Following the 90 – second Super Bowl commercial which we showed you just a few days ago, Nissan has now confirmed that the vehicle that was spotted right before the end of the video is actually the long-awaited Nissan Maxima.

Despite the so many attempts conducted by the automaker to reveal as scarce information as possible (or not to reveal anything at all), the automotive – world enthusiasts have finally received a stable "yes" from Nissan, answering the countless questions which were circling around the new vehicle. Now in order to stabilize our shaken thoughts, there are two official images revealed, finally showing 2016 Nissan Maxima.

Nevertheless, the new Maxima could not surprise anyone. From what we can see, it looks very similar to the Sport Sedan Concept which was displayed last year. And this is not really something unexpected. The flowing lines form a smooth and simple shape. There is, though, a pinch of assertiveness that underscores the overall appearance of the car.

Among the things that are missing from the picture is the information about the power unit. If we base our expectations on the Nissan Sport Sedan Concept, Nissan Maxima could be fitted with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine, matched to a CVT and generating 260 HP (194 kW) minimum.

The premiere of the Nissan Maxima is going to be during the New York Auto Show in April.
