Possible Spy Shot of 2009 Maxima
Although we'll be seeing the 2009 Nissan Maxima for real at the New York Auto Show next month, spy shooter Chris Doane of the "Priddy Pride" just snapped some shots of the new mid-size from Nissan. The new seventh-gen Maxima's supposed to be getting a severe facelift, and even a couple of upgraded powerplants by the time 2010 and 2011 roll around. Yup, you guessed it -- a Renault-Nissan diesel and a Toyota-derived hybrid will be two of the added options on the later model years. Oh, you didn't guess it? Well -- you should have -- because what's up with that humongous hood bulge? (UPDATE: We're told the hood bulge is just foam blocks under the camo.) The full less-than-detailed spy report after the jump.
