Actually, I guess there is a little less. It looks like there is also a fog light along with the amber light at the bottom of the bumper, that isn't shown in the original spy shots.

eweezy, we have the same combo in my family, but I have a black 2007 Altima and the wife has a white 2007 Maxima SL. Would you agree, the Max is nicer to drive, but the Altima is more fun to drive?

yes i will agree to me the maxima rides so much smoother than the altima. and the maxima has horrible turning radius nearly impossible to do a u-turn.

i have spoken to a general manager for a nissan dealership and a sales associate both who work for different dealerships and both have told me the same thing that new altima looks similar to a lexus

Altima is Def more fun to drive. Maxima feels to big.

Don't like the ride in the Altima though.

Honestly I like the look of the new one, probably will not get it but I like it.

I'm liking the headlights and tails though, a big improvement.

Slightly less camo for sure. I actually love the tail lights, and does resemble more like the current gen Maxima. Headlights though, try may look more like the Versa in terms of shape, but at a quick glance (the camo may have an affect on this), it looks more like the third gen Altima's headlights.

It seems nothing came out of the LA Auto show. Might see details either next month, or early next year.

I'm sure the next Altima will be a slight evolution of the current design. They're not going to change it too much, as it was the best selling car in America for at least one month this year, forgot which month...

In any case, my next car WILL NOT have a CVT. I have one in my car now, and it's OK, but some of its quirks drive me nuts. I hate the two second delay between reverse and drive, and vis-versa. I paid the dealership over $100 to tell me that "there's nothing wrong", and that it's "in spec". I find this delay unacceptable, as there is no delay in the Murano's CVT.

Nissan has lost a very long time customer if they don't do something about this issue.

The Altima probably feels more fun to drive because it was lighter, but last time I checked, the Maxima was the smaller vehicle even if only by a little. The turning radii between the 2 are so bad because they are ginormus FWD platforms with room for a big V6 to be wedged in the front.

Eweezy, they probably told you that because they want you to come back and buy one. A Lexus-looking Altima means it may look better than the Maxima and Nissan wouldn't have that.

I think it's going to look like that corporate front end that all Nissans, save the Maxima, are starting to adopt. It looks like it's going to slim down a bit-probably in response to the comments about the 4th gen looking bloated as compared to the 3rd gen and the fact that they seem to be trying to get back to a performance-oriented image. Witness how much slimmer the 370Z is compared to the 350Z and the 6th gen Maxima compared to the 7th gen.

Unfortunately, it's going to be CVT because the "expert" reviews on this thing keep getting better so Nissan think they have a handle on this thing and they won't let it go. I'm just hoping that maybe, maybe the 5th gen Altima or 8th gen Maxima sprouts a manual option on the order sheet. I really don't care which one as not much more than some body panels and trim separate the 2 and I believe we'll continue to see that going forward. I do, however, see the 8th gen getting an AWD option. It will be CVT-only for that one for sure though.

I mean what's the odds that two men who work for different Nissan dealerships say the same thing.
