2016 Nissan Maxima Previewed in Super Bowl Commercial

NASHVILLE, Tennessee —  Car shoppers got a treat during the 2015 Super Bowl game as Nissan took the wraps off the redesigned 2016 Nissan Maxima — but just for a few seconds.

The 2016 Maxima is expected to debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show and arrive at Nissan dealerships later this year. Pricing has not been announced.

Nissan offered no details about the new Maxima, except to say in a statement that a "future Nissan sports sedan appears at the end of the commercial, with details to be announced in the future."

The Maxima teaser revealed a striking exterior redesign of the car, which will feature a curvaceous look with a dramatic hood and sleeker headlights. An unusual kick-up at the C-pillar adds a distinctive touch to the car's silhouette.

Nissan's upcoming 24 Hours of Le Mans challenger, the Nissan GT-R LM Nismo, also made its world debut in front of more than 100 million viewers during the commercial, which is dubbed "With Dad."

In the meantime, Nissan said the 2014 Maxima will "see an extended model year and continue to be available into 2015."

Edmunds says: Nissan ends a long advertising drought at the Super Bowl with a much talked-about commercial that packs a lot of emotion and product surprises.
