The Nissan Altima Coupe is a variant of the popular Nissan Altima lineup that has been in production since 1993. The Altima was originally only available as a four-door sedan, though in 2007, the debut of the fourth-generation Altima, a coupe variant was introduced. When the Coupe version was introduced, it was the first two-door Altima available on the market and came with a shorter wheelbase, a lower height and shorter overall length than the sedan variant, something that continues to this day. In 2010, the Altima received the NHTSA’s highest front-end crash safety rating for the first time, and Nissan’s commitment to safety has continued through the fifth-generation (current) Altima models.

The Altima Coupe features a 2.5L 4 cylinder engine capable of 175 horsepower. This is in stark contrast to the Altima sedan, which has a 270hp 3.5L V6 capable of 182hp. The Coupe also gets 22/32 city/highway MPG, whereas the sedan variant gets 27/38 MPG. The Coupe is only available in one trim model, the 2.5 S, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t offer the same or more than the sedan for the price of it (a bit over $25k MSRP). For starters, the coupe is built for performance; its lower weight and smaller ride enables it to get more out of its smaller engine. With technology packages including new safety and performance features, including an updated performance-tuned suspension, the Coupe may not be for everyone, but it provides a great ride akin to the sedan version with a sleeker look and a lower ride.
Like the sedan, the coupe version of the Altima is a car, which means it’s not going to cost you any more than any other standard car to ship it. There are no difficulties in pricing an Altima Coupe because of its size; if there aren’t going to be any factors increasing the price on your sedan, there certainly won’t be any that will affect the coupe. Likewise, a fully-loaded, every-option-on-it Coupe can be had for under $35,000 brand-new from the dealership; this isn’t valuable enough to warrant enclosed transportation, which should save you some money. The Altima Coupe will drop by $5,000 or more the moment you drive it off the lot, and every oil change and maintenance visit will decrease its value further (though less if you were to not keep it up…make sure to keep your vehicle in proper running condition and to keep up with standard scheduled maintenance to get the most long-term value out of it), so there’s really no reason to ship it enclosed; it’s just going to cost you more money for services you don’t need.
