2018 Nissan Altima teased ahead of New York motor demonstrate

Nissan has furnished a 1st glimpse at the forthcoming Altima sedan, set to debut at the New York motor show later on this thirty day period.

Particulars about the new Altima are predictably tough to nail down. Nissan has only supplied one shadowy sketch of its hottest Camry competitor, but it appears like a a lot racier design than the very last – a little dumpy – Altima.

The nose is property to the brand’s V-Movement grille and slimline headlights, when the window-line seems to be much more coupe-like than you’d get in a traditional sedan. Perhaps terrible for headroom, but superior for appears to be like.

Dependent on those two components, we’d recommend the VMotion 2. Strategy (over) is a superior guideline for how the manufacturing Altima will seem.

Outside of that, we’re enjoying the waiting game. We’d be expecting to see a range of four- and 6-cylinder engines hooked up to a CVT transmission, along with optional all-wheel travel.

Of system, there is no assurance the automobile will really be coming to Australia. Nissan is currently an SUV-weighty corporation, while its Asia and Oceania advertising and marketing and product sales vice president, Vincent Wijnen, has admitted a lot more range is needed. 

“It appears odd but we phased out some products for a variety of causes so we knew we’d get a dip. We did consciously say we had to focus substantially clearer on a item technique that is sustainable for the long term as properly,” he told CarAdvice earlier this yr.

“SUVs is one particular main part of it but that will not be adequate to get the development that Mr Ghosn expects. So we will be including solution to our array together with electrification and our aspiration definitely much more than we have right now.”

We’ll preserve you current on the new Altima – and continue to keep you in the loop regarding the likelihood of a community start.
