The new generation of the Nissan Altima has recently been teased in a video, ahead of its official debut at the 2012 New York Auto Show.
While this year’s Geneva Motor Show is coming in pretty fast, opening its gates for the press on the 5th of March, the Japanese based automaker Nissan is getting ready to take on the next major automotive event, the New York Auto Show, with the new generation of the Altima, which will be wearing the 2013 model year in its name.
“Nissan has released a video clip and image offering a glimpse of the bold design of the all-new 2013 Altima sedan in advance of its world premiere at the New York Auto Show in April”, as the car manufacturer is saying in its official press release.
According to the automaker, the 2013 Nissan Altima has been described as being “innovative”, and previous photos of the model have shown an evolutionary styling, with a redesigned body. The new Altima is expected to come with an upgraded CVT transmission in order to boost the fuel economy, and a hybrid version, with a 2.5 liter supercharged four-cylinder engine, along with an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery, will also make its way onto the market.
The 2013 Nissan Altima is being assembled in Smyrna, Tenn. And Canton and Miss, while the engines for the model are being made at the company’s Decherd, Tenn. Plant. More details on the new generation will be announced at the New York Auto Show in April.
