A collaborative project between Nissan's Californian and South American offices, the Extrem was built in Brazil to demonstrate the carmaker's commitment to emerging markets.
Strictly a design study, the Extrem is described as "an urban rally car, a tough little street fighter" styled to tackle the urban jungle of Brasília.
Does the Extrem also preview the next Juke? It might, but it's also a good deal smaller than the already compact Juke, and it's missing a pair of doors.
The Extrem is just 3850mm long, compared to the 4125mm Juke, and its 2450mm wheelbase also falls well short of the 2530mm footprint of its production stablemate.
Power for the 2+2 high-riding coupe is provided by the same 1.6 litre turbocharged four-cylinder found in the Juke and the new Pulsar SSS, and Nissan says it has been developed for both front- and all-wheel-drive configurations.
Watch for the Extrem's styling elements to work their way across more new models from Nissan in the future.
