The company behind Europe's most popular SUV-esque cars -- the Qashqai and the Juke -- is planning something that blends 4x4 style with dynamic performance for the Frankfurt motorshow on September 17.

Nissan is being very coy about what exactly to expect from its latest concept other than it will "continue to innovate and move the bar higher" in the crossover market.

However, the car is most likely to be a sports-focused model that will adopt the company's ‘Z' premium performance badge.

As such when a production model based on the concept goes on sale in 2017 it will blend all of the styling cues of a crossover with the speed more usually associated with a sports coupe.

To date, Nissan has sold over 2.5 million crossovers in Europe alone and the new concept is part of the company's plan to make the segment even more appealing to even more drivers.
