Click above for a gallery of the Nissan Teana brochure.

The Scoopers of Cars have gotten their hands on a scanned brochure of the production version of the Nissan Intima concept, and it seems that in addition to getting a mass-market makeover, it will also be sporting a Teana badge when it goes on sale in Japan. The transition from concept to production has been uncharacteristically kind to the Teana, with the tightly drawn headlamps, plummeting C-pillar and elongated tail lamps surviving, but the suicide doors and 22nd century interior must have been scrapped due to feasibility issues. We'll get our first official taste of the Teana when it's finally revealed on April 20th at the Beijing Motor Show.

      Is it just me - or is anyone else getting a little sick of this front end - lack of imagination design from Nissan
      • 6 Years Ago
      in the tradition of stating a car looks like other cars...
      it looks like nissan went into their own parts bin. to me this looks
      like a homologation of maxima, G and altima.
      oh and agreeing with everybody else, it looks like they took the
      parts of the maxima, G and altima that i already didn't like.

      Man, that is the mother of all water-downs.
      The Intima was swoopy, classy, and looked expensive.
      The Teana looks like not much.

      That's fine because we'll never see it in N. America. Where would it slot in the Nissan/Infiniti line? Could it be a new I37? That would be a stretch and doesn't really fit in the Infiniti philosophy.

      I'm pretty sure I saw this car in a Wal-Mart parking lot, Lake Forest, Ca., 4/12/08. It looked somewhat like a big Altima, which got my attention. It had the Nissan badge and maybe a Teana label. It also had Infinity rims on it which I also thought was kinda different............

      This is just the right mix of ugly and luxury to dominate the Chinese market.

      I'm glad we are getting the 2009 redesigned Maxima in the U.S. as Nissan's flagship sedan and not this car. It's not the ugliest car I have seen lately (the hideous 2007 Chrysler Sebring still holds this title by a large margin), but it definitely is not one of Nissan's better efforts.

      Beaten with an ugly forest.

      From a design standpoint, Nissan has really been blowing it lately; the same goes for Infiniti. In my mind, there are two possible exceptions: the GT-R and the G coupe. The GT-R isn't the prettiest car, but taken as a whole it's an amazing piece of machinery. The new G coupe is a very tasteful evolution of the previous model. Why can't Nissan approach their other offerings with same philosophy?

      i thought the concept looked pretty decent, but this production version SUCKS, and the raised up body- gross, terrible stuff
      • 6 Years Ago
      Wow, glad to see Nissan took the Xerox machine over to Toyota. But at least this Nissan "Avalon" won't be on this side of the pond.

      all of nissan's sedans look the same. this one is "same old same old " with a twist of ugly
