New reports suggest that Nissan will be building its upcoming Volkswagen Golf rival at its Sunderland plant in the UK. The model will also be designed and engineered in the country.

“There is a gap in our range and the idea of the new car is to keep our customers within the brand,” said Nissan’s executive vice president of product planning, Andy Palmer in an interview with AutoExpress. “This will catch buyers moving up from a Juke, who can then buy a Qashqai if they need more space. Eventually, the idea is to get them into an Infiniti.”

The model will be influenced by the Nissan Invitation Concept that was unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March.

While there won’t be any hybrid options, the Nissan hatch will get a range of gasoline and diesel engines. A high-performance version making 200-hp is also in the works.
