Nissan Sport Sedan Concept headed for Detroit show 2014

Wed, 01 Jan 2014

Nissan has issued this new-year teaser of the Nissan Sport Sedan Concept - understood to be a look at the new US-market Maxima saloon.

The world debut of the Sport Sedan Concept is due at the North American International Auto Show, aka the Detroit Motor Show, starting on Monday 13 January 2014.

Although only this solitary shadowy teaser image has been issued today, we can make out a new front-end design on the sports saloon concept car.

The Nissan badge and grille are an evolution of what you'll find on the latest 2014 Qashqai, while those edgy lights are a more radical interpreation of the pointiness found on a 370Z.

"The Sport Sedan Concept previews a new energetic design direction that amplifies Nissan's legendary approach of applying sports car principles to a sedan," said Nissan in a new-year statement.

So far, so typical press release publicity machine. However, look along the flanks of the show car and you'll notice more radical surfacing and a wedgy roofline which suggests some of the GT-R spirit may yet make it to four-door Nissans.

Alongside the Sport Sedan Concept will be the Nissan IDx Freeflow and IDx NISMO concepts, both making their North American debuts.

MSN Cars will be reporting live from the Detroit Motor Show. Stay tuned this month for more news and launches beamed straight from Motown.
