Here’s another ‘coming soon to Malaysia’ car spotted at the 2014 Bangkok Motor Show, the Nissan Teana. The L33 Teana made its Thai and ASEAN debut in October last year, and will be launched in Malaysia this year after smaller sedan sibling Sylphy.
The new Teana is available in the Kingdom with 2.0 and 2.5 litre engines, and in five variant forms. The MR20DE four-pot features in the 2.0 versions (XE, XL and XL Navi) – it has 136 hp and 190 Nm. Moving up, the QR25DE (also a four-cylinder, V6 no longer offered) in the XV and XV Navi variants offers 173 hp and 234 Nm. Both are mated to Nissan’s Xtronic CVT gearbox.
Available kit includes a ’3D Display’ in the meter panel (shows Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning, trip computer, navigation and Bluetooth connection), Around View Monitor, bi-xenons with AFS and a nine-speaker Bose sound system.
