Report: The Nissan Altima and Sentra to get more dramatic designs

Nissan is preparing to redesign its Altima and and Sentra, which isn’t a bad thing since they’re just about as exciting to look at as a roll of bread. And to cure the Altima and Sentra of their unremarkable aesthetics, the word on the street is that both sedans will be aesthetically redesigned to appeal to more customers, according to The Car Connection.

The outlet recently spoke with Nissan’s design chief, Shiro Nakamura at the Paris Auto Show. And there, The Car Connection also learned the Altima will be the first to receive a visual update for its mid-cycle refresh in either 2016 or 2017. While the next Altima gets inspiration from the incoming 2015 Nissan Murano and the Sports Sedan Concept from the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year, the Sentra is expected to be styled more like the Nissan Pulsar in Europe.

However, these updates would merely be updates rather than a complete and total overhaul, which is further saved for the completely redesigned, next generation models.
