1987 Nissan Judo Concept.
Nissan went all out at the 1987 edition of the Tokyo Motor Show, displaying no less than six concepts ranging from a mid-engined Toyota MR2-like sports car to a tall Renault Espace-fighting minivan christened Jura, a name borrowed from a mountain range in Europe. One concept that largely flew under the radar was the Judo.
The Judo featured a simple, uncluttered design that grouped all of the buttons and knobs on the center console, leaving the instrument panel completely bare save for two rectangular air vents. The interior provided space for two passengers, but a cramped rear bench could be used to transport two more on short trips.
Power came from a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that made 210 horsepower at 6,800 rpm, figures that were downright impressive for such a small car in the late 1980s.
