Sales of the budget equivalent of Nissan X-Trail startedApril 23, 2020
The new Venucia Star crossover is a joint development of Nissan and Dongfeng.
On Thursday, April 23, sales of the Venucia Star crossover began, which in many ways resembles the popular Nissan X-Trail. However, the car from China turned out to be more budget. Starting today, you can pre-order a car, and the first copies will reach customers in May of this year.
The crossover is built on the VSA platform, which was created by Nissan specialists for the Chinese brand. Its main feature is the ability to use hybrid engines and an all-wheel drive system. Dimensions Venucia Star is 4691x1905x1706 mm with a wheelbase of 2 756 mm. Many technical solutions were also borrowed from Nissan.
A soft hybrid is used as the power plant – it consists of a 1.5-liter turbo engine with a return of 190 hp. and 48 volt battery.
Due to the starter-generator, the car has excellent dynamics when starting from a place, and when braking, it helps to store electrical energy. In tandem with the power plant will operate a 7-band “robot”. The developers equipped the Venucia Star salon with large displays – the virtual dashboard will receive a 12.3-inch screen, and the vertical tablet of the multimedia complex has a diagonal of 15.6 inches.
The specialists also took care of the comfort of passengers – the front will have a retractable footrest, and the rear seat can be expanded to a “lying” position. For such a rich technical equipment, the car turned out to be quite budgetary – dealers asked for 110,000 yuan for the starting equipment. While the Nissan X-Trail will cost at least 188,800 yuan
