Wouldn't want to spend a dime on this one.<P>But just noticed, the new Nissan cars all have similar style steering wheel spokes.<P>The rear reminds me of a Hyundai...dunno why.

I'm not big on the design, but I saw the car in person yesterday and it is interesting. The interior quality was better than the Altima (no surprise, this is still a bit of a concept), and the car uses CVT technology, which is also interesting. It's belt driven, which means it may be subject to "rubberbanding" but it's interesting. It's significantly smaller than the XC90.

The interior, sides, and overall profile look good, but the front and back are a little too bland and rounded IMHO. The driver is going to have a terrible blind spot with those huge 'D-pillars' and smallish rear window. Although, the use of CVT technology is interesting, for this type of vehicle.<P>-Drew
