Two new concepts based on the Nissan Qashqai and X-Trail have been revealed at the Geneva motor show.

Inside the Qashqai Premium Concept is soft white Nappa leather seating with a quilted finish. Golden copper weave and carbonfibre is also used throughout, with black satin chrome and gloss black used on the steering wheel and gearlever.

In contrast, the X-Trail Premium Concept model gets a matt white exterior finish. The front skid plate is finished in golden copper, while the bonnet and roof get matt black carbonfibre. The body cladding is painted gloss black, and 20in alloy wheels are fitted.

On the inside, tan leather and Ultrasuede seats with a ‘cloud effect’ design can be seen, with black carbonfibre and matt chrome black finishings to the dashboard and door trim.

There are no plans for the models to make production.
