2015 Nissan Tiida | new car review
Spacious and well lit cabin.
In comparison to its predecessor, the 2015 Nissan Tiida certainly looks modern and up to date with times. The car looks well planted and has a grown up feel to it. Soft creases and flowing character lines remind of the design trend that Mazda started a few years back. The car falls in line with the rest of the Nissan cars in its appearance and looks familiar.
Inside, the Tiida feels refreshing. It can take in 5 adults with ease. Headroom and legroom are offered in abundance for normal sized mortals, by that I mean those cutting it a bit less than 6 foot in height. Use of earth colors infuses a sense of calmness in its well lit cabin. As on the outside, soft edges and uncluttered layout resonates inside the car. Quality of materials used is at par with expectations.
The 2015 Nissan Tiida comes with two power plants – a 116 horsepower, 1.6 liter 4 cylinder engine and a 130 horsepower 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine. Nissan has coupled both engines to its new generation Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), which basically means that the Tiida gets infinite gear ratios.
What’s on offer?
Two engine options and two variants in each engine option, totalling up to 4 variants, are on the block. Power windows, Dual airbags, power steering, central locking, keyless entry and anti lock braking system come standard on all variants. As you climb the price ladder, goodies such as sunroof, rear parking sensors, 17 inch alloys wheels, cruise control, steering mounted controls, leather seats and more fall into your lap, or rather you fall into theirs.
The 2015 Nissan Tiida comes across as a smart, grown-up car with a decent amount of goodies inside. Besides other Nissan cars, it has shades of design cues first seen on Mazda cars. While the top spec 1.6 liter at AED 62,000 would seem like a reasonable price point, anything above that is a bit much of an asking for this car.
