Part of the crash test’s success is attributed to the Teana’s impressive safety kit which includes six airbags, Vehicle Dynamic Control (also known as ESC), Active Understeer Control and Traction Control System. The test crash unit is assembled in Thailand, but is exactly the same Teana we’re getting in terms of specifications.
To date, over 600,000 units of the third-gen Teana has found new homes worldwide since its launch in February 2013. Look out for our review of the 2.0L Nissan Teana that will be out soon!
