With the New York Auto Show one month away, 'tis the season to tease the next big thing. For Nissan, that "big thing" is the 2013 Altima. The Altima is by far Nissan's best selling vehicle here in the U.S., and the long-running sedan is in dire need for a fresh new face.

To tease the Altima, the creative types at Nissan decided to eschew the darkened or obscured photograph in favor of, well, a darkened and obscured video. Oh, and the video last all of eight seconds, and four of those ticks are reserved for the Nissan logo. The brief glimpse reveals a sky shot of the Altima that shows off some elegant curves and pronounced headlight fixtures.

The YouTube description adds that the new sedan boasts "a low, wide stance and sculpted profile that makes for quite a dynamic appearance." That's not a lot to go on, but Nissan hopes you'll hit the jump and watch the video anyway.

      It would be nice if this was eventually offered with a diesel engine...

      nice highlight of the moon roof. I guess no panoramic is offered.

      Wow, I'm so excited for this mainstream sedan that my nips are tingling. Not.

      Nissan moved 32k units in Feb, either a lot of them went to fleet or people just don't care what model year a car is in.

        just like 200. bad fuel mileage = good sales numbers

          Where are you getting the bad fuel mileage? The current Altima 2.5L still gets a respectable 32 mpg highway. Yeah, the class leaders get 35 mpg with a conventional gas engine, but 32 is hardly horrible.

          Also - the QR25 doesn't even use direct injection. Most of the new MPG leaders do, and they aren't far off the mark. I'm excited to see what happens when Nissan starts putting a new GDI system into their engines. They're already competitive power-wise.
