Test drove 2.5l verson of this car in late March. To be honest, I'd initially struck the Teana off my list after reading some of the reviews on sg carmart. However, after testing numerous other Japanese and Korean cars, I eventually decided to give it a try. I wasn't disappointed. This car was, by far, the most comfortable of all the cars I test drove. And it has to do with their zero gravity seats. It's hard to describe, and you just have to try it for yourself. Overall, the car was really smooth and quiet. Road bums were well absorbed and it had a nice feeling of luxury. As an executive sedan for regular driving to work and on weekends, it's really a great car. Performance wise, I felt the 2,5l had sufficient pick up from a complete stop. It's pretty much a great family car and i almost bought it. The two things that put me off eventually buying this were the footbrake and that the car didn't have a manual mode. I'm particular but, in this day, the footbrake somehow just seems a bit archaic, especially as so many cars today come with electronic parking brake. And no manual mode just made this a little boring for me. But other than that, i really loved the car and its design. It's plush and elegant. Although I eventually settled on another car, this ranks pretty highly in my book and i think is worth a test drive at the very least.
What I like
It's remarkably comfortable
space is more than adequate for driver and four passengers to feel comfortable
quiet and luxurious
Liked everything about the car except for a couple of things
What I do not like
no manual mode
no electronic parking brake ( uses footbrake)
entertainment system is nothing to shout about
I went for test drive on Toyota Carmry, Mazda 6, Kia Optima and Nissan Teana. I end up with Nissan Teana 2.5 XV.
I use my Nissan Teana 2.5 XV for over a year now. I have no problem with this car at all. Only at the beginning the radio reception was not good but after I sent my car back to Nissan service centre and they just updated the software for me and it's turn out excellent with BOSE speaker in front. It likes you are sitting in a good audio room.
For petrol consumption it's quite good on highway. One night I drove from Raffle golf and country club back to Tampines using cruse control at 90km/hr. And 80km/hr inside the MCE tunnel. The consumption shown at the destination at 20.3Km/L. However I'm normally using my car about 60% In town and about 40% On highway average 1 tank of fuel is about 11 - 12 Km/L.
CVT transmission, for some one who's never driven gear CVT before may feel that the car is quite slow to move out from the stopping point. That is just a feeling, in fact it's not slow and once it's kick-in it's fast and smooth.
What I like
- Luxurious in side
- Good cornering, reliable
