Nissan adds a touch of glass as concept car aims to resonate with market
Posted on: 30th Jan 2013
Nissan has unveiled a futuristic new crossover - the Nissan Resonance concept.
The new concept model made its world debut today at the 2013 North American International Auto Show.
The front exterior design shows the V-Motion, which starts from the front grille, moves through the bonnet and resonates with the iconic boomerang shaped headlights.
The body is strengthened by 'powerful surfaces and provocative lines' aimed at giving the crossover a very advanced yet spacious impression.
An open glass panoramic roof gives passengers is aimed at giving light and space for passengers .
The roof's unique "floating" design is created through the use of the thin, steeply raked A-pillars, a large full-length glass panel and flowing D-pillar design.
Other exterior features include a tinted acrylic grille with Satin Chrome accents and 22-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
Inside, the designers set about creating a "VIP lounge," with light, buttery leather and premium-stitched seats.
"The Resonance interior reflects the enlightened modernity of today's crossover buyer, who values an amazing experience over traditional indulgence" said Nissan's Francois Bancon.
"The architecture of the cabin is open and structured. Like the exterior, it redefines and pushes the segment beyond convention."
As this is a concept car, Nissan will launch studies before deciding whether or not to bring it into full production.
