2012 NISSAN TIIDA
Nissan Tiida unveiled at the 2011 Shanghai Auto Show yesterday. As some of you may already know, the Versa is sold in numerous markets around the world under the Tiida nameplate. Nissan said that following its introduction in China, the Tiida will be launched in approximately 130 countries around the world by 2014.
The Chinese-market version of the new sub-compact model will be produced in the Dongfeng Nissan Huadu Plant in Guangzhou, with domestic sales to start in May 2011.
2012 Nissan Tiida gets exterior design with some styling references to the pure-electric Leaf. The fluid theme is carried over to the interior with a floating center cluster. The Japanese company also promises improved passenger space thanks to the 100mm (3.9-in.) longer wheelbase.
Automaker said the Tiida will be offered with a turbocharged four-cylinder unit while transmission options will include a CVT.
