1 generation
As you know, in 2000 the Pulsar model series was discontinued, and instead the Nissan Tiida car occupied a niche with a 5th-size body. At first it was offered in the hatchback. But a similar car with a sedan body was soon put into production. This car was named Tiida Latio and went on sale in October of the same year. When creating the model by Nissan, it was decided to try to make a car that would not be inferior in any way to its imported analogues in terms of quality or interior space. Naturally, the appearance of the conceived car should also be peculiar, so the Tiida asset has an original appearance, this is especially striking for the hatchback with its interesting design of the rear. But the main thing is still the interior and the useful volume of the cabin. What happened as a result?
 As for the interior design, everything is impressive here. The carefully designed interior surprises with quality. Take, for example, the seats. In terms of comfort, they are in no way inferior to the seats in the Teana cabin - the same voluminous and soft. If you measure the useful length of the passenger compartment, it will be at the level of a high-end Cima car. As for the rear seats, then, perhaps, they make an even greater impression than in the Cima cabin. In general, four trim levels were offered, where in the base 15S there are climate control, wood-like finish, CD player, tinted windows. Options: xenon headlights, front and rear spoilers, navigation with HDD. Leather seats become the standard high-end option in the G trim levels, along with leather steering wheel braid, front fog lights, 15-inch alloy wheels, engine start button, etc.

 The power unit abounds with new products. Take, for example, the newly developed HR series engine - a 4-cylinder engine with two camshafts. The engine capacity is 1.5 liters and the power is 109 hp. He works in conjunction with the variator. This combination has significantly reduced fuel consumption. In this version, Tiida is capable of driving up to 20 km on one liter of fuel. Superior aerodynamics (0.29 drag coefficient) provides even greater fuel economy. In addition to the variator, this motor is equipped with an automatic 4-speed gearbox, which is offered on all machines of the lower price group, as well as on modifications equipped with an all-wheel drive system. Since 2005, a new engine has been added - already 1.8 liters and 128 hp. It comes in combination with a CVT or a 6-speed manual gearbox.

 Nissan Tiida front suspension - strut The back is a torsion bar. The all-wheel drive system means the modern “e-4WD” system, which is very effective in terms of fuel economy and quick response when connecting the rear axle. The wheelbase is a decent 2600 mm, which provides a more comfortable movement. The minimum turning radius is also quite good - 5.2 meters. If we evaluate the cargo capacity of the new car and the arrangement of the luggage compartment as a whole, then by this criterion the Tiida model can quite successfully compete with the “clean” station wagon Nissan Primera. Yes, and the sedan made such a voluminous trunk, which is not often found in other four-door competitors in the class. No joke, as much as 467 liters.

 Safety Nissan Tiida is at a very high level. The participation of this car in NASVA crash tests allowed him to get six out of six stars for protecting the driver and five stars for passenger safety - all thanks to the special design of the ruggedized body. Standard equipment includes front airbags, belts with pretensioners and load limiters, child seat lock mechanism, active head restraints, door stiffeners, ABS (anti-lock braking system), EBD (electronic brake force distribution system), Brake Assist (auxiliary system braking). Options - side airbags and curtain airbags, auto-adjustment of headlights.

 The Nissan Tiida is a perfect example of a combination of compactness and outstanding comfort indicators inherent in a higher class, including excellent driving performance. All these characteristics of the model became the reason for high interest in it in different markets, production was opened in different countries. As for Russia, and specifically right-hand drive Tiida, they perfectly complement the left-hand drive segment, which, unfortunately, does not offer the technical diversity that is observed in Japan.
The Nissan Tiida car appeared on the Russian market as a replacement for the Nissan Almera sedan and as a follower of the best traditions of roomy golf hatchbacks. The buyer is offered 4- and 5-door versions of this model, produced at a factory in Mexico, and the modification of the car itself is North American. In America, the car is known as the Nissan Versa.
 The main feature of this car is a very roomy and comfortable lounge with wide front seats. The rear seats of the hatchback can move back and forth along the rails by 240 mm, increasing legroom or luggage space from 272 to 463 liters. The boot volume of the sedan is 467 liters.

 The basic equipment of the Nissan Tiida in the Comfort package includes air conditioning, a central locking with remote control, power windows on all doors, electrically adjustable and heated mirrors, a CD audio system with Bluetooth and hands free, four speakers and steering wheel controls. The fabric seats of the car are electrically heated, and the wheels are “shod” in steel 15-inch wheels with decorative caps. In the Elegance modification, the car interior is characterized by the presence of climate control, front and rear armrests, two additional speakers and an on-board computer. Also in this configuration, the car has a chip key for remote control of doors and contactless engine start, rain and light sensors, fog lights and alloy wheels. In the maximum configuration of Tekna, the interior of the car is trimmed with leather, the steering wheel, the manual gear lever are also in leather braid, and the CD changer is included in the audio system. Since 2010, the car has been restyled. The changes affected the appearance, materials and colors of the upholstery, a navigation system was added.

 The Nissan Tiida is equipped with one of two 1.6-liter gasoline engines with 110 hp. The transmission is a manual or automatic transmission. The drive for cars for our market is only front-wheel drive. The base engine provides high fuel economy - gas consumption is 6.9 liters on the "mechanics" and 7.4 on the "machine". An 1.8 engine with 126 hp, which is offered as an alternative, consumes 7.8 liters per hundred kilometers, and acceleration to 100 km / h in this version, which is equipped only with "mechanics", takes 10 , 4 seconds. Tiida with a 1.6 engine is not so fast - with a manual transmission, acceleration will take 11.1 seconds, and with an automatic transmission - 12.6.

 The front suspension of the Nissan Tiida is made on MacPherson struts, and the rear suspension is torsion bar. Due to the long base of 2600 mm and a wide rut, which is generally uncharacteristic for most cars of this class, Tiida has high comfort in movement, excellent stability. In terms of sound insulation, too, everything is on top. On both axes, disc brakes are installed, providing excellent braking dynamics. Steering - with electric power, changing the degree of control acuity, easy to maneuver and noticeably “heavier” steering wheel at high speeds.

 Nissan Tiida comes standard with two front and two side airbags, as well as active front seat head restraints that provide extra protection against a rear impact. In addition, the car is equipped with electronic systems ABS, EBD and Brake Assist, which constitute a complex of active protection. In the expensive versions there are curtain-type airbags and side front airbags, an exchange rate stability system. This whole set allows you to put Tiida in the category of the safest cars.

 Interest in the Nissan Tiida is largely restrained - perhaps due to the original design (someone might find it unattractive). But behind the peculiar appearance is a car with an excellent set of characteristics. He occupied a very successful consumer niche, including the price one. The latter is especially true for used cars, which are pretty good in value, despite the fact that many cars are offered in the maximum configurations. Of the Nissan Tiida offered in the secondary market, the main share is cars with a 1.6-liter engine, mainly with an automatic transmission.
