Posted on: Oct 14, 2013 - 4:00pm IST

Nissan India will be unveiling the updated Evalia tomorrow. However, the MPV has already started arriving at dealerships and here are the changes.

Nissan Evalia update exterior:

The updated model sees the inclusion of a rear wiper and washer.

Though the variant-wise feature lineup is unknown, we can confirm that the top-end Nissan Evalia will get a rear wiper and washer. The design of the alloy wheels has also changed and the rims have been upgraded from 14-inches to 15-inches.

The Evalia’s rims are now upgraded to larger 15-inches as compared to the current 14-inches.

Nissan Evalia update Interior:

Most importantly, the new Evalia receives sliding rear windows! But the news is not completely good as Nissan have favored a different design compared to that of the Ashok Leyland Stile. Where the Stile’s windows pull back to open, the Evalia’s windows need to be pushed forward to open. As a result, the window opening area is limited compared to the Stile and we’re told it takes extra effort to open them.

The much needed window opening has been included, but the Stile’s windows are better designed.

Captains seats will also be offered on the Evalia and the second row of seats will get roof-mounted blowers (not seen in these pictures, but confirmed nevertheless). A proper glovebox door will also be seen on the updated Evalia.

Its now possible to get your Evalia with captains seats for the second row.

Variants:

A new top-end variant called the XV-S will be introduced. This variant is priced at INR 10.55 lakhs (ex-Showroom, New Delhi), about INR 30,000 more than the XV variant.

Price Hike:

    Since there are not so many evalias on road, there are many who do not know what evalia is, as I have purchased the same on 19th Nov 2013,let me tell you ,forget the boxy shape for a while, and consider the advantages of this vehicle over the others like , it has ABS and all safety features, turning radius is very small 5.2, A.C. what we get is good mileage. very roomy, luggage space is very good . When we travelled to Baorda all the members who travelled in it enjoyed.What I feel is that this vehicle is very good for big families at a very competative price when compared to anyvehicle of this size .The more we see many numbers of Evalias on the roads , I am sure many of us will stat liking and will experience the facts about this .

    Yes, Nissan had done a terrific job with the Micra Active and Terrano and even the new Micra….but the Evalia updates are not good enough to make it sell well.

    They must change the whole body shape to a more organized and not so boxy shape to find customers. Imagine how the designers designed this car!
