2010 Nissan Dualis Gets 2WD

Nissan Australia announced today the release of a new 2WD version of the Dualis. The new Dualis 2WD Hatch is aimed at "buyers of small hatches with strong visual appeal, safety, spaciousness, flexible interior and an attractive entry price." Speaking of price, the new version starts at A$24,990, without delivery and road tax.

The 2WD will be available, as does the AWD, in two trim levels, the ST and Ti. Nissan announced that the former ST Option pack is now included in the ST trim. As for the Ti, it remains unchanged. Apart from the traction difference, Nissan says the two models are identical in every aspect, from both the performance and trim level standpoints.

The ST trim level features ABS, EBD, brake assist, driver and passenger airbags, active font headrests and front seatbelt pretensioners. Comfort wise, the ST adds power windows, CD player, central locking and air conditioning.

The Ti trim level comes with VDC, EUC and traction control. Comfort wise, the Ti provides auto headlights, rain sensors, steering wheel mounted controls, heated front seats and rear center armrest.

The new trims and the 2WD will be available later this month. For the entry level Dualis ST 6-speed manual is priced at A$24,990. Its AWD version starts at A$26,990.

For the 2WD version fitted with Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission with six-speed M-MODE the starting price is set at A$27,490, while the DUALIS AWD with the CVT transmission is priced at A$29,490.

For the Ti trim level, Nissan will charge an additional A$3,000 on top of the starting price, for both the manual and CVT transmission versions.
