There are a number of reasons the Nissan Altima Sedan is celebrating its 20th year of existence in 2012. Not only have Nissan engineers put the Altima through over 5,000 quality and durability tests to ensure performance year-after-year, this sedan provides a smooth ride, is easy to handle and perfect for the driver looking for a vehicle that some see as sporty and others see as luxury.
But what may stand out the most about the 2012 Altima is the 5-star rating for side-impact crash safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. All 2012 Altima’s are equipped with the most modern safety features, including front seat side-impact airbags and a side curtain airbag covering both rows. The 2012 Altima also comes with the anti-lock brakes and stability and traction control. The Institute of Highway Safety also gave the 2012 Altima the highest possible rating in side crash and frontal-offset tests. That’s the type of commitment you can expect from Nissan, where safety is not an option, but a requirement.
There are five different 2012 Altima packages to choose from, each sure to have something for everyone’s driving needs, including a special edition Nissan Altima 20th anniversary package. You can choose from a fuel-efficient, four-cylinder 175 HP engine, or the more powerful V6, 270 HP versions. Known for its plush interior, the Sedan provides plenty of room and comfort and the option for additional amenities such as Bluetooth streaming audio, rearview camera and a hard drive-based navigation system.
There’s a reason the Altima has been a staple of Nissan for two decades. It’s a combination of efficiency, sport and luxury all in one vehicle. See Windsor Nissan to take the 2012 Nissan Altima for a test drive today!
