Nissan Motor Co., Ltd (NML) today announced the release of the all-new Livina C-Gear (called the 'X-Gear' in other markets). The introduction of this model in China underscores the importance of what is now the third largest market for Nissan after the United States and Japan.

"The Livina series is proving to be a valuable addition to the Nissan range across the world" said Colin Dodge, Nissan's Senior Vice President for Global Overseas Markets. "The C-Gear is an important addition to the range and demonstrates our commitment to the China and to other significant global growth markets," continued Dodge.

Based on the Livina hatchback, this functional and stylish 5-seater vehicle broadens the appeal of this already popular series of cars. Inside, there's a sporty look and feel manifested through the combination of a black interior with silver finish. The Livina C-Gear has spacious front and rear seating with ample space extending to the trunk which tops its class for loading capacity up to 383 liters (VDA).

The Livina C-Gear has a 1.6-liter gasoline engine with the choice of four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmissions. Like other Livina models, the C-Gear comes from the design and engineering teams at Nissan Technical Center in Atsugi, Japan. The model will be produced locally at DFL's Huadu plant in Guangdong province.

Livina C-Gear

The Livina series consists of three variants: the Livina Geniss (the Grand Livina in other markets), a multi-purpose vehicle; Livina, a hatchback; and Livina C-Gear, a sporty hatchback. The Livina series has already been introduced in Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan and South Africa where it has received several accolades, including "Car of the Year" in Indonesia and "Best MPV and Best Station Wagon" in South Africa.

The third variant will be introduced next in Indonesia.
