Nissan’s New Sport Sedan Concept Offers Glimpse of Future Designs

Nissan's Sport Sedan Concept at 2014 NAIASIf you thought your tractor was sexy, wait until you check out Nissan’s new Sport Sedan Concept. Based on the ever-popular Maxima, the Sport Sedan takes on an edge as it captured the attention of attendees at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in its world debut.

Nissan’s Sport Sedan adds to a growing lineup that reflects the automaker’s next generation design vocabulary.

“Our new design direction mirrors the strength, power and capabilities of the engineering and innovation that serves as the foundation of every Nissan vehicle,” Shiro Nakamura, Nissan Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, said.

The Sport Sedan, glistening in “Strad-Amber” – a vibrant shade of burnt orange – keeps the Maxima’s 3.5-liter V6 engine with front-wheel drive.

The Sport Sedan Concept calls to mind movement itself with a fluid body design, sharp creases, V-shaped grille, and “floating” roof. Inside, diamond-shaped graphics incorporated in the seating create a three-dimensional quality.

Nissan aims to extend its reach to the upcoming generation as the company enhances the distinct design of future vehicles. We at James Ceranti Nissan think the next generation will have no problem ditching those bulky, green tractors for Nissan’s sleek, new Sport Sedan Concept.
