Used Altima Body Styles

Nissan Altima Body Style

A pre-owned Nissan Altima is more than just stylish. With two different body options (a sedan and a coupe), this top used car can also be quite versatile.

All model years are available as a sedan. Spacious, compact, and designed for comfort, the sedan can be the perfect option for small families and commuters alike. If you're in the market for something that's a bit sportier, the coupe may be best for you.

The Nissan Altima Coupe was introduced as a 2008 model year. Not only is it an eye-catching vehicle, but the coupe's A-pillar back also helped improve aerodynamics for a sportier and efficient ride.


Performance for the Altima has always been well-balanced. Debuting with a 150-horsepower engine, its earliest model years delivered a smooth, robust performance without sacrificing fuel economy. If you're looking for more power, the 2000 model year features an upgraded engine with 155 horsepower.

The brand also introduced a V6 engine for the Altima for its third generation in 2002. Initially producing 240 horsepower, this V6 option was upgraded in 2003 to generate an impressive 245 horsepower.

Today, many used Altima sedans include a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that produces 175 horsepower. They can also come with a 3.5L V6 that delivers 270 horsepower. Plus, more modern options offer a continuously variable transmission for a smoother and more efficient performance.
