Nissan's Sway concept compact hatchback, unveiled at Geneva, could give a glimpse of the future Nissan Micra.
The concept features a 'floating roof', removes the B-pillar, and includes full LED lighting.
The company said: "The Sway is a glimpse at how a future generation of compact Nissan models might look if the company's striking new design language was applied to a European hatchback. It is a concept car designed especially to appeal to European tastes: it is seen as emotional, edgy and exciting."
Shiro Nakamura, senior vice president, design and chief creative officer, Nissan, said: "We believe that the Sway continues our tradition of challenging the status quo in market segments by bringing something fresh, distinctive and striking, much as we did with Qashqai and Juke.
"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," said Nakamura.
