In 1982 Nissan introduced the Stanza, a FWD car slated between the economy Sentra line and the luxury Maxima line. From 1982-1986 the T11 Stanza was available as a sedan, a 4-door wagon and a 2-door hatchback. Engine sizes included 1.6L up to 2.0L variants of the CA engine. The model was updated in 1986 with the new T12 Stanza. The boxy T12 was available as both 4-door sedan and 4-door hatchback. Discontinued in 1990 the T12 was replaced by the U12 which featured Nissan’s all new KA24E 2.4L engine. Styling was sleek and fresh with the look of a mini-Maxima. The U12 was available only as a 4-door sedan. It was quick, had many creature comforts for the time. In 1992 the Stanza became the U13 Stanza Altima but by 1995 the Stanza name had been retired forever.
