Nissan today released information abouts the 2007 Nissan Tiida (pronounced Tee-da for those of you who haven’t seen the horrible TV ads). The Tiida is a shadow of the car it replaces, the Nissan Pulsar, and whilst Nissan’s big gamble of pushing the Tiida towards the young female segment failed miserably, they are back again and trying even harder this year.

The Japanese Built Tiida comes with a relatively weak 1.8 litre engine putting out 93kW of power and 174Nm of troque. Unfortunately, the vehicle is still equiped with a 4-speed automatic transmission (A/T), or for the adventurous female, there is always the 6-speed manual.

There are four variations to the Tiida,

  1. The Nissan Tiida ST – $17,990 Manual Only
  2. The Nissan Tiida ST-L – $19,990 for the manual – $22,240 for the Auto
  3. The Nissan Tiida Q Hatch – $22,990 for the manual – $25,240 for the Auto
  4. The Nissan Tiida Ti Sedan – $25,240 Auto Only

The Basic Model, Tiida ST comes standard with:

  • 1.8 DOHC 16 Valve 4 cylinder engine
  • 6-speed manual transmission (Optional 4 speed automatic transmission)
  • Air conditioning
  • ABS brakes with BA and EBD
  • Radio/CD player with 4 speakers
  • Cruise control (A/T only)
  • Charcoal cloth seat trim
  • 60/40 split fold rear seat (hatch only)
  • Remote keyless entry
  • Vanity mirrors
  • Driver and front passenger SRS airbags
  • Front seatbelt pre-tensioners with load limiters
  • Engine immobiliser
  • Body coloured front & rear bumpers
  • Body coloured power door mirrors
  • Cup and bottle holders
  • 3 year / 100,000 km warranty
  • 3 year 24 hour roadside assistance

The Model above the ST, the Tiida ST-L comes with all of the ST features plus:

  • Charcoal tricot seat cloth trim
  • Front to rear curtain SRS airbags
  • Power windows
  • 15″ alloy wheels
  • Rear headrests

The once formidable Pulsar Q has now been replaced by the not so formidable, Tiida Q which gets addition features on top of the ST-L:

  • Charcoal premium seat trim
  • Leather steering wheel
  • Metallic look dash trim
  • Radio/CD player with 6 speakers
  • Front fog lights
  • Rear spoiler
  • Sliding rear seat
  • Front map lights
  • Front and rear armrests

2007 Nissan Tiida Interior

And the top of the range Tiida Ti Sedan comes with all features above plus:

  • 4 speed automatic transmission (A/T) only
  • 60/40 split fold rear seat with boot access
  • Rear boot spoiler

This car isn’t the best money can buy, for those who are looking at buying a similar sized car, you would do yourself a world of favours having a look at the range from Mazda, perhaps the Mazda 2 or even the Mazda 3 Neo. If you’re going for the base model Tiida SL, for $20,000 you have to remember that you are in Toyota Yaris and Mazda 2 category.

Whilst the Yaris has an interior better suited to a 30 year old US Submarine, the car it self comes very well equipped, if you don’t mind a little less power. Definitely check out the Mazda 3 Neo if your going to opt out for the Tiida Ti Sedan!
