Golf and Focus will no longer be the only competitors in the hatchback market since the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan is planning on producing a new mid-sized vehicle. The name is still not known and it is said to be manufactured in Sunderland UK.
The specifications of the new model are unknown. However it is expected that the car will bear a resemblance to the Invitation and Qashqai since they will be used as basis for the production of the new model. It will be characterized by high performance and modern look. There will be panoramic sunroofs, automatic parking system and cheap satellite navigation.
The available engines will be 1.2L and 1.5L which belong to the Renault-Nissan alliance.
