After a couple of teasers, Nissan has introduced the Sway concept on the dawn of the Geneva Motor Show.

Nissan says they are rethinking the compact hatchback with the new Sway concept featuring a design specifically created to suit European tastes. The vehicle painted in "bluish dawn grey" is 4010mm long, 1780mm wide, 1385mm tall and comes with a 2570mm wheelbase while the styling borrows cues from the Juke and Qashqai but in a more dramatic matter suitable for a concept.

Up front we see Nissan's familiar V-motion grille along with sharp looking LED headlights while the bumper hosts strips of LED daytime running lights. Also noticeable is the sculpted hood, boomerang LED taillights and trapezoidal exhaust pipes built into the rear bumper. The Sway concept also adopts a floating roof and has received rear-hinged back doors so the B pillar is gone.

Stepping inside the cabin, the layout has been inspired by the IDx concepts with a clean design and an uncluttered layout. The Sway concept gets lightweight seats featuring an exposed aluminum structure and covered in suede-like fabric enhanced with a pearl-effect material and special stitching.

Chances are the Nissan Sway concept serves as a preview for the next generation Micra scheduled to go on sale next year, with production taking place in France at a Renault factory near Paris.
