So where are we at with the 2013 Nissan Altima? We've seen an overhead shot teased, along with a peek at its front fascia. We've seen a shot of the car leaked in a promotional video, and of course, our spy photographers snapped the car in a conventional disguise, but got a good look at its interior in the process.

Now Nissan comes with this, a brief video that shows off the Altima's new hind end. Like most every sedan on the market these days, it looks like the fourth-best-selling vehicle of 2011 will be getting a bit of a Bangle butt. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) We do get the first really good view of the Altima's taillights, which have a bit of Lexus spindle thing going on.

We'll have to wait until the New York Auto Show on April 4-5 to see the full reveal, though we wouldn't put it past Nissan to eke out another shot or two of the car before then.

Click on the image above to enlarge, then feel free to see the very brief video yourself below.

      The rear brake lights are illuminated in a circle, similar to the 3rd and 4th gen Altima. Probably going with the traditional approach, albeit in a subtle way. Not bad!

      Man, I thought they'd never get rid of those taillights (not that there was anything wrong with them).

      The only thing I need to see at this point is what kind of ground clearance the new model has. My 2008 Altima bottoms out on gum wrappers and it is annoying!

      "we wouldn't put it past Nissan to eke out another shot or two of the car before then" Nissan's website tells you the dates for the next pics (3/22 and 3/29), just like it did for the last three pics.

      Just because they come out with this teaser crap does not mean you are obligated to write a post on it Autoblog. You know we hate it and don't care, yet you still take the bait and play right into their scheme for more coverage. What if a company decided to release a new teaser for their latest lame beigemobile every day for 3 months. Would you write 93 posts? If so, you are the automakers' b|tch, they are basically getting free advertising out of you with this BS.

        Autoblog is entitled to post whatever the hell they want to post, be it car-related or not. Just because they aren't posting something you are interested in, doesn't mean you are obligated to read it - Nor does it warrant a reply from you. Apparently you have nothing better to do than b*tch about an article that isn't tailored to your liking. Don't like it? Tough; make your own blog.

      Nothanx! The Malibu and Fusion should have nothing to fear. And nobody cares for your stupid teaser's, Datsun. If you're going to tease a car, it should be something amazing. Nothing amazing about a Datsun Altima. Unless...you think rental cars are amazing.

      Probably a concept.

      From every picture I have seen, it seems to be nothing new, and already looks old, outdated, and like models they have had out for 5-10 yrs.

        It's because they are the automakers who are creating the buzz. There have been plenty of other automakers who have been in the spotlight in the past and there will be others in the spotlight in the future as they make new waves in the auto industry.

      It's like watching those appliance commercials where they try to make it exciting.
