ROLLE, Switzerland (6 February 2012) - Nissan has revealed the first details of a head-turning hatchback concept which previews the company's next generation compact car, a mainstream B-segment contender to be sold alongside the Micra city car and innovative JUKE B-segment crossover.

Called INVITATION, the dynamic concept - which will be unveiled at this year's Geneva International Motor Show (8-18 March) - shows some of the innovation and excitement promised for the new model, which is due to be launched in Europe from 2013.

INVITATION

Design dynamism
INVITATION is 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 INVITATION a confident stance.

Inside, a refreshingly open cabin combines practicality and modernity with impressive levels of quality and purposeful technology features.

François Bancon, Deputy Division General Manager of Product Strategy and Product Planning Division, said: "The name we have given to this concept is self-explanatory… the key benefit of this compact car is to be inviting.

"It is inviting thanks to its sensuous exterior design and generous and comfortable interior space, cleverly packaged within compact overall dimensions. It is Nissan's invitation to buyers in the compact hatchback segment."

Class-leading performance and efficiency
Combining advanced engine technology, Nissan's acclaimed lightweight platform and an aerodynamically efficient body mean 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, INVITATION will compete with the top performers in the segment.

Advanced safety technology
But 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, INVITATION also incorporates the Nissan Safety Shield System, which interacts with the driving environment keeping the driver aware of what is happening around the car.

Conclusion
INVITATION's combination of energetic exterior style, thoughtful interior, advanced safety features and class-leading emissions, fuel economy and dynamic performance demonstrates Nissan's commitment to offering innovation and excitement to all car buyers, no matter what type of car they are looking to buy.

Given the requirements in Europe for height and other design elements of the front bumper and hood, it is a pretty good looking little car.

Our Juke, the one we own. Read a while back this might be last year for Frontier as the market has changed for mid sized, hope not. Have had the 2000, 04, 07, 10 and now 2011. All were 4 bangers till the 2011, went 6cyl 4x4 in case this was the last year.

Not the last year. We are getting ready to move Frontier and Xterra production from Smyrna, TN to Canton, MS. Not sure yet what redesign will be, but we start on it shortly after production moves here.
One of m coworkers just bought a Juke SV w/Sport pkg and manual tranny. If I were to buy a small car right now, that is what I would buy, but would like to see the NISMZO edition in production 1st. Or the Juke R!

Yea, its wifes car, have to remember to put it in norm or eco mode when I drive it or it gives me a super G's ride. Really moves and have gotten 35 mpg on some trips. Used to trade every 2-3 years but will keep this Fronty, might trade Juke in 2 or 3 if they come out with something cooler, but I doubt it.

Is the console in the Juke the only way it comes? I'm refering to it being painted?

Yes, but not all are painted red.
