Based on the uncomplicated body design of the previous model, the second-generation Teana developers added some lines to emphasize the elegance of the car. It is built on the new D-platform, which significantly increases the structural rigidity compared to the first generation model, providing a more even and smooth movement, good handling, safety and sound insulation. The interior of Teana has also been completely redesigned, with the main emphasis on providing comfort and quality. The noise level has become even smaller - this is a refinement not only with the use of insulating materials, but also due to improved aerodynamics. The salon has a large volume, it is more functional. The second generation of the Nissan Teana business-class sedan was presented at the Beijing Auto Show in 2008, and Russia became the first country where official sales of the model began. Surprisingly, however, in the example with Teana, the manufacturer was able to offer such a rich range for the Russian buyer that all-wheel drive modifications are even presented, which often is not offered by many competitors working in the Russian market.
Russian dealers Nissan offered customers five trim levels Teana with a 2.5-liter engine and three trim models with a 3.5-liter power plant. Standard equipment for all versions of the sedan includes separate climate control for the driver and front passenger, anti-theft alarm and immobilizer, fog lights, cruise control, chip key and engine power button, leather steering wheel and gear lever trim. Among the advantages of the “top-end” configuration, there are eight-way electric driver's seat adjustment with memory function, Ottoman foot support with electric drive for the front passenger seat, and BOSE® 5 audio system. 1 Digital Surround, rear view camera, DVD navigation system, glass roof with sunroof and electric sun blind. The car is fully adapted for Russia - the navigation system uses Russified maps, voice guidance is also carried out in Russian.
For the Russian market, the car is equipped with two six-cylinder V-shaped gasoline engines with a volume of 2.5 liters (capacity 182 liters. s.) or 3.5 liters (249 horsepower). Both power plants deliver 80% of maximum torque at 1,600 rpm, which ensures high reaction speed and smooth acceleration. In addition to them, a 4-cylinder in-line engine of 2.5 liters is offered, in fact, opening the engine row. Its power is 167 hp, and it is put on a version with all-wheel drive. All vehicle modifications are equipped with the new XTRONIC CVT electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission with an adaptive gear ratio change system. The smooth movement of the Nissan Teana is achieved through the use of the newly developed front suspension, as well as through the modernized design of the rear multi-link suspension. In combination with high rigidity of the body, the suspension acts quite effectively when absorbing shock from bumps in the road. A few words about all-wheel drive. The All Mode 4x4 transmission with a multi-plate clutch in the rear wheel drive is the same as on the X-Trail and Murano crossovers with the exception of program control. In difficult modes at speeds up to 30 km / h, blocking is possible (by the “Lock” button), while the distribution along the axes is rigid, in the ratio of 57:43. In addition, the Teana adapted to Russian conditions has increased its clearance to 150 mm.
Teana's varied safety systems assist the driver in maintaining safe driving conditions (xenon headlights and a rear view camera), helping to recover from dangerous situations and restoring safe driving (braking assistance systems and directional stability control), and minimize damage when a collision is inevitable (airbags and seat belts, durable body, active head restraints, etc. P.). To confirm the figures, we note that, compared with the old model, the torsional rigidity of the body increased by 40% due to the greater use of high-strength steels.
The second generation of Nissan Teana has offered such a technical variety, which previously buyers of passenger cars had only dreamed of. At least the fact that it is now possible to choose 4WD speaks for itself, and even at an affordable price for a business class. In the secondary market, these modifications make up a fairly good assortment for selection, which means that buyers liked it. Versions with 2.5-liter engines present the maximum choice, but luxurious 3.5-liter modifications form a rather serious group.
