Th estate officially revealed ahead of Geneva



Not too many surprises (as with the majority of new cars nowadays)

It would have looked better with a more traditional D-pillar treatment - the blacked out element cheapens the look rather than enhances it IMO.

Indeed it's becoming a cliche on cars.

They probably did this to create the illusion of a floating roof.

As they all do...I don't think there's any other reason behind it is there?

Agreed. Pretty sure blacked out C or D pillars are the new LED DRLs...

Not unless it aids rear visibility or adds positively to the design. In this instance, it appears to do neither of these things.

Sedan as well:

Okay looking c-segment sedan, technically more or less identical o the hatchback, though the more powerful engines are not available with a boot (given these sell mostly in southern and Eastern European countries, no wonder). Built in Turkey (unlike the previous generation, which was built in Korea by Samsung)

Not groundbreaking, but far better looking than anything sold by Nissan in this class. I wish some of Renault's styling goodness could rub off onto to Nissan, like Kias is to Hyundai.

Why does Nissan give us ugly wrecks like the Sentra, Altima, and Maxima. This would revolutionize a turd like the Sentra.

The basic design is fine. Those messy and contrived headlights and tailights are a real shame.
