Nissan has unveiled the 2014 Teana, ahead of its Chinese launch next month.

Looking far more refined than its predecessor, the Teana, which is essentially a rebranded Nissan Altima, features sweptback headlights and a prominent grille. We can also see a full-length character line, wraparound taillights and chrome trim.

Unfortunately we don't get a very good look at the cabin, but the model appears to feature leather seats, metallic accents and dark wood trim. The car also has an infotainment system and "zero gravity" seats which promise to minimize fatigue on long trips.

Power is provided by a new QR25DE engine that is connected to an Xtronic continuously variable transmission. Performance specifications were not released, but the company says the powertrain will deliver "responsive acceleration and excellent fuel economy."
