Nissan Reveals Sexy Vmotion 2.0 Concept, Likely Previewing Next Altima

The new Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept was revealed in Detroit, with the company saying that it’s signalling the future sedan design direction they’re willing to take. All we have to say is hell yes Nissan, you take that direction, right now.

The front end is dominated by the V-Motion architecture as seen on models like the Nissan Murano and the Maxima but the new concept moves the design a bit further, forming a three-dimensional shape in its snout.

The rest of the body is being characterized by the fluid and muscular lines, the floating roof, the wrap-around rear glass and the rear suicide doors. The Vmotion 2.0 also features autonomous driving technology, with Nissan saying that the front emblem glows when the car is in ProPilot mode.

The concept is finished in a warm, silver paint with copper detailing, giving Nissan’s latest four-door concept a dynamic, yet subtle presence. “Copper is an emerging color trend in many industries, including fashion, product design and interior design. We wanted to introduce shades and hints of copper while mixing it with other metals such as satin silver and chrome,” said Shiro Nakamura, chief creative officer of Nissan.

Inside, the cabin hosts four separate seats while the dashboard features the ‘Gliding Wing’ design theme with its integrated instrument panel and infotainment system for both the driver and front passenger.

Nissan won’t tell us if the Vmotion 2.0 concept is indeed previewing the next Altima or not but measuring 4860 mm (191.3 in) long, 1890mm (74.4 in) wide and 1380mm (54.3 in) tall, it sure looks like that.

    That does indeed look like a new altima. Very nice looking I may add. I’m honestly just waiting on the new Infiniti qx concept reveal

  • WG

    I first thought it was a Lexus concept LOL. Nevertheless, this concept looks good and imo better than the lexus.

  • Name goes here

    Sexy? Not a bit. Ugly? Yessiree. During the Rogue Sport introduction, a photo of the Datsun 510 was shown. That 40 year old car looks better than anything Nissan sells today. Manufacturers need to go back in time for their styling queues. Aerodynamics is killing cars today.

      Says you, they don’t look bad to everyone one. Especially not this beauty. The new lexus models yes very ugly imo.

      I wish Mercedes and BMW does that thing that you just described.

    No mention at all of the new Frontier. Bummer.

  • Knotmyrealname

    Nice. Edgy. Fresh.
    A relief after seeing that Lexus thing.

  • Raf

    Wow if the next Altima looks anything like this color me impressed. Current Nissan products don’t do anything for me.

    • Jay

      The 2016 maxima concept was pretty good looking. I hope they don’t do the same to this for the production model.

  • Love it

  • AnklaX

    Nissan’s designers are really worthless. Just hire someone else, anyone else.

    • Jason Miller

      Like you? lol

      • Jay

        That works on two levels lol.

    That’s an amazing looking Altima! [Then again – it might be the Maxima – given how upscale it is] But there is one ‘angle’ that bothers me. It’s the one on the front doors. The shortest one that ends at a point very close to the front of the door. To my eye – it’s the wrong angle. And it shouldn’t end that close to the edge of the door. It should mirror the ‘C’ pillar better.

  • Matthijs

    Looks very good and modern. A bit overdesigned though and I hope the productionmodel won’t look just as ‘heavy’ as the Maxima

  • MultiKdizzle

    Best in show

  • fabri99

    Looks like a Peugeot to me. And a lot of IDx concept at the back.

  • IFDU

    Peep the IDx rear, I like it!

  • nastinupe

    When the new Altima looks better than the new Lexus LS.

  • donald seymour

    I hope not, because I do see cannibalism in the near future if that is the case.

  • Rich Money

    so many lines, so little style.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Cannibalism at it’s finest. And if that doesn’t happen, then disappointment at its finest.


  • smartacus

    mm yeah. Vomit ion is probably an appropriate moniker

  • TheBelltower

    Nissan/Toyota/Kia all have similar design styles. The Kia looks the best, this looks okay, the Lexus LS is overwrought, the Camry is just sad. All of them are busy and messy that lack function in their designs.

  • Subi-Rubicon1

    As soon as I saw this concept, I thought, “please Nissan, please don’t f**k it up like you did the Maxima!
