1998 Nissan KYXX

Nissan’s KYXX is a five-door, five-passenger vehicle in the small MPV mold. The concept took about ten months to create. The overall length of the car is 3650 mm (144 in.), width 1680 mm (66 in.), and height 1480 mm (58 in.), with a wheelbase of 2550 mm (100 in.). Nissan put particular effort into providing maximum interior space.

The car's exterior and interior were designed in parallel, with teams swapped regularly to maintain overall design identity. The dashboard has a central information pod, and the car is fitted with a satellite navigation system. The steering wheel is of small diameter. This and the rounded look to the interior with the instrument pods create the effect of even greater interior space. The beltline of the car is high and rises to the rear.

The vehicle is markedly cab-forward with a short nose. There are six lenses in each headlamp using fiber optics technology. Neon systems are used for the indicators; the taillights use LED technology. Its power unit is a four-cylinder, common-rail turbodiesel to give the car 3.0 L/100 km (78 mpg) fuel economy potential. It uses the development of Nissan’s M-fire combustion system.
