The next generation of Nissan's Dualis compact SUV has been spied testing this week, revealing new details of its final production body.
The Dualis first appeared in 2007, picking up a major styling update in 2010. In Australia, the Dualis is the second best-selling model in the small-SUV segment, trailing only Hyundai's ix35.
Among the visible styling elements are slender new headlights, Nissan's familiar V-shaped grille design and a rising belt-line.
New tail-lights can also be seen at the rear, again drawing on the Hi-Cross concept and even the new Pulsar sedan.
International engine options for the new Dualis will reportedly include a supercharged 85kW 1.2 litre petrol engine to replace the naturally-aspirated 1.6 engine. A 1.6 diesel is also expected.
The new platform is also understood to have been developed to accommodate a plug-in hybrid system, with the new Dualis set to offer such an option in 2015.
The Dualis remains a strong seller in Australia, totalling 1176 sales in May - although that figure marks a slight fall from 1330 for the same period in 2012.
