2009 Maxima – First Spy Shots

2009-NISSAN-MAXIMA-front The fine folks over at the Car Connection managed to get the first spy shots of the 2009 Nissan Maxima.  It’s snowing wherever these pictures were taken, so we can’t go crazy on details.  But what you can see is a much more aggressive stance – this car looks powerful, and it looks mean.  I don’t see the 4-door coupe lines that were rumoured, but I don’t miss them either.  At least in the looks department, this new Maxima goes back to it’s roots.  Maybe even redefines itself again, as a bit of a muscle car / sports car.  I can’t wait to see that front end uncovered…

No word on what’s under the hood.  Some version of the excellent VQ V6 will be there for sure, though no word on displacement.  Either the 3.5 or 3.7 surely.   In addition, a diesel option should be added for 2010  or 2011.  There is even a whisper of a Toyota-sourced hybrid powertrain, also possible for 2010.  We’ll see about that one.
