Spied: New Nissan C-segment hatchback image

A brand new C-segment hatchback signed by Nissan has been recently spied while being tested on a public road.

Rumors on the Japanese based automaker Nissan developing a new C-segment hatchback have been around ever since 2012 but now inautonews.com brings you the first spy photos with the model. The new Nissan hatchback will enter the C-segment where it will rival with prestigious names such as the Golf, the Focus, the Astra or the Megane and the model will be produced at the company’s facility in Sunderland, United Kingdom. The model in question will be inspired by the Invitation concept, which was unveiled last year in Geneva.

The new Nissan hatchback will get a five-door body style and a completely new name, even if it’s considered to be the replacement for the Almera. The vehicle will also be inspired by the new Qashqai generation and some say that the two models will share the same platform. Features found on the concept car, like the full length panoramic sunroof, the satellite navigation system or the self parking system, are also expected to make their way on the final production version. As for the engine lineup, this will vary from 1.2 liter to 1.5 liter petrol and diesel units, signed by Nissan and Renault.
