Nissan Teana Overview
The 2018 Nissan Teana is a third-generation D-segment 4-door midsize sedan first introduced in 2013 as the successor to the iconic Nissan Cefiro. Locally-assembled in Tan Chong Motor assembly plant in Serendah, the three variants on offer are the Nissan Teana 2.0 XE, Nissan Teana 2.0 XL and the Nissan Teana 2.5 XV.
The Nissan Teana codenamed the L33, shares most of the platform and mechanicals with its North American cousin, the Nissan Altima which is built and sold primarily in North America. Aimed squarely at the popular Toyota Camry, Nissan has got some serious competition. While on paper they managed to deliver for most parts, it remained the less popular choice among Malaysians comparatively.
Rivals for the Nissan Teana includes the likes of Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Mazda 6, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Volkswagen Passat and the Ford Mondeo. While offering similar if not better specifications, the Nissan Teana was competitively priced at RM 139,800 when launched.
