  2. Nissan will launch the Terrano SUV in October . The Japanese automaker will price the Nissan Terrano starting at Rs. 8.90 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Terrano will be offered with a 1.5-litre diesel engine only and no petrol powered Terrano will be launched. Nissan has seen the poor demand for the petrol Duster and has decided not to bring a petrol powered Terrano. The picture you see above is the official studio shot of the Nissan Terrano, yes it doesn’t resemble the sketch which Nissan released recently. Nissan will use the tagline “As solid as you” for the Terrano. The company will offer all variants of the Terrano with driver side airbag as standard, something which it does on its other cars as well. The Nissan Terrano will be offered in four variants which are XL, XL (O), XV and XV premium. The 1.5-litre diesel engine produces 85 PS of power and 200 Nm of torque, mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. This engine gives the Terrano an ARAI mileage of 20.5 km/l. The difference between the Nissan Terrano and Renault Duster will be purely cosmetic. The changes include smoked headlights, new front grille, new bumper, new alloy wheels and new tail lights. On the inside, Nissan will give the Terrano minor changes which will be limited to the seat fabric. The base variant of the diesel Duster (RxE) is priced at Rs. 8.73 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi) and thus the premium which Nissan is charging is Rs. 17,000/- on the base trim. However the premium will vary depending on the variants and one can expect it to increase on higher variants. Could this be the real price? Hope Nissan provides better equipment than the Duster to justify the higher price. What do you think? Source: Motorbeam
  3. Ashok Leyland unveils Stile MPV.

    Ashok Leyland has unveiled the production version of the Stile MPV. Earlier showcased in concept at the Auto Expo, the Stile is a slightly modified version of the Nissan Evalia and comes with a different front styling. Ashok Leyland aims to cater the commercial end of the MPV market with the Stile which will mostly see duty as Taxis and Ambulances. Power comes from the same 1.5-litre K9K diesel engine. Ashok Leyland will also offer a CNG variant. The Stile comes with a sliding window for the second row seats- a feature which is not avialble currently on the Nissan Evalia. Ashok Leyland will launch the Stile in the coming months and will postion the Stile below the Evalia. However Nissan has stopped selling the Evalia and is working on an updated version. The Stile has some features with could make their way into the updated Nissan: The Stile has sliding windows which are absent on the Evalia Captain seats are very popular which the Stile gets. The Evalia didnt have them, Rear washer, wiper and defogger at the rear. AC vents/ blowers for the second row Closed glovebox which was omitted in the Evalia

According to the source, it was spotted near Chennai airport and he same road leads to the Renault Nissan factory.

  7. Keeping its worst ever pace, Indian car market in June 2013 dropped 5.2% from last year ending an awful first half down 10.1%. Launching the locally produced SUV Ecosport, Ford finally attacked this market, almost doubling share.
  8. Spy pictures of the new generation Nissan Qashqai have surfaced on the Internet. It is expected to hit the world market coming November. Looking at the pics this could be a good replacement for the X Trail in India. The X Trail anyways hasnt done too well in India at all. What do you think? Source: Autohome.com.cn
  9. This Nissan Pixo has been spotted testing in India. The Pixo is essentially the Maruti A-Star that we have on Indian roads.The car seen here had Haryana TC plates and the even the badges were covered so its quite a mystery as to what this car is doing here. However there are differences in the exterior. the Pixo gets a rear wiper, while the A-Star even in it’s top of the line ZXi spec makes do without. The base variants of the Pixo also get a fixed ‘butterfly’ type rear windows. The front of the Pixo features an almost Maruti Ritz like headlamp unit. The grill is completely different and the front and rear bumpers of the Nissan get an additional plastic molding. The A-Star has been around for quite sometime in its current avatar. So should Maruti launch a facelift model which looks like this Pixo. It could help garner up more sales for the car. What do you think? Source: IndianAutosblog
  10. SCOOP: Low cost Micra coming

