We’ve managed to get a look at the prototype for the successor to Nissan’s March hatchback compact.
There were rumors that it would be based on the Sway compact which was unveiled as a next-gen hatchback at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, but it seems to actually be quite different.
The V Motion grille is wider than that of the Sway and the bumper’s air intake is not as big. The headlights don’t hang as high and its front mask doesn’t appear to be as aggressive as that of the Sway.
In the rear, there’s a chance that the combination lamps are similar, but design upgrades like the roof line and rear window are different. Overall, it’s more compact than the Sway. In conclusion, the successor to the March is different from the Sway and appears to have its own design.
It’s expected to have a 1.2L 3-cylinder turbo power train and to make its world premiere in the fall of 2017.
