Nissan has unveiled the first details of Invitation head-turning hatchback concept which previews the Nissan’s new generation compact car contender to be sold alongside the Micra and Juke crossover in Europe. The Nissan Invitaion concept will be revealed at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show on March.
The Nissan Invitation concept comes with an energetic design, bringing fresh style, innovation and excitement to the mainstream market. The clean fluidity of the silhouette hints at its dynamic potential and showcases class-leading aerodynamics for enhanced efficiency.
The side of the car is dominated by a distinctive character line, known internally as the ‘Squash Line’, which adds a powerful dynamism to its profile with distinctive sculpted front and rear wings giving Nissan Invitation a confident stance.
Inside, a refreshingly open cabin combines practicality and modernity with impressive levels of quality and purposeful technology features.
Combining advanced engine technology, Nissan’s acclaimed lightweight platform and an aerodynamically efficient body mean Nissan Invitation achieves class-leading levels of fuel efficiency and emissions. Nissan is aiming for an ultra-low CO2 emission target of under 100g/km for the best model and with all versions eligible to wear Nissan’s Pure Drive badge.
At the same time, responsive agile handling will ensure that when it comes to driving dynamics, Nissan Invitation will compete with the top performers in the segment.
But Nissan Invitation is more than just a great looking car that’s fun and frugal to drive. The concept packs some of the most advanced technology ever seen in the B-segment, all of which is designed to ensure the car is as safe as possible.
Among the features is Nissan’s advanced Around View Monitor (AVM) safety technology – seen for the first time on a B segment car – which makes reversing and parallel parking as stress-free as possible. In addition, Nissan Invitation also incorporates Nissan Safety Shield Technologies, which interact with the driving environment keeping the driver aware of what is happening around the car.
