Nissan Resonance Concept First Look

by James Deaton on

Nissan released a new crossover SUV concept called the Resonance at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit this week.

The very aerodynamic shell and comfy futuristic cabin make the Resonance a basis for Nissan forward direction in the crossover segment. Exterior features include a tinted acrylic grille with Satin Chrome accents, 22-inch, dynamic flow aluminum-alloy wheels and boomerang shaped headlights.

The roof is a full-length glass panel floating above the interior, or “VIP lounge” as Nissan calls it, that serves to enhance the feeling of spaciousness while offering passengers a panoramic outside view.

The lounge is depicted with contoured door molding, large windows, wood accent panels and smooth, leather seats. The minimal and attractive cabin is illuminated by sequential welcome lighting which further add to the VIP concept.

The infotainment display sits center on the dashboard, standing out in a shiny, sci-fi blue. By layering information on the display, the idea would be that it will mimic a holographic, visual experience.

The Resonance concept combines the edgy, flowing aesthetics onto an intention to incorporate an all-wheel drive, hybrid-electric powertrain system. This would include Nissan's "one-motor, two-clutch" internal combustion gasoline engine paired with a lithium-ion-battery electric motor. Shifting gears will be performed by Nissan’s next-generation Xtronic C.V. transmission.

The Resonance concept is the latest for Nissan’s current lineup of crossovers vehicles like the Murano, Rogue and Juke.
