Chevrolet has revealed a new concept car based on the recently launched Prisma sedan, and is targeting the hip youth market with this new sporty crossover. The “Y” tag, which stands for youth, emphasizes the design direction that was taken by its Brazilian designers in developing the concept that was completed using GM’s virtual reality design studio.

According to its creators, the “Y” concept is a sportive and versatile vehicle, with capacity to carry not only five people, but also their camping and surfing equipment. It’s apparently a multipurpose vehicle that’s suited to the city, highways and countryside and was designed to create a perfect balance between these different conditions.

The designers increased both the ride height and the volume of the luggage compartment over the standard Prisma sedan. They also gave the car a tougher appearance by adding unique 16in wheels, new bumpers and fender trim. However, the main attractive feature of Prisma “Y” is the panoramic sunroof. There’s no word if the car will ever make it to production, but we’re sure a more basic model could be delivered to South American markets.
