The all-new Nissan Livina X-Gear has now officially introduced by Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn. Bhd. and it is also the first CKD B-segment cross-over in Malaysia. The Livina X-Gear is designed to be a fun and versatile that combines aggressive SUV-inspired exterior styling.
“Since its launch in 2007, the Grand Livina MPV has established itself as the best-selling non-national MPV satisfying the needs of many families in Malaysia. With the two-row Livina X-Gear, we are now targeting a new segment of customers who want a stylish cross-over to reflect their individuality, yet remaining practical and economical in everyday use,” said Dato’ Dr Ang Bon Beng, the Executive Director of ETCM.
The Livina X-Gear is mechanically based on the Grand Livina 1.6L but the outer shell is redesigned with an exclusive front grille, SUV-inspired bumpers with silver sump guards, muscular over-fenders, side mouldings with silver finishers and roof rails.
The interior of the Livina X-Gear is claimed to be as spacious yet comfortable. It is complemented by 60:40 split-fold rear seats that double the available luggage space from 383L to 769L when folded down. Moreover, the Livina X-Gear’s roof rail has a further load carrying capacity of 25kg.
For safety aspect, the all-new Nissan Livina X-Gear comes with standard dual air bags, ABS, EBD and BA. It is powered by the proven and fuel-efficient 1.6-litre HR16DE all-aluminium four-cylinder engine that produces 105PS and 150Nm of torque, mated to a smooth-shifting electronically-controlled 4-speed automatic transmission. The X-Gear also delivers a commendable 13.8KM/L in terms of fuel efficiency.
The all-new Nissan Livina X-Gear comes in 5 colours; Tungsten Silver, Twilight Grey, Brilliant White, Supreme Black and Sunburst Orange. The Livina X-Gear is now selling at RM 82,800.00 OTR (inclusive of insurance, road tax, registration fee and ownership claim fee) for Peninsular Malaysia with a 3-year or 100,000km warranty (whichever comes first).
Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM) is currently offering attractive low interest hire purchase rates starting from 0.88% per annum. Livina X-Gear buyers will also receive free Solar Gard (front) + Armorcoat (side & rear) tinting package worth RM1,400.00 during this promotion period which ends on 30th October 2011.
