Auto Shanghai will be welcoming two new production Nissan models: the Lannia and Murano Hybrid. The visitors will also see the GT-R Nismo and 370Z Nismo. Lannia was teased several times already, but today is the day of the big reveal. With it the model is showcasing its fresh persona and youthful character. This car is actually Nissan's first product that was specifically developed for the young Chinese customers.
If the exterior of the Lannia looks somewhat familiar to you, this is because it is actually an evolution of the Friend-ME concept which we have seen debuting in China last year. The design of the car was inspired by the smooth, but at the same time muscular movements of wild animals, which makes it have unique personality and dynamic characteristics.
As we can see, the new production car in Nissan's line-up has retained its predecessor's geometric lines and edgy surface. We also witness the V-motion grille, kick-up C-pillar, floating roof and boomerang-shaped LED lights.
Is there something different throughout the interior? Well, the cockpit still focuses on the driver and keeps the great comfort values. Of course connectivity was a key focus in the design, since the Lannia must attract people in their 20s and 30s. In other words, the car is equipped with infotainment technologies such as advanced audio system with smart-phone connectivity and a 7-inch multimedia display screen.
Other important features in the Lannia are regarding the safety. The car has been equipped with Nissan's new Safety Shield technologies and in addition it was engineered to achieve competitive levels of fuel efficiency. Unfortunately, the model will be distributed in China only.
