2015 Nissan Maxima Is Going To Look Really Nice

Posted by: Kenny Chan onApril 16th, 2014

If what Nissan Chief Planning Officer and Executive Vice President Andy Palmer said about their car show concept cars continues to ring true, then the next Nissan Maxima is going to look very nice. We first saw the Sport Sedan Concept in Detroit at the 2014 North American International Auto Show and Nissan has brought it here to New York for the NYIAS. Nissan had the all-new 2015 Murano share the stage with the Sport Sedan Concept to highlight how the new Nissan design language can flow from crossover to sedan and look just as good. Based on what the Resonance concept looked like and how closely the production version resembled it, I can see this Sport Sedan Concept translating nicely into a production vehicle.

“At Nissan, we create concept vehicles with an eye toward production, rather than just for entertaining auto show audiences,” said Andy Palmer, chief planning officer and executive vice president, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. “Likely few people who saw Resonance in its North American International Auto Show debut imagined that we could build such a futuristic design. But here it is, ready to hit Nissan showrooms less than 24 months later.”

Out front the “V-Power” front grill is present along with the carbon fiber bits on the lower fascia that was present on the Resonance Concept. I’ve come to learn from the Murano reveal that this will likely go away on the production version of this sedan but the sideskirts already look production-ready. The boomerang headlights are much better suited to the lines of the sedan though in my opinion.

Just imagine actual door handles and properly sized side mirrors and there is really nothing left to the imagination. Let’s see how much of the Nissan Sport Sedan Concept makes it to production. If the timetable is similar to the Resonance Concept, we won’t have to wait too long!
