Nissan Reveals Gripz Concept Crossover

Nissan revealed a new concept car from the Frankfurt Auto Show in Germany this week: the Gripz Concept.

Conceived by designers in Europe and Japan, the Nissan concept blends the ability and practicality of a compact crossover with the performance of a sports car.

"It is a glimpse of how a future compact crossover from the pioneer of the segment might look," Nissan says in a press release.

It features a radical design and advanced powertrain concept, the Nissan Gripz Concept is the brand's latest move in an attempt to change the segment. It was designed as a car with a dual personality -- a vehicle that can handle the day-to-day commute and deliver a genuine adventure at the weekend.
