Nissan decided to unveil a new concept car at the 2014 North American International Auto Show, a.k.a. Detroit Auto Show, and brought the Sport Sedan Concept. As expected, the new concept car comes signature design aspects that will be adapted on the future Nissans.
The new Sport Sedan Concept comes with the new V-Motion front aspect, seen also on the Resonance and Friend-Me concepts that were introduced in 2013. Moreover, the new Sport Concept features the “floating” roof and boomerang-shaped headlights and taillights.
The exterior of the concept is marked by low, wide proportions, with a lowered hoodline and reduced ground clearance.
The “V-Motion” movement of the front end flows from the dramatic chromed grille up through the hood. Still, the front end also incorporates the large LED boomerang headlights, slopped windshield and a deeply scooped front fascia. The side view is dominated by custom 21-inch aluminum-alloy wheels wrapped in 275/30R21 tires.
The rear features large chrome trunk accent and wide, deeply scooped rear fascia. The exterior is also highlighted by the unique “Strad AMber” paint, inspired by the classic violins. The interior comes with design features that will be used on future Nissans.
According to Nissan, the edgy and geometric look of the interior was inspired by modern furniture, apparel and accessories. Under the hood, the front-wheel drive Sport Sedan Concept comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine rated at 300+ hp and mated to a sport-tuned Xtronic CVT transmission.
