Nissan has accidently shown off the 2013 Altima early.
The 2013 Nissan Altima has been spotted sans disguise in a video posted on the company's Japanese YouTube site. The short clip appeared in a video showcasing 30 years of the Nissan Technical Center. The video clearly shows the new Altima's design lines and front-end, including swooping bodywork and distinct, sharp new grille. Angular headlights give the 2013 Altima a more aggressive look.
The video in which the 2013 Nissan Altima appeared, spotted first by InsideLine, has since been pulled down from the company's site so there is no point in going back and looking for it. All that remains of the automaker's snafu are these two photos.
