attitude can still be found today in the Z® Coupe and Altima sedan.
The compact two-door featured an ergonomic, sporty interior with perfectly placed controls and body-hugging bucket seats, much like today’s performance coupe, the 370Z®. The lower, lighter, leaner Z generates plenty of power—332 horses worth of it—and plenty of adrenaline in everyone who drives it.
Inspired by the engineering and performance built into every legendary Nissan Z®, Altima Coupe was built to ensure that your drive would never be routine. Carrying on that tradition today is the Altima sedan, with its 3.5-liter V6, and the all-new 300-hp, fighter-jet inspired Maxima.
The virtually gearless Xtronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) will change your definition of what a transmission can do. It is always in the right gear, because it doesn’t even have gears. It constantly maintains the right amount of RPMs to keep you in the engine’s sweet spot, which is not only good for seamless performance, but great for efficiency.
