An updated Nissan Maxima is on the way. Last redesigned for the 2016 model year, Nissan’s upscale sedan looks to get a significant refresh for 2019. Full details will come during the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show in November, but Nissan released an image today of the car’s front quarter.
The Maxima’s V-Motion grille appears a little deeper and more angular than on the 2016-18 car, though it stops well short of the redesigned 2019 Altima’s ground-to-hood style. The outboard foglights sit in taller portals, while the headlights carry the 2016-18 shape but overhauled elements within, with elongated piped lighting under a string of jewel-like headlights similar to what Acura does. The front bumper no longer encloses the bottom grille opening; a separate unit now forms the lower boundary.
