now the Nissan Sports Concept is coming to Sydney
3rd October, 2005
The Nissan Tiida Sport Concept, which will make its Australian debut at the 2005 Australian International Motor Show, is the latest in a series of dynamic performance/youth concept vehicles including the Nissan Actic and Nissan AZEAL concepts produced by the company.
The Tiida Sport Concept is a dynamic three-door hatchback with a dramatic four-seat interior. It offers the look and feel of a sports tuned car, yet is conceived as an affordable, attainable vehicle for buyers entering the new car market for the first time.
Nissan has a strong global line-up of compact enthusiast vehicles, including the March, Cube, Tiida, and new Note, and, in the Nissan 350Z, one of the world's most desirable sports cars. The new Tiida Sport Concept fuses the best of both worlds.
The exterior of the Tiida Sport Concept combines shapes and forms that are both geometrical and mechanical in feel, providing a sense of acceleration and kinetic energy.
Its athletic roofline is marked by a large rear roof-mounted spoiler, while its bold surface composition, deep front spoiler and side sills, and large wheels and tyres provide an animated, video game-like stance.
The body construction utilises both metal and carbon-fibre composite components. The 20-inch six-spoke aluminium-alloy wheels feature a machined and lustrous paint finish surface treatment. The Tiida Sport Concept's headlights and rear combination lights utilise small lamps with multi-layered reflectors.
The interior of the Tiida Sport Concept is designed to fit four adults comfortably, yet with an emphasis on the front two seats - with every element of the cockpit existing to enhance the vehicle's engaging driving experience.
The deep, body-wrapping front bucket seats are covered in Wolf Grey leather with double-layered pearl suede inserts, feature formed head restraints and 4-point seat belts.
The instrument panel includes tachometer, gauges and a distinctive centre cluster. The Tiida Sport Concept interior also offers a three-spoke steering wheel and solid-appearance centre console with the hand brake lever integrated into the console lid.
Independent rear seats, also covered in a combination of leather and suede, offer true four-place seating. Other rear passenger features include centre console-mounted support grips and a large blue-cone speaker and woofer located in the rear parcel shelf.
The Tiida Sport Concept can be seen on the Nissan stand in Hall 3 from 14h-23rd October.
