Dongfeng Nissan Launches The ‘R30’ Based On The ‘March’
Here is another rebadging project coning from China. Called the Venucia it is an entirely new brand which enters its fourth production model called R30 at the Chinese market. Venucia is a product of the Dongfeng Nissan Passenger Vehicle Company (DFL-PV). The R30’s development was based on Nissan’s global platform and will be specifically built for the Chinese market. R30 aims to attract buyers in terms of affordability and quality.
Its cockpit is generous as it has a wheelbase of 2450 mm and exterior dimensions of 3775 x 1665 x 1530 mm. The car is powered by the 1.2-liter HR12DE engine. It is powerful but at the same time has similar fuel consumption to most of its peers, which have 1.0-liter engines. The R30 just like the Nissan March is agile enough to deliver spirited performance and a minimum turning radius of 4.5m.
Venucia R30 is based on the March or Micra Nissan model. It has been given a brand new luxury dashboard, new steering wheel, console with instruments and different centre consol. Nevertheless, the circular AC vents and the basic layout are the same as Nissan’s model.
The Venucia gets seats with integrated headrests, dual front airbags and a music system. The exterior silhouette of the R30 is similar to this of Mirca. However, there are some substantial changes done to the front and rear fascias.
