Offering a hint of what we're likely to see in the way of exterior/interior styling cues for its next generation of sport utility/crossover models, the Nissan Hi-Cross Concept took to the stage in Geneva. While the new look could influence our future Rogue, it seems more likely the Hi-Cross Concept ultimately will morph into the next-gen Nissan X-Trail, a model currently not sold in the U.S.

Highlighting the changes on this compact, seven-passenger cute ute are restyled headlamps and a new side character line that adds more interesting contours to its profile view. Inside, the Hi-Cross Concept introduces a new, space optimizing "T-wing" dash design that apparently does have some international potential.

Pop the hood on the Nissan Hi-Cross Concept and you'll find a new hybrid powertrain package that teams a 2.0-liter/four-cylinder direct-injected gasoline engine with an electric motor. Nissan offered no other details on this setup, save for noting that it delivers the same kind of performance as a conventional 2.5-liter engine but offers far better fuel economy and lower emissions.
