Nissan offers glimpse of 2013 Altima [w/video]Sat, 17 Mar 2012 00:00:00 -0700
Nissan has offered a new video in a series of previews of the 2013 Altima that will be heading to the New York Auto Show next month.
The video shows the rear of the new D-segment Altima, and indicates the 2013 model will be more expressive in design than the outgoing model.
This is not the first preview of the new Altima we've seen. A previous video offered up evidence of the car's headlamp graphics as well as a feeling for its overall form language. An overhead view of the car was teased, along with a brief glimpse at the car's front fascia, also in the form of a short video.
Nissan commented on one of the earlier-released videos that the new sedan will have "a low, wide stance and sculpted profile that makes for quite a dynamic appearance."
The 2013 Altima will go on sale in the USA, China and Japan later this year, but the automaker opting not to send this model to Europe, instead preferring to concentrate on its ever-expanding crossover range.
Nissan unveiled latest crossover, the D-segment Nissan Hi-Cross concept alongside its Invitation concept last week at the 82nd annual Geneva motor show.
