Citing its success with the other vehicles in its crossover lineup, namely the Juke, Qashqai, and X-Trail, Nissan posed this obscured question in its press release which accompanied the teaser image: “So can Nissan continue to innovate and move the bar higher? What if Nissan created a new way to feel driving excitement?”
A new way to feel driving excitement? Speculation on what this concept preview is varied with some claiming it to be the next entry in the ‘Z’ range while another direction hints at the next generation Juke. We may even be looking at a possible rival to the Honda HR-V, Ford EcoSport, and Mazda CX-3. No further details were divulged by Nissan at all.
Back to the teaser image, where we are greeted by the front end of the car that features Nissan’s latest design language, notably from the Murano and Maxima.
A bit of image tweaking sheds a little more light at what we might be looking at and it certainly appears to be a radical concept with very thin and shapely headlights, aggressive front fascia, and an interesting looking roof design.
We’ll have to wait until Nissan fully reveals the crossover concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
