Sport Review

When killing in front of the television I occasionally across a reality TV show Wife Swap, where two are taken from their and well¦ swapped. The effects of are always suitably dramatic as a has to adapt to an all-new matriarchal With its new Tiida, Nissan has a wife swap of its own by retiring the and swapping it for the unfamiliar Tiida.

The was an evergreen favorite on our streets for two decades and was the type of reliable car around families and always with a heavy workload. the Pulsar is gone and has left some large high-heels for the new to fill.

One look from any angle that the Tiida has some charm, but falls short of totally gorgeous. Strong and sharp angles give the an almost manic appearance. But its split grille and intricate front and back the Tiida never be accused of being

The quirky styling has an obvious flavour courtesy of co-development Nissan and French partner The wheelbase has been lengthened by over the Pulsar and the Tiida noticeably taller resulting in a interior space for its class. benefit of the new form is fantastic that help attain an 7.6L/100km fuel economy.

  the exterior is modern with a sense of style if not quite the wow really needed at the meet and stage.

Step inside and the extroverted is quickly forgotten, replaced by an and refined cabin. Grey/black plastics mingle with of metal-look silver to provide a relaxed atmosphere. Dash is intuitive and user friendly, the dials are large, separately and easily read.

Fit and finish is with a feeling of quality to all surfaces and moving parts. The interior spaciousness manifests in generous headroom and a comfortable layout. Front seats are and supportive and the rear bench is of seating three adults the banging-elbow discomfort that plagues small cars. The rear seat is equipped with an out-of-favour lap belt, may put off the safety conscious.

The driving position is elevated and up which adds to the good created by generous windows. The hatch has a large, well-shaped area, and the rear seat has a useful 60/40 split to luggage capacity. The Tiida#8217;s is very comfortable, well and potentially hardwearing making it a for the Pulsars practicality.

When with the daily chores the gets the job done, its 1.8-litre DOHC four-cylinder produces and 174Nm or torque. The engine is round town but has little pace. That said, it comfortable in the low-rev range and is a motorway cruiser.

The four-speed transmission has a smooth shift and remains attentive, but can be guilty of up prematurely and robbing the driver of an more performance.

The Tiida is equipped with an power steering system is light and razor sharp if not consistent with the vehicles relaxed driver experience. the Tiida#8217;s handling characteristics are with ample grip in conditions and minimal understeer pushed hard. There is an level of body roll, is a negative effect from the tall stance and accented by the elevated driving position.

suspension keeps the Tiida over bumps and uneven surfaces, but it’s a firm and not ideal on gravel or loose The Tiida is a refined, no fuss, and car to drive and unlike an episode of Swap there are no dramas.

The Tiida brings a good equipment level for its $29,450 tag, ABS brakes with EBD brake force distribution), belt pretensioners, air-con, entry, and a CD stereo. The Sport is dolled up with a rear spoiler and alloy wheels.

It may a while to forget the Nissan but the Tiida is a worthy replacement a character all its own. There are hints of French styling and refinement, leaving no doubt the Tiida is born from marriage to Renault. If you’re a true sports hatch power and dynamic handling, you have to look elsewhere.

If in the market for a highly practical, easy to drive car with a of flair and a good price accept the Tiida into family for its merits and don’t back.
