This Nissan Teana model was developed as a global model for more than 120 countries, including Japan, U.S., China and Malaysia. Launched in Japan in February 2014 and bookings started in Malaysia in May 2014 it was targeted to compete with the popular Honda Accord.
Launched in June 3rd 2014 at a selling price starting from RM139,800 for the 2.0L XE model and up to RM169,900 for the 2.5L X, this business sedan did well at all showrooms.

Even with the NISMO makeover, sales were not so good and by 2019 the Teana was discontinued. Now comes news that there are some 2019 model Teana’s ready to sale and the numbers are limited. The discount offered is RM38,800 and it is for the 2.5L version only.
Additional features that come with this last batch Teana are, Intelligence Around view Monitor with 4 Cameras, 8″ Head unit , DVD slot , Offline Navigation with Mirror Link and Blind-Spot warning system. The final selling price of this car is RM120,000.
PRESS RELEASE: For this generation, the designers gave the exterior a shot of adrenaline, making it look sportier and more vibrant by way of a wider, more aggressive stance. The Teana has an enhanced overall presence thanks to sharp character lines extending from the front face rearward that evoke fluid momentum, and its stately front grille that sits between canted headlamps. The car’s svelte profile results in improved aerodynamic efficiency in a classic display of form following function.
This was a third-generation Teana and it inherited the concept of Omotenashi (hospitality) from its predecessor. The cabin is highlighted by a distinct character line that stretches from the instrument panel to the door trim, reminiscent of a majestic bird with its wings spread out. Again, form follows function as the elegant presentation of the interior also results in plenty of space for occupants.
The front seat design features “Spinal Support Technology,” which greatly improves passenger comfort. The driver is assured of the ideal driving position, thanks to enhanced seat adjustability, a telescopic and tilting steering wheel and the easy-to-use placement of the shift handle.
The front passenger seat was modified with an enlarged support area of the ottoman, providing more comfort than ever, while rear-seat occupants were treated to ample knee room. Also, interior noise had been greatly reduced in this Teana.
Teana driving comfort for long road trips
This Teana is equipped with a multi-link rear suspension system that delivers good turn-in response, supple ride quality and improved overall handling, giving the driver a sense of adventure and security. The Active Trace Control refines handling through all variety of corners by minimizing steering corrections.
Providing the power is the popular QR25 engine that comes mated to Nissan’s XTRONIC CVT. The two combine to deliver good acceleration off the line, as well as an ample supply of low- and mid-range torque, handy when overtaking slower vehicles. And thanks in part to revised ratios of the XTRONIC CVT, this Teana also exceled in fuel economy (14.4km/L).
