Teaser shot reveals glimpse of Nissan’s baby crossover SUV
11 February 2009

This is the first picture of the Nissan Qazana concept, the small SUV crossover due to be unveiled at the Geneva show in March.

The picture doesn’t reveal much about the Nissan Qazana’s shape, but the exaggerated styling of the flared wheel arch confirms that the Nissan concept will have distinctive SUV-style looks.

The five-door Nissan Qazana concept car “hints at the direction” of the new small crossover vehicle that the company will begin to trial-build early next year.

The road car, which has yet to be named, will go into full production at the end of 2010. The production Nissan Qazana will take the place of the Micra at Nissan's Sunderland plant, where it will be built alongside Nissan’s other SUV crossover, the Qashqai.

Nissan has enjoyed great success with the Qashqai, attracting buyers of conventional hatches such as the Volkswagen Golf and the Ford Focus with its raised driving position, semi-SUV looks and hatchback practicality.

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
