Geneva motor show 2012: Top 10 cars - Nissan Invitation
Of course, the show car is a concept version, so we’ll expect it to be toned down before it rolls off the production line. Even so, the Invitation hints at a much more appealing vehicle than the relatively boxy Note. The practical styling is masked on the five-door show car by a lot of bodywork creases that make it look more swoopy than it really is. If this can be retained on the production car, then it could be a really stylish small hatchback. It’ll be green, too – expect the cleanest version to emit less than 100g/km of CO2.
It also ought to be affordable. As a direct replacement for Nissan's baby 'MPV hatchback', the Note, we’d expect the Invitation to cost from around £12,000.
