Model to be launched with 1.6 NA engine.

Nissan is bringing the Tiida nameplate to China with a new model that will be launched on the local market this summer.

Set for debut during the Beijing Auto Show next week, the vehicle is basically a revised version of the Nissan Pulsar, sold across Europe. The Japanese manufacturer has prepared some mild visual changes for the model, including a redesigned front fascia with "V Motion" design, new graphics for the headlights, and new wheel designs.

As far as the interior is concerned, we noticed a new infotainment system and blind spot detection with an indicator on the trim panel of the doors. Other than that, the vehicle looks unchanged compared to the Euro-spec Pulsar, featuring the same instrument cluster, automatic climate control, and center console.

We are still waiting for official technical information, but reports suggest power will be provided by a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter petrol engine that delivers 126 horsepower (93 kilowatts) and 114 pound-feet of torque (154 newton meters). As standard, power will be delivered to the front wheels through a manual gearbox, while a CVT (as seen in the attached images) is optionally available. A 1.2-liter turbo unit is expected to join the portfolio before the end of the year.

The Beijing Auto Show will kick off on 25 this month so stay tuned for more details.
