NISSAN has revealed the first details of a new hatchback concept which previews the company’s next mainstream B-segment (light) contender to be sold alongside the Micra city car and Juke crossover.
Called Invitation, the concept was unveiled this month at the Geneva Motor Show. It is based on the Micra platform and is due to be launched in the UK from 2013.
Invitation looks a lot like the current Honda Jazz from the front and along the sides.
Nissan claims the car has class-leading aerodynamics for enhanced efficiency.
The cabin has been designed featuring purposeful technology features. The car combines advanced engine technology, Nissan’s lightweight platform and an aerodynamically efficient body to achieve class-leading levels of fuel efficiency and emissions.
The concept car packs some of the most advanced technology ever seen in the B-segment, all of which is designed to ensure it is as safe as possible.
Among the features is Nissan’s advanced Around View Monitor (AVM) safety technology seen for the first time on a B-segment car, which makes reversing and parallel parking as stress-free as possible.