    With Nissan already doing well with the Sunny, looks like they want to have the Micra reach out to more customers. They are doing this by readying a low cost Micra (code G02A) to go head on with the i10 and Brio. The car seen in the picture was snapped by an Autocar India reader on the outskirts of Chennai and did have taped tail lamps and badging. the updated Micra could get a new tail-lamp cluster. However, the rear bumper and wheel cap designs look similar to the current car and are unlikely to be changed. The interiors however, will see some changes owing to cost cutting efforts by the carmaker. The adjustable front headrests will to be replaced by a cheaper single piece design that is integrated with the seat. Nissan plans to delete some other features as well. The current Micra is priced at Rs 4.23 lakh for the base petrol and Rs 5.98 lakh for the base diesel variant (ex-showroom, Delhi). However, the G02A is expected to cost around Rs. 70,000 less and is expected to be launched in March this year
  11. The facelift Nissan Micra has been caught undisguised during a commercial shoot in Thailand.The changes are quite subtle and includes a nosejob with redesigned headlamps, grille, bumper and hood. The car's profile remains intact, while at the rear end, the Micra appears to gain a re-sculptured bumper and fresh tail lamp graphics. I personally like this face lift over the model that is currently running on Indian shores. Probably there is a possibility that it might come to India soon. Here are the pictures sourced from carscoops.com and pics coutesy pulsarclub.com.
  12. Nissan today launched the Nissan Safety Driving Forum in India. This is to create awareness for road safety and educate people on the importance of safety features in cars today. The event was launched in Mumbai today in the parking lot of InOrbit Mall Malad, Mumbai, where it will go on for the 16th and 17th of February 2013. The event is open for general public. This will be followed by events in Delhi and Chennai as well. Mr Takayuki Ishida, the M.D. and CEO of Nissan India and Mr Nitish Tipnis Director Sales and Marketing for Hover Automotive were present at the event. Mr Tipnis made it clear that there will be no compromise on safety in any of Nissan’s models or variant and that even the entry level base models will come with important safety features. There were 3 simulators that were kept at the event for every one to try. One specific one I would to mention is the simulator to emphasize seat belt importance where you would sit in a Nissan Micra and it would be flipped 360 degrees of course in slow motion thus illustrating how important belting up is today in the event of a rollover. Apart from that there were displays on road safety as well as the body shell of a Nissan Micra as well. Simulators focusing on Airbags and Braking systems were also seen. I did try the simulators myself and found them quite interesting In my opinion, this is an excellent initiative by Nissan. There should be more such event by manufacturers in the future More pictures in the next post
  13. Japanese carmaker Nissan has revealed its future game plan for the Indian market. The company announced plans to launch around 10 new offerings here by 2016. First up will be the Micra CVT which will come with the same petrol motor that powers the manual variant. The X-Tronic CVT gearbox will do duty instead of the five-speed manual transmission. The Micra CVT will compete with the likes of the Ritz automatic and Brio automatic. Next in line will be a version of the Sunny equipped with the X-Tronic CVT gearbox. Expect Nissan to price the Sunny CVT below the badge-engineered Scala CVT. When launched, it is likely to compete with the likes of clutchless versions of the Vento, Rapid, Verna and the City. The third offering from Nissan will be for the compact SUV segment. This will be Nissan’s spin on the Renault Duster. However, the new SUV (Codename: NH87) will be more than just a re-badged Duster and will have some significant sheet metal changes as well. As seen from the brand hierarchy, we can expect Nissan to price the NH87 below the Duster. It is expected to enter showrooms end of 2013. Nissan will bring the low-cost Datsun Brand to India in 2014. Autocar India was the first to break the news about Datsun’s comeback in the June 2011 issue. For India, two Datsun hatchbacks are planned, both of which will slot below the Nissan Micra. The first model will be a Rs 4 lakh hatchback (code: K2) based on the two-generations old K11 Nissan Micra. Believed to incredibly spacious for its size, the K2 will feature an all-new ‘top hat’ and will come with a 1.0-litre petrol engine. A cheaper Rs 3 lakh model (code: I2) is also being developed to compete with the Maruti Alto.
