Remember the mystery Nissan model that was teased just a while ago? It’s now here in the form of the Nissan Kicks Concept which serves to preview an upcoming model designed specifically for the Brazilian market. The car will make its world premiere very soon at the 2014 Sao Paulo Motor Show.

The concept measures in at 4,300 mm in length, is 1,800 mm wide and stands at 1,600 mm tall. Designed at Nissan’s Global Design Centre in Japan, the concept is styled to reflect a car that “is designed to have the appearance of a striking premium car that captivates the look and to be a vehicle whose owners would be proud to own and drive,” says VP of Nissan’s global design department, Shiro Nakamura.

A rather pronounced front bumper along with a bold V-shaped front grille further adds to the active, somewhat brutish persona. Smatterings of orange can be found on the roof and also as part of the wheel details ensure that the concept really sticks out, à la Citroen DS3 Racing.

Technical specifications are still sketchy, with Nissan only willing to say that the production version just might be sold outside of Brazil – the same case with the Ford Ecosport. Looks like the stage is set for another B-segment SUV to rival the likes of the Peugeot 2008, Honda HR-V/Vezel and upcoming Mazda CX-3.
