If you were too hopped up on hot wing sauce to even notice that the 2016 Nissan Maxima made a cameo during the automaker's Super Bowl commercial, not to worry. The Japanese automaker just confirmed we'll be able to get a closer look at the newly designed full-size sedan when it makes its official debut at the upcoming 2015 New York International Auto Show in April.

Nissan's "4-door sports car" first made a surprise appearance during Nissan's "With Dad" Super Bowl spot, which focused on the relationship between a professional Nissan race car driver and his growing son. The father is seen working throughout most of the son's childhood, racing cool cars like the GT-R LM Nismo prototype. That race car made a surprise appearance in the commercial, but it wasn't the only unexpected debut that day. The dad then surprises his teenage son by picking him up in a shiny new 2016 Maxima sedan.

In the commercial, we could see that the Maxima's front end features the corporate “V-motion” grille design flanked by swept-back headlights. Two separate character lines are also new on the sides of the car, with a kink in the rear haunches and the same “floating roof” design of the Murano. We were also able to see the 2016 Maxima's rear end which displayed a “Platinum” badge along with taillights that look similar to the ones on the Sentra and Altima sedans.

We'll get a much closer look when the 2016 Nissan Maxima shows its face at the New York show in a couple months.
