The Nissan Qazana which was revealed at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show is a funky all-wheel-drive soft-roader which provided a glimpse into the future for Nissan styling.

Nissan has hinted that the styling of the Qazana could provide the basis for a small crossover vehicle which would slot in under the Qashqai in the model line up.

"The Qazana concept is an intelligent, all-wheel drive crossover which is masculine, agile, lean, and designed for the tough city streets. Our team at Nissan Design Europe in London realised this image with the motif of a modern day beach buggy and four-seat motorbike," explains Atsushi Maeda, Studio Chief Designer, Nissan Design Europe.

The curvaceous and rounded forms which make up the exterior styling of the Nissan Qazana are refreshingly unique and give the concept a friendly and fun persona. At a time when many vehicles display aggressive and sinister styling elements the designers at Nissan have chosen to imbue the Qazana with a bubbly and inviting character. However the designers have also managed to successfully create a vehicle which appeals to both sexes and different age groups.

Although it appears at first glance to be a two-door coupé, the Qazana has a further pair of rear-hinged half doors to ease access to the rear seats. All the doors are electrically operated and for safety reasons the rear pair can only be opened once the front doors have been opened.

The interior of the Nissan Qazana concept has been designed to mirror the exterior design thanks to a clever interplay between hard and soft materials. Rather than being completely enveloped in leather for example, elements of the lightweight carbon fibre seat structure are on permanent view, appearing to have 'broken through' the covering. The centre portion of the backrests features a mesh material, allowing fresh air to circulate around the occupants.

Like the seats, the metal sections of the centre console seem to have forced their way through the leather covering while the internal door-frame is part exposed so that the door pull appears to be hewn from solid metal. Adding further to the mechanical feel of the interior, the shape of the centre console and armrest has been inspired by the fuel tank and seat of a sports motorcycle.

The dashboard is dominated by a centrally mounted screen. As well as doubling as a navigation display, it will deliver vital information relating to Nissan's next generation fully electronic ALL MODE four-wheel drive with torque vectoring system and other advanced technical processes found on board, including integrated communications systems. Using an intuitive touch-screen interface, the driver will be able to adjust the air-conditioning and other key vehicle settings.
