Nissan Working on a Maxima Upgrade for an end 2014 Reveal
|   Monday, August 26, 2013
Nissan thinks that its front wheel drive Maxima is a sports car, although in reality it is far more of a sedan. The transmission system on the Maxima is also not worth the extra hype as it makes the car bland. Nissan could be considering a sportier version of the Maxima although officials are yet to reveal things to the media. This is however a possibility considering the latest hype in the market.

Nissan has however released teaser images of a car although it is not sure what this car is actually.
Experts believe that this could be the next generation Maxima although nothing regarding the car has been confirmed. The teaser was launched by Nissan at an internal event and the car looks like a close relative of the GTR. The unnamed vehicle borrows styling cues from the Renaissance Concept showcased by Nissan at the Detroit Motor Show this year.

However, it is yet to be seen if Nissan finally upgrades the Maxima. The vehicle lacks the sporty edge of a rear wheel drive GTR although the motor packs in enough punch to be a successful relative of the GTR. Nissan could offer three body kits on the Maxima initially and the list includes a sporty, low slung body, a medium ranged sedan body style and a high placed kit.

Nissan has worked hard on its left hand, rear wheel drive cars and the Maxima is the only front wheel drive sedan in the lineup at the moment. The next generation vehicle is expected to be slightly sportier than the current generation Maxima and this should be a proper vehicle for the market demands. However, this is still a far shot as Nissan has revealed that the Maxima, if launched, will not be showcased before end 2014, which points at an early 2015 launch.

Experts believe that although the project has a long way to go before the company can officially comment on its whereabouts, Nissan is concerned about the future of the Maxima as the vehicle had a lot of potential while the engineers had thought of the vehicle. The Nissan Maxima however never managed to grab the attention or sales the car was supposed to achieve.

The 2014 Maxima however is a replica of the 2014 GTR although the car does manage to hold its own ground when it comes to external styling. The Maxima received its last major uplift back in 2008 and the falling sales have forced Nissan to think of a potent facelift since. Nissan is working to change its brand image as Infiniti was Nissan's rear wheel drive brand while the main firm was busy with front wheel drive vehicles.

The Nissan Maxima is currently gaining prime ground as the Chevrolet SS Coupe is being reintroduced in the market. The competition in the stiff market condition could improve within the next few months. The battle of the rear wheel drive Maxima will be fun although further news will be posted once Nissan confirms the details.
