Nissan has revealed a new B-segment small concept ahead of next month’s Geneva Motor Show, dubbed, curiously, the Invitation.
Nissan says the sharply styled Invitation showcases class-leading aerodynamics, contributing to hybrid-rivalling fuel efficiency and emissions. The most fuel-efficient variant of the all-new production car will emit less than 100 grams of CO2 per kilometre, roughly translating to fuel economy below 4.2 litres per 100km.
Nissan promises the car’s responsive and agile handling will make it competitive with the top performers in the segment.
On the styling front, the concept shares little with its stablemates. It features a version of the wide grille worn by the Juke and the new Pulsar, but its sharp profile and futuristic lighting shares more with the 370Z coupe than any of the brand’s passenger cars.
The interior is modern and spacious, with the high-tech instrument cluster and touchscreen centre console juxtaposed by the uncluttered steering wheel and simple console surface between the front seats.
Technology available with the Invitation will include Nissan’s Around View Monitor, which uses exterior cameras to display views from all around the vehicle on the in-dash monitor.
Watch for more details to come at Geneva early next month.
