Nissan has revved up the value, luxury and standard safety features on the new Tiida Series 3 models, which have arrived in showrooms across Australia.

Notably, the base ST grade is now equipped with standard curtain airbags while the upper level Ti model picks-up standard leather trim, 16 inch alloy wheels and climate control. Further, the new Tiida Ti hatch now features a sunroof as standard.

The Nissan Tiida has always provided an outstanding mix of spacious, comfortable interiors; an economical yet powerful 1.8 litre engine and exceptional value.

“Now, despite the increase in standard equipment, pricing is at least $1,000 less than the previous model, further enhancing the outstanding value proposition with Japanese design and engineering in this very competitive market,” said Dan Thompson, CEO of Nissan Australia.

Since its launch in early 2006, the Nissan Tiida has delivered on its promise of “big car space at a small car price”, with more than 42,000 examples sold.

For the MY2010 Nissan Tiida range, the model line-up has been tidied; interior styling, comfort and luxury upgraded; and the exterior freshened, notably with the addition of reprofiled bumpers front and rear.

These larger new bumpers enhance the vehicle’s overall proportions and balance and extend its length by 45 mm on hatch models and by 30 mm on sedan.

The MY2010 Nissan Tiida Series 3 will be available in ST and Ti model grades for both Sedan and Hatch, with its 93 kW 1.8 litre engine now compliant to Euro 4 emission standards.

Interior Upgrade

The Nissan Tiida Ti Series 3 Sedan and Hatch models add standard leather upholstery and steering wheel rim, climate control air conditioning, a six-stacker CD player with MP3 capability and MP3 Player Input. A new metallic-look finish for the Ti dash and new sportier looking meter cluster (complete with new fuel economy read-out) complete the look.

All ST models add curtain airbags, cruise control, power windows, standard steering wheel audio controls, CD player with MP3 capability and MP3 player input, as well as the new look instrument meters and fuel economy read-out.

Exterior Upgrade

Road presence, proportion and materials quality are enhanced with a new front bumper and grille, elongated in profile compared with the previous model for a sportier, more contemporary look.

The Hatch gains a new taillight design – highlighted by a prominent central indicator lens for the cluster – as well as a new, more elongated rear bumper. The Ti models also gain new body-coloured side sills, which have the effect of visually lowering the vehicle, improving its road stance. The Ti Hatch also adds a sunroof as standard.

Nissan Tiida Ti models are now fitted with new 16 inch alloy wheels, shod with 195/55R16 tyres, while the ST adds a new 15 inch wheel cover design.

Significantly, Nissan is reducing the Manufacturer’s List Price across the Tiida range.

The new prices* are:

Tiida ST -$17,990 ($1,000 less than the previous ST model)
Tiida ST auto -$20,240 ($1,000 less than the previous ST model)
Tiida Ti - $21,990 ($2,000 less than the now discontinued Q model)
Tiida Ti auto - $24,240 ($2,000 less than the now discontinued Q model)
Tiida ST - $17,990 ($1,000 less than the previous ST model)
Tiida ST auto - $20,240 ($1,000 less than the previous ST model)
Tiida Ti auto - $23,240 ($3,000 less than the previous Ti model)

This pricing gives the Tiida ST advantages over competitors in the light car class, in terms of size and value for money. The Nissan Tiida Ti models compete on price with small car rivals but the Tiida’s far higher levels of standard equipment now give it a significant advantage in the showroom.

Tiida Series 3 also fits perfectly between the Nissan Micra and the Nissan Dualis in terms of size, specification and pricing, giving Nissan a logical and harmonious model grade with which to compete in the market.

“The best news of all is that despite this marked increase in standard equipment, Nissan has been able to reduce Tiida prices across the range, doubling the benefit to our customers,” said Thompson.

“The broad appeal of the Micra, Tiida and Dualis, as well as the award-winning new Maxima, combined with the upgraded Murano, and just launched 370Z Roadster, mean Nissan has a compelling range of highly attractive vehicles with which to win over more customers in 2010,” he said.

* Manufacturer’s List Price only, which does not include dealer delivery or statutory charges.
