First look: Nissan gets Urge-nt

Bike-like: Urge cockpit features an Xbox 360 gaming system.

Nissan's compact rear-drive coupe future looks good if the Urge concept is any guide

12 Jan 2006

THE Urge is a motorcycle-inspired compact coupe using a "quick, high-revving,small-displacement engine" to direct power to its rear wheels via asix-speed manual transmission.

Hailed as "pure, powerful sports car", Urge features brushed aluminium wheels, colour-infused aluminium body panels and a "driver-oriented" cockpit with integrated Xbox 360 gaming system.

Given Nissan showed a possible 200SX Silvia coupe replacement in its Foria concept at the Tokyo motor show in October, exactly where Urge fits into Nissan’s future models plans is unclear.

But, if nothing else, the rejuvenated Japanese company’s focus on compact sports coupe concepts bodes well for the future.
