The first press day of the North American International Auto Show is winding down but that hasn't stopped Nissan from unveiling their new Sport Sedan concept.
Designed to preview an upcoming production model, the Sport Sedan concept has a "V-Motion" front fascia with a chrome grille that is flanked by boomerang-shaped LED headlights. The concept also has a Strad Amber exterior with a "floating" roof and 21-inch aluminum wheels.
The two-tone interior is undeniably elegant as it features quilted leather seats, a sport steering wheel and metallic trim. We can also see a floating center stack and a futuristic infotainment system.
A 3.5-liter V6 engine resides under the hood and produces more than 300 bhp (223 kW). Performance specifications were not released but Nissan confirmed the engine is connected to a sport-tuned Xtronic continuously variable transmission.
According to Nissan Executive Vice President Andy Palmer, "The Sport Sedan Concept shows a new, highly emotional and energetic design direction that takes Nissan's legendary approach of applying sports car principles to a sedan to the next level." He added, "The Sport Sedan Concept captures that essence with authentic sports car design and proportions."
