Nissan North America Inc. will take the wraps off a concept called the Bevel at next month’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The small multipurpose vehicle will make its debut alongside the production version of Nissan’s upcoming Rogue small cross/utility vehicle.

The Rogue CUV will go on sale next fall as an ’08 model with what Nissan describes as “exceptional handling, all-wheel-drive capability and interior space that combines innovation and versatility.”

Penned at Nissan Design American in La Jolla, CA, the Nissan Bevel represents “fresh thinking” in the segment due to its “command central cockpit and high-utility interior.”
