nissan teases concept crossover ahead of frankfurt debut

Nissan on Monday released a teaser of a new crossover concept car that will be unveiled this month at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

The crossover, which Autocar suggested could be the next Z, could also be its next-generation Juke, which should be updated by 2017.

According to the automaker, the concept could be a “new way to feel driving excitement” (Nissan left it open to the reader) because some of us get hot and bothered when we see a crossover.

Whatever it’s named, the crossover will likely be built on Nissan’s CMF B global platform and could hold a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine under its hood.

The crossover will be shown later this month when the Frankfurt show opens on Sept. 15.

    New car designs make me sad. I'm serious.

    If it's the Juke say it's the Juke. The Juke is ugly in a strangely endearing way, I like that. Dancing around what this is, hinting that it's a crossover that could also be the new Z is BS and damaging to the Z besides. Another crossover, hmmmmm, how utterly underwhelming. Can someone send all the designers and product planners away and get some people who actually like cars in there? Seriously, there's way too much focus-groouping and social media monitoring claptrap going on. Get some some serious car people who design things right and say take it or leave it. For now, I'm leaving it.

    I don't care if it looks like the second coming of the Jag E Type. It's yet another Cross-Over.

    For now I will call it the N-Trail. Please let me know which day to eat a light breakfast.
