Nissan will unveil the Qazan concept at Geneva which is slated to becomes the brand's entry-level compact crossover. The model is slated to debut in European showrooms in 2010.

Nissan will be debuting a new crossover concept at the Geneva motor show in March.

The concept, called the Qazan, is a compact crossover intended to expand Nissan's product portfolio and introduce a model into the increasingly competitive compact-to-small SUV/crossover segments.

The Qazan is slated to arrive in Europe by 2010 and will round out Nissan's crossover lineup, stationed below the Qashqai, Qashqai +2 and the Murano, which constitute Nissan's crossover range.

How will it look? Well, this very sketchy sketchwhich was previously released back in June 2008 is all we get so we will have to wait until March for more.

But it has been previously reported that the design will be similar to the Nissan URGE concept car which was unveiled a few years ago.

The compact crossover will be built at Nissan's Sunderland plant in the UK where its production will replace the outgoing Micra's. The next-generation Micra production will be shifted to a new plant currently under construction by Renault-Nissan in Chennai, India.
