Base on these spy photos, I think the new 2013 Altima will be similar to this Nissan Teana. Do you agree?
The front grille, the headlights...
The taillights, the rear quarter windows

Unfortunately, it does look a bit like it. Too me, Nissan did not do enough then to change it. When they went from the 3rd to 4th generation in 07, the design was evolutionary and not revolutionary, like it was back in 02 when they went from the 2nd to 3rd generation Altima. I would have expected Nissan to do more and make the 5th generation revolutionary again as the Altima needs a nice kick in the butt to keep up with the designs coming up on the Sonata, Malibu, and Camry.

I agree but I would classify the new Camry as a moderate change like the Altima.

The 2013 Ford Fusion has a lot more interesting style and technology. I think Ford may really overtake the Altima this time.

Wow, I hope's that not the new Altima b/c it looks a lot like the Maxima's bodystyle to it. I hope Nissan doesn't hurt the Maxima like they did back in 2002 when they brought out the 2nd Gen Altima design which was better than the Maxima.
It looks like Nissan is not making these care appear as distinctive as they are now.

Yeb, Maxima + M curve line.
#9 of 111 Anyone Drive the '13 Altima Yet?

Had a chance to test drive the 2013 Altima today and came away very impressed. I found it to be quiet and solid with a good ride handling balance. Steering was quick with decent road feel and the seats were excellent. Overall, for me, it was clearly better than the Camry, Malibu, Sonata, or Passat. The dealer only had a 4 cylinder version, so there was no opportunity to try the 3.5L. Anyone else out there who has given one a try?
