Although no official details were mentioned on what the car is exactly, there’s reason to believe the car could be a preview to the next-generation Nissan Maxima which is due in the next couple of years.

As you can see by these images, first published by Autoblog, the concept showcases very modern design cues with LED-infused headlights, splashes of chrome, and body contours that seem to stem from the GT-R. There’s also blackened A-pillars and LED taillights which match the headlights.
