Nissan has revealed the Resonance concept, which previews the styling of future SUV models

Nissan has revealed the Resonance concept at the Detroit Motor Show, which is not only expected to preview the next-generation Murano but also the styling of all of Nissan’s future crossover models.

Boomerang taillights are a nod to the Nissan Juke, and a hint that we can expect to see models like the next-generation Qashqai getting a few Juke-inspired styling touches.

The bold front grille and headlights are a clear indication of Nissan’s new brand identity, which the Japanese firm will be hoping to roll out across all of its model lines.

The interior is described as a ‘VIP lounge’, complete with welcome lights and high-quality leather seats. "The Resonance interior reflects the enlightened modernity of today's crossover buyer, who values an amazing experience over traditional indulgence,” said Francois Bancon, Nissan’s division general manager, Product Strategy and Planning.

The Resonance is powered by a four-wheel-drive hybrid system, which includes a 2.5-litre petrol engine and an electric motor. Nissan hasn’t yet released any performance figures.
