It’s a well-known thing that many carmakers are introducing models that are designed for specific markets. In order to meet the demands of drivers from certain parts of the world, these models feature various distinctive design solutions. One of these models is the Nissan Lannia. This small sedan has been introduced in 2015 and it is sold primarily in China. Therefore, its specs are in obvious accordance with preferences of Chinese drivers. It is primarily an affordable car, so you won’t find too many hi-end tech features and similar things that are typical for Nissan models on western markets. Still, that doesn’t mean there is no room for constant updates of the current model. If we can rely on the latest reports, the 2020 Nissan Lannia is about to receive a mid-cycle refresh.
This update is about to bring a lot of novelties and the new model is about to come by the end of the year.
2020 Nissan Lannia Changes
As we already mentioned, this compact sedan came four years ago, so it seems like perfect timing for a major update. Changes for this occasion will be numerous. Of course, the focus will be on the styling. The current model already features a pretty attractive look, which is based on the brand’s latest design language. However, that doesn’t mean there is no room for further updates. We expect to see a fine number of revisions and most of them should come at the front. Count on the further development of the company’s well-known V-Motion grille design. For this occasion, it will become even bigger and more prominent, according to the latest reports. Also, certain revisions in other areas of the car are possible as well. A few novelties could come to the rear end, while we also count on typical updates like new wheels and color options.
The Chinese market is a little bit specific, so it’s no wonder that this sedan comes with a little bit different interior layout compared to what we usually see from Nissan models. Considering that the Lannia competes in a pretty crowded segment of affordable cars, it’s no wonder that the interior quality isn’t on par with models like Altima, for example. Still, the cabin looks nice, especially in terms of the dashboard design, which is attractive and well-built.
For the upcoming update, the 2020 Nissan Lannia will probably come with a couple of novelties, but the overall cabin layout definitely won’t change. The focus will be on new features, so count that the new model will come with a longer list of standard equipment. Also, we could see a couple of aesthetical updates, particularly in terms of new color schemes and similar things.
A big part of 2020 Nissan Lannia updates should be new standard features. The current model already comes with a quite decent amount of standard equipment, but there is always room for improvements. For example, base models currently lack is some pretty essential things when it comes to the exterior features. Therefore, we could see additions in the next year, so the 2020 Nissan Lannia could finally come standard with things like alloy wheels, heated mirrors, fog lights, and similar things. Of course, novelties on the inside are expected as well. For example, a 7-inch touchscreen could become standard.
When it comes to safety, the current model is pretty basic, at least when it comes to entry-level models. It’s missing some of the pretty essential airbags, so we count on improvements for the next year. Also, a rearview camera should become standard in the 2020 Nissan Lannia.
2020 Nissan Lannia Engine
We presume that the 2020 Nissan Lannia will carry on in the same way when it comes to powertrain. That would mean the same 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. This is a little bit older-generation powertrain, so a max output goes just around 125 horsepower. You don’t get any spectacular performances but on the other side, its reliability and durability are amazing. The engine can be paired with either manual transmission or CVT. In both cases, the ride quality is very good. Of course, the manual gearbox is more interesting to drive, but the CVT ensures a slightly better fuel economy. The 2020 Nissan Lannia will need about 11.5 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour.
Some reports are suggesting that we could see an electrified version introduced for the next year. Allegedly, the 2020 Nissan Lannia would come with a hybrid powertrain, but the fact is that there is still no official confirmation.
2020 Nissan Lannia Release Date and Price
Considering the updates, the 2020 Nissan Lannia will probably come a little bit earlier than usual. Still, it will remain within the last quarter of the year. When it comes to the price, we don’t expect changes. Base models go around 106.000 Chinese Yuan, which is around 15.500 dollars according to current exchange rates.
