The Xmotion Concept -- a sure bet to be the basis for the next-generation Rogue compact crossover -- takes quite a few design cues from traditional Japanese techniques and styles. The interior console was built based on a method of traditional Japanese nailless wood joining known as kanawa tsugi. The instrument panel is modeled to resemble the kigumi style, according to Nissan, which said that it was "sliced out of a single tree that was selected from the woods in Yamagata Prefecture in northern Japan." The headrest design on the seats also was inspired by kumiko woodwork, the company says. The headrests also feature a Japanese-spiced red-lacquer coloring. And the lower bumpers and side sills are wrapped in carbon woven in Japan's Nishijin textile district, renown for its kimonos. The concept's flair indicates that Nissan may be looking to better distinguish the next Rogue at a time when the fast-growing compact crossover segment is becoming crowded with hungry competitors.
