The Nissan Sport Sedan, although presented as a concept vehicle and design study at the 2014 North American International Auto Show, previews a future four-door production vehicle. The concept is thought by many to be a close representation of what Nissan’s ’15 Maxima sedan would look like. The styling and equipment shows that Nissan is working to attract owners with a passion for cutting-edge design and driving dynamics.
The energetic Sport Sedan is the latest from a company that has become known for bold and emotional design. The Sport Sedan Concept rides on custom 21-in. aluminum-alloy wheels mounted with low-profile 275/30R21 tires. The front-wheel-drive Sport Sedan Concept is powered by a 300-plus-hp 3.5L V6 engine backed by a sport-tuned Xtronic CVT and features an innovative suspension layout with performance dampers.
"Our new design direction mirrors the strength, power and capabilities of the engineering and innovation that serves as the foundation of every Nissan vehicle," said Nissan Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Shiro Nakamura. "Nissan is a brand for people seeking bold and passionate experiences, and who are willing to make choices outside of traditional boundaries. That's why Nissan is committed to breaking new ground in automotive design."
