Geneva motor show has not yet started its activity and since there are some brands that are advancing innovations for the New York. In this case, the first firm to disassociate itself from the rest has been the japanese Nissan, as has been reported through a teaser video posted on its official account of YouTube, which will lead to the appointment of the american the sixth generation of its vehicle media, Altima.
As we all know, the importance and number of developments and relevance in the calendar, Geneva is higher than that of New York, in Europe, however, the sedans do not work at a commercial level and this is why Nissan has decided to skip this model, the appointment switzerland. Therefore, for the premiere of the nine iteration of the Altima have preferred to play in a market that still buys sedans and that you still feel attracted by this type of vehicles.
To level aesthetic there are no references of which to be able to scratch, because the test vehicles that have been captured by the photographers spy had a dense layer of camouflage. However, it is not difficult to guess that the designers of Nissan will take as references the strokes that give life to the flagship of the brand, the Maxima, as well as the new Qashqai, Micra and X-Trail.
At the technical level, is expected to be developed on a evolution of the platform D of Nissan. This will help you to have a range of mechanical composed entirely by mechanical gasoline with four-and six-cylinder. In addition, you could also incorporate some hybrid variant with a view to reducing consumption and emissions. In terms of security systems will incorporate the latest evolution of the protection shield Nissan, as well as a new infotainment system, and connectivity.
As we have already mentioned above, the Auto show New York, which is held at the end of march, will witness its official presentation. In any case, we expect that we will not see it roll down the roads of the Old Continent, because their chances of success are so low that it is not profitable to adapt it to our tastes. A real pity, because in Europe we need models different and fresh to the that are currently traded.
