NASHVILLE, Tennessee — The Nissan Sport Sedan Concept, which previews the 2015 Nissan Maxima, will make its world debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, the automaker confirmed.

A teaser photo of the concept shows a family resemblance to the redesigned 2014 Nissan Rogue.

Nissan said the Sport Sedan Concept "previews a new energetic design direction" and amplifies the automaker's approach of "applying sports car principles to a sedan." The wraps come off the concept on January 13.

This is not the first teaser image of the 2015 Maxima. Nissan showed sketches of the upcoming concept at an August event for international journalists.

At the time, Nissan's global design chief Shiro Nakamura described the concept's design as "energetic and modern with a floating roof."

He added: "It is very coupe-like but it still has lots of room on the inside. I think it is a nice proportion with a very strong design intention."

The Nissan Maxima competes with the Acura TL, Chrysler 300, Ford Taurus and Volvo S60, among others.

The 2014 Detroit Auto Show also marks the North American debut of the Nissan IDx Freeflow and IDx Nismo concepts, which were unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Show.

Edmunds says: The Nissan Maxima gets a gutsy new look that should hold great appeal for sport sedan shoppers.
