Nissan will reportedly add an “iconic” design to its range in various markets, as a replacement for the ‘love-it-or-hate-it’ Cube and Murano CrossCabriolet.

Speaking with industry paper Automotive News, Chief Planning Officer Andy Palmer reportedly said Nissan needs another ‘head-turner’ to reinforce its commitment to cutting-edge styling.

Palmer said despite the lack of sales success for either the Cube or the convertible version of the Murano, the Japanese carmaker needs to fill the styling void left behind as the two models are discontinued.

“To be clear, we will morph this space in our portfolio into something iconic,” Palmer said in an email. “The space is held to make sure we have something iconic.”

As to what that iconic model may be, Palmer isn’t saying for now.

A look at some of Nissan’s recent concepts points to the BladeGlider and the IDx as two models that could fulfil Palmer’s plans, with production for the latter both confirmed and denied in separate reports this year.

Until further details of the new model are revealed, Nissan will likely focus on its Juke SUV for buyers keen to avoid mainstream styling.

The Juke has reportedly attracted the attention of Hyundai, with the Korean carmaker believed to be planning its own SUV with ‘edgy’ styling as a direct competitor to the Nissan.
