Are you the next Nissan Rogue? Apparently.

Show cars have a habit of vanishing into the ether once their run on the auto show circuit has come to a conclusion. But don’t be surprised to see the Nissan Hi-Cross, making its public debut at the LA Auto Show this month, land back in the public eye in the months ahead.

Actually, to be more precise, expect to see the Hi-Cross Concept’s design resurface when Nissan updates its compact crossover, the Rogue, next year. Senior officials confirm that the Hi-Cross styling will be “very close” to the look of the next-generation Rogue.

And, like the 7-seat Hi-Cross Concept, the next-generation Nissan crossover will get an optional hybrid powertrain featuring the maker’s latest gas-electric drive technology, has learned. The system will go into production next year in several Nissan models.


Nissan Teases Hi-Cross Concept

Should reappear as next X-Trail.

Nissan will show the Hi-Cross concept in Geneva, the design exercise likely setting the stage for the next-gen Nissan X-Trail CUV.

It’s going to be a busy couple years for Nissan, which plans to be rolling out at least one new models every six weeks or so for the foreseeable future.  So expect to be seeing plenty of new products lining up on the 2012 auto show circuit.  We already got a look at the new Nissan Pathfinder and, as reported earlier today, we’ll see the striking Infiniti Emerg-E plug-in supercar concept charge into the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

All the News!

With the sort of schedule Nissan’s product team has going, however, it’s no surprise there’ll be yet another new model debuting at the PALExpo Convention Center next week.  Officially, Nissan is calling the Hi-Cross a concept vehicle, but the slick little crossover is all but certainly going to re-emerge as the replacement for the Nissan X-Trail.
