Nissan prepares Sentra coupe
It seems Nissan has been at the drawing board as they are ready to dish out a variety of refreshers and new models. There will be a redesigned version for all of the Versa subcompact 4- and 5-door models, the Sentra compact sedan, and the Altima midsize coupe, plus there will be a new sedan in the next two years. Nissan is also stating that they will be bringing out some more new models, but these big plans do not include a revival of the old 240SX. According to Nissan, the car will not sell on the market and an estimated number of 30,000 units a year is not convincing.
So, instead of coming out with a totally new model, Nissan plans on creating a coupe version of the current Sentra. Future Nissans have to be ’high-volume and high-share kind of products", he says. "I’m not looking to fill every niche, every opportunity. If I let my product planners go, they could come up with 15 other cars we should have."
As for the next generation Altima, it will be radically changed. Dealers have already seen the shortened version and seem to be impressed: "They’re probably more excited than I’ve ever seen them."
