INDIA (September 16, 2009) – Nissan Motor India Pvt Ltd today announced the launch of its fully redesigned, luxury sedan TEANA in India.
With its modern styling, impressive comfort and thoughtful appointments for all passengers, the TEANA has been designed and engineered to provide lasting value in a modern luxury sedan.
The new TEANA offers a number of significant “firsts” – including being the first Nissan model in the Indian market, which fully utilizes the newly developed Nissan’s advanced “D” platform to provide a flat and comfortable ride to the passenger. TEANA is the first in its class to feature a stylish glass roof, extending the open, airy feeling of the interior to the rear-seat area.
Defined by its bold yet elegant character line, which forms a sweeping arc extending from the front to the rear of the vehicle, TEANA’s new, meticulously executed exterior design presents a modern, artistic form.
The TEANA interior is meticulously executed with an emphasis on comfort and fine quality, combining relaxation that soothes both, mind and body, and hospitality befitting a modern living room for all passengers. The driver's seat incorporates an adjustable lumbar support mechanism that reduces the feeling of fatigue on long drives, while the front-passenger seat continues to offer the power ottoman that has been a popular comfort feature on the first-generation TEANA.
The TEANA is fitted with a 2.5-litre 6-cylinder VQ engine with Nissan's new XTRONIC CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission), incorporating Adaptive Shift Control (ASC), a newly developed shift control system. ASC controls the shift timing according to the driver's personal driving style and the driving environment in order to optimize both, power performance and fuel economy.
