Sydney show: Foria for Nissan

200SX reborn: Foria mimmicks Mazda's RX-8 with suicide doors.

Nissan's big thing at the Sydney motor show was the Foria compact sports coupe

27 Oct 2006

IT LOOKS to be a 200SX replacement, but Nissan remains uncommitted to its Foria concept – the star of its Aussie motor show stand yesterday.

Conceived by Nissan’s international design studio, the Foria is a compact sports coupe designed as a driver’s car with a touch of elegance.

It uses a "mid-sized" engine that drives the rear wheels via a paddle-shift automatic transmission.

Another mechanical highlight is a four-wheel Active Steer system. In true sports touring tradition, the front-engine/rear-drive layout allows a short front overhang, long hood and compact cabin.

The integrated grille and headlight treatment is becoming a Nissan trademark while the high waistline is designed to convey a sophisticated image.

The Foria also boasts "suicide" doors in the fashion of the Mazda RX-8. The interior design is handcrafted with a sports flare.
