Nissan has dropped a pretty decent concept named the Gripz crossover concept which debuted in the Frankfurt Auto-show. Butterfly suicide doors, insanely attractive curves and sharp edges, futuristic interior and exterior. Yes those are some of the few things this concept hints at; I mean what’s there not to like? A good looking 2+2 crossover that previews the future in a way that isn’t too overbearing and frankly gives us something to look forward to.
The Nissan Gripz Concept dimensions are 161.4 inches long, 77.4 inches wide and 59.1 inches tall, which is very close to the current Nissan Juke although the Gripz concept has half doors in the rear as opposed to the Jukes standard full 4 door setup, hence the 2+2 crossover name from Nissan. This means we get 4 individual bucket seats and a raked roofline.
The Nissan Gripz Concept was inspired by the 1970 Datsun 240Z Baja race car although Nissan says that the Gripz concept draws inspiration from the design language of the first Sway concept which debuted in Geneva earlier this year and received a lot of praise.
