Nissan Introduce a Diesel Dualis
The 2013 Nissan Dualis has finally introduced a diesel engine version and a range of new features as the updated model of its Dualis crossover was released Down Under. Only available with a manual transmission, so if that doesn’t rule you out then it was well worth the wait. The 96kW/320Nm 1.6-litre four cylinder turbo-diesel engine as standard fit has a selective six-speed manual transmission with a single front-wheel-drive Dualis TS trim. It also has a Euro 5 Emission rating which means it has the best fuel efficiency in its segment. Whether it’s through country or city the Dualis TS will only use as little as 4.5 litres per 100kms, which would equate to around 1,445kms out of a single tank! Hard to compete with that! Not only does it have great fuel efficiency but it also comes with chrome headlights, rear privacy glass, fog lights and 17 inch alloy wheels.
With sufficient levels of low-down torque, the Dualis TS allows for a smooth ride, that means even less confident manual drivers may want to test drive the model. The predictable pedal box is responsive allowing for heightened control. The Dualis TS has a strong pull uphill and overtakes with consummate ease; the car’s acceleration is nothing less of sporty, much like the set up of the suspension. The drive quality means there is an accurate and quick response to steering input.
Equipment levels substantial for the price with the lone TS-grade Dualis diesel offering 17-inch alloy wheels, cloth upholstery, a tilt-reach adjustable steering column, satellite navigation, a reversing camera, manual air-conditioning, single CD tuner, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, cruise control, power windows and mirrors, remote central locking and front fog lights as standard.
The Dualis TS is a capable sub-compact SUV that ticks all the boxes by giving it a performance boost and economy reduction.
