Nissan Tiida facelift at 2016 Beijing Auto Show
A facelift of the Nissan Tiida hatchback was revealed by Nissan at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show. The new Tiida sports a face different to that of the model currently on sale on our shores, looking like the European-market Pulsar instead. The front fascia resembles the one on the Maxima sedan. Nissan’s signature V-Motion grill is detailed by the swept back headlamps which houses the LED daytime running lights. The black inserts on the redesigned bumper freshens the look of the Tiida.
The interior receives less changes but the range-topping model is now packed with amenities like heated leather seats, dual zone automatic climate control, an infotainment system with a 7-inch screen and a multi-function steering wheel.
The Tiida revealed at the show flaunts the familiar 1.6-litre engine which Nissan confirmed to be the only option available in China. With a Start-Stop system along with an updated CVT gearbox, the model is expected to return 5.3 litres/100 km. If it makes to the GCC, expect the 1.8-litre petrol engine to join the party.
Nissan has equipped the Tiida with safety systems like Forward Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Warning.
No confirmation for the new Tiida’s arrival to the GCC market has been given, or if this design is even destined for other markets.
