Nissan sports concept
Nissan has unveiled this small sports concept at Shanghai, showcasing a joint design project between the firm’s global base in Japan and its Chinese offshoot.

Called Compact Sport Concept, the show car looks like it’s based on a Micra, with an overall length of just 3.482 metres and plenty of the small city car’s design cues, particularly around its front end. It’s 1.444 metres high, though, around 8cm lower than the regular hatchback.

The cabin features red lighting accents and mesh cloth that’s supposed to resemble the fabric used on sports shoes.

The concept is powered by a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol motor, developing 188bhp. But this surprising amount of potency may be dampened by the choice of a CVT transmission with a six-speed manual shift mode.

There are no plans for production at present - although Nissan’s stated role for the car - “designed for young customers in emerging countries” - hints that it could reach showrooms away from Europe.

Update!

NISMO Nissan Micra
There's no information yet on what's under the bonnet, but a tuned version of the standard car's 1.2-litre three-cylinder supercharged engine is a likely candidate.

A range of Nismo-developed aero parts have been added to the exterior. including a rear roof spoiler, a rear diffuser and a deeper front apron and side skirts. A modified grille, lightweight alloys and the same red white and black colour scheme as the Juke Nismo has been applied.

Inside, custom-designed sport seats and a sports steering wheel mark it out from the standard car. And to make sure the handling matches the agressive styling, lower and stiffened suspension has been fitted at each corner.
