Nissan Evalia details and impressions
Sriram Narayanan gets a closer look at the upcoming MPV before the drive...
Nissan has announced the Evalia MPV to be launched by the end of September. They call it the 'urban class utility vehicle' and will be powered by the 1.5-litre 85bhp diesel engine — the same one that powers a whole lot of other Nissan and one Renault car.
Nissan seems to be pushing the Evalia's light weight and fuel efficiency as its biggest USPs. The car will have four variants with the top end set to get premium features like a reverse camera, dual airbags, ABS, EBD and brake assist and electrically folding mirrors.
The third row of seats do seem a bit cramped, but this seven-seat MPV does offer more than usual luggage space at the rear with all seven seats up. Plus, it has the very practical sliding doors in the middle.
Nissan is targetting the Evalia at families and at individuals with business requirements. Check out our First Drive report right here.
Nissan has their own version of the popular Duster. And in many ways, the Terrano is a notch above Renault's offering. It's all there in our video review. ..Watch full Video
