The first teaser of the The New Nissan Qazana was a simple sketch which pointed our imagination to expect a 2 door crossover with suicide doors and wide wheel arches as well as huge wheels. Since the sketch we have been eagerly awaiting the launch of the new Nissan.
Nissan says that the significance of the Qazana concept should not be 'underestimated.' While it may look too radical for a production vehicle, Nissan says that a small crossover is on the way and the Qazana points to that very future. Nissan says the five-door crossover will lead to a production model in relatively short order, with assembly beginning in early 2010.
Qazana reflects future Nissan in this class which, apparently, will not be limited only one hatchbacks. Nissan Qazana is a small crossover which at length concedes only 4 centimetres Kia Soul (4060 mm against 4105), and on width (1785 mm) and height (1570 mm) and at all almost does not copy Korean car. Qazana use many elements of design with rounded, such as the Murano and Qashqai. This can be seen on the curve and ban Fender bonnet.
We're not entirely sure if (and/or how) the big-fendered, narrow-greenhouse look will translate to Nissan's planned production compact crossover, and we're quite sure that the rear-hinged suicide doors won't see showrooms when the Qashqai receives a kid brother. For now, we're enjoying its novel lighting (including the pair of crazy large front driving lamps and the fender-ridge daytime-running lamps, along with well-integrated boomerang tail lamps) and red-velvet cake interior.
This Qazana concept, could signal a complete new direction for Nissan's next B-segment car. Ultimately, if the company is really brave, its production version might replace the B-segment Micra altogether.
Motorcycles were the inspiration for the inside of the Qazana, as is especially apparent in the center console. Designed to offer accessible, practical family transportation, NV200 is a three row vehicle, with sliding side doors for easy access to the rear. All the doors are electrically operated and for safety reasons the rear pair can only be activated once the fronts have been opened. The roomy interior can be configured differently to accommodate up to four occupants and is designed to be flexible, comfortable and convenient, with lots of storage space, which is essential for families on the move.
The Nissan Qazana looks like nothing else on the road - and, in this case, that's a good thing. Created by Nissan Design Europe in London and said to be inspired by beach buggies and motorbikes, the four-passenger Qazana looks playful and entertaining.
Designed to be a compact but high-riding city SUV, the production version of this concept car will be manufactured at Nissan's Sunderland plant in the UK in 2010.
