The new Nissan Teana will go stretched in China, catering for Chinese car buyers who want more space in the back. The standard Teana, which is basically the same car as the new 2013 US-spec Nissan Altima, will be launched on the Chinese car market on March 1. The extended Teana will be launched in October, stretched by 11 centimeters. The model’s designation is L42LL.
New news again on the engines; the China-made Nissan Teana will keep the 2.5 liter V6, the 2.0 gets a power upgrade and the 3.5 liter V6 will be deleted. The Chinese Teana will not get the new 2.5 liter four-cylinder that is the base engine in the US-spec Altima. Price for the Nissan Teana will range from 190.000 yuan and ends at 320.000 yuan, cheaper at the top than before because the V6 is gone. The Nissan Teana is made in China by the Dongfeng-Nissan joint venture.
