Yesterday, we showed you spyshots of the facelifted Nissan Livina X-Gear undergoing testing in Malaysia. Today, we have spy pics of the Nissan Grand Livina facelift without any disguise, snapped by reader Shamsul Emry at the KLIA cargo area – thanks mate!
This is the rear end the taped-up purple X-Gear was trying to hide – the facelifted Livina range (five-seater X-Gear, seven-seater Grand Livina) features longer tail lamps that eat into the tailgate, as seen in the initial set of leaked pics from China.
Compared to yesterday’s spypics, we can now clearly see how the refreshed Grand Livina will look like, without the SUV-style body cladding the X-Gear wears. The tailgate Nissan emblem sits on metal here, not a raised plastic base like on the X-Gear.
Shamsul’s handiwork also shows us the facelifted Nissan Livina range’s new face. Compared to the current Livina, the headlamps are now in a sharper triangular shape, while the chrome grille is in a sweeping V-shape with a flat base. Once again, it’s similar to what we’ve seen from the Chinese leaked pics.
This silver unit is most likely a foreign-made unit arriving for local testing or other internal purposes, and not a product of Tan Chong’s Serendah plant. We’re speculating a year-end debut for the locally-assembled facelifted Grand Livina/Livina X-Gear.
