The all-new Nissan Altima will debut at the 2018 New York Auto Show.

The Japanese automaker has confirmed its best-selling sedan will debut on March 28, and Nissan says it chose New York because the Northeast region is the most popular market for the Altima. The next-generation model has been caught on camera by spy photographers and it appears it will be more stylish, with a bit of a fastback design to its body. Although unconfirmed, it also looks like the Altima’s wheelbase has been lengthened to offer more interior space for passengers.
