Graceful, Elegant Exterior Styling
new, meticulously executed exterior design presents a modern, artistic
form. Defined by its bold yet elegant character line, which forms a
sweeping arc extending from the front to the rear of the vehicle.
powerful front end is highlighted by a new grille, bumper and headlight
design. The grille is composed of horizontal bars, with a
three-dimensional look as if cut from a sphere, while the headlights
are designed with a vertical motif that flows dynamically from the
front. Bi-xenon headlights and Active AFS (Adaptive Front lighting
System) are offered as a factory-installed option on the Teana 250XV
and 350XV models.
Teana’s body side treatment blends
richly flared body panels with boldly curved lines. The elegant,
six-light windows are designed to emphasize the luxurious space of the
interior. The outside mirrors are also optimally shaped to minimize
wind noise and the side moldings are executed in a sword motif,
imparting a sense of fine quality.
In the rear, the
combination lights’ sculpted forms project outward from the body,
creating an impressive, wide-looking rear view. The rear bumper
provides a feeling of stability and premium quality.
The Teana is
offered in a choice of six attractive exterior colors, including the
addition of Deep Amethyst Gray as an all-new Nissan color. All Teana
body colors come standard with Nissan's Scratch Shield, which
self-repairs minor scratch marks in the paint surface.
A Relaxing, Artistic Interior With Wave-like Design Themes
Teana interior is meticulously executed with an emphasis on comfort and
fine quality, combining relaxation that soothes both mind and body and
hospitality befitting a modern living room for all passengers.
seats feature a vibrational absorption urethane cushion material and
are shaped so that the occupant's entire body is uniformly supported
for enhanced ride comfort. In addition, the seat pads adopt a slab
urethane layer to form a three-layered structure that noticeably
improves the soft feeling of the seating surface. The double-stitching
and three-dimensional shape of the seats conveys an enhanced sense of
quality and outstanding workmanship.
The driver's seat
incorporates an adjustable lumbar support mechanism that reduces the
feeling of fatigue on long drives, while the front-passenger seat
continues to offer the power ottoman that has been a popular comfort
feature on the first-generation Teana.
instrument panel design is highlighted by soft padding, which appears
to “float” above the wood-grain paneling. The center cluster panel is
integrated with the instrument panel, and the new center console
design, which combines slope and wavelike cues, projects a rich
three-dimensional image. Even the door trim imparts a comfortable,
sofa-like image, while the armrest design projects the impression of
abundant size and unity with the seats.
is thoughtfully provided in the center console and the door assist
grips (excluding the driver's door) to illuminate the surrounding area.
Even the door assist grips, while based on ergonomic principles,
incorporate a wave-like line for a distinctly fresh look.
interior features created for enhanced passenger relaxation include a
front-seat ventilation system and large rear-seat headrests. (The
front-seat ventilation system and large rear-seat headrests are
factory-installed options, offered in a set together with genuine
leather seats on the Teana 250XV and 350XV.)
Teana is the
first in its class to feature a stylish glass roof, extending the open,
airy feeling of the interior to the rear-seat area. The new roof is
made completely of glass and incorporates a flexible opening/closing
mechanism. The front seat have a power glass roof and inner sunshades
over both the front and rear seats open/close by motor power (standard
on the 350XV and a factory-installed option on the 250XV, 250XL and
In addition, Teana comes with an intelligent
air-conditioning system featuring a one-touch clean air filtering
function for improving the interior air quality at the touch of a
button (standard on the 250XV and 350XV and a factory-installed option
on all other models).
Teana’s new Bose surround sound
audio system is designed to deliver concert-hall-like sound quality.
The multiple channels of this Bose-original digital surround sound
system reproduce the sounds of musical instruments and singing voices
with real, three-dimensional quality – as if listening to a live
performance. Bose Centerpoint™* signal processing circuitry also
reproduces two-channel asynchronous sound sources such as conventional
CDs and DVDs in a 5.1-channel surround sound format for listening
quality comparable to that of home theater systems. The Bose system is
standard on the 350XV and a factory-installed option on the 250XV.
* Centerpoint™ is a registered trademark of Bose Corporation of the U.S.
new Teana also comes with Nissan's HDD-based CARWINGS navigation
system, featuring a touch panel screen for greatly improved ease of
operation. In addition to navigation functionality, the system
incorporates enhanced entertainment capabilities, including a music box
and DVD audio/video playback. It also includes a Bluetooth hands-free
interface (standard on the 250XV and 350XV and a factory-installed
option on all other models).
Nissan's Intelligent Key
System is also standard on all models. This system provides improved
anti-theft functionality, including electric-assisted power steering
lockup, engine immobilizer and other deterrents linked to the ID code
stored in the key fob.
Significantly Enhanced Performance and a Flat, Comfortable Ride
fundamental attributes of the new VQ25DE engine and the VQ35DE V6
engines have been thoroughly enhanced to deliver class-leading
performance. The 2.5-liter VQ25DE engine generates maximum power of 136
kW (185 PS) at 6000 rpm and maximum torque of 232 N-m (23.7 kgm) at
The larger 3.5-liter VQ35DE engine produces
maximum power of 185 kW (252 PS) at 6000 rpm and maximum torque of 335
N-m (34.2 kgm) at 4400 rpm. Both of these VQ engines deliver 80% of
their maximum torque at 1600 rpm for exceptional driving ease, combined
with smooth, effortless revving to 6000 rpm for acceleration
The VQ engines utilize a six-point engine
mounting system that better disperses engine torque-induced vibration
and has lower spring constants for reduced engine noise during
Teana 4WD models utilize the
QR25DE engine, which achieves a 4% improvement in power output, as well
as greater torque at low to intermediate speeds. This engine generates
maximum power of 123 kW (167 PS) at 5600 rpm and maximum torque of 240
N-m (24.5 kgm) at 4000 rpm.
Both the VQ25DE and QR25DE engines operate on regular gasoline in consideration of better economy.
Teana models are fitted with Nissan's new XTRONIC CVT (Continuously
Variable Transmission) incorporating Adaptive Shift Control (ASC), a
newly developed shift control system. ASC controls the shift timing
according to the driver's personal driving style and the driving
environment in order to optimize both power performance and fuel
economy. The XTRONIC CVT used on the 3.5-liter-equipped models also
includes a six-speed manual shift mode and features a synchro-rev
control system that controls the throttle during a downshift to
synchronize the engine speed with the transmission for smooth,
Teana is the first Nissan model in
the Japanese market to feature the newly developed “D” platform. This
platform optimally balances a flat, comfortable ride with the
quietness, superb handling and stability of a car one class higher.
help ensure high body stiffness, the Teana adopts an X-shaped cowl top
structure for increased coupling stiffness with the instrument panel
and a new joint member structure for greater coupling stiffness between
the upper and lower structures. Along with the extensive use of a high
grade of ultra-high tensile steel (980 MPa class), the body has a
multiple load path construction that better absorbs and disperses
impact energy. This further evolution of Nissan's high-strength Zone
Body achieves both enhanced crashworthiness and weight savings.
newly developed front suspension incorporates shock absorbers with
built-in rebound springs that suppress the extension stroke during body
roll to provide stable cornering performance. A newly developed
multi-link suspension is used at the rear. Additionally, the shock
absorbers are positioned closer to the tires to provide excellent
driving stability, even at a lower level of damping force.
attention was also paid to the control of noise, vibration and
harshness. Low interior noise levels are achieved through effective
isolation of noise outside the cabin by applying paint sealer and foam
materials to block tiny holes and gaps in the body structure and by
optimally positioning sound-absorbing materials.
