The sixth generation Nissan Teana is a decent all round machine - neat, comfortable and pleasant.

On one hand we have the high-riding SUVs and crossovers, and on the other, mid-sized sedans, which are still the local bulk automotive commodity.

This segment has never been more competitive. Heavy hitters in the mid-sized segment include the standard-bearing Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, as well as the Chevrolet Malibu, Kia Optima, Mazda6, and Volkswagen Passat. What about Nissan?

At 4,875mm by 1,830mm by 1,490mm (L x W x H), the new Teana is 15mm longer, 35mm wider and 5mm taller than its predecessor

Well, Nissan's very own Teana was first introduced in Singapore in 2003. Originally and more commonly known as the Cefiro, this nameplate was discontinued in 2008.

The sixth generation Teana replaces the previous model with three variants - a 2.0-litre, a 3.5-litre (arriving next year) as well as the 2.5-litre, which we have here with us.

Exterior

Borrowing styling cues from the Sylphy, the Teana appears to be gunning for a younger crowd. It dons Nissan's new design language, with a more robust front end, a sharp V-shaped chrome grille and a more aggressive-looking apron with a trapezoidal slatted intake.


The car sports new fog lamp housings, too, and the chrome strips that emanated from the fog lamps on the previous car are gone, although they continue to run along the side of the body.

Boomerang head and tail lamp lodgements inspired by those found on the 370Z help to lend a sense of sportiness

There is now a more athletic look of the car thanks to the shoulder line, body crease and chrome strip sloping upwards towards the back.

The rear quarter window is also now smaller and the LED tail lamps mirror the inward kink of the headlamps. On the whole, the new Teana is curvier and more muscular than its predecessor.
