Just as previously promised, the Nissan Latio is now in Edaran Tan Chong Motor showrooms nationwide. The following are the prices for the Nissan Latio sedan and the Nissan Latio Sport hatchback, non-inclusive of insurance.
Nissan Latio 1.6 ST (M) – RM79,900.00
Nissan Latio 1.6 ST (A) – RM85,300.00
Nissan Latio 1.6 ST-L (A) – RM90,300.00
Nissan Latio 1.8 Ti (A) – RM97,100.00
Nissan Latio Sport 1.6 ST-L (A) – RM92,900.00
Too bad the sporty hatchback only comes with the HR16DE 1.6 litre engine, as the 1.8 litre would have been more excited and suited to the car’s sporty appearance. The manual model comes equipped with a 5-speed manual, while the automatic models have 4-speed auto gearboxes. Anyway, only the 1.8 Ti sedan and 1.6 ST-L hatchback model has Nissan’s intelligent key system for keyless entry and start. The 1.8 Ti also has bi-xenon headlamps, with an auto headlights system which turns the headlamps on automatically when it is required.
All variants come with a predominantly beige interior, however the lower end models use tricot seat and door trim, as well as silver trim for the instrument panel and shift knob, while the higher ened ST-L and Ti models use wood trim.
As a quick recap – some performance stats. The 1.6 litre HR16DE-equipped cars make 109PS at 6,000rpm and 153Nm of torque at 4,400rpm. The 1.8 litre MR18DE-equipped cars put out 126 horsepower at 5,200rpm, and 174Nm of torque at 4,800rpm. Both engines have 16 valves, twin cams, and continuously variable valve timing.
