I have been doing some quick sketches of a new Xterra and I'm torn on which direction I should take the design. One is a little more conservative, closer to today's design with softer lines. It seems IMO to fit in better with Nissan's current design language.
Then I have something completely different. Inspired heavily by the Zaroot concept car (link), this Xterra looks more like a serious off-roader which is what the Xterra really should be. However it is more angular with harder edges the previous one so it might look out of place given Nissan's most recent designs.
And then I have a rear view, it's not really meant to be associated with either version though.
So which design should I go with. Now whatever direction I take, just remember that it needs to be a strong design because it's likely that this will end up in the portfolio I will sending out to colleges later this year.
And I also have penned some ideas for a completely redone Citroen C1. It's more upscale and chic than the current design and so far I like where it's headed. Some kinks need to worked out and I need to finalize the rear view but so far this is what I have. And any thoughts on the design would be greatly appreciated.
Finally, this has really nothing to do with anything but here's a Cadillac (I got bored in Greek class). ATS anyone?
