This is the first teaser image of the Nissan Qazana concept car, which will go on sale in 2010.
Company insiders say it's a smaller version of the Qashqai small family. It has five doors, with the rear two back-hinged.
The Qazana will be built at Nissan's Sunderland plant, safe-guarding 1100 jobs. It will replace the Micra on the production line.
The Qazana will be unveiled at next month's Geneva motor show. Nissan will also show the 370Z coupe, Cube and Pixo superminis and a face-lifted X-Trail at the show.
