Nissan says its new model is aimed at trendsetting young Chinese owners in their 20s and 30s, in a car designed to combine the best of the hatch and sedan as a “sedan theory-breaker”.
The Lannia is a joint effort by Nissan’s China-based design team and the Nissan Global Design Centre, which captures Nissan’s latest design language.
The front end, however, could also arguably be a nod to the Nissan Sport Sedan concept, unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show early last year.
Inside, the Lannia features an upmarket audio system with smartphone connectivity, a seven-inch display screen and a designed-in-China infotainment system which Nissan says focuses interior controls on the driver.
The driver also gets a leather-wrapped steering wheel and chrome gear knob, while passengers (and driver) get illuminated cup holders, leather seats and centre armrest and a chrome finish to the door handles and air vents.
The 2015 Nissan Lannia goes on sale exclusively in China in the Australian Spring, and we aren’t expecting this one to venture outside the Chinese market anytime soon.
