    agreed with howei,

    we've all seen the concept designs, and it looks like it's following that closely. i've already made my feelings clear: our micra looks like it will age like fine wine, and is a Nissan aberration (in the sense that it's not hideous, like almost EVERY recent nissan model).

    this thing looks like a rat or beaver with some serious bucktooth issues, and will age about as well as that new 50th anniversary corolla that's coming up.

    (in case you're wondering: that's not a compliment)

    honestly, im astounded by how recent Nissans and Toyotas are just so uggo, it's almost like they're trolling me. Lexus, as well.

    i just saw the new Acura fascias coming up, and while i still dont like it per se, they at least are getting rid of that stupid beak. but Nissan and Toyota....man....

    The Sway concept was radical, but has a lot of interesting design details to make an interesting car. When I look at the new spy shots I see a pretty average design. I hope Nissan will proof me wrong!

    I just compared the 2 spy shots and the camouflage is pretty different. The design of the one in black looks nice, but the design of the one in white looks pretty average. I really want to see the car without camouflage...

    I think it has a lot or too much Renault in its design. Worst thing Nissan ever did was get involved with Renault in my opinion. The K13 gets a lot of abuse (certainly over here) but you can see its a micra it looks like one & feels like one it's a reasonably priced honest small car for the people like a micra was always ment to be. The new one, to me says non of that and looks to me, to be dare I say, Clio-ish?

    God damn it.. I hate to say it, but I think your right.. It does look like it.. Dead ringer.. I really really hope that it isnt a Renault that has been freshened and handed to us as 'new'. If thats the case, I am done.

    Another customer lost if you ask me.. This isn't a sway. This is a rebadged piece of crap.

    Can really see it now you have posted that pic. Especially the second photo of the Micra. The whole rear end, back door, quarter and roof area look just the same.
