2012 Nissan Tiida | new car review

Posted on Jul 9, 2012 by

The Tiida is ’s compact car for those looking for a value-for-money, simple and reliable runabout. It sits just above the Sunny in the pecking order.

Available in both sedan and  forms, it doesn’t offer much in the way of excitement, but is big on practicality. It’s far from cutting edge, being a car that’s now six years old, but it remains popular in the region and indeed across the world – the five-door  Tiida is Nissan’s best selling car, globally.

The was given a facelift in 2009, with revised headlights and a new grille. Care has been taken to ensure that despite the compact dimensions, there’s plenty of legroom and a high roof for rear seat passengers. The large glove box can apparently accommodate a handbag, and there’s an auxiliary input socket on the stereo for an MP3 player.

Both hatch and sedan are available in two trim levels. The 1.8-litre engine in all variants produces a maximum of 127bhp and 173Nm of torque. All models are available with a four-speed automatic gearbox, or a six-speed manual transmission transferring power to the front wheels.

The entry level S trim comes with steel wheels, while the SE comes with 15-inch alloy wheels. The sedan can hold 467 litres worth of luggage behind the rear seats (which also fold down) while the hatch can only manage 289 litres.

All variants come with one driver-side airbag as standard and additional airbags, ABS and EBD need to be paid for additionally.
