2011 Oting

The Oting is a budget compact SUV by Chinese company Zhengzhou Nissan Automobile and is new to the Middle East for the 2011 model year.

At the time of writing, ZNA were selling only in the UAE, but they have plans to expand across the Middle East during 2011.

The Oting is based on the first generation Nissan Xterra and was launched in China back in 2007. It seats five and at a price of 59,500 undercuts most of the opposition, including ZNA’s stated targets such as the Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage.

Don’t expect much sophistication for your money though – the Oting rides on pick-up truck-style leaf spring suspension and comes with drum brakes at the back. It gets its power from a 2.4-litre engine that makes 128bhp and is fitted with a four-speed automatic transmission. And despite its Xterra origins, don’t expect it to be able to tackle serious off-roading – it’s two-wheel drive only.

But the features list is impressive for the price, with standard equipment including 16-inch alloy wheels, manual air conditioning and a radio with CD player and USB connection for digital music. Leather seats and electric windows are also available, as are rear parking sensors.

Safety features include ABS and a driver’s side airbag. ZNA has spent two years testing its cars in the UAE summer prior to launching them, so they should be able to cope with the summer heat. Although it’s a new brand, the company benefits from using Nissan’s established dealer and service network. The Oting comes with a three-year/100,000km warranty.
