It is no secret that the Nissan Evalia has had a tough time finding buyers in the popular MPV segment of India. Often criticized for being too utilitarian for personal usage, the highly practical Evalia has severely struggled to sell in respectable numbers.
Which is why, Nissan, in a bid to push sales of its MPV offering, launched the facelifted version in October last year. Featuring a series of improvements in term of design, equipment and ergonomics, the Evalia facelift hopes to find more buyers.
In the top-spec model, the facelifted Evalia gets the much needed captain seats for the middle row, sliding window for the middle row, new 15-inch alloy wheels, reverse parking camera and a 2-DIN entertainment system. Nissan, however, has made no changes to the mechanicals and the Evalia continues to be powered by the brand’s trusty 1.5-litre K9K diesel engine.
The facelifted Evalia is already on sale and is up against the mighty Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the Chevrolet Enjoy. Datsun’s recently introduced the GO+ MPV, too, which will soon enter the battle in the entry-level MPV segment.
