The innovative Nissan Qashqai landed in the highly competitive golf class one of the few direct hits in recent years.2007, in Germany alone, more than 16,000 compact SUV will be sold and the waiting times are long.Customer demand in the new, rather humdrum Tiida should however run more reticent.
The 1.3-ton “Japanese” is a global car and will be produced in the Mexican Civac.Incidentally, he is the best-selling Nissan Global: In the U.S. and in Japan it has been several years in the market.Even in Dubai, he is an integral part of the streetscape.In this country, we want to start in January, the dealer selling 6,200 vehicles annually well especially in tradition-conscious customers.And that’s the 4.30 meter long five-door as though solid, but little emotion alternative to Golf, Astra, i30 or Bravo.
The forms are pleasant, but not very innovative.And lightweight optical bonds 350Z and Murano also bring little charisma in the Tiida.But Nissan is keen that you want to tap him with primarily conservative customers who go for years and at a Nissan Almera and Co. be better felt than in the Qashqai.
Good hands, you will feel in the interior of the Mexican Japanese.He is one of the most spacious in its class vehicles and shines with plenty of leg and head room even more.Also forward you have plenty of space.Unconvincing to present only the unwilling seat adjustment on the center tunnel, the only tax to be adjusted in height and low leg rest.
In the rear, it looks Thanks to the long wheelbase of 2.60 meters even more spacious.The movable and adjustable in inclination rear seats offers passengers all the possibilities.Unfortunately, the rear head restraints are too short and the seats should be here like slightly oversized lush.The trunk swallows depending on the position of the rear seat from 300 to 425 liters, the maximum interior length is 1.84 meters.There’s more cargo space in the 4.48 meter long saloon version of the Tiida – here are impressive 500 liters available.
Likewise unspectacular as the styling presents the performance of the four-and five-door Nissan doubles that in the U.S. and Japan under the name “Versa” is traveling.Like mode / Grand Modus and Nissan Note the Tiida on the developed together with Renault B platform is underway.
The McPherson strut front suspension, together with the beam rear axle for a good and comfortable, especially driving.The circuit is as smooth as the electric power steering.Six airbags, ABS and ESP prevent the worst in an emergency.
Nissan expects most customers opt for the 110-hp base model.The 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 81 kW/110 hp and 153 Nm of torque is a solid foundation.0 to 100 km / h in 12.6 seconds and 186 km / h top lie just at the level of competing models such as average fuel consumption of just seven liters Super per 100 kilometers.
A Bargain is the Tiida 1.6 Visia even in the basic version does not.Without air conditioning, it costs 15,990 euros.The expected volume Tiida 1.6 Acenta model starts at 18,590 euros.There are in addition to a climate control fog lights, sound system and a Bluetooth interface.Really interesting would be equally well-equipped as economical diesel Micra 1.5 dCi Tekna.The 106 hp diesel is however not only by its impressive pulling power of 240 Nm and an unusually loud engine, but also a toned base price of 21,540 euros.Given the fierce price competition between the competitors are likely to demand in an otherwise strong diesel segment therefore be limited.It is likely that more variable note or multifunctional Qashqai for many but be the more interesting choice: the same motorized diesel Qashqai is as smooth 400 euros cheaper than the Tiida.
