Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept wins design award at Detroit
Posted on January 19, 2017
We have seen Nissan slowly evolve their V-motion design language over the past few years and I must say I like it. It looks great on the Maxima, superb on the Sentra and the Rogue wears it best of all.
The auto industry seems to think so too as the Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept that appeared at Detroit has just won an award. Not just any award either but the 2017 EyesOn Design Award for Best Concept Vehicle. If that wasn’t enough, it also won the award for Best Innovative Use of Colour, Graphics and Materials.
Inevitably there is a video highlighting the concept but it is a good one and well worth a few minutes of your time.

I don’t usually pay much attention to concepts except for those first few minutes where my mind wanders to contemplate possibilities before crashing down to earth. The Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept is a little different though. We are seeing some of it already in those models mentioned above and in some Lexus models too.
The Nissan Vmotion 2.0 concept forms part of the company’s Intelligent Mobility program which aims for a future with zero emissions and zero road fatalities. A laudable goal that includes both autonomous and semi-autonomous driving.
If this is the future of what cars look like, I’m all for it.
2017 Nissan Rogue
For me, the 2017 Nissan Rogue best demonstrates the direction Nissan are moving in. Great looking vehicles, fantastic quality cabins, reliable engines that deliver enviable economy and a package that ticks every box you care to mention.
With improvements in sound insulation, styling and new technologies, there is every reason to consider the Rogue if you’re in the market for a crossover. This new model gets some styling upgrades so looks better than ever. It also gets the option for a hands-free liftgate, adaptive cruise control with forward collision mitigation, remote ignition, heated steering wheel and a few other features.
The 2.5-litre four cylinder ensures good gas mileage with enough power to be a comfortable drive in any situation. With 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque and a responsive CVT transmission, there is a lot to like about driving or being a passenger in the Rogue.
As you would expect from Nissan, the quality is obvious wherever you look. Top class materials, excellent finishing and lots of features packed into a very wallet-friendly package. Visit Collins Nissan, 155 Scott Street, St. Catharines, Ontario, L2N 1H3 to test drive the new 2017 Nissan Rogue.
