Last week, The Motor Report mentioned that a Renault version of Nissan’s new Navara is possible, though it won’t simply be a Navara with a Renault badge on the nose. Report says the Renault truck will have its own Renault sheet-metal and Renault styling.
We’ve read about Mitsubishi’s agreement of replacing the Lancer with a C-segment car based on a Renault-Nissan model. Renault-Nissan’s current C-segment sedan offerings are the Fluence and Sentra/Sylphy. Which will underpins the next Lancer?
What if Nissan continue its venture with Suzuki and rebadge the Navara as new Equator. The Vitara’s front fascia actually fits quite well with the Navara.
Pualtan.org posted these renderings a month ago, accompanying the article about how Nissan needs a better (styled) B-Segment sedan to combat the better looking Honda City and Toyota Vios. I referred to the Pulsar when rendering these.
Most manufacturers like Alfa Romeo, Citroen, Fiat, Ford, Peugeot and Volvo are abandoning the 3-door C-segment hatchback. With the Pulsar, Nissan re-enters the European C-segment hatchback market. Will there be a (sportier) 3-door variant?
The Nissan Pathfinder, previously based on the outgoing Navara, now sits on a unibody chassis. This means Nissan has no competition with other body-on-frame SUVs. But Paultan.org reported that Nissan could possibly build a Navara-based SUV. On a personal note, this article was scheduled to go viral three hours ago with just the front rendering. […]
Well, the Nissan-Mitsubishi pickup joint venture is off – new Nissan Navara was developed separately from next-gen Mitsubishi Triton. Guess that means this to-be Navara-based Fiat is off too, and the Italian truck will be a rebadge of the self-developed Triton.
Mitsubishi and Nissan has been collaborating in many areas; micro car, commercial van and large sedan among few. It’s also confirmed the next Mitsubishi Triton was again be based on a Nissan. As with most Nissan-based Mitsubishi. I guess the Triton’s design will not differ too much from the Navara.
Images may not be re-posted without permission. These renderings were published in Road & Track a month ago, accompanying an article about the production IDXx that Nissan has green-lit.
I love the Nissan IDx concept and I hope it can enter production with limited change to its styling. And perhaps a 4-door version? Afterall there has been numerous rumours of Toyota making a 4-door GT86.
