If the front fascia reminds you of the Maxima mid-size sedan and the mid-cycle refresh of the Altima, you’re spot on with your assumption. The rear end also differs from the Euro-market Pulsar, but not as much as the front does. As for the interior of the China-spec 2016 Nissan Tiida five-door compact hatchback, there’s little in the way of change here as far as styling, functionality, and ergonomics are concerned.
The range-topping model boasts leather seats that are also heated, a 7-inch infotainment system, buttons on the steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, CVT transmission, basically the best the segment has to offer. Only one powerplant will be available for the Tiida in China, and that is a 1.6 naturally aspirated gasoline-powered mill with start & stop technology. Fuel economy? 44.3 mpg (5.3 l/100 km).
I would like to tell you the price of the 2016 Nissan Tiida, but Dongfeng-Nissan has yet to announce the suggested retail price. By comparison, the outgoing Tiida holds a sticker of 105,300 yuan and can get as costly as 137,300 yuan, which makes for $16,210 to $21,135 according to current exchange rates.
