Taking a look at Nissan’s sales figures for the European regions, you’d think they have one of the best lineups on the market. But that’s simply not true. At the bottom of the range sit a couple of city cars, followed by four crossovers, some sportscars and a few 4x4s. The compact car, the bread an butter of Europe, is conspicuously missing from the list.
To secure its position in the market, they desperately need a volume hatchback to take on the VW Golf. There’s no shortage of C-segment sedans out here, but not an all-rounder hatchback. This could very well be it!

The five-door Nissan is already scheduled to enter production at their Sunderland plant in Great Britain. The styling will be inspired by the Invitation concept and it’s belied they will throw everything at it, including the auto parking systems and other toys, like navigation and active braking.

The details are sketch at the moment, and we still don’t know what sort of name will be used. Mind you, there’s also the Tiida hatchback that entered production in 2004, the Versa name, Sunny for the sedan, Almera and Pulsar in Australia. Nissan really needs to streamline its system!

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
