9. Nissan Sport Sedan concept
You might assume that something called a “sport sedan” would be sporty. You might assume it would come with a manual transmission, or at least a dual-clutch automatic. All of those assumptions are wrong. The Sport Sedan concept from Nissan has a V6 that makes something in the neighborhood north of 300 hp mated to Nissan’s emasculating CVT.
But there is something to be thankful for here. Nissan hasn’t said as much, but the Sport Sedan concept is believe to preview the next Maxima.
