2008 Nissan Forum Concept
Bose designed a SeatCentric system for the concept, with a variety of speakers, including some built into headrests and seatbacks. Independent audio is available for each of the Forum’s three rows.
Under the hood, the Forum features a clean diesel engine, like the one the automaker is planning to offer in the next new Maxima sedan. It’s mated to a version of the mileage minded continuously variable transmission (CVT) Nissan has been rolling out throughout its global product lineup.
Whether the Forum will take a place in the Nissan lineup is unclear. It’s obvious that the automaker is looking for an acceptable alternative to its slow-selling Quest minivan. If the Forum gets people talking the idea up during the coming auto show season, Nissan very well could find a place for this new people mover.
