But, while a number of new models like the European-market Pulsar have appeared in the past year, Nissan has yet to fully transfer its sharpest styling to the sedan and hatch range.
Although Nissan has yet to confirm a production future for the Sway, it has revealed that we can expect elements of its styling to appear on a future compact model - likely the next Micra.
“With this new concept car for Geneva, we are experimenting to see how Nissan might be able to bring fresh ideas to the compact hatchback segment,” the company said in a statement earlier this month.
This new rendering (top of article), crafted by independent designer Theophilus Chin, offers a look at how the Sway could look in production form.
Little about the concept’s styling has been changed for Chin’s rendering - but one look at the new Maxima reveals that Nissan is prepared to maintain the concept look in the leap to production.
An all-new Micra is due to enter production sometime in the middle of 2016, so we can likely expect Nissan to reveal an even more evolved version of the Sway in the months ahead.
