Review Summary:

It's the Japanese that has taken the streets of the UAE by storm.

Pros

Spacious and well lit cabin.

Cons

Slightly pricey.

Looks

In comparison to its predecessor, the 2015 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.

Feels

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.

Engineering

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.

Summing it…..

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.

    There are actually a nbmuer of recent pursuits that could be classified as pulling electricity from the sky. Anything solar might qualify. Wind energy may also qualify. Tethered wind generators have more of a feel of pulling electricity from the sky (1) as does Solar panels in Space that beams energy to Earth with microwaves.2 Harnessing lightning energy could also be a candidate.3 But pulling energy from simply humid air definitely begins to sound interesting.4 So if your question is an attempt to sound absurd it falls short for anyone with the least sense of the latest technological quests. It also begins to suggest how someone may have felt when seeing the first horseless carriages when they gleefully cried out get a horse to the broken down vehicle. Or the absurdity that If man were meant to fly he would have had wings Everywhere what was once thought impossible is shown first possible and then factual. Is it absurd to think something can be in two places at once? Not to a quantum physicist.5 Some may live in a world of doubt and impossibility while others like a child inhabit a world of possibilities. Some have a very difficult time adapting to change. Others may be in the employ of Koch Industries (6) when they self righteously proclaim the absurdity of the latest technological progress. It is up to each of us to make up our own minds and who we choose to follow. At some point we may be reminded of an old Bob Dillon song (7) where he remarks: Your old road isRapidly agin’.Please get out of the new oneIf you can’t lend your handFor the times they are a-changin’. ______________
