Original name: ニッサン AA-X
'Open air Motoring' has its time honored-devotees, and the convertible has always charmed admirers with its shape and style. Revelling in the 'Windshower' excites the instincts and gives 'an extra-ordinary feeling'.
Functions that people desire of the car diversify more from year to year. The view is to consider a vehicle not simply as a mode of transfer but to manage it skillfully and in a way which could be considered as a partner in life. The AA-X is seen meeting these needs, and is a new sense multi-purpose car which seeks coherence with its original top structure - 'a refreshing open car which allows comfortable driving with the wind' with 'diverse use of a wagon which is appropriate for various life settings'.
In the interior 'the pleasure of driving' is aspired to. There is a sense of an extending meter/dial panel and a center console which seems to envelop the driver, and simulates a light airplane cockpit. A grouping of four indicators with the tachometer at the center, was arranged with enough consideration for visibility. Adopting EL light (electronic luminescence) creates an enjoyable night drive.
A plate with an EL light is set up in the door opening to improve convenience in alighting and boarding. Bucket type sports seats are used up front. Large space is provided for rear seating by thinning the front seat backs. And a trunk open-through structure allows storage for two sets of golf bags. All is to improve practical use, which is an essence of interior design.
This AA-X expresses sporty sense through a balance of hot-rod styling and body colors which appeal to the young. New age styling was targeted in bold surfaces and lines. The exterior design is based on two seating open style, and expresses a look of unfazed determination with a sculpturesque body shape. And, luggage space which allows storage for baggage even when four persons are aboard, is guaranteed.
