Not much details, but a little intrigue. Nissan is preparing to unveil at the Geneva Motor Show a new small crossover SUV for the European market called the Qazan. All we really have so far is this quick teaser sketch, but hopefully when the crossover hits showrooms in 2010 Nissan will have some fun promoting it like Nissan does with Qashqai’s Spannerleague.

Press release after the jump.

Press release

The star of the Nissan stand will be Qazana, a show car. It is best described as a small Crossover, and has been conceived to challenge conventional wisdom about what buyers of small five-door cars should expect.
The striking design is dominated by large, wide wheelarches and a lower shape which gives a feeling of strength, while the upper body is dynamic, assertive and sporty. Qazana is a five door, with the rear doors opening forwards once the front doors have been opened, in the style of ‘suicide doors’.
Qazana will reinforce Nissan’s position as a pioneer of Crossovers, building on the success of the Murano - now in its second generation, the Qashqai and recently introduced Qashqai+2.
