Nissan put out an incredibly brief press release about its plans for the Geneva Motor Show, including one line about a new concept that will debut this March. After a bit of snooping we've got a name and a genre: it's called the Qazan and it's a compact crossover designed to slot in below the Euro-market Qashqai.

The sketch above was pulled from our previous story about Nissan's new A-segment vehicle that's due to be produced at the automaker's Sunderland plant in the UK. If the rumors hold true, production of the Qazan will take over the Micra assembly line when it ends next year. The Qazan is expected to go on sale in 2010 and aimed to compete with the Kia Soul, so expect an upright body and a youthful image. More to follow from Geneva in just over a month.
