Nissan EXTREM Concept In Action (Video)

We found the Nissan EXTREM concept to be a pretty intriguing piece of design. The small crossover may never be described as "sexy," but the EXTREM brought the crossover about as close to that as we've seen - definitely closer than the production Juke. In browsing through Nissan's YouTube channel, we came across a video rendering of the concept in action. Here's how Nissan imagines the EXTREM going at the "urban jungle."

The EXTREM is what Nissan calls an urban compact sports car. Nearly a foot shorter than the Juke, the EXTREM is small enough to navigate tight urban corridors comfortably. Its raised stance and four-wheel drive ensure that it remains comfortable if those corridors are littered with pot holes, slush and ice patches. Power comes from the Juke's 1.6-liter turbo engine.

The EXTREM's fastback roofline feels like a bit of a contradiction to the beefy, flared out torso, but the car is more muscular and attractive than we're used to seeing in the crossover segment. Unfortunately, like so many other concept cars that look better than real cars, the EXTREM doesn't appear likely to see the assembly line. Hopefully Nissan will at least follow through in applying some of the car's styling to production models.
