Nissan gave the world a preview of the next generation Nissan Maxima today with the debut of the Sport Sedan concept at the Detroit Auto Show. The Sport Sedan concept also previews future Nissan design themes, including the V-Motion front aspect, distinctive “floating” roof and boomerang-shaped lamps.
“Our new design direction mirrors the strength, power and capabilities of the engineering and innovation that serves as the foundation of every Nissan vehicle,” stated Nissan Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Shiro Nakamura.
The Sport Sedan Concept’s interior also offers cues to future production designs. Premium materials are found throughout, with the use of diamond-shaped graphics on the quilted seats, stitching and panels enhancing the sense of dynamic motion.
“The Sport Sedan Concept shows a new, highly emotional and energetic design direction that takes Nissan’s legendary approach of applying sports car principles to a sedan to the next level,” added Nissan Executive Vice President and Chief Planning Officer Andy Palmer. “The Sport Sedan Concept captures that essence with authentic sports car design and proportions.”
