I like this.

Nissan's 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 Nissan's new design studio in suburban Detroit -- even though the vehicle was created at the automaker's design studio in Atsugi, Japan. The concept gets wide exposure next week during the New York auto show. (http://www.autonews.com/news.cms?newsId=11856)

It looks like the Tiida (http://www.nissan.co.jp/EN/lineup.html)

And this has a 1.8L.

Nice design. Not my kind of rims, but nice overall

I agree the rims could have been better.

Reminds me of the Focus, not bad at all.

Looks like the bastard child of a Focus and a Matrix. I think it's ugly. Fugly, even.

Assuming most of its features make it to production... Great, we now have factory rice. Oh well I can't wait to smoke one.

I'm a hatch hater, but the big c-pillar on that thing makes it look really good.

There interior pics of the car and on the dash under the rpm gauge there is a boost under it. So my guess is that its going to have a modified QR25DE engine from the Spec V and be running a turbo. but FWD would be my bet as to the drivetrain on it
