Nissan racks up awards at Detroit auto show

DETROIT — The Nissan Sport Sedan Concept Friday was named “Best Concept” at the 2014 North American International Auto Show NAIAS by Autoweek Magazine editors.

The LEAF was also named named the Cars.com Eco-Friendly Car of the Year for 2014.

Cars.com cited a drop in the LEAF’s price and battery improvements for electric car’s honor.

As for Autoweek Magazine, the Nissan concept edged out the Kia G4 Stinger and Toyota FT-1 to earn the annual accolade given to vehicles that Autoweek believes rose above the rest at the auto show.

“The Sport Sedan Concept is an extremely important vehicle for Nissan because it demonstrates a new and energetic design direction that builds on Nissan’s legendary approach of applying sports car principles to a sedan,” Nissan senior vice president and chief creative officer Shiro Nakamura said. “To receive this recognition reinforces that Nissan is headed full speed in the right direction, and this is only a sign of good things to come. We are elated to take home Autoweek’s ‘Best Concept’ award from the 2014 NAIAS.”

Each year, Autoweek editors select Best in Show, Most Significant, Most Fun and Best Concept at the auto show in Detroit. Editors pointed to the Sport Sedan Concept’s forward-looking design themes, including a flow-over “V-Motion” grille, a “floating” roof, boomerang light clusters and diamond-shaped seat graphics, as notable qualities that helped earn the award.
