Since its launch in 2007, Nissan Livina has always attracted the attention of MPV enthusiasts. Nissan Livina provides SV, XV and Ultimate 3 variants. Two engine options are provided to consumers, namely 1,500 cc and 1,800 cc. In addition to the seven-seater Livina, Nissan Livina also provides a 5-seater service for consumers who love compact cars. In February 2019, PT Nissan Motor Indonesia once again launched the latest generation of Livina, named All New Nissan Livina 2020.
It looks very different from the previous generation. The new Nissan Livina 2020 uses the Mitsubishi Xpander platform. But the new Nissan Livina 2020 is not just a twin of Mitsubishi Xpander. Especially from the details, you will find that compared with the Mitsubishi Xpander, the new Nissan Livina 2020 also has its own bright spots.
On the whole, the appearance of the new Nissan Livina 2020 is very similar to that of the Mitsubishi Xpander. Especially their side design is almost indistinguishable.However, the front and back can be distinguished. Nissan uses the V Motion grille design on the front to embed its brand identity.
The back is equipped with anti-skid plates and other decorations on the lower bumper, which is very different from Xpander and even cooler.
For the lighting system, it can be said that Livina can well facilitate the driver’s sight, even if the main light still uses halogen. Almost all Livina variants have fog lights.
Livina’s VE and VL variants also add automatic folding rearview mirrors, which can be done electronically by users easily setting the rearview mirror.
It must be said that the internal settings of the new Nissan Livina 2020 are actually very similar to its twin Xpander. However, Livina uses dark colors as the main color inside the car, making the interior look more sporty.
If you buy the Livina VL AT variant, you will also get leather material as the inner packaging material. Other deformed internal packaging still uses fabric.
In order to adjust the driving position according to the posture of each driver, the Livina steering gear can be tilted and telescopic. There is also a seat height adjuster drive, but only for the VL AT model Livina.
In addition to sharing the results of the platform with Xpander, the interesting thing worth highlighting in the second-generation Livina is its security. As an LMPV car, in fact, its safety support must be praised.
It is normal for the front passenger to use two airbags. Pretensioners and force limiters on seat belts are also common. What Livina needs to be appreciated is the vehicle dynamics control, traction control system and hill start assist functions. It is very rare for LMPV to have this safety feature.
Even Nissan offers a complete parking sensor with a rear-view camera. However, these features can only be obtained by choosing Livina VL AT as the most expensive variant.
As a safety protection function for all variants, Nissan provides immobilizers and automatic hazard lights on emergency brakes and brakes with ABS and EBD.
In my opinion, it is wrong to simply regard the new Nissan Livina as the twin of Mitsubishi Xpander. In the second generation of products, the new Nissan Livina 2020 has features that surpass Mitsubishi Xpander, which allows it to continue to maintain its LMPV image. In terms of price, the new Nissan Livina 2020 ranges from 2.0-2.5 printed shields, similar to the Mitsubishi Xpander. You can choose from a comprehensive consideration of cost performance, refering to AutoFun.
