For the first time in Miami, the completely redesigned 2016 Nissan TITAN XD full-size truck will also be on display.

“At Nissan, we understand that buying a car is one of the most important financial decisions a family can make, which is why it is important for us to provide access to the latest models in our lineup to Miami International Auto Show visitors each year,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations U.S., Nissan North America. “Through interaction with product experts and ride and drive opportunities, Nissan fans, customers and potential customers can experience the full Nissan lineup in one afternoon.”

With the addition of the new SR model to the 2016 Altima line-up, Nissan is taking dead aim at one of the fastest growing areas of the mid-size sedan segment – sport variants. Among some competitors, the so-called “sport” grades account for nearly 40 percent of total sales. Altima already is one of the sportiest designs in the segment, however the company is taking a more Nissan-like approach, adding a level of true enhanced performance to go with the requisite larger wheels and spoiler. © Nissan

Auto show attendees are invited to interact with Nissan representatives on the auto show stand to learn more about the upgraded features in the Altima model lineup, including the sport SR grade, and the innovative offerings on the new TITAN XD.

At the show, Nissan also encourages consumers to get behind the wheel to experience the thrill of driving its latest models including Maxima, Rogue, Murano, Pathfinder, JUKE and the all-electric LEAF, during the Nissan Ride & Drive event from Nov. 12-15.
