2013 Nissan Altima


This was sent to me by a reader, and looks to be the real thing.
Even though there seem to be a lot of weird stuff.
The grille, the fog lights look kind of strange.
Or maybe I'm just hoping the new Altima looks better.

From this, it looks like a blend of the current car, the Maxima and the Versa. It's not an original design.

The current one is still a nice car, so this will do just fine I'm sure.

More very soon.

That's the illustration (what I assume it to be) that has just been published in Car and Driver

The headlights don't seem to match the teasers Nissan recently sent in an email

How do you look at this and feel its the real thing? It's not. I've seen the real thing, and it is nice....very nice.

Kinda has the same front end look as the new lexus gs

This is a photoshop, in the previous spyshots the side crease is way above the handles and the new altima does not have the maxima headlights

I think the picture is legit. It certainly matches up with what we've been seeing...

Unfortunately, I think this is a major step backwards for the Altima's styling.

That isn't the real thing.

The current one has great reviews with both engines. I do not like its profile though, because its taillights make it look ordinary.

The headlights are incorrect. If you go to the Nissan website you'll see. This illustration is just a "best guess" attempt.

not it

Everyone else seems to have beaten me to it. I agree with everyone saying this is NOT it. Clearly this is a poorly done illustration. The headlights are wrong, the front bumper clip is wrong. Even the sides are wrong! A quick glance at the spy photos and recent teasers is all it takes to determine this is a fake! I'm disappointed in you Vince, you should have known better.

To the anonymous Nissan Employee. You are a faker and a liar. You are not a real Nissan Employee and this rendering is NOT the real car. You want proof? Easy just look at this photo (http://blogs.insideline.com/straightline/assets/2013_altima1.jpg) and compare it to the rendering... not even close! Shall I point out the ways? The headlights on the rendering are wrong! The character lines along the side are wrong! Those door strips are wrong! The front bumper is wrong! The real car is going to be real nice!

This rendering has been proven to be real on the newer post above. And it's very saddening...Nissan....I trusted you!
