The Nissan Extrem Concept has been revealed in Brazil as an urban crossover based on the Micra platform.
The Extrem is, say Nissan, an ‘Urban Rally Car’ designed to be a tough street fighter and penned by Nissan Design in San Diego specifically for the Brazilian market.
Based on the underpinnings of the Micra, the Extrem is 3850mm long and 1760mm wide and is, although it’s hard to judge in the photos, a chunk smaller than the Nissan’s current smallest crossover, the Juke.
Although the Extrem seems to be a mish-mash of Nissan styling cues it’s an appealing look; a proper little urban warrior on a smaller scale than usual, but is also has new elements – like the floating C-pillar and wraparound glass – that look new.
Power for the Extrem comes from Nissan’s DIG-T turbo 1.6 litre petrol engine and could be offered with a choice of FWD or 4WD with torque vectoring.
Nissan say the Extrem is just a concept, but with its funky looks and compact size it looks an ideal candidate to slip in below the Juke and boost sales of Nissan’s Micra range, which has been struggling.
