And then there’s the Livina, a multipurpose vehicle that is best defined by its wide range of accessories for comfort and enjoyment. The Livina features a 1.8L engine that can easily kick-out 126 horsepower. This coupled with a spacious interior and well-structured seating design makes the car a real multipurpose gem.

And then we have the X-Trail, a compact SUV that’s made for the city and the countryside alike. The X-Trail boasts a 4×4 drive with a 2.4L engine at the top-end; a lower-end model features a 2.0L engine and a 2WD.
The X-Trail is sure to impress as its wide and flat design allows for more stability and comfort no matter the type of road you are navigating. It may be a bit costly though especially at the top-end but with all the magnificent features, you don’t even have to think twice when considering the X-Trail.

From an all-purpose SUV to Nissan’s face of elegance: the Sentra has been making waves for quite a long time and now and its beauty is still a thing to behold. It’s simply a wonderful sedan for the family to enjoy and it has proven its worth since its inception.
But while the Sentra might look purely sophisticated, but you ought to know that it can pack some grunt power too. Its top-end model is packed with a punch in the form of a 1.6L GS engine that can take you up to as much as 180 km/h. That’s a class act for the racer boy in you to drool on!

Or if you want to satisfy your senses with more elegance, the Teana is a class act way beyond compare. The Teana’s VQ engine is at the pinnacle of the world’s best engines. If you’re in for more details, we need not say that a V6, DOHC, 24-Valve, in V-type engine type is something that you won’t find anywhere.
The Teanas executive look is best defined by a top-load sunroof. The LED lights featured by the car can only make it more beautiful; may it be at night or in broad daylight. You will surely turn heads with this car.
