Nissan latest concept is a sporty sedan aimed at China's post-80s "balinghou" generation. Congratulations, you've just learned something in Chinese.

While it might be less striking than Nissan's previous sedan concept, the Lannia is certainly aggressive enough for the younger buyers thanks to its large wheel arches and shark-fin C-pillar.

Designed by Nissan's Chinese studio, the Lannia name is best translated as 'Impression (of the) Bluebird,' honoring the iconic Nissan Bluebird. It's also blue, just to make sure everybody gets it.

The car is based on the A-Class platform just like the Infiniti Q30 crossover, and is expected to go into production in 2016, most likely powered by the same 1.6 and 2.0 engines.


Expect to see the V-motion grille, boomerang headlamps and what they call a "floating" roof on all upcoming Nissans as well.
