September will surely be full of excitement from what we see… Besides Mahindra Quanto and Mercedes-Benz B-Class, Nissan Evalia is also coming in this month. The launch will be a phased launch, beginning on 25th September at New Delhi. Next to see the launch will be Mumbai on 26th September then Chennai launch will be on 27th September and finally on 28th September Bangalore will witness the launch of Nissan's MUV. The Urban Class Utility Vehicle, as Nissan terms the Nissan Evalia, will be the first MUV in this segment with sliding doors. It is expected to be priced somewhere between Rs. 9 – 12 lakh.
Overall Evalia has a boxy yet premium design to it. In the cabin, Nissan’s upcoming flaunts a premium styling along with good quality plastic and fit. The USP of this car will be the space that it offers. The legroom and shoulder-space makes the seating very comfortable and cabin very roomy.
Coming to the powertrain, Evalia is powered with the K9K 1.5-litre diesel engine delivering 85bhp of power at 3750rpm and 200Nm of torque at 2,000rpm. In terms of drivability the car works with finesse along with very efficient handling and comfort.
Post the Nissan Evalia test drive , one thing is certain, this one from the stables of Nissan will be worth a watch for the competitors and for the entire auto industry as well.
