Nissan Motor Philippines has revealed plans to launch a new vehicle at the 3rd Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS) to boost its current lineup in the country.

Nissan remains mum about the details of the new vehicle, saying only that it is a "superior sedan...poised to raise the bar on power and sophistication as it reflects a different dimension of hospitality, superb comfort and quiet, roomy interior."
