The Nissan Altima is a mid-size car manufactured by Nissan. The very first Altima rolled off the assembly line on June 15, 1992, as a 1993 model. All Altimas had been built in Smyrna, Tennessee, until June 2004, when Nissan's Canton, Mississippi, plant began producing additional Altimas to meet high demand.
The coupe version of the Nissan Altima (codename D32) was officially revealed at the 2006 Los Angeles Auto Show, Nissan's first-ever two-door Altima. It had a shorter wheelbase, shorter overall length and lower height than the Altima Sedan. It was released on May 25, 2007 as a 2008 model. Nissan decided to discontinue the Altima Coupe following the end of production for the 2013 model year.
It was the 2002 North American Car of the Year. In 2010, the Altima received the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's highest front- impact crash safety rating (five stars).
