2012 Nissan Tiida unveiled at Shanghai Auto Show
At 2011 Shanghai Auto Show Nissan unveiled their new global hatchback, the 2012 Tiida. The new 2012 Nissan Tiida targets the younger family, and promises to offer premium styling, comfort and that the company calls a ‘PURE DRIVE revolutionary powertrain’.
The new generation of Nissan’s best selling model sports a swoopier exterior design with some styling references to the pure-electric Leaf. The fluid theme is carried over to the interior with a floating center cluster. The Japanese company also promises improved passenger space thanks to the 100mm (3.9-in.) longer wheelbase.
The 2012 Tiida is powered by the HR16DE engine which has received a range of new technologies to improve its fuel efficiency and reduce its Co2 emission. The 2012 Nissan Tiida comes equipped with the Xtronic CVT with an auxiliary transmission.
The Chinese-market version of the new sub-compact model will be produced in the Dongfeng Nissan Huadu Plant in Guangzhou, with domestic sales to start in May 2011. Nissan said that following its introduction in China, the Tiida will be launched in approximately 130 countries around the world by 2014.
