It may be the best-selling non-national MPV in the market but without a bit of freshening up, it could start to look old and not one to take things for granted, Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) has updated the Nissan Grand Livina this month.

The update has been done in collaboration with AUTECH, a well known pro tuner in Japan. Most obvious is a distinctive new chrome front grille over the new front bumper with a chrome finish. There are also new AUTECH 15-inch alloy wheels with a diamond-cut, gunmetal-textured finish on each of their six spokes for more depth in appearance. To identify the new model, an AUTECH emblem is present on the tailgate.

Besides the standard range of body colours available, the Grand Livina AUTECH can also be ordered in a classy new Bronze Gold Finish. The other colours are Tungsten Silver, Brilliant White, Twilight Gray, Chardonnay Gold and Sapphire Black.

Inside the spacious cabin, the notable upgrade is in the leather upholstery, available in brown or black, along with an integrated multimedia system with a 6-inch touchscreen. The system includes a GPS route navigation system, reverse camera, DVD player, USB and Bluetooth connectivity as well as an optional 10.2-inch ceiling-mounted LCD monitor for the rear occupants. Customers can also include V-Kool Solargard Armorcoat window tinting for reduce glare and heat transmission into the cabin.

Commenting on the launch of the new variant, Dato’ Dr Ang Bon Beng, Executive Director of ETCM said: “The innovative team at AUTECH has not just given the Grand Livina a facelift but elevated it to suit today’s drivers’ personality and lifestyle. And with Hari Raya around the corner, this is the ideal vehicle for a smooth pleasurable drive together with your friends and family with uncompromised safety and most definitely, in style.”

On-the-road prices for the new 1.8-litre Grand Livina AUTECH start from RM105,800.00 (Peninsular Malaysia, registration for private use). It’s now in all ETCM Nissan showrooms nationwide and if you go to the 1 Utama shopping centre in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, you can also find the new model there from July 11 -15.
