The Foria is a compact, premium, two-plus-two, rear-wheel-drive concept coupe that Nissan is actively considering for the United States and European markets.

It's an elegant, classy car with a high-quality, aluminum- and leather-lined interior and a pair of Mazda RX-8-style rear suicide doors. The design team has given it a long nose (but a short front overhang) and a very pert, curvaceous rear end.

A production Foria might be powered by Nissan's ubiquitous 3.5-liter V-6 engine, but the company is not divulging any powertrain details. The Foria is equipped, though, with a paddle-shift transmission and four-wheel active steering. Think of it as a modern, upscale, designer version of the Nissan Silvia (240SX). Or, put another way, it's the kind of car Lancia would like to build, and in fact it bears a striking resemblance to the Lancia Fulvia concept car from the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show. Since Fiat doesn't have the money to build a modern-day Lancia Fulvia, Nissan ought to do it instead.
