Up to now, two teaser images of the new compact SUV have been released. These images unveil that the vehicle will feature a honeycomb grille and LED taillights.

According to the Japanse auto manufacturer, the new compact SUV is going to be “a feature-rich premium offering with stylish design for a strong and dynamic road presence.” The vehicle will be underpinned by the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s CMF-A+ platform which also supports the HBC compact SUV and the Renault Triber. The new model will be designed by the design team in Japan. Nevertheless, as much as 98% of the parts will be localized to keep the price as aggressive as possible. The manufacturing process will be implemented in Nissan’s plant in Oragadam, Tamil Nadu.
