Nissan's Killer B: Automaker takes aim at Scion with Sport Concept
DALE JEWETT | Automotive News
Posted Date: 3/17/05

MORE SPORT CONCEPT: NISSAN SPORT CONCEPT PHOTO GALLERY

DETROIT -- Nissan North America will bring a car smaller than the Sentra to its U.S. lineup by mid to late 2006. The new model, which draws a bead on Toyotas Scion lineup, will be based on the Nissan Sport Concept the company will publicly reveal at the New York auto show. The new model also will draw on the Scion tC sports coupe-like Nissan Azeal concept shown at Detroit in January.

Nissans Sport Concept hatchback is marked by wide body flares over 20-inch wheels, a rear spoiler and a sloping, angled Hood. The concept was shown Thursday night at Nissans new design studio in suburban Detroit -- even though the vehicle was created at the automakers design studio in Atsugi, Japan. The concept gets wide exposure next week during the New York auto show.

The concept, which has some resemblance to the Nissan Tiida sedan sold in Japan, is based on the automakers B-segment platform. Yet Nissan says it was designed to comfortably fit four passengers.

The concept measures 171.3 inches from bumper to bumper. That puts it within a couple of inches of the Scion tC coupe, and 6 inches shorter than the current Sentra. But the concepts 102.4-inch wheelbase tops the Sentras wheelbase by nearly 3 inches.

Inside, each passenger gets their own seat with large side bolsters, raised center section in the seat bottom and integrated, four-point seatbelts. The stereo system includes a large speaker and subwoofer mounted in the rear parcel shelf.

The Sport Concept is the third that Nissan has shown over the past 18 months offering different looks at injecting some style to its small-car lineup. The earlier concepts were the wagon-like Actic and the sporty Azeal coupe.

Get rid of the widebody, raise it up 4 inches and that's what will probably be released. Time and time again, they show a sweet concept and then scale it right back for production. Picture a 2 door matrix.

I think it looks pretty sweet, especially the interior

If they also had a coupe it'd look nice. I like it. It looks a lot like a Renault Clio.

Yeah, competes with the Scion xA. Doesn't look too bad. I like the xA, its my favorite of the Scions.


300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

I love hatchbacks, they are awesome. For some reason, the 96 model civic hatches are one of my favorites when they are looking nice. I would have one as my beater.
