Please read the full press statement below to get more ideas and further immense yourself if you do fancy the all new Nissan Teana.

KUALA LUMPUR (23 November 2010) – Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM) today launched the all-new NISSAN TEANA luxury sedan. The launch of this flagship sedan marks the long awaited return for Nissan and Tan Chong Motor to the executive luxury sedan segment in the Malaysian automotive market. At the heart of the all-new NISSAN TEANA is the concept of offering customers a dynamic and superior sedan with an attractive modern luxurious styling.

The all-new NISSAN TEANA reflects Nissan/ETCM’s commitment to constantly offer high quality products that maximize the pleasure of driving and the pride of owning a NISSAN. The all-new NISSAN TEANA is available in 3 variants - the 2.0L and 2.5L V6 that are assembled in Tan Chong Motor’s state-of-the-art Serendah Plant, and the TEANA 3.5L V6 that is fully imported from Japan.

Coined from the Native American word meaning “dawn”, the name TEANA denotes the beginning of an all-new modern luxury sedan.

With its modern styling, impressive ride comfort and thoughtful appointments, the all-new NISSAN TEANA is designed and engineered to provide lasting value in a luxury sedan reflecting a new dimension of hospitality, superb comfort and quiet, roomy interior.

Modern Luxury Appearance

The all-new NISSAN TEANA comes with a meticulously executed exterior design to present a modern, artistic form. This is defined by its bold yet elegant character line to form a sweeping arc extending from the front to the rear of the vehicle to express the dynamic confidence and elegant manner which this vehicle performs.

To project its modern luxury appearance, the all-new NISSAN TEANA’s exterior design style is highlighted by:

• A grille based on a horizontal bar arrangement to impart a 3-D look with elegant fins that appear to have been sculpted from a sphere.

• Headlamps designed with a vertical motif finished with a 3-dimensional jewel-like brilliance.

• Side body treatment that showcases the character line that is complemented with side mouldings executed in a sword motif to impart a sense of fine quality.

• Elegant window lines to emphasize the luxurious space of the interior.

• Rear combination LED lights that are sculpted to project outward from the body creating an impressive and wide-looking rear.

The all-new NISSAN TEANA has an artistic interior with wave-like design themes to further accentuate the modern luxury appearance with an emphasis on comfort, relaxation and sensuality. Key features of the all-new NISSAN TEANA’s interior are:

• Dashboard that “float” on top of a large wood panel to create a sense of being gently enveloped in high quality
