Nissan debuts new Xmotion SUV concept

With vehicles like the Juke and Murano, Nissan has tried to blaze a trail away from traditional two-box SUV/CUV designs, and that's again the case with the new show auto. The rear features some of the red accents from the roof dipping down above some tight rear lights and a similar swooping shapely design.

A more extreme look than the IMx Concept we saw in Tokyo previous year, the Xmotion SUV gets jarring angles on every surface, a new take on Nissan's Boomerang lights and V-Motion grille, and a set of alloys which look like something from Mad Max. Overall, the entire interior of the XMotion is aimed towards depicting a Japanese river, atop which sit traditional Japanese elements such as the bamboo and lace-like seating.

The Xmotion Concept is a glimpse into the future of Nissan's design language, including an especially aggressive take on the brand's signature "V-Motion" grille.

The metal 21-inch wheels include a bold look and the tyres are laminated on rather than fitted for the ultimate connection between wheel and tarmac. He said that it has a little of American utility and Japanese aesthetic craftsmanship in its design.

Inside, the Xmotion adopts a "4+2 layout", three rows of two seats each, the back row clearly being sized more for pets and kids than grown adults.

Inside, the Xmotion concept's crafted interior design symbolizes a Japanese landscape, honoring Nissan's roots while incorporating advanced graphic user interfaces and autonomous driving technologies.


The doors open jaw-like, with the aperture sans centre pillar to reveal an equally-dramatic interior with three rows of side-by-side individual seats. From the side and rear angles, I see a lot of Volvo XC40 inspiration - and that's a good thing.

The cedar-wood veneers used on the console and IP came from one tree in Japan's Yamagata prefecture. "In this way, the koi acts as a storyteller to connect human and machine", Nissan says.

One cool feature of these screen is that graphics can move between the screens on the centre console and the ones on the dashboard. The center console, interestingly, is also made out of wood.

Accessing the Xmotion requires fingerprint authentication.

Nissan has also envisaged the Xmotion to be fully autonomous so that passengers can take full advantage of its Koi digital concierge which can provide the user with information of nearby attractions and facilities.

Indeed, there are plenty of high-tech features on the Xmotion, including hand and eye-motion sensors that are used to operate the crossover's infotainment and climate control systems, as well as the digital displays that run the width of the instrument panel and which are divided into seven distinct zones.
