Teana is a luxury mid-size car, which was originally introduced in 2003. So far, we have seen three generations of it and current model is present from 2013. Third-generation model is nowadays pretty much a rebadged version of Altima that is offered for North American market. According to the latest reports, Altima will be significantly redesigned for 2016 year model, so it is expected that 2016 Nissan Teana will follow those changes too. It is expected that modifications will be made both outside and inside the car, while engine lineup will remain unchanged.
2016 Nissan Teana redesign
The 2016 Nissan Teana will continue to ride on the same company’s D platform, which is used for all Nissan’s mid-size cars, and also for several Renault models. On the other side, exterior will come with several design modifications. Those changes won’t be radical, but it will be good enough to attract wider range of customers. Expect to see tweaks in all areas of the car, but most of them on the front end. When it is about interior, it is still unknown will this refresh include only some new features or some styling changes too. In any case, we at least expect to see some new, better quality materials (although current-ones are already on the very high level) in 2016 Teana.
