Never heard of the Nissan Qashqai? That's alright, because Nissan has a big crossover lineup, and this one is only sold overseas. But in the markets where it's available, it's been an unbridled success and the cash-cow its name suggests. It was introduced in 2007, and by the end of that year, Nissan had already sold 100,000 of them in Europe alone. By 2011 it had made a million of them, and to date has sold over two million worldwide. And now it's preparing to launch an all-new model to replace it.

Spied while undergoing development a few months ago, Nissan has now announced that it will reveal the new Qashqai on November 7th. But to keep us on our toes, the Japanese automaker has released this teaser image.

Cloaked and looking like something out of Tron, the new Qashqai promises to borrow heavily from the Resonance concept shown earlier this year in Detroit (a bit ironic since the Qashqai isn't sold here) and follow the lead of the new Rogue (or X-Trail as its known in markets where it shares showroom floorspace with the Qashqai).

We'll have to wait until November 7th to find out more, but for now you can expand the teaser image above and read the brief press release below to delve deeper.

      Whether you like them or not the boomerang lights are one of the most distinctive styling cues of the Asian car companies. It's slowly giving Nissan a identity from a visual respect. While only on a few models today looks like more models will adapt them in some variation in the future.

      Is there much of a difference between the QQ and the new X-Trail/Rogue? I'm pretty sure the previous QQ came in 5 & 7 seat versions as well.

        It'll be smaller. The new Rogue's sister car in Europe is the latest version of the X-Trail.

      Pretty sure it's going to be identical to the Rogue, you can even see the same light and grille arrangement under the fancy tarp.
