2009 Nissan Maxima Leaked Ahead of New York Debut

2009 Nissan Maxima
2009 Nissan Maxima

Just yesterday Nissan was kind enough to release a few teaser images of the seventh generation Maxima, but now courtesy of the web that is all over the world and extremely wide, we have the first full resolution shots ahead of its planned unveiling at the New York Auto Show tomorrow.

Ever since the Maxima was first introduced in1976, each new model has had a short lifespan of around 4 years (give or take a year). So Considering the current model has been on the market since 2004, we can put to bed any previous rumours that the 2009 Maxima will be a major facelift, what you see here is the all new model.

Full details, more high resolution press shots and of course live shots of our own will be released tomorrow when the 4-door sports car is unveiled, be sure to come back and check them out.

Not every car that has sketchy design features is accepted down the road. Just because something is odd now, doesn't mean I will like it in time. Think of some of the horrible designs that are still considered horrible...there are tons of them. In my opinion, the lights are not nice at all, and I don't think time will change that. They're taking risks, I'll give them that...

Listen ... ass!! every year cars get rated by JD to see how well they are on daily base life and so on ... one area of judgment is are easy it is to see the drivers intentions does the car give to other drives like //can u see from the left side of the driver is going to turn right and so on... Listen ass i am studying in automotive design ...so these little things matter .. who are u to tell me shut up!

rear looks like civic coupe.. and that headlight looks similar with Toyota Venza's rear lamp.. but it's surely better than old one. It seemed not existed because of Altima..

yeah....i concur, i'm not sure if they are trying to emulate the GTR, but for angular angry designs, you gots to think trapazoids....trapazoids...overall though, it adheres to nissan's current design theme: paunchy...some might say muscular, but protein shakes ain't the only way to get buff...

I'm gonna stick my neck out and say I think the lights are interesting and quite cool, and that combined with the muscular sides its an unusual and handsome car. come on you guys, one minute you're slating the far eastern companies for lack of originality and then something a bit unusual and you lay into that : p

Damn! Was up with those lights? This car is even uglier than a Lada 4x4 come on Nissan, you can do better than that!!!. The Nissan Teana looks better

The dashboard looks pure Infiniti. I like that its not just another basic-looking design, but, I need to see it in person. It would also be great if they went rear drive with the Maxima!

a pity they didnt define the rear as a neat 3-box sedan, it's just messy, short and vulgar.. in contrast, the front end might not be beautiful but it's really original and FRESH, despite that infiniti hood and audi a5 inspired sensusous side bulges
