Following a quick reveal during the Super Bowl, the 2016 Maxima has returned in a couple of official images.

Described as being a "4-door sports car" the next generation Maxima is an "all-new" car which will premiere in April at the New York Auto Show. The striking styling is basically a toned down version of the Sport Sedan concept and as you can see the 2016MY Maxima has a rather interesting profile with a "floating" roofline and the corporate V-motion front end.

Nissan was coy on releasing technical specifications but there are some reports indicating the model will be powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine outputting more than 260 bhp (194 kW).

We'll know for sure on April 1st when the new Maxima will debut at the New York Auto Show.
