Default A Glimpse Of Nissanís Next Design Direction

Quote:




Possibly in hopes of reminding the assembled writers that the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is not the future of the brandís design, part of the CC launch was spent at Nissan Design North America where we were shown a clay model representing some of the design cues that could appear on future Nissan sedans. The designer we spoke to was careful to point out that this is neither an official concept nor ďthe next Altima,Ē but rather an exploration of the evolving Nissan design language. For example, the Z-carís ďboomerangĒ taillights, which have spread to vehicles like the Maxima, Juke and Murano CC are now found in the headlights of this unfinished clay model. The ďJ-lineĒ kick-up where the beltline meets the C-pillar is also on display. Otherwise, there are also some unusually organic, flowing forms that have yet to debut on a production Nissan. Iím not sure this next-generation design answers all the questions floating around about the Nissan brand, but itís an interesting look at the direction Nissan design is headed.

"Possibly in hopes of reminding the assembled writers that the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is not the future of the brand’s design,"...

Is that thing really that much of a failure? I know i thought it was a tragedy in motion, but I often find myself on the wrong side of popular opinion...

The beltline looks to build upon what they did on the Maxima (and Audi's A5), which I really like.
