It leads to big weight savings and significantly improved fuel economy. But it is not all that we expect from this platform. Vehicles built on IDS concept are going to be aggressive and attractive, with futuristic appearance. In Tokyo we saw angular headlights. These cars are getting LED lamps for headlights, C-shaped, and bold grille U-shaped. Nissan’s emblem will stand there. New look of the hood, spoiler on the roof and blacked-out C-pillar are making this concept spectacular. Tail-lights are also attractive, with boomerang shape, which could be seen on new Juke.
