Nissan has released images of the facelifted Teana sedan for the Chinese market, which is set for market release in this remaining half of the year; the current L33 Nissan Teana was launched in Malaysia in 2014.

On the exterior, the facelifted Teana sports a redesigned front end and headlamps, which employ LED for the main beam as well as LED daytime running lights. These are encased in darkened headlamp surrounds, while a more pronounced hip line along the length of the car helps give it a more dynamic look.

Inside, the interior architecture remains largely unchanged, while the centre console now features an updated infotainment unit with Apple CarPlay for telephone, music and navigation functions.

Powertrain-wise, the China-market Teana continues to use both the 2.0 litre and 2.5 litre petrol engines, with the former producing 150 hp, an increase of 9 hp over its previous iteration, while the 2.5 litre unit produces 186 hp. In both instances, drive is sent to the driven wheels via a continuously variable transmission.
