Nissan’s C-segment hatchback spied again – update: interior image added image

Our spy photographers have managed to catch the new Nissan C-segment hatchback on camera once more, on a public road, where the car was being tested.

Rumors on Nissan developing a brand new C-segment hatchback, a successor of the Almera, have been around for quite some time now and it seems that the Japanese based automaker has taken the deed seriously, as the model in question is being spied now more often than ever. The upcoming Nissan vehicle will become a rival for models like the Ford Focus, the Renault Megane, the Opel Astra or the Volkswagen Golf, amongst others.

The new Nissan C-segment hatchback will receive a brand new name, which will have nothing to do with the previous Almera badges, and it will be produced in a five-door hatchback body style, at the company’s plant in Sunderland, United Kingdom. The vehicle will be inspired by the Invitation Concept and by the new generation of the Qashqai and it will get the full-length panoramic sunroofs, the low-cost satellite navigation system, the self parking system, new technologies and various 1.2 liter and 1.5 liter engines under its hood. Rumors are saying that this car will be unveiled in 2014.
