Nissan has just dropped the curtain on a Sport Sedan Concept today that hints at a future production sports sedan.


Nissan-Sport-Concept-05.jpgIn layman’s terms, this is an indication of what the next Nissan Maxima is going to look like. It features Nissan’s next-generation design language including the ‘V-Motion’ front, ‘floating’ roof and boomerang-shaped lamps. This concept is the third in a trio of concepts shown by Nissan that share these new design aspects, elements that will be adapted to all future Nissans.

The exterior of the Sport Sedan Concept has low, wide proportions, with a lower hoodline and reduced ground clearance compared to contemporary sedans. The Concept rides on custom 21-inch wheels with ultra-wide 275/30R21 tires.

Inside, diamond-shaped graphics are placed on the quilted seats, stitching and trim panels. Nissan claims the diamond treatment adds a three-dimensional feel to the interior compared to traditional flat surface designs.

The Sport Sedan Concept is powered by a “300-plus” horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine connected to Nissan’s ubiquitous Xtronic CVT sending power to the front wheels. If this doesn’t scream future Maxima, we don’t know what does.

    If this supposed to be a “Sport Sedan”, put some sport into it…. ie. a 5-6speed manual gearbox.

    The sound works fine on our end. Make sure you unmute the video in the bottom right hand corner of the player. If this video is muted, the videos will always default to mute.
